She added, “Request people to stop making assumptions about my assignments and work as I’m not doing that at this stage. Had made this announcement before the wedding itself.”

Asin and Micromax co-founder Rahul tied the knot in a twin wedding ceremony on January 19. A Christian ceremony in the morning was followed by Hindu pheras in the evening.

Bollywood star Akshay Kumar introduced Asin to Rahul . Talking about it, Akshay had said right before the wedding, “It was during Housefull 2 and we were in Delhi. Don’t laugh, but we were & playing hide and seek, and I made the two of them hide together in one cupboard. That is how it started and it is so nice that they are getting married now.”
