And yes, Samir will invite all his Bigg Boss housemates, even the ones he didn't get along with.

Samir reasoned, "That's what decorum demands. Throughout my stint at Bigg Boss, I maintained my dignity. That's what I had promised to do to my parents. They were against me going into Bigg Boss. I had assured them that I wouldn't shame them."

"I think I kept my word. I lasted quite long in there. The whole experience taught me to be patient."

Samir and Neelam have no immediate honeymoon plans. Samir explained, "I've stayed away from Mumbai long enough because of Bigg Boss. So, no honeymoon for now."

"But yes, kids are definitely on the anvil. Both of us are so quiet, we need some activity in the house," laughs Samir.

Neelam said, "Yes, I am very happy. We plan to start a family immediately. We want lots of kids."
