Dil Chahta Hai actress Sonali Kulkarni got married to Nachiket Pantvaidya in a quiet ceremony held in Pune on Monday, says a media report.

Nachiket, who is the MD of Fox Television Studios, had been dating Sonali for some time, but the couple had been so secretive about their relationship and the subsequent wedding that it has taken even their close friends by surprise.  

Sonali's brother Sandesh, a well known Marathi director, confirms, “It was a simple and traditional Maharashtrian wedding which took place at our Pune house on Monday morning. It was a very private affair with only the immediate families present.”  

Sandesh reveals that though it is a love marriage, his family is very happy with Sonali's choice. “They knew each other for a while and took the permission of their respective families before finalising the wedding.”  

A National Award (Chaitra) winning actress with more than 50 films under her belt, Sonali's marriage is not expected to derail her career. “Sonali will definitely continue acting,” says her brother.  

After repeated calls and messages, Sonali reverted, “Yes it's true and I am very happy. Nachiket is a wonderful man.”

Sonali was briefly married to a Marathi play director Chandrakant Kulkarni and was subsequently seeing theatre actor Makarand Deshpande. This is also Nachiket's second marriage.
