Apparently, she had missed turning up the first time around after being summoned by the federal agency. And it remains to be seen if she will make the date in July. If you’re not in the know, Gautam recently tied the knot with filmmaker Aditya Dhar in a low-key and hush hush ceremony.
However, the couple had shared pictures with a caption that read, “With the blessings of our family, we have tied the knot in an intimate wedding ceremony today. Being very private people, we celebrated this joyous occasion with our immediate family. As we embark on the journey of love and friendship, we seek all your blessings and good wishes.
Meanwhile, on the movie front, the actress will next be seen in Bhoot Police alongside Arjun Kapoor, Saif Ali Khan and Jacqueline Fernandez. The movie is being directed by Director Pavan Kirpalani and is all set to hit the theatres in 2021. She will also be seen in Dasvi, written by Ritesh Shah and directed by newcomer Tushar Jalota which also features Abhishek Bachchan, and Nimrat Kaur.
