Malayali actor Bhavana, who got engaged to Kannada actor-producer Naveen on Thursday, wants a simple wedding, her mother Pushpa has revealed.
The wedding is likely to take place at the end of 2017 with the venue and other details still to be decided. “Both parties want a simple wedding. It might not be easy for Naveen’s entire family to come over here so they might be attending the reception. Also, she has films to complete before planning the wedding,” said Pushpa.
Bhavana and Naveen got engaged on Thursday at a private ceremony in Bhavana’s hometown Thrissur.
“The ceremony was supposed to be held on March 3 but the dates got pushed owing to deaths in the family. It’s not long since Naveen lost his mother and Bhavana her father.
“We meant to hold a simple ring exchange before the photos of the deceased, but Naveen’s family, who are Telugus settled in Bangalore, wanted the rituals to be done according to their customs. So, garlands were exchanged which made some people think that it was her wedding,” Pushpa was quoted as saying by Times of India.
She also added that the ceremony was meant to be a low-key affair but the photos got leaked somehow. “Only our close family was present. Nine people had come from Naveen’s family. Manju Warrier and Samyuktha Varma came only after knowing about it. But they come here often even otherwise.”
Bhavana, who made her debut in 2002 in Nammal, is currently shooting for Prithviraj’s Adam. Her films — Honey Bee 2 and Adventures of Omanakuttan — are ready for release.
The couple first met in 2012, on the sets of Kannada film Romeo.
