Malayalam actors Fahadh Faasil and Nazriya Nazim, tied the knot in Thiruvananthapuram on Thursday in a traditional Muslim wedding ceremony.
The invitation to the ‘nikah’ ceremony at Al-Saj convention complex was limited to family friends, relatives and a few from the film industry and politics including Kerala Chief Minister Oommen Chandy. The grand affair in the capital city of Kerala was attended by more than 3000 guests.
In a heavily embroidered peach and black Sabyasachi lehenga, Nazriya looked ethereal. She accessorised the lehenga with a kundan necklace and a heavy neckpiece of rubies. Fahadh looked suave in a white shirt and dark grey pants with a fitted grey bandhgala half jacket.
The stage resembled a movie set with the couple’s initials engraved in the backdrop. The wedding feast had 70 varieties of delicacies for the guests. The media was kept away from the nikkah ceremony with a special chip embedded in the invite for the identification of guests and keeping gate crashers at bay. A reception will be held on August 24 at Fahadh’s hometown Pathirapally, in Alleppey.
Son of director-producer Fazil, Fahad grew closer to Nazriya during the shooting of a film. The duo got engaged in January this year after their parents agreed for the alliance.
Fahad debuted in 2002 with “Kaiyethum Doorath”, directed by his father which was not so successful. Lying low for some time, he made a comeback displaying great versatility and bagging many awards and critical appreciation for a variety of roles.
