Urmila Matondkar exchanged wedding vows with a Kashmiri businessman yesterday afternoon
In what came as a pleasant surprise, Urmila Matondkar yesterday announced her secret wedding to a Kashmiri model-businessman through a media statement. The Rangeela girl, 42, tied the knot with Mohsin Akhtar Mir in an intimate ceremony last afternoon.
Says a source, "The couple kept it simple and private. Fashion designer Manish Malhotra, who is close to Urmila, was the only Bollywood personality present at the wedding."

On February 29, actress-producer Preity Zinta, who got married to American financial analyst Gene Goodenough in Los Angeles, had also preferred to keep the nuptials a strictly private affair (Read more).
We hear Mohsin is nearly a decade younger to Urmila and has walked the ramp for Manish Malhotra, who might have played Cupid to the couple. The young man apparently ran away from his house at the age of 21 with his brother due to parental pressure to get married.
He had a bit role in Farhan Akhtar's 'Luck By Chance' and played a male escort in an indie film titled 'It's a Man's World'. Mohsin also featured as one of the lead heroes in an obscure comedy called Mumbai Mast Kalandar, say sources.
Talking about her big day, Urmila says, "We kept it an exclusive wedding with just family and friends at the celebration. Since our families wanted the wedding to be a low-key affair, we mutually decided to keep it private. We seek your blessings on embarking this new journey of our lives."
The actress was last seen on the big screen with Himesh Reshammiya in 'Karzzz' (2008), a remake of 1980 hit 'Karz'. In 2012, she did voiceover for an animated Hindi film, 'Delhi Safari'.
