Malayalam film actress Rima Kallingal today tied the knot with director Aashiq Abu at the Sub-Registrar's office near here.

The duo reached the Sub Registrar's office around noon and registered their marriage in the presence of their close relatives and friends.

After signing the register, the two exchanged garlands and wedding vows. CPI(M) MP, P Rajeeve, accompanied them to the office.

A huge crowd had gathered since morning to catch a glimpse of the couple, who later came out and thanked everyone for blessing them.

Rima told reporters that she would continue to act in films post marriage. "I do not mix my personal and professional life. I will continue to act," she said.

The two had earlier decided not to have a lavish wedding and instead donate the wedding expense for a noble cause.

Yesterday, they donated Rs 10 lakh towards the welfare of poor cancer patients at the general hospital here and also gave Rs 25,000 to meet a day's expense of the dietary kitchen at the hospital.

Rima had made her acting debut in Shyamaprasad's 'Ritu'. She received rave reviews for her role in '22 Female Kottayam', which won her the state award for best actress in February this year. The film was directed by Aashiq Abu.
