According to their posts, the couple got married on Alya's birthday which happens to be May 29 and concealed the news due to 'some issues'. While many of their fans congratulated them, some questioned the legitimacy of the announcement.

However, Alya and Sanjeev clarified the doubts of whether or not they are married by holding a marriage reception on Sept 17. Here's a glimpse of the reception:

Our best wishes for the couple, but we wonder why the announcement came in late and the reception was very sudden. Do you have any idea?
