There have been many celebrities in Bollywood who had got married either in a hush hush manner or rather secretly.

The last couple days, there have been news buzz all over about the Thappad actress getting married to her boyfriend of many years Mathias Boe.

Let’s take a quick look at the different celebrities who had got married secretly. 

Preity Zinta and Gene Goodenough
After having undergone a not so memorable relationship with Ness Wadia, Preity Zinta ultimately decided to end the relationship for good. It was around this time, she met gene Goodenough, who was rumoured to be one of Ness’ close friends, but, was standing by Preity through the entire time. There were many media reports about Preity Zinta being in a ‘happy space with a happy guy from LA’, although there was no mention about the name and other details of the guy.

On the day and date of February 29, 2016, Preity Zinta walked down the altar with Gene Goodenough in an extremely private ceremony which was held in LA. The ceremony was attended by a few family members of the actress and extremely close friends like Sussanne Khan and Surily Goel. After about two years of their marriage, Preity Zinta decided to add the ‘G’ of her husband’s initials to her name and thus, she became Preity G Zinta.

Sidharth and Aditi Rao Hydari
This is one wedding which was being awaited and speculated by many for quite sometime now. Even though they have always been in the news because of their relationship, neither of them ever officially confirmed their relationship status. But, one thing was for sure, sooner or later, wedding bells for this ‘much-in-love’ couple was very much in the making.

The lovely couple Aditi Rao Hydari and Siddharth got secretly married on March 26, with the venue chosen to be Sri Ranganayakaswamy Temple Mandapam in Telangana’s Srirangpur.

As per the reports available, the couple is now going to be making an official announcement about the wedding very soon.

By their own admission, in an interview with Bollywood Bubble, the awesome couple of Govinda and Sunita revealed that theirs was a secret marriage. And, when asked for the reason to keep their marriage a secret, Sunita revealed that they had got married in the year 1987, when Govinda was at the peak of his career.

But, the duo had kept their marriage a secret one for many days.

Looking back, Urmila and Mohsin had reportedly met each other at Manish Malhotra’s niece, Riddhi Malhotra’s wedding in the year 2014. This was reportedly followed by the romantic pursuing by Mir, who, ultimately managed to get a yes from Urmila to be his life partner. The duo, then, got married in a private ceremony on March 3, 2016, at Urmila’s house!

In a statement regarding her wedding, Urmila had said, “We kept it an exclusive wedding with just family and friends at the celebration. Since our families wanted the wedding to be a low-key affair. We mutually decided to keep it private. We seek your blessings on embarking this new journey of our lives.”
