New Delhi | Bollywood star Akshay Kumar, who attended Asin Thottumkal and Rahul Sharma’s wedding here, says the marriage was a simple but lovely affair. Asin, 30, and Rahul, 39, married in a private ceremony here last evening. Akshay is also glad that he was instrumental in the actress and Micromax founder’s meeting and wished them a long and happy married life. It was a nice affair. Everything went off very well. Asin and Rahul are very private people. Everybody has respected their privacy. It was a very simple affair and today they are very happy and I am very happy that I played the Cupid. I hope that they live like this forever, Akshay told.

The actor was one of the early birds to reach the venue and be a part of the wedding. The duo tied the knot first in a Christian wedding and then settled down for a North Indian ceremony in the evening. Asked whose side he represented at the wedding, the actor, one of the first invitees, said, I was from both the sides. Akshay, 48, is currently in Delhi to promote his upcoming film Airlift, which releases this Friday, along with co-star Nimrat Kaur and director Raja Krishna Menon. It’s just a coincidence that I was in Delhi during her wedding. If I would have been in Mumbai, I would have flown to attend the wedding, said Akshay about his Khiladi 786 co-star.
