Looks like most of Bollywood is out to get married! The week began with the much-awaited nuptials of actor Sonam Kapoor and just as we finally bid goodbye to the three-day celebrations, Neha Dhupia announced that she too had tied the knot in an intimate ceremony.
And it has now been revealed that popular singer-composer Himesh Reshammiya has also said his vows in a midnight wedding on Friday.
Reshammiya took to social media to make the announcement of his marriage to long-time beau, TV actor Sonia Kapoor.
“Togetherness is bliss!,” he captioned the picture which he shared on social media of himself and his new wife.
Himesh and Sonia tied the knot at his residence in Mumbai on Friday night making this is the second marriage of the composer. Sonia is a television actor and has starred in shows such as Kaisa Ye Pyar Hai, Jugni Chali Jalandhar, Yes Boss and Remix.
Himesh had earlier said that with the muhurat of the wedding at 1.30 am, he has not invited any of his friends from the fraternity to the wedding. The wedding was an intimate affair with just the parents of the couple and Himesh’s son from his first marriage, Swayam.
“The marriage ceremony will be held at my home tonight. We plan to throw a party for our friends in the film fraternity later. Since tonight offers an auspicious mahurat, we decided to go ahead. We have been together for a long time, so marriage was a natural progression. It feels wonderful to formalise our relationship,” Himesh had said, earlier in the day.
The couple had also issued an official statement previously: “Himesh Reshammiya will tie the knot with long-time girlfriend Sonia Kapoor. A simple ceremony will be held on the night of May 11 at his residence. The ceremony will be a close-knit affair with just close family and friends. Himesh’s parents and son Swaym will also be present for the occasion.”
Himesh had last year separated from his wife of 20 years, Komal. Their decision to separate was described as amicable by Himesh. The news of their separation first came to light in September 2016 when they filed for divorce.
“Mutual respect is the most important thing in life. Giving due respect to our relationship, Komal and I have decided to part ways amicably,” Himesh had said at that time.
