Uthara Unni: We decided to postpone the wedding until things returned to normal.

Dancer and actress Uthara Unni She met businessman Nithesh S Nair, a Kozhikode native established in Mangalore in December. A month later, they had a charming engagement and were ready to get married in April. But, the running of the bulls played spoilsport with the wedding of their dreams.

Uthara says: “We had originally planned to hold a simple thaalikettu ceremony in April, but with the temples also closed and the situation worsening worldwide, we decided to bring the wedding to a later date. I suppose it may take another two months for things to return to normal, and therefore the wedding could happen after August, in the month of Chingam.

So how did you meet your fiancé? It is a well-arranged marriage, through a marriage site, says Uthara, who confesses that he initially felt that everything about his wedding was happening so quickly. However, when the shutdown occurred, I also realized that I was ready to get married. I guess we are using blocking time to understand and bond better, says the actress from Edavapathy.

Sitting at home, the dancer is finding time to stay creative and choreograph new routines. When we are busy acting and traveling, we don't have time for this, so now is the best time to do it, says Uthara, who would settle in Bangalore after the wedding. Will you miss being in Kerala? Well, I will continue to come to Kerala for my classes and performances at least twice a month, so I think it should be fine, he concludes.
