36-year-old actor Namitha and producer Veerandra Chowdhary have tied the knot at a temple ceremony in Tirupati. The actor who was once known for her glamorous roles in south Indian cinema and recently gained popularity through television show Bigg Boss announced her wedding plans earlier this month through a video message.
Both the bride and groom were dressed in pink with Namitha opting for a saree and gold jewellery and groom sporting a sherwani. The wedding ceremony took place at the ISKCON temple on Friday at 5:30 am and the couple is expected to hold a reception in Chennai.
They later sported blue ensembles following the main ceremony. Present at the venue were families of the two cinema personalities. Actor Sarathkumar and his wife and actor Radhika were also present at the venue.
The duo have been dating for over a year. And according to a report on Hans India, the proposal was quite heartwarming too.
“One day, he took me to a candle light dinner and proposed to me. He surprised me completely and before that we have known each other for a year. As I knew him well enough, I agreed for his proposal. Then I started to know him even better and I am happy to be his life partner and make him mine,” Namitha told Hans India.
Recently, Namitha came into the limelight for her time in Bigg Boss Tamil where she was introduced as the surprise contestant. She was criticized heavily for her treatment of audience favourite Oviya, and was evicted after spending five weeks in the house.
She has also competed in the Miss India pageant in 2001, and then went on to make her debut in 2002 Telugu flick Sontham. She has acted in various Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam and Kannada films. Her popular films include Azhagiya Tamil Magan, Billa and more.
After a long period of no releases between 2013 and 2016, she appeared in Puli Murugan. In her 15-year career, Namitha has acted with several top heroes in various industries.
