Malayalam stars Dileep and Kavya Madhavan got married in Kochi on Friday (November 25) amidst a gathering of select guests. The wedding came as a big surprise to everyone as even the guests were informed only hours in advance.
Speaking to media after the wedding, Dileep said, “Kavya was not the reason for whatever problems that happened in my family. So I decided if I were going to get married, I will marry someone who was made a scapegoat for my problems… In the last couple of days, I discussed with my family and daughter about this wedding. And today I am marrying Kavya with their full backing.”
The wedding took place between 9 and 10 am and about 200 guests were present at the hotel.
Among the stars, Mamooty, Jayaram, Narain, Salim Kumar, Menaka, Joemol and Chippi and director Joshy, siddique were all present at the wedding.
Dileep took to Facebook some moments before his wedding and expressed his elation over the ‘big day’ of his life. He said, “I am getting married today. When I felt I wanted to get married, my family, including my daughter came to this decision. Kavya, my friend, is someone whose name has been linked with mine in several gossips and I felt it was not appropriate for me to marry anybody else.” He appealed to everyone for their blessings and also said that there should be no controversies over his wedding.
Dileep was earlier married to actress Manju Warrier. They have a daughter named Meenakshi Dileep. They filed for divorce in July 2014, which was granted in January 2015.
Kavya Madhavan’s first marriage also ended in divorce. She had married actor Nishal Chandra in February 2009 and moved to Kuwait to be with her husband. They filed a divorce petition in July 2010, which was granted in May 2011.
Dileep and Kavya Madhavan met each other for the first time on the sets of Darling Darling in 2000. The movie went on to become a hit with the couple’s chemistry striking a chord with the audience. Later, they starred together in nearly 20 movies and are one of the best couples in Malayalam cinema.
Dileep and Kavya Madhavan were last seen together in film Pinneyum, which was released on August 18, 2016.
