Siddharth Roy Kapur, Vidya Balan
Bollywood's latest 'ishqiya kahaani' entered a new chapter on Friday with actress Vidya Balan and Disney UTV managing director Siddharth Roy Kapur getting married in a quiet ceremony that wove together Tamil and Punjabi rituals.
Vidya, whose roles in films like 'Ishqiya', 'Kahaani' and 'The Dirty Picture' propelled her into a unique category all her own, is a Tamil. And Siddharth, who incidentally produced Vidya's acclaimed film 'No One Killed Jessica', has a Punjabi background.
Thus, both traditions were kept in mind for their exchange of vows in what was a completely private affair, close friends of the couple said.
The ceremony, which took place at the Green Gifts bungalow in upscale Bandra, was attended by the couple's family and close friends. No guests from the film industry were present.
Bride Vidya looked simple but is said to have changed her wedding attire thrice, a friend said.
Siddharth's family members were seen wearing pink saafas, and the wedding procession arrived in typical Punjabi style, complete with dhol and 'balle balles'.
The entire set-up and decoration as well as the food was Tamil style.
Vidya and Siddharth's pre-wedding celebrations kickstarted with a pre-wedding bash on December 11, which was followed by 'mehendi', again a private ceremony. Yesteryear diva Rekha was among the close friends of Vidya, who marked her presence.
A wedding reception will reportedly be held in Chennai on Saturday.
