Nazriya to wed Fahad Fazil

Actress Nazriya, who kicked up a controversy over use of a body double for an intimate scene in Naiyyandi some time ago, is set to wed popular Malayalam actor Fahad Fazil, son of veteran film-maker Fazil.

The two are acting together in a Malayalam movie titled L for Love, directed by Anjali Menon.

Nazriya, who was part of Tamil movies like Neram, Raja Rani and Naiyyandi, is currently acting in Thirumanam Engira Nikkah and Vai Moodi Pesalam. She started her career in Malayalam with Palunku alongside Mammooty and followed it up with Mohanlal’s Oru Naal Varum.

Nazriya’s father confirmed the news and said, ‘It is an arranged marriage. Our families are related. The wedding will take place before the end of the year. Nazriya has to complete her ongoing projects.’

Fahad made his debut in Kaiyethum Doorath, directed by his father. After a break of nearly eight years, Fahad returned in the anthology film Kerala Cafe. He was part of films like Chaappa Kurishu, 22 Female Kottayam, Diamond Necklace, Annayum Rasoolum and Amen.
