Mumbai: Anas Rashid is popular for his portrayal of a perfect husband in “Diya Aur Bati Hum”, but the actor has no plans to give up his bachelor status in real life anytime soon.
He says getting married is a “long tedious process" which he “cannot commit to right now” due to his professional commitments.
Anas, who hails from Punjab, gained popularity with his character Sooraj Rathi in the Star Plus show in which he is seen supporting his wife through thick and thin.
When the 35-year-old actor was questioned about his marriage plans, the actor said he will plan to get hitched when he has some time off from shooting for the serial.
“I am shooting for 30 days a month. My character needs to be there all the time. There are days when I have to cancel my one-day off and come on set to shoot. So taking 15-20 days off to get married is impossible,” he said in a statement.
He added: “Getting married isn't easy. As for me, I would want to personally go back home and invite all my relatives, sit back and enjoy the entire festivities with them. It's a long tedious process which I cannot commit to right now.”
But has he found the love of his life?
Anas said he “will get married to the girl I like but she should also be someone who my parents approve of and accept.
"I am not looking for anyone currently but I'm sure everything will eventually fall into place," he added.
