After many years of speculation on a romance brewing between them, Malayalam actors Dileep and Kavya Madhavan got married on Friday in a simple ceremony in a hotel in Kochi. The wedding was attended by family and close friends of the couple, including industry insiders.
The wedding came as a surprise to many guests who said that they'd been invited only the day before or on the morning of the event.
Since Friday, the wedding had excited much comment as a closure to the complicated relationship between Dileep, Kavya and Dileepâ€™s ex-wife Manju Warrier, also an actor in the Malayalam film industry. Dileepâ€™s closeness to Kavya is considered to be one of the reasons for his separation from Manju, though the latter has never officially said so.
This short video released by Dream Catcher takes us inside the much talked about wedding.
The video begins with Dileep addressing his fans, telling them that he was informing them directly about the wedding as heâ€™d promised to do. A smiling Kavya Madhavan is watching him on screen and getting ready for the ceremony.
Dileep can be seen inviting guests over the phone saying, "It's happening at Vedanta hotel. It was all decided suddenly. It's at 9.10. Please come."
Dileep and Manju's daughter, Meenakshi, is present throughout the video, showing her support for the wedding. The camera catches moments when Kavya and Meenakshi interact with big smiles all around.
Actors Jayaram, Mammooty, Siddique, Meera Jasmine, KPAC Lalitha, Kaviyoor Ponnamma, Chippy, Srinda Arhaan, and Salim Kumar, and directors Kamal and Nadirshah are some of the prominent industry faces congratulating and wishing the couple.
Meera Jasmine, who has co-starred with Dileep in a few films, and with Kavya Madhavan in "Perumazhakaalam", can be seen hugging the bride and approving of her appearance.
