Bollywood star Salman Khan planned a big, fat Indian wedding with a series of lavish functions when his sister, Arpita Khan, married Aayush Sharma a few months back. However, not all film families prefer such extravagant weddings.

Actor Kunal Kapoor, for instance, married Naina Bachchan, his girlfriend of two years, in an intimate setting in Seychelles on February 9. Only their close friends and family attended the ceremony. Here’s a look at some other couples who chose to have low-key weddings.

Rani Mukerji and Aditya Chopra: Both of them remained tight-lipped about their relationship throughout their courting period. They got married in an extremely intimate ceremony in Italy on April 21, 2014. After tying the knot, they released a statement announcing their marriage.

John Abraham and Priya Runchal: John started dating Priya after he broke up with actor Bipasha Basu. He got married, away from the limelight on January 2, 2014, when they were on holiday in the USA.

Kunal Kapoor and Naina Bachchan: The couple has been together for over two years now. They were introduced to each other by Naina’s cousin, Shweta Bachchan Nanda, and have never hidden their relationship. They were spotted together at many socials dos in the city before they got married.

Shreya Ghoshal and Shiladitya Mukhopadhyaya: On February 5 this year, singer Shreya Ghoshal got married to her long-time beau Shiladitya in a simple function. They have known each other since they were kids, but they opened up about their relationship about four years ago.

Soha Ali Khan and Kunal Kemmu: The Bollywood actors, who met on the sets of the film, 99 (2009), got married at Soha’s Khar residence on January 25 this year.
