Govinda’s second marriage to his wife of 25 years Sunita Ahuja might be a surprising but a sweet event. The two, who celebrated their 25th anniversary on January 14th, did so by having a private wedding ceremony in London. This was an event planned in advance and was attended by close friends and family but their kids Yashvardhan and Narmadaa didn’t attend the event as Sunita laughs and says “Kids are not supposed to see their parents getting married.”
“It was better than the first time. Twenty five years ago, Govinda was at the peak of his career. Those days, it was believed that marital status affects the fan following of a star and hence, we had kept out marriage a secret for the longest time. I remember we only announced the wedding after our daughter Narmmadaa was born. This time around, I was more excited as it wasn’t chup chup ke. It was his idea. His close friend Faisal made all the arrangements and his friends insisted that we do it in London. Havan, pheras, sindoor, mangalsutra…everything happened as per the rituals,” she adds.
When asked if they exchanged any gifts, she smiles and says “His gift to me was the beautiful mangalsutra and I have already gifted him two anmol ratans — our children.”
