Popular actor Ankur Rathee of Thappad fame and his longtime girlfriend Anuja Joshi got married on Wednesday, June 15. The couple got engaged back in 2020 and have been dating each other for around 10 years. As per reports, the couple married in the English countryside around the British Isles. The wedding was attended by their close friends and family. There were around 200 guests at the wedding. A series of pictures and videos from their wedding were shared online. 

Their fairytale wedding took place at Hawkstone Hall, an early 18th-century country mansion near Hodnet, Shropshire, in the West Midlands region of England.  Ankur had apparently made his way down the venue in a horse drawn carriage. During a 2020 media interaction, when asked about their relationship with each other, Anuja revealed, "We met as co-stars on a short film in New York City. It was a tribute to 100 years of Hindi Cinema and was directed by Siddhi Sundar (NYU) and Raashi Desai (SVA). We spent the majority of the shoot schedule together, and loved every minute of getting to know each other, doing what we both are so passionate about. At the time we were young college students who had aspirations of working in the entertainment industry as full-time professional actors. One baby step in front of the other, followed by some gigantic leaps and hurdles, and here we are.”

Ankur has worked in shows like Sony's Undekhi, Voot's Brochara, Netflix's Eternally Confused And Eager For Love, and Amazon Prime shows Inside Edge Season 3 and Made in Heaven. He has also appeared in films like Thappad, The Tashkent Files, and Taish. Anuja is the daughter of actor Master Alankar and niece of actor Pallavi Joshi. She has appeared in shows such as MX Player's Hello Mini and The Resident on Fox.
