“I am not against celebrations. After all, it is my marriage but alcohol and celebratory firing spoil all the fun if anything goes wrong. And I would be the last person on earth to want celebrations turning into mourning. There have been too many incidents in the past…Besides, liquor consumption also leads to clashes. So, I am very clear about what will and what will not happen at my marriage function,” Kashyap told The Times Of India.
