Arav enters wedlock with actress,  Oviya skips event

Arav Nafeez married Joshua Imai Pol Kaakha actress Raahei at a private ceremony on Sunday in Chennai. The ceremony was attended only by his close friends and family, following the Covid-19 protocol.

Their wedding was organised with necessary safety precautions adhering to government rules and regulations. The ceremony was attended by Bigg Boss Season 1 contestants – Snehan, Gayatri Raghuram, Bindhu Madhavi, Harathi, Harish Kalyan and Suja Varunee. Renowned directors like KS Ravikumar, Charan, Vijay and Ranjith Jeyakodi also graced the occasion.

However, Oviya, who was a ‘close friend’ of Arav, did not attend the event. It is said that Arav and Raahei knew each other for almost a year now and the two decided get married post their parents approval.

Arav’s friend and actress Bindhu Madhavi took to Instagram to share a couple of pictures clicked at the wedding ceremony. Bindhu Madhavi wrote,”It’s my friend’s wedding. Mera dosth ka shaadi hai…. @actorarav #raahei @itssujavarunee @gayathriraguramm @actress_harathi @iamharishkalyan #snehan.”

Photographs from the event show the couple dressed in traditional attire. While Raahei wore a blush coloured lehenga for the day event, Arav wore an ivory coloured sherwani. Raahei and Arav switched to a maroon lehenga and black sherwani respectively for the reception.

While Raahei awaits the release of Joshua Imai Pol Kaakha directed by Gautham Menon and co-starring Varun of Puppy fame, Arav has the long-delayed Raja Bheema directed by Naresh Sampath co-starring Aashima Narwal and Yogi Babu with Oviya and Yaashikaa Aannand making cameo appearances.

Oviya tweeted recently, “Those we love never go away!they walk beside us Unseen,unheard but always near,so loved, so missed but always so very dear.”
