Secret marriages
There are some actors in the Hindi film industry who have no qualms in discussing the 'special someone' in their lives, then there are some who like to stick to the 'We are just friends' comment despite being spotted together at every event and then there are some who guard their personal lives with fearsome secrecy.

On May 24, 2010, Dil Chahta Hai actress Sonali Kulkarni got married to Nachiket Pantvaidya in Pune in a quiet ceremony.

Nachiket (MD of Fox Television Studios) had been dating Sonali for some time, but the couple had been so secretive about their relationship and the subsequent wedding that it took even their close friends by surprise.

We take a look at other such chuppa rustoms in Bollywood.

They are the one of the most good-looking couples of Bollywood. Dharmendra and Hema Malini tied the knot on May 2, 1980. Dharmendra, who was already married to Prakash Kaur could not marry Hema as his first wife refused to divorce him. Not the ones to give up so easily, the duo converted to Islam and married under that civil code, rather than waiting for Dharmendra's divorce to come through.
