In today’s time, marriage is no more a personal affair for celebrities but is also a major provider of publicity. Therefore, it has become a hot trend to have big lavish weddings which get immensely covered by media and the couple’s wedding photos rule all over the Internet. And both, film and television celebs are making full use of it. Prominent examples being Bipasha Basu-Karan Singh Grover, Neil Nitin Mukesh, Kishwer-Suyyash Rai, Divyanka Tripathi-Vivek Dahiya and the list goes on!
But there are also few celebs who decided to keep their marriage a private affair and tied the knot secretly.
Amitabh Bachchan– Big B had a very low key profile wedding ceremony with Jaya Bahaduri which was attended only family and few close friends.
Juhi Chawla– The simple-dimple beauty Juhi Chawla kept her marriage with Jai Mehta under closed curtains for a long time. But she couldn’t hide it for a long time.
Rani Mukerji– She got married to Aditya Chopra in Italy in a secret wedding. The couple is now blessed with a baby girl, Adira.
Saif Ali Khan– The Nawab Khan’s love episode with 12 years older Amrita Singh wasn’t supported and appreciated by his royal family. So the couple got hitched secretly in October 1991. However, the marriage failed after they had 2 kids, Sara and Ibrahim. Saif is now happily married to Kareena Kapoor and recently became proud father of Taimur, their first son.
Divya Bharti– Her death at the tender age of 19 years is still a mystery. Was it a suicide or a murder- is a question which still needs to be answered. The mind-blowingly gorgeous Divya was at the peak of her career when she secretly got married to producer Sajid Nadiadwala.
Sridevi and Boney Kapoor– This has been the most secret wedding in the history of Bollywood. Boney was already married when he tied the knot with Sridevi. He divorced his first wife only after he got married to Sridevi. Till then, they kept it as a top-secret.
Mithun Chakraborty– He was secretly married to Sridevi! Shocking? Well, no one knew about his marriage with Sridevi until he accepted it when a magazine published their marriage certificate.
