Bollywood actor Vidya Balan tied the knot with UTV head Siddharth Roy Kapoor in Mumbai on Friday in a private ceremony which saw a mix of both Punjabi and Tamil traditions.
The wedding rituals went on for over an hour on Friday morning at the well-decorated Green Mile Bungalow in Bandra in the presence of family members of the bride and groom.
“The wedding ceremony was a mix of both Punjabi and Tamil traditions. The food served was South Indian,” a source close to Vidya told PTI.
The 34-year-old Vidya Balan underwent three changes in costume during the wedding ceremony, one of them being a mustard saree with a pink blouse, matching the 38-year-old groom’s yellow kurta and pink turban.
After the ceremony was over, the newly wed couple came out to pose for pictures and Vidya was seen wearing a red saree teamed with gold jewellery.
The ‘Kahaani’ star also waved her mehndi-adorned hands at the waiting media, revealing the Punjabi-style ‘chooda’ she was wearing.
The wedding festivities for the couple began on December 11 with a private dinner which was followed by a mehendi ceremony on December 12.
A few friends from Bollywood sent in their best wishes for the newly weds on Twitter.
“Congratulations to my friends Siddharth Roy Kapoor and Vidya Balan! They make such a beautiful couple.. here’s wishing them happiness forever,” tweeted actress Priyanka Chopra.
Filmmaker Madhur Bhandarkar posted, “My heart filled wishes to buddy Siddharth Roy Kapoor and Vidya Balan for the new phase of their lives together. Congratulations to the beautiful couple.”
Vidya, who never confirmed rumours about her relationship with Siddharth, stayed mum about her wedding as well and the celebrations are being kept as private as possible.
The ‘Kahaani’ actress, who was born in Kerala and grew up in Mumbai, made her Bollywood debut with the 2005 film ‘Parineeta’
She has made a mark in the Hindi film industry with films like ‘Bhool Bhulaiyaa’, ‘Paa’, ‘Ishqiya’ and ‘The Dirty Picture’.
