If your father has died after 2005 then you are entitled to equal share in his ancestral property with his other sons and daughters and living wife.
If he ahs died without Will then you are entitled to equal share in his self acquired property also and in respect of the self acquired property it is irrelevant whether he has died beofre or after 2005.
Date of your marriage is no consideration.

1. Assuming that your father had not executed WILL, his first wife and her children and children born from the second marriage are entitled to equal share in the property.
2.Since your father's first wife is alive, his second wife is not entitled to share in the property of her deceased husband, who has died intestate.

As the second marriage of your father is illegal your mother does not have a share in the property of your father, but you do have a share equal to the share of other heirs. You can cull out your share by filing a lawsuit for partition in the court. The date of your marriage is immaterial in so far as your right to succession is concerned.

If your father's first wife is still alive, your mother shall not entitled to a share in his intestate properties.  
You, along with your own blood siblings as well as your father's first wife and their children will be jointly entitled to a share in the properties left behind interstate.
