While the professional front is at a satisfying level, there is happy news from Ashwin on his personal front too. Yes, this young lad is getting married soon. “I will be getting married in the third week of December to Sonali. She is from Chennai and has done her Masters from National Institute of Design, Ahmedabad. She is a very creative person and is currently a freelance designer.

I met Sonali many years ago when I was trying to make short films. We had known each other for some time. I took her on a fishing boat and proposed. I had planned and put some lights on the boat, spent the afternoon there and surprised her. At that point in time, it was more of a formality as we had been seeing each other for some time. I am quite happy and looking forward to entering this new phase in my life”.
