We remember her as Mahi from Ranbir Kapoor starrer film, Bachna Ae Haseeno, but even with hit movies like Yahaan, Honeymoon Travels Pvt. Ltd., Shaurya, Kidnap etc. in her kitty, Minissha Lamba managed to keep her private life away from the limelight. And when the world was busy fascinating with Shahid Kapoor's wedding in 2015, Minissha had surprised everyone with her secret intimate marriage.
On July 7, 2015, Minissha Lamba had tied the knot with Pooja Bedi's cousin, Ryan Tham in an intimate wedding, which was kept under the wraps from media. However, a few years into marital bliss, Minissha and Ryan parted ways amicably and in August 2020, she had confirmed their legal separation.
Minissha Lamba never spoke in detail about the issues in her married life that led to divorce. Now in an interview with Navbharat Times, Minissha said, "In the West, the concept of self-love is very strong. Self-love does not mean being selfish. Divorce is not easy but when the relationship becomes toxic then it is okay to leave. I would also like to say that your marriage or relationship can be an important part of your life but it cannot be your whole life. Unfortunately, women are identified by their relationship and marital status but now the times are changing."
It was in 2013 when Minissha Lamba had met Ryan Tham at his nightclub, Trilogy in Mumbai and two years later, the couple had decided to exchange wedding vows in an intimate ceremony. Three years into married life, the reports were rife in 2018 that Minissha and Ryan were facing troubles in their marriage. After maintaining silence for 2 years, Minissha had finally confirmed her separation from Ryan in 2020.
When Minissha Lamba and Ryan Tham had tied the knot, his cousin, Pooja Bedi welcomed her bhabhi into the family. Making Minissha and Ryan's relationship and wedding official, Pooja had tweeted on July 6, 2015, "Welcome to the family @Minissha_Lamba!!!! Hope u and My brother Ryan have a crazy fun happy loving amazing life ahead!"
Pooja Bedi had also posted a picture with her daughter, Alaya Furniturewalla as they had headed to the wedding lunch of Minissha Lamba and Ryan Tham. Pooja had captioned the picture as "Off with My daughter @AaliaEff and son omar to ryan & @Minissha_Lamba's wedding lunch." For the wedding lunch, Pooja and Alaya had twinned in shades of pink, posing for a selfie in the traditional outfits.
In a throwback interview with The Indian Express, Minissha Lamba had revealed that she met Ryan Tham at his nightclub and he ignored her a couple of times. It was a few weeks later that Minissha and Ryan talked at their friend's place. While Minissha was unsure if it was love at first sight but for her, it was 'definitely liking at first sight'. Minissha and Ryan dated for a few months and she knew, he was the one for her and there were no two ways about it!
We wish Minissha and Ryan, happiness and success in their future endeavours!
