Former cricketer Zaheer Khan and actor Sagarika Ghatge got married on Thursday in a small ceremony in Mumbai.
According to reports, the couple had a simple court wedding which was attended by close family members. They later threw a party which was attended by many celebs from the cricket and film industries.
Among them were Sachin Tendulkar and his wife Anjali, director Abhishek Kapoor and his wife Pragya, Harbhajan Singh, actors Vidya Malavade and Hazel Keech.
Zaheer and Sagarika got engaged in May this year. While their wedding was a low key affair, the couple will reportedly host a reception for friends and family on November 27 in the Taj Mahal Palace and Tower in Mumbai.
The couple had been tight-lipped about their relationship until they announced their engagement in May. The couple reportedly met through a common friend before they went on to date each other.
"I have never spoken about my personal relationships. In fact, I have never spoken about anything to the press. Personal space is not for discussion," Sagarika had told Mid-day in February.
Speaking to Bombay Times, Zaheer and Sagarika said that both their families were accepting about an inter-religious marriage and that they consciously decided to opt for court marriage.
"We are going to stay away from both (nikaah and saat pheras). It will be a court marriage on November 27 in Mumbai. There will be a pre and post wedding functions. I am planning to have something in Pune as well, so the ceremony will go on for a few days. We want this to be a get-together for close friends and family," Zaheer said.
Sagarika is known for her performance as a hockey player in the 2007 hit Chak De India! Zaheer announced his retirement from international and first-class cricket two years back as the country's fourth-highest wicket-taker across formats.
