Much to the disappointment of female fans of the heartthrob Prithviraj Sukumaran, the actor has 'secretly' married a very smart and intellectual TV news reporter, Supriya Menon on April 25th 2011. The marriage took place in the resort of the Kandoth taravadu (Thenkurissi Heritage villa) in Palakkad district of Kerala as a very low-profile ceremony in the presence of his mother Mallika Sukumaran, brother and actor Indrajith, close family and friends. As a matter of fact, only about 50 people were invited for the wedding as Prithviraj wanted to keep his marriage a private affair. The media was not allowed to enter the marriage hall. Nevertheless, the media and Prithviraj's fans can rejoice as the wedded couple have arranged for a lavish wedding reception at Le Meridian hotel, Kochi on May 1st.
Supriya Menon is a Mumbai-based well known media personality who is currently working as a reporter with BBC World, Mumbai. She is basically from Palakkad in Kerala but was raised in Mumbai. The sharp reporter was born to Padmini Vijaykumar and Vijaykumar Menon in 1985. Supriya does not have any siblings and is the only daughter to her parents. She did her schooling in Mumbai and later she finished her post graduation in journalism from a reputed university in London. Supriya is a very intellectual lady and Prithviraj was attracted towards this quality that she possesses. The couple dated for a year before marriage although Prithviraj always denied questions from the media of having affairs with a girl. They met each other after Prithviraj's film Raavan was released following which he was interviewed by Supriya and the two gradually fell deeply in love.
Supriya Menon has been working for BBC World since 4 years. Before joining the British news channel, she worked for many reputed news channels in India. Supriya started off her career with more concentration on the rural population in India. Till date, she has always concentrated on Mumbai and the issues taking place in the metropolitan city. There is news that after her marriage she will be moving to her hometown Kerala. The bright reporter is well known in the media industry for the wonderful articles that she has prepared to shed light on some of the major social issues in India. Supriya has written these articles only after thorough investigation in most of the issues and she also devised her own valuable solutions in order to solve the problems.
Some of Supriya's recent articles are about the effect of inflation on pay wages, how tough it is to find a good house in Mumbai, radio boost for marginalised women, the importance of young people's vote in India, how Indian IT firms are relocating their business from India to foreign lands etc. Here is a link to the reporter's articles: http://journalisted.com/supriya-menon.
