Bollywood diva Vidya Balan finally got married to beau Siddharth Roy Kapur in a hush-hush ceremony in Chembur early morning today. It was a temple wedding for the actress and most likely to have followed authentic Tamil traditions, confirms Mid-Day.
Vidya Balan was dressed like a traditional Tamil bride. The earthy beauty wore a nine-yard Kanjivaram saree and we are guessing it's by her favourite designer Sabyasachi.
Vidya also wore traditional South Indian gold jewellery along with some of her mother Saraswati’s ancestral baubles, reports Mid-Day.
