Gurmeet Choudhary and Debina Bonnerjee or shall we say, Ram and Sita, of Indian television, are a happily married couple. The two came in the limelight when they played the protagonists in ‘Ramayan’.
Recently, Couple was in news when their secret wedding pictures were leaked online.
Everyone knows that Gurmeet and Debina got married in year 2011 but that it not the truth. Couple actually got married in year 2006 without their parents.
The much-in-love couple began dating in 2006 and married in the same year. The wedding ceremony was taken in complete secrecy.
While talking to Bollywoodlife.com, Gurmeet said “We told our families only a year and a half ago when we made a name for ourselves.”
He further added “A lot of people think that I and Debina met while filming for Ramayan, and then we got married in 2011. Very few know that when we were nothing, we weren’t actors, we were only looking for work – we were just 19 and 20 years old, we eloped and got married, in 2006. We did not tell our parents. Our friends helped us to get married at a temple in Goregaon.”
While giggling in between sentences, probably reminiscing the crazy time when he and Debina pulled this off, Gurmeet added,”You can see in the pictures that we both are very young. My best friend asked to make a serious face for the camera, or else I would look too young.” Well, he does look a little too young. But also a little angry? “Because I made a face too serious, I am looking like I am angry,” he revealed.
“We told our families only a year and a half ago, when we made a name for ourselves, people started recognizing us, and we had money, car and a house – then we got married again in 2011. But in that marriage we did not perform all the rituals. I did not come riding a horse or anything. On the same day, as that in 2006, we opted for a court marriage in 2011,” he said.
Further he added that their families had no reaction upon learning about their 2006 wedding, as the two were well-settled with their careers. “I believe they must have felt that we should have told them back in 2006 only so that they could also have been a part of our marriage rituals,” he said.
Talking about his wife Debina, Gurmeet said “Every parent wants that their daughter should marry a guy who is earning good, but when I was getting married I had nothing. I did not have a house, a car, or any money. All I had was Debina and her support. All I had was Debina’s trust in me that I will become someone one day. Such trust and belief is not shown by many,”
On the work front, Gurmeet will be seen in bollywood movie ‘Laali Ki Shaadi Mein Laaddoo Deewana’.
