Giving raise to many an eyebrow, Regina Cassandra on Wednesday posted on Instagram that she was getting hitched. “Guys need ur blessings on this auspicious day. sorry it had to be like this.. I wish I could tell u who the guy is.. but that shall be revealed soon,” she said.
The actress added: “I can’t wait for U guys to see him!!! didn’t think I’d be this ecstatic to get hitched thgh.” However, she deleted the post soon.
Meanwhile, it is being claimed that it is part of the promotion of her upcoming Tamil flick Gemini Ganesanum Suruli Rajanum.
Regina started anchoring when she was nine for Splash, a kids’ channel and then moved on to work in commercials. Aged 16, she shot for her first film, Kanda Naal Mudhal directed by V. Priya, which also starred Prasanna, Laila and Karthik Kumar.
In the film, Regina portrayed Latha, the 21-year-old pregnant sister of Laila’s character, and has since mentioned that people still find it hard to believe it was her in that role, as she was very young and wore no make-up.
She then appeared alongside fellow newcomer Yogi in Azhagiya Asura, which won good reviews. She then went on to graduate in psychology from Women’s Christian College, Chennai and took another year off before taking a final call on joining movies.
During her break she also acted in several short films, most notably Balaji Mohan’s Kadhalil Sodhappuvadhu Yeppadi alongside Adith Arun, which was later made into a feature film in 2012 under the same name.
