Dileep and Kavya Madhavan marriage was kept a secret affair till the very last. The wedding was held on November 25 in Kochi. The ceremony was a secret affair with the 200 guests being told that they were coming for a movie viewing of Pooja’s film. The star couple wanted to avoid the media spotlight on their special day and the news comes as a surprise to their fans. The event took place in a hotel between 9-10 am with celebrities like Lal, Menaka, Kaviyoor Ponnama, Chippia, KPAC Lalitha and Joemol in attendance. Just before the ceremony took place, Dileep decided to share the news with his fans in a Facebook Live video, saying, “I am here to tell you about a big event happening in my life today. I am getting married today. When I thought of a marriage, I discussed it with my daughter, her mother, my friends and family and arrived at a decision. My partner is a person who has been linked to me in gossip magazines. I earnestly hope all Malayalis and people around the world who love me would shower your blessings on us and remember us in your prayers. Please do not create controversies out of this. Bless us instead.”
The couple exchanged garlands with Kavya going first and then Dileep placed the mangalsutra around her neck. The couple then got the blessing of director Kamal, who was the reason they met when they both worked on his film. Other members of the film industry who attended the wedding included Mammotty, Jayaram, Nadirshah and Ranjit.
The couple, which for a long denied any rumours about getting married, is all set to fly to Dubai for their honeymoon and the date of their reception has not been announced as yet, according to the Indian Express. Sridevi Sreedhar, the wife of trade analyst and critic Sreedhar Pillai, said there would be a live telecast of the wedding on the TV channel Matrubhumi. She tweeted, “#Dileep #KavyaMadhavan wedding live telecast on Matrubhumi news channel. A very simple wedding 4 the #Luckypair of Malayalam cinema.”
