Surveen Chawla broke many hearts when she took it to twitter to share her fairytale love story.
She shared a romantic picture with her husband Akshay Thakker captioning it: “And just like that, right in the middle of an extra-ordinary life, love gave us a fairy tale… #Married #bliss #EternalLove #GiveUsYourLove&Blessings”
What came as a surprise is that Surveen tied the knot with her businessman hubby Akshay Thakker in 2015 and kept her marriage under sheets until now. When a leading news portal asked about it, she explained,
Yes, I am married. I have known Akshay for long. It was a personal choice to not talk about the marriage. We wanted to break the news just before our Indian wedding, which was scheduled to take place this month. However, we had to postpone it to 2018, following a loss in the family.”
Surveen honestly accepted that the reason behind hiding her marriage initially was also the fear that it might impact her filmy career.
She added, Initially,
yes, as my films were up for release. But I soon crossed that bridge and realised that a talented actor will shine irrespective of her marital status. We need to take a cue from the West and get over such stigmas. International actresses go about flaunting their love life, marriage and babies without a care in the world. What matters is what I am doing on screen. Also, we suffered a personal loss and didn’t know how to go about announcing the wedding then.”
She had a beautiful Italian style wedding on July 28, 2015, in Northern Italy which was a close-knit affair with friends and family only.
