Married to: Mohsin Akhtar Mir
On: 3rd March 2016
‘Rangeela’ actress Urmila Matondkar, tied the knot with model-businessman Mohsin Akhtar Mir from Kashmir. They met at designer friend Manish Malhotra’s niece Rridhi’s wedding in December 2014 and fell in love. Mohsin hails from Kashmir and has done several modelling assignments including walking the ramp for Manish Malhotra and now runs a Kashmiri embroidery business.
The secret Hindu shaadi took place at Urmila’s residence in Bandra at her terrace where a mandap was set up with festive lights and was managed by Urmila’s sister Mamta. Besides her family, the only bollywood personality present was fashion designer Manish Malhotra who is a dear friend of both. Urmila wore a red and pink bespoke lehenga from Manish Malhotra’s ‘Regal Threads Benaras’ collection which is his ode to the ‘Make in India’ movement. She completed her look with a pretty mathapatti, nathani and heavy gold jewellery along with green bangles as per Maharashtrian wedding rituals.
Urmila also hosted a quiet post-wedding party for their family and close friends at her residence. She wore a white anarkali with gold embellishments while Mohsin looked dapper in a well tailored suit. Earlier in the week, she wore a beautiful turquoise ensemble for her mehndi that looks like another of Manish Malhotra’s creations.
