Asin Thottumkal, who started her acting career down South, tied the knot today at a church in Delhi. The Ghajini actress married Rahul Sharma, the co-founder of Micromax Informatics Limited and its CEO.
The wedding took place in a grand yet personalized manner as only 50 important guests were invited. Surprisingly, the marriage seems to have taken place without any prominent Kollywood celebrities.

This is the invitation that was sent out to 200 odd people ahead of the actress' wedding.
The First Invitation
This is the first invitation that was sent to Akshay Kumar. "Happy to receive the 1st wedding card of 2 of my close friends, Rahul & Asin. Wishing you both happiness always", Akshay wrote on his Twitter page.
This is the venue where Asin tied the knot with Rahul Sharma earlier in the day. The private reception will happen on Saturday as mentioned earlier.
The All Important Dias
The Hindu wedding will witness the arrival of many influential people from across India. Expect some powerful business magnates to attend the ceremony.
And They Lived Happily Ever After.....
Asin's wedding has been a story straight out of a fairy tale. The talented actress will be hoping and praying for a similar tale post her marriage as well.
Did Asin just ignore her friends from Tamil film industry? Well, ironically Akshay Kumar, who will soon be making his Tamil debut through Rajinikanth's 2.0 (Enthiran 2), was honoured with the first invitation and rightly so.
As it turns out, apart from introducing Asin to her then future husband, Akshay was also instrumental in kindling the romance between Asin and Rahul.
"Don't laugh, but we were playing hide and seek, and I made the two of them hide together in one cupboard. That is how it started and it is so nice that they are getting married now." Akshay has said.
As reported earlier, Asin will also have a marriage that follows the Hindu customs. While only 50 were invited to the wedding that took place at the church, 200 guests are expected to attend the Hindu based ceremony.
Though it is not known if any actor or actress from the South Indian film industry had been invited to this particular wedding, it will be interesting to see if any prominent Tamil personality, other than Prabhu Deva, who is more into Hindi films of late, makes it to the gathering.
The newly married couple will also throw a lavish party on 23rd January (Saturday) at a farmhouse, owned by Rahul Sharma, according to a report.
Asin, who made her debut through a Malayalam flick titled Narendran Makan Jayakanthan Vaka in the year 2001, went on to act in Telugu and Tamil films.
She was considered as the reigning queen of Tamil film industry for a very long time, before making her Hindi debut in Aamir Khan's Ghajini, the remake of a superhit Tamil flick of the same name, starring Suriya.
