Urmila Matondkar ties the knot with model Mohsin Akhtar


Bollywood actress Urmila Matondkar known for her films like ‘Rangeela', ‘Satya’, 'Bhoot', 'Ek Hasina Thi' and many more, tied the knot with Kashimiri businessman-cum-model Mohsin Akhtar Mir on Thrusday in a hush-hush ceremony. The wedding was held as per Hindu rituals at the actress' residence.

It was a low-key affair with Urmila’s close friend and well known fashion designer Manish Malhotra being the only known personality from tinsel town in the private ceremony.

A London based VJ by the name Anushka Arora revealed about Urmila’s wedding and also shared a picture of the newlyweds. “Congratulations #UrmilaMatondkar & Mohsin Akhtar! #JustMarried,” she tweeted.

Mohsin was crowned the second runner up of Mr. India in 2007. Later, he made his acting debut in Saurabh Sengupta’s 'It's A Man's World', which is India's only film on male sex workers. He was also seen in a blink-and-miss role in Farhan Akhtar starrer ‘Luck By Chance’. He also featured in A.R. Rahman’s music video ‘One Love – Taj Anthem’.

Mohsin worked as a model for Urmila's friend Manish Malhotra and that’s how the couple met. He is ten years younger to the actress.

Urmila began her career as a child artiste and was seen in Shekhar Kapur’s ‘Masoom’. She made her Bollywood debut in 1991 with 'Narsimha' opposite Sunny Deol and shot to fame with Ram Gopal Verma’s 'Rangeela'. The actress gained critical acclaim for her roles in ‘Satya’, ‘Bhoot’, ‘Pinjar’ among others. She was last seen in a Marathi film 'Ajoba'.

Just a few days ago on Monday night (February 29), actress Preity Zinta also got married to her boyfriend Gene Goodenough at a private wedding in Los Angeles. Her friends Suzanne Khan and designer Surily Goel attended the ceremony along with the couple’s family members.
