In the era of social media, many television celebrities ensure to share every minute detail of their wedding, including pre-wedding shoots and functions. But there are a few who choose to keep their marital status under wraps for some or the other reason.
Recently, television actress Narayani Shastri shocked her fans when she revealed that she was married to her long-term boyfriend Steven Graver (Tony), a British national, for the past one-and-half years.

"Tony is media-shy. Honestly, both of us didn't want to get married. We actually got married because one day we were wondering 'Why don't we want to tie the knot, given that the two of us want to be together always?' It was rather strange," Narayani told Mumbai Mirror.
"This thought came to us one day and we called the registrar the next day. We did not want to blow it out of proportion. Tony and I needed some time to get comfortable with the idea of being married and now, we are comfortable with the thought," she added.
