Gurmeet Choudhary will be next seen in the romantic comedy, Laali Ki Shaadi Me Laaddoo Deewana with Akshara Haasan and Vivaan Shah. As the title suggests, a relatively more complicated wedding is the crux of the plot. Now, call it coincidence or anything you prefer, but a few days ago, pictures from Gurmeet’s ‘secret’ wedding with Debina Bonnerjee went viral on the internet. As popularly known – the couple got hitched in 2011. But that is not the complete truth. No one knew that Gurmeet and Debina had actually tied the knot back in the year 2006. Not even their family members were aware of this fact. “We told our families only a year and a half ago. When we made a name for ourselves,” the actor told us. In an EXCLUSIVE interaction, Gurmeet gave us all the deets of this full on Saathiya style wedding. Read on…
Well aware of his responsibility towards his fans, Gurmeet opened up about the personal moment. He said, “A lot of people think that I and Debina met while filming for Ramayan, and then we got married in 2011. Very few know that when we were nothing, we weren’t actors, we were only looking for work – we were just 19 and 20 years old, we eloped and got married, in 2006. We did not tell our parents. Our friends helped us to get married at a temple in Goregaon.” It rarely happens that someone with an extremely huge fan following, is so polite. Gurmeet is one of the rare and shining examples of such actors from the B-Town. He might still not have a strong filmography to boast of, but his stint on TV is something that has earned him much acclaim!
While giggling in between sentences, probably reminiscing the crazy time when he and Debina pulled this off, Gurmeet added,”You can see in the pictures that we both are very young. My best friend asked to make a serious face for the camera, or else I would look too young.” Well, he does look a little too young. But also a little angry? “Because I made a face too serious, I am looking like I am angry,” he revealed.
“We told our families only a year and a half ago, when we made a name for ourselves, people started recognizing us, and we had money, car and a house – then we got married again in 2011. But in that marriage we did not perform all the rituals. I did not come riding a horse or anything. On the same day, as that in 2006, we opted for a court marriage in 2011,” he said. Further he added that their families had no reaction upon learning about their 2006 wedding, as the two were well-settled with their careers. “I believe they must have felt that we should have told them back in 2006 only so that they could also have been a part of our marriage rituals,” he said.

With their passionate chemistry Gurmeet and Debina were able to secure the second position in Nach Baliye 6. Their chemistry is based on trust and belief in each other’s talent. This trust is the same thing that led a 19-year old Debina to fearlessly tie the knot with the love of her life. “Every parent wants that their daughter should marry a guy who is earning good, but when I was getting married I had nothing. I did not have a house, a car, or any money. All I had was Debina and her support. All I had was Debina’s trust in me that I will become someone one day. Such trust and belief is not shown by many,” he summed up.
Well, that is the sweetest love story we have heard in the longest time. If Laali Ki Shaadi Mein Laaddoo Deewana is half as sweet as this, it’s a sure shot blockbuster.
