Contrary to popular belief, celebrities do not always choose to marry within the industry. There could be some reasons for this. Perhaps, when they come home after a particularly tiring day at work, they do not need another reminder of work, shoots and schedules. The idea of coming back home to someone who is completely away from the film and TV industry might just seem like a blessing for some of them!

A lot of them who are married have chosen their own life partners, and most of them are outside the industry. Here’s a list of famous TV celebrities who tied the knot with people outside the industry. Take a look.
The much-loved TV character from Is Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon, which was an extremely popular TV show, is married to his first girlfriend Pashmeen Manchanda. Theirs was a high school romance.

The actress who played Muskan in the popular show Dill Mill Gayye and who eventually gained fame through the TV show Madhubala, is also married to someone outside the industry. Her beau, Neeraj Khemka, is a businessman who was earlier setteled abroad, but now lives in Mumbai. He and Drashti dated for 5 to 6 years, before deciding that they wanted to get married. Theirs was an inter-caste marriage, Marwari-Gujarati to be precise; and there were a few problems leading up to the wedding. However, they successfully got hitched in 2015.

Television’s most popular face is probably that of Disha Vakani, a.k.a., Dayaben from Tarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashma. She got married to a chartered accountant from Mumbai, Mayur Pandya. The wedding took place in 2015, in Sun n Sand Hotel, Juhu.
