Samir Soni and actress-turned-jewelry designer Neelam Kothari are set to tie the knot January 23.

The shy actor, who was last seen on 'Bigg Boss' said, "We will have a very quiet wedding ceremony with just our parents and siblings. We will have a wedding reception for our friends on January 26."

"We're going crazy trying to draw up a list of invitees for the reception. We've so many people to call."

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

Samir reasoned, "That's what decorum demands. Throughout my stint on '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."
