Actress Rima Kallingal of Yuvan Yuvathi fame tied the knot with Mollywood director Ashiq Abu, on the eve of Deepavali at the Registrar Office in Kakkanad in Kerala.
Her marriage was a simple affair and the actress, who is popular in Mollywood and Kollywood, had a bold message too.
"Today if my grandmother was alive she would have been ecstatic to see me as a bride but at the same time heart broken to see me not decked up in gold from head to toe!!" she wrote on her social networking page.
"From a very young age I knew I didn't want to wear so much gold for my marriage. But as I grew up the feeling grew stronger on many other levels and today when I am getting married, I want to use this beautiful life I have and this amazing platform that cinema has given me to send across my strong vote of protest against the dowry system that we still shamelessly silently follow and dedicate my decision to the millions of parents who have spend their life time earnings on their children's weddings!" she wrote.
