Meghna Naidu, who rose to fame with hit video song ‘Kaliyon Ka Chaman’ has recently hit the headlines as the actress recently surprised everyone with the news of her marriage.
Yes, the actress, who has worked in shows like Sasural Simar Ka and Jodha Akbar, tied the knot 2 years back to Portuguese tennis player Luis Miguel Reis and has kept the marriage a secret ever since.
While talking to Bombay Times, Meghna revealed that she got married in Mumbai on December 25, 2016 following a courtship of six years.
She said, “Luis and I were happy enjoying the ‘no-attention’ phase after marriage. We didn’t feel anything was amiss as long as my family and friends knew about it. Also, I am not a huge fan of big weddings, as I feel the bride and groom feel lost at such events. I always felt that special occasions need to be celebrated with special people. My wedding happened exactly the way I had dreamed. It’s only recently that I told Luis that I would like to make it official. He said, ‘What’s stopping you?’. So, here I am announcing it finally.”

Meghna Naidu gets secretly married
Meghna further mentioned, “It was an overnight decision to tie the knot, as the actress didn’t even get the time to go shopping. Meghna got married on her mother’s birthday. She recalls, “Luis asked my mother what she wanted for her birthday gift. She told us, ‘It’s time you guys got married’. It was so random that I didn’t even get the time to do my shopping or apply mehndi. It was like chat mangni pat byah. We went to an Aiyappa temple and got married according to Hindu rituals. We also plan to have a Church wedding, sometime next year. We have all the time to plan a Christian wedding.”
Talking about her love story with Luis, Meghna said, “I was introduced to Luis by my father, who has been a tennis coach. We dated briefly, but then grew apart and lost touch. He is 10 years older than me and he must have thought that I was too young and maybe, unsure about the relationship. He reconnected with me on social media eight years ago and we got together again. My parents were extremely happy when I told them that I am dating Luis. The first thing they said was that he is a great guy. We play the same sport and and I feel a strong ‘tennis’ connection with him. We also share the passion for travelling. I am constantly shuttling between Mumbai, Portugal and Dubai, where Luis runs his tennis academy. I have been working less because I am not in Mumbai all the time. I can say that our honeymoon is still continuing (smiles).”
Congratulations to the couple!
