PALAKKAD: Actor Prithviraj tied nuptial knot with Mumbai-based BBC journalist Supriya Menon at the Kandath heritage villa at Thenkurissy here on Monday.
The marriage ceremony was a private affair, keeping the media and the public away from the function. Around 60 invitees, including Prithviraj’s mother Mallika Sukumaran, brother Indrajith, his wife Poornima and their children, attended the marriage.
Supriya Menon, who arrived for the marriage along with her father Vijay K Menon and mother Padma, friends and relatives, is a native of Shantinagar in Palakkad. Heavy security was arranged at the resort in connection with the marriage.
Supriya Menon wore a gold colour cream saree while Prithviraj appeared in mundu and kurtha.
Though the local photographers and television channels were not allowed inside the resort, over a dozen private photographers covered the function.
It is learnt that even the mobile phones of over two dozen staff members of the resort were confiscated and switched off to keep the whole affair private. After the marriage Prithviraj and Supriya Menon went to Ernakulam, without speaking to the journalists waiting outside the gate.
However, when they complained that they were not let in to the resort, Mallika Sukumaran said, “We did not invite you to the marriage. We have arranged a reception at the same resort on April 30 and on that day all are welcome.”
A lavish reception is also planned at the Le Meridien in Ernakulam on May 1.
