Chennai, Nov 28 (COIN) One of Tamil cinema’s fastest rising stars Gautham Karthik, who is also the son of veteran actor Karthik, wed actress Manjima Mohan today.
The wedding ceremony was a closed event with only a select set of close friends and family members in attendance.
The actors had announced that they were in love with each other only a few days ago on social media.
Soon after the wedding, actress Manjima Mohan posted a couple of their wedding pictures on Instagram and wrote, “Now and forever.”
Several celebrities from the film industry congratulated the couple on social media.
Earlier this week, when the couple had met the media to announce their wedding, they had said, “The wedding is going to be a small function involving only close family members. There is only one event. There is no reception as is being reported in a section of the media.”
Actor Gautham Karthik had said that it was he who first proposed to Manjima.
“I proposed to her and she took a couple of days to come back with a reply. I was nervous during those two days but she eventually said ‘yes’,” he said.
When asked if they fell in love while working with each other in the Tamil film ‘Devarattam’, both actors replied that they were just friends during the making of the film.
“It was a year after ‘Devarattam’ that we realised that this relationship might be more than just friendship,” Gautham Karthik said.
