Rima Kallingal (Actor) Weds Aashiq Abu (Young Director)

Malayalam film actress Rima Kallingal today tied the knot with director Aashiq Abu at the Sub-Registrar's office near Kochi.

The duo reached the Sub Registrar's office around noon and registered their marriage in the presence of their close relatives and friends.

After signing the register, the two exchanged garlands and wedding vows. CPI(M) MP, P Rajeev, accompanied them to the office.

A huge crowd had gathered since morning to catch a glimpse of the couple, who later came out and thanked everyone for blessing them.

Rima told reporters that she would continue to act in films post marriage. "I do not mix my personal and professional life. I will continue to act," she said.

The two had earlier decided not to have a lavish wedding and instead donate the wedding expense for a noble cause. Yesterday, they donated Rs 10 lakh towards the welfare of poor cancer patients at the general hospital here and also gave Rs 25,000 to meet a day's expense of the dietary kitchen at the hospital.

Rima had made her acting debut in Shyamaprasad's 'Ritu'.

She received rave reviews for her role in '22 Female Kottayam', which won her the state award for best actress in February this year. The film was directed by Aashiq Abu.

Abu said, "Although there is a custom of inviting colleagues, family and friends for the marriage, we are avoiding it. On behalf of all of you, we are donating the marriage expenses for the treatment of the cancer patients. This is a small step which may give relief for ordinary patients."



It was a union that hit the headlines more for its simplicity than for the glamour quotient. Actress Rima Kallingal and director Aashiq Abu exchanged nuptial vows in Kochi on Friday in the presence of their close friends and family members. The couple, who opted for a low-key wedding, registered their marriage at the Thrikkakara registrar office.


Soon after Aashiq Abu and Rima Kallingal announced their marriage date, they were loaded with best wishes and prayers. The wedding will be held on the day of Kerala Piravi, November 1, at Kakkanad Register Office. The superstar in the industry Mohanlal also wished the couple. Aashiq Abu, on his official Facebook page, posted saying, "Thanks a lot for all your warm wishes.

This one is so special for mw today. So sharing. Bcoz this is from a legendary ARTIST of our times, Padmasree MOHANLAL..!!! Thank you laletta. Means a lot to us. We are so happy :)" Mohanlal Wishes Aashiq And Rima

Mohanlal wrote - Read the News in today's news paper. Wish you good luck and a peaceful life. Our prayers and wishes always. Have a great day ({}) Aashiq Abu and Rima Kallingal have set an example before all by preferring a very low key wedding.

They will be having a register marriage and no reception after the wedding. Instead, Rima and Aashiq plan to donate the reception amount to the patients at the Ernakulam Government hospital, who are suffering from cancer. The wedding will be attended only by their parents and a very few close friends and relatives.
