Says bride-to-be Celina Jaitly

It is time for wedding bells. Celina Jaitly will become Mrs Peter Haag on September 23 at a very private wedding and only the couple's family and close friends will be present.

The actress had planned not to get married before 2012. But now that the couple is sure of their feelings for one another, waiting seems futile.

The wedding will take place in Egypt despite the anti-government unrest in the country.

Incidentally, Jaitly is the country's tourism ambassador.

Only in Egypt

Says the shaken but confident bride-to-be, "I'm sure everything will be back to normal in Egypt by September.

Peter and I will take our marriage vows in Egypt and nowhere else. We had decided that when we decided to get married. That won't change."

The actress is in constant touch with the Egyptian authorities on the situation in the country.

She adds, "I'm very much in touch with Mr Khaled el Bakley the ambassador of Egypt to India, and Mr Adel el Masery, the director of Egyptian tourism.

They have ensured that every help is provided to Indian nationals stranded in Egypt.

I will visit Egypt as soon as it's possible for me to travel to the country. And yes, things better get to normal soon. Meri shaadi ka sawaal hai."

Share thoughts, prayers

She feels there is no cause for worry, "The situation always looks far more alarming from the outside than it actually is." Celina last visited Egypt last month.

" In fact, I spent an entire month there until Dec 15, 2010 for a shoot. Everything was perfectly normal and Egypt was as beautiful as ever.

I attended the Cairo Film Festival as jury for 12 days and shot for approximately a week for an ad campaign all over Cairo without a clue about any incident as such taking over Egypt.

I urge people to come forward and share their thoughts, prayers and feelings for Egypt and its people."

Celina has initiated a campaign for peace in Egypt on her official website. "It's called Pray For Egypt. Twitter followers are invited to offer their prayers for peace in the region, " she concludes serenely.
