Nandana Sen secretly marries Penguin Chairman

Daughter of Nobel Laureate and Bharat Ratna economist Amartya Sen secretly tied the knot on June 22nd  with Penguin Chairman and CEO John Makinson in a small ceremony in New York. Nandana was in a nine years of relationship with Ghajini producer Madhu Mantena, however their relationship ended after Nandana shifted her base to New York.

Nandana met John Makinson in November, 2012. A month later, they started dating and by February, 2013, the couple decided to take their relationship to the next level. In  a private ceremony, Nadana tied the knot with John in New York.

Nandana said, "Madhu and I were planning to move to New York together, but given the pace and zest with which his work in Mumbai is growing, it doesn't make sense for him to move away. We love each other deeply, we always have, and we always will. But neither of us believes in the long-term feasibility of an inter-continental relationship."

Speaking about her wedding, Nandana said, "We got married in Shelter Island. It was a very private affair."

When contacted, Mantena sounded very happy for his ex-girlfriend. "I am very thrilled and happy for Nandana. Sadly, I could not attend her wedding because Lootera, which my company Phantom Productions is co-producing with Balaji Motion Pictures, is up for release."

Nandana who debuted with ‘Rang Rasiya’ was last seen in ‘Jhootha Hi Sahi’.

Congrats to Nandana and John!
