Talking about his secret marriage, Gurmeet, in an interview 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.”

Hats off to the super talented Angad Hasija, who turned out to be a real life actor too.

Alekh of Sapna Babul Ka...Bidaai played a mentally challenged role and became a big name in the television arena. That he had got hitched to Parneet, in 2007 was well kept out of the public eye. Angad, you have surely broken many hearts by marrying a girl of your mum’s choice.

Avinesh Rekhi rose to success with his debut serial Chhal – Sheh Aur Maat in 2012 and is now one of the most alluring men for the small screen.

The hot star has also gained recognition for his role of Sultan in Madhubala — Ek Ishq Ek Junoon. Quite sad for his female fans who drooled over him like mad.

Surprisingly, the charming lady, Gautami Kapoor has walked down the aisle much before we have thought of. It’s a well-known fact that she was dating actor Ram Kapoor during Ghar Ek Mandir and the wedding bells rang for them in 2003.

But let’s undo the truth that it’s her second marriage and the actress was earlier married to commercial photographer Madhur Shroff. Well, the flashback neither affected her second marriage nor her success and fame.

#11. Hiten Tejwani

Here’s another well-known personality who was a married man much before he established himself in the industry. He and his co-star Gauri Pradhan were basking in the limelight for their superb acting skills in Kutumb and Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi.

And people thought that it was during the making of the serial that they fell in love and got hitched. Well, the fact which got overlooked was Hiten's first marriage which had happened quite before he made a name for himself. As his first relationship failed, life gave him a second chance with Gauri.

When these celebs' marriage happened behind closed doors, it was definitely surprising and shocking for many. But, today the same celebrities stand tall as examples of confidence and prove that if you are keen, nothing can stop you from being successful and famous. After all, it’s challenging for an actor to be married and making it big in the industry.
