Vidya Balan, Siddharth Roy Kapur tie the knot in a quiet wedding


By Hindustan Times

Bollywood diva Vidya Balan finally got married to beau Siddharth Roy Kapur in a hush-hush ceremony in Chembur early morning today. It was a temple wedding for the actress and most likely to have followed authentic Tamil traditions, confirms Mid-Day.

Vidya Balan was dressed like a traditional Tamil bride. The earthy beauty wore a nine-yard Kanjivaram saree and we are guessing it's by her favourite designer Sabyasachi.

Vidya also wore traditional South Indian gold jewellery along with some of her mother Saraswati’s ancestral baubles, reports Mid-Day.

Vidya Balan, on Wednesday, had a mehendi ceremony at her home, which was attended only by her family.

One celebrity spotted at the function was veteran actor Rekha, who arrived with vermillion (sindoor) in her hair parting, traditionally a mark of married Hindu women.

The two are known to be very close and Vidya has often said that she admires the legendary actor, who like her, also hails from Chennai.

After the ceremony, Vidya stepped out with her parents and elder sister and held up her hands to show her mehendi to the waiting media.

The actor was dressed in a Bengali style Sabyasachi Mukherjee sari paired with pearl ornaments. At the wedding, she will wear two saris since there’s a change in sari for rituals at Tamil marriages.

Sabyasachi has designed the saris in warm-shaded silk sourced from Chennai.
