In the world of Bollywood where most celebs have grand weddings in full pomp and show, there are many who prefer to keep their personal lives under wraps. This year, some of b-town’s most admired celebs exchanged rings in a private ceremony away from the paparazzi. Here are a few couples who took everyone by surprised when they finally made their wedding announcement.
Arijit Singh and Koel Roy
Bollywood’s singing sensation, Arijit Singh, recently got married to his childhood friend Koel Roy in yet another private affair. Sources reveal that it is the second marriage for both of them. Arijit was earlier married to one of his co-contestant from a reality show, while Koel has 4 year old daughter. Away from the media and glamour, the couple tied the knot on 20th January 2014 in Tarapith, West Bengal.
John Abraham and Priya Runchal
Earlier this year, handsome hunk John Abraham shocked his fans when he disclosed his marriage with Priya Runchal. Earlier in 2013, the actor hinted that he may get married soon in the presence of only close family members. Though the news spread like fire, yet no one took it so seriously. By the end of December 2013, the actor finally exchanged rings with his investment banker girlfriend in a private affair in New York. The news came around when he tweeted about it on New Year’s Eve. We’re sure it broke a lot of hearts 😉
Rani Mukerji and Aditya Chopra
Their love story was always a mystery as the couple never disclosed much about their personal lives. Rani however did let out a few hints during several interviews with the media. A noticeably large precious stone on her ring finger raised suspicion and news of her being engaged began to circulate. To top it all, the curiosity increased when pictures of her celebrating Diwali inside Aditya’s bungalow was leaked. The couple finally took their vows in Italy on April 21st 2014 after which the news was disclosed by a close source.
Rani later made a statement saying, “I would like to share the happiest day of my life with all my fans all over the world whose love and blessings have been part of my journey all these years. I know that all my well-wishers who have waited for this day will be really happy for me. It was a beautiful wedding in the Italian countryside with just a few of our close family and friends with us. The one person I missed terribly was Yash Uncle, but I know he was there with us in spirit and his love and blessings will always be with Adi and me. I have always believed in fairy-tales and with God’s grace my life has been exactly like one, and now as I enter the most important chapter of my life – the fairy-tale continues.” Shahrukh Khan and Uday Chopra also tweeted their heartfelt wishes to the newly wedded couple.
It’s not the first time Bollywood is experiencing such surprise weddings. In the past years, several celebs escaped the media by marrying secretly. The list includes Konkona Sen Sharma-Ranvir Shorey, Madhuri Dixit-Sriram Nene, Juhi Chawla-Jay Mehta, Amitabh Bachchan-Jaya Bhaduri, Rhea Pillai-Sanjay Dutt and many more. We wonder who is next in line to surprise us.
