Asin got married to Micromax co-founder Rahul Sharma on January 19 in a Christian wedding ceremony followed by Hindu rituals near Delhi. The 30-year-old ‘Ghajini’ star tied the knot in a simple, private ceremony attended by family and close friends at a resort hotel.
The Catholic style wedding, which took place in the morning around 11, had Asin dressed in a white gown and Rahul, 39, sporting a black suit and bow tie.
It was a beautiful wedding. Everyone looked amazing. It was Asin’s idea to have a Catholic wedding. We all are very happy,” said a close relative of Rahul.
Asin and Rahul’s close friend Akshay Kumar, who was also the Best Man at the wedding, shared a picture with the newlyweds.
Akshay, who has also been promoting Airlift, wished the couple a Happy married life.

Bollywood superstar and couple’s close friend Akshay Kumar attended the function. Delhi-based music group Elohim Worship band performed at the wedding.
“Everything went great at the wedding. We played 2-3 songs. Asin looked beautiful in her white gown. We had a rehearsal yesterday,” said a band member.
The evening ceremony, which included jai mala and pheras, atypical of North Indian wedding, was also attended by Akshay Kumar. The groom arrived in an open car for the baarat. Both the functions were kept private with tight security arranged at the hotel entrance.
Asin was pretty in a Sabyasachi lehenga for the evening wedding ceremony.
Asin’s fan page had shared pictures of the hotel earlier in the day.

Asin also posted photos of her wedding card on Instagram.
A get-together is expected to take place tomorrow at Rahul’s farmhouse. The couple will also hold a reception in Mumbai later.
It was revealed in August last year that the duo was seeing each other and was set to marry. Asin, known to be a private person, remained mostly silent on her love life.
