Lollywood star Meera caused a stir when a marriage certificate obtained by the media revealed the actor has been married to Pakistani-American airline captain Naveed Pervaiz for over two months now, Express News reported on Wednesday.

Meera had announced her engagement with Captain Naveed, but did not mention a wedding.

Express News obtained a copy of the marriage certificate — disclosed by Meera’s alleged father-in-law — which cites her as having wed Captain Naveed on October 31, 2013, in New York.

The marriage certificate identifies the groom as “Naveed Perveez” and the bride as “Irtaza Rubab” (understood to be Meera’s real name).

According to the document, Naveed was born in 1978 and Meera on Dec 12 in 1977, which makes her 37 years old.

Rumours of the couple’s possible marriage first began circulating in February 2012, when Meera’s family reportedly accepted Naveed’s proposal.

The groom’s family said the plan was to hold off public announcement of the wedding until 2014, when both parties would host a proper wedding ceremony complete with festivities.

The bride, however, denied news of the ‘nikkah‘ released today, and told Express News that she was completely focused on her hospital for now.

Meera has said in the past that people are intent on maligning her unnecessarily to disturb and distract her from her efforts for building a charity hospital, which is intended to provide free cardio services to the impoverished people of Haroonabad.

    The media has no right to infringe on private information and documentation of individuals. Learn to establish some etiquette.Recommend

    Express news group have no right to be a peeping tom in someone’s private life. An Actor or a media person and even a politician is not a public property but sadly our media and in general our society acts like that it is an obligation to destroy everyone’s privacy to get some attention and ratings.

    As the chauvinistic male dominated society of Pakistan gasps about the married status of a Lollywood star; the female gender is strongly moving forward getting recognition & accolades in most fields as their male counterparts dabble in useless jealousy, petty gossip & mean rants to divert that they are falling behind in most fields!
