While Bollywood fans were busy celebrating Shahid Kapoor and Mira Rajput’s big fat wedding, another Bollywood actor, Minissha Lamba, quietly tied the knot with longterm boyfriend Ryan Tham at a private ceremony with close friends and relatives in attendance. Though the wedding came as a big surprise to people, it was expected from Minissha, who’s a private person and prefers to stay away from the media glare.
Here are excerpts from an exclusive telephonic interview soon after her wedding:
What a surprise! When did you get married?
Yesterday (July 6). We finalised it two months back. We were not really sure about how it should be done, we talked and decided that a quiet intimate wedding ceremony was something we were comfortable with right now.
Considering your love for privacy in everything you do, it doesn’t come as a big surprise?
I guess so. But we are planning a grand affair when the weather becomes a little better. We will invite everybody we know. It will take place in Mumbai.
And what after this. Where are you going for honeymoon?
My husband has to be at work. So honeymoon will happen in time, I guess.
Who all attended the wedding?
All friends, family, close friends, friends of friends. Basically those who you can see in the picture that was shared on Twitter. (More pics)
Do you think marriage will change you in some way?
I don’t know. It has only been 24 hrs. You can probably ask me this question after a year.
Were you nervous before the wedding?
I didn’t get any jitters probably because the affair was simple, intimate, quiet. It was a day to rejoice and have fun with people we are close with. I prefered it to a ceremony attended by 200-400 people.
Where did you first meet Ryan? Was it love at first sight?
We met at his nightclub. He ignored me a couple of times. It was after a few weeks that we got talking at a friend’s place. I don’t know about love at first sight, but it was definitely liking at first sight. After I dated him for a few months, I knew he was the one. There were no two ways.
