TV celebs maybe public figures, but they have a lot of secrets, especially about their marital status. Some announce their engagement, but not their wedding date; some shock everyone with their wedding news and some tell about their true marital status after years.
Whatever it may be, we know that not every celeb is comfortable about revealing their personal lives. Scroll down and take a look at some of the TV celebs who kept their wedding under wraps.
Rajat Tokas, the Akbar of the small screen, married his girlfriend, Shrishti Nayyar in a secret ceremony on January 30, 2015. And for a while, no one could believe it. In fact, it came as a shock because no one knew that Rajat was even planning to get married. The wedding was a royal affair and took place at the Udaipur Palace.
Just like Akbar, this Jodha was also very secretive about her marriage. Paridhi married Ahmedabad-based, Tanmai Saksena, in 2011 and was not open about her wedding because her director and producer asked her to remain quiet about it. After enjoying the marital life for 6 years, they became proud parents to a baby girl in 2017.
Popular television actors, Jay Bhanushali and Mahhi Vij were never afraid to share the fact that they are together. Whenever the question of the wedding came up, they always said that they have work commitments. However, when Mahi attended the wedding of their friend, her mangalsutra gave her marital status away. They later accepted that they got married on November 11, 2011.
Television’s popular comic star, Krushna Abhishek and sultry actress, Kashmera Shah were in a live-in relationship for good nine years. However, it was only in July 2013, that the couple decided to get hitched while on vacation in Las Vegas. Krushna popped the question to Kashmera and they got married in a church next morning. But, the couple hid their marriage from everyone and it was only in 2015 that they revealed their marital status. They are now proud parents to twin sons via surrogacy.
Sasural Genda Phool fame, Jay Soni got married on February 18, 2014, to Pooja Shah. There was no talk about the marriage, or rumour encircling the affair. It was later revealed that it was an arranged marriage as Jay comes from a very conservative family. Jay expressed that he is very happy to have finally settled down in holy matrimony.
TV actress, Sara Khan of Sapna Babul Ka…Bidaai and actor, Ali Merchant had a nikah on the sets of Bigg Boss and the whole world saw it. But, what most of us had no idea about is that they were married even before that. They got married in the presence of their families and close friends in 2009. However, the couple got separated later. In fact, Ali is now married to an investment banker, Anam.
TV actor, Angad had an arranged marriage with Parneet (Pari), and she is his mother's choice. Sounds normal, right? What follows next will blow your mind. Before we met Angad as Alekh in Sapna Babul Ka…Bidaai, he was already married. The actor got married on September 15, 2007, while he entered the show much later in February 2008. And he hid this fact from everyone, including the producer and director of the show, because he did not want this fact to affect his fan following. They welcomed their daughter, Vaishnavi and Angad shares a special bond with her.
Nobody had any idea that Vansh from Colors' popular TV show, Uttaran was already married. He kept his marriage to his childhood girlfriend, Neha under tight wraps.

Aditya Redij and Natasha Sharma were the protagonists of the show, Na Aana Iss Des Laado, and were very open about their relationship.

Shefali Sharma aka Bani married the creative supervisor, Varun Sethi, of her show, Bani- Ishq da Kalma on September 3, 2014. It was a very secret affair as Shefali is a very private person, and did not want any kind of interference in the wedding. Also, her new show was about to go on air, so she was a little apprehensive about revealing her marital status, as married actresses are not accepted well in the industry, especially if they are just beginning their careers.
