Recently, during an interview, Soundarya revealed that she was very tensed as her son Ved was not at the mandap during the muhurtam. But it was then; Vishagan turned to her and promised that he will not marry her until Ved arrived at the mandap. She said,"Ved took a liking the first time he met Vishagan. I showed him Vishagan's picture and said: "see daddy". Vishagan is very patient with Ved. It was the Muhurtham time and Ved wasn't at the Mandapam yet. I was really tensed but Vishagan turned towards me and said, "I will not marry you until Ved arrives." Ved feels a sense of protection with Vishagan and that's what I needed. We wanted our kid to see and know everything. Vishagan actually asked permission from Ved if he could marry me and we have taken a video of that. We will show Ved the video once he turns 18."
