While Omi Vaidya, Chatur Ramalingam of 3 Idiots fetched two honours for being the Best Newcomer and Best Comedian at the Screen Awards recently, his studious wife Minal is being awarded a doctorate in public health.
Omi Vaidya is looking forward to a bright career in Bollywood. However, before that he plans to fly back home to the US to be with his wife.
"I have to be in Los Angeles by January 23 or my wife will kill me!" he told a tabloid. "She is getting her Ph D...there is no way I can miss the occasion," he added.
The actor got married last August in the midst of shooting for 3 Idiots. "I had scheduled the marriage thinking that the shoot would be over but then there were still some shots to be canned in Ladakh, Just before that. Raju told me to keep the extra weight I had gained for the film as well as that slightly bald look. So for my wedding I ended up looking like Chatur too," he told the tabloid.
