We woke up to the news of Gaurav Chopra getting married to Hitisha Cheranda yesterday. It definitely needed a bit of getting used to. And then pictures from their wedding started trickling in making us believe that it was for real. Of course, we dug up everything about the girl who took away the heart of one of the most good looking men from the TV world. But it did make us wonder as to why did Gaurav keep it a secret. Now we have the answer. The actor revealed that he did so to protect her from all the media glare. (Also read: All you need to know about Gaurav Chopra and Hitisha Cheranda's secret wedding)
Talking to Hindustan Times, Gaurav says, "She (Hitisha) is a very gracious person and is handling all this with a lot of grace. I didn’t know this would get leaked. This is new for her and this is what I was protecting her from. The reason why I decided to keep her away was not because I was hiding her but because I was protecting her, and the situation as well." When asked about his fans being pretty shocked to hear about his wedding, his reaction was funny. " Don’t even start on that. People are making me feel bad, like I have betrayed them. There are people who are saying that, ‘I am not eating for two days,’ there are people who are saying that they are crying when they see the pictures. I would tell them that I am the same person as before," quips Gaurav.
Gaurav also admits that he never thought he will be a part of a traditional wedding. "I never imagined it to be so traditional, I imagined it to be more like a destination wedding. In fact, that was always the plan but my mother has been unwell and the whole of last year went by in taking care of her. This was her wish, this is what she wanted and I just wanted to make her happy. So, I said ‘why not,’" he informed. Well, that's one thing everyone will agree on.
