Television personalities Kishwer Merchantt and Suyyash Rai tied the knot on Friday evening. The ceremony, which was a registered marriage, was attended by the couple’s family and a few close friends. The newlyweds later hosted a reception for their industry friends.
The couple, who met on the set of Pyaar Ki Yeh Kahaani, dated for six years before the wedding. Their courtship, however, had its share of struggles. The fact that Kishwer is older than Suyyash by eight years didn’t go down well with their families initially. The couple took some time but managed to convince their folks that they wanted to be together.
Always open about their relationship, the duo even participated together on the ninth season of Bigg Boss, last year. “Kishwer and Suyyash registered their marriage in the presence of parents and a very few other people. Kishwer was dressed in a red lehenga while Suyyash was wearing a cream jacket,” a source told indianexpress.com. Suyyash’s look is reportedly inspired by Ranveer Singh’s from Bajirao Mastani.

Suyyash earlier shared with the media that he has planned a surprise for her at the reception, which will be on Friday night. He said, “There is a performance by both of us at the reception and I have also planned a surprise for Kishwer about which no one else knows, not even my family.”
