NEW DELHI -- Bollywood star Akshay Kumar, who attended Asin Thottumkal and Rahul Sharma's wedding, says the marriage was a simple but lovely affair.

Asin, 30, and Rahul, 39, married in a private ceremony last evening.

Akshay is also glad that he was instrumental in the actress and Micromax founder's meeting and wished them a long and happy married life.

"It was a nice affair. Everything went off very well. Asin and Rahul are very private people. Everybody has respected their privacy. It was a very simple affair and today they are very happy and I am very happy that I played the Cupid. I hope that they live like this forever," Akshay told PTI.

The actor was one of the early birds to reach the venue and be a part of the wedding. The duo tied the knot first in a Christian wedding and then settled down for a North Indian ceremony in the evening.

Asked whose side he represented at the wedding, the actor, one of the first invitees, said, "I was from both the sides."

Akshay, 48, is currently in Delhi to promote his upcoming film Airlift, which releases this Friday, along with co-star Nimrat Kaur and director Raja Krishna Menon.

"It's just a coincidence that I was in Delhi during her wedding. If I would have been in Mumbai, I would have flown to attend the wedding," said Akshay about his Khiladi 786 (2012) co-star.
