Marriage under wraps!Prithwish Ganguly, TNN, Feb 20, 2011, 12.00am IST
Bollywood superstars, be it Shah Rukh Khan or Ajay Devgn, have no issues flaunting their marriages. But some TV actors believe in keeping their marriage under wraps!
Let's take the case of Gurmeet Chaudhury and Debina Bonnerjee, who publicly tied the knot a few days ago. But there's buzz that the couple's been married for a while now even though they told the world that they were in a live-in relationship.
Then there's actress Rukhsar who married director Farukh Kabir a year ago, but declared to the world only a few weeks back. Kabir says, "Rukhsar and I married impulsively and we wanted this to come out when the time was right. I was directing my first film and there was a lot of pressure on me. At that stage, I did not want my marriage to become the talking point. Rukhsar too needed to sit down and talk before announcing that we were married."
Bidaai's Angad Hasija
tried his level best to keep people from knowing about his wife Pari
. His colleague Kinshuk Mahajan too didn't reveal about his long-standing relationship until recently. Rather strange because there clearly is no reason why these actors should keep their relationship status a closely-guarded secret. "Viewers don't really care about a TV actor's personal life. It's not like they are going to be disappointed if they hear about a TV actor being married even if that actor is their favourite. And anyway a TV actor's popularity lasts only as long as the show is on air. So it's indeed strange for actors to portray their single guy image. Girls
probably hide it because they are worried about losing out on lead roles, which also makes no sense," points out a TV serial director.
And while on marriage, Sara Khan
and Ali Merchant
take the cake. The two got married a couple of years ago and kept that a secret. And recently they got married on Bigg Boss. Their marriage is in trouble, but Sara even today insists that they weren't married before. "No one wants to play with marriage. It is sacred," she says. Hmmm.... what do we say now?
