Jalandhar:Indian off-spinner Harbhajan Singh today rejected reports that he is planning to marry a Bangalore-based girl Priya Reddy and said that he would tie the nuptial knot only with a Punjabi girl.

"The report published in a section of press about me getting married with the final year Psychology student at Bishop Cotton, Bangalore is totally baseless and devoid of the facts. I am not going to marry her," he said.

"Definitely, I very much know her. She is a good friend, but it does not mean I will marry her," Harbhajan told reporters here today.

"I came to know about the report when my close friends and family members rang me up to congratulate over my marriage plans," he said.

"Although I know Priya very well and even went along with her for outings, that does not mean that I am going to marry her," he said contradicting the month-old news reports in this regard.

"Even my parents scolded me for my reported decision about the marriage, which I never took. It was only after my assurance to them to abide by their decision about my marriage, they calmed down," he added.

Asked about his marriage plans, Harbhajan said that he would take a decision on the issue only after a couple of years and that too would be an arranged marriage. The bride, a Punjabi girl, would be selected only by my family members.
