Former beauty queen Dia Mirza is finally Mrs Sahil Sangha! She married her long time beau and business partner last night in a lavish ceremony at a farmhouse in Ghittorni, New Delhi.
The 32 year old actress had got engaged to filmmaker Sahil Sangha in New York earlier this year.
“I am very happy. It was a beautiful Arya Samaj ceremony. The vows were explained to us. It was wonderful because it was good to be conscious of what you are going through and what are the vows you are exchanging. It was a dream wedding,” Dia said post her wedding while posing for the shutterbugs outside the venue.
The former Miss Asia Pacific wore a Ritu Kumar beige and green ensemble (sharara), while Sahil sported a Raghavendra Rathore creation – an off white silk linen brocade ‘achkan’. The couple opted for an intimate Arya Samaj wedding.
“Since, I am not getting married in Hyderabad and being a Hyderabadi I chose this outfit to add some Hyderabadi flavour to my wedding. I feel like a typical Hyderabadi bride,” she said.
The wedding ceremonies were attended by family and close friends. Sushmita Sen, Lara Dutta with husband Mahesh Bhupati, Rajkumar Hirani, Zayed Khan, Sophie Choudry and Cyrus Sahukar are few of the duo’s friends from the industry who graced the occasion.
“Our friends and family worked really hard to make this a memorable day for Diya and me. We are very happy and grateful for everyone who bestowed so much love on us,” said Sahil.
Reportedly, it was Dia’s ‘Munnabhai’ co-star Boman Irani who performed the ‘kanyadaan’ ritual for the wedding and gave Dia away.
Producer Tanuj Garg took to Twitter to congratulate the couple.
Congratulations @deespeak & Sahil on starting a new journey together. All my best !!
