The much talked-about and long-awaited marriage of Malayalam film industry’s Laila-Majnu -- Kavya Madhavan and Dileep took place on Friday.

Madhavan and Dileep tied the knot in the presence of close friends and relatives at a hotel here.

This was a second marriage for both the stars, with their first one ending in divorce.

Dileep had divorced Manju Warrier -- a popular actor who withdrew from films after marrying Dileep in 1998.

While Madhavan was married in 2009 to a computer engineer, which ended in one year.

Kept as a highly guarded secret, the media and others got a surprise, when the news trickled on Friday morning about the ‘star wedding’.

“I did not know about this, till a few hours back. My husband (producer Suresh) told me that he has to visit a temple. Maybe he knew. Anyway this is good news for all of us,” said the yesteryear actor, Maneka.

“Only those very close to the couple are there today and this has happened with the support of both the families,” said Ranjith, a producer and husband of actor Chippi at the marriage venue.

“Finally there is an end to unnecessary speculations and Dileep has the complete support of his daughter - Meenakshi,” said veteran director Kamal.
