Sitar maestro Pandit Ravi Shankar has reason to be proud.

His daughter Anoushka Shankar, and Joe Wright, who directed films like Pride and Prejudice and Atonement, tied the knot on Sunday, September 26, in London. The wedding was a private affair that was attended only by close friends and relatives.

Anoushka was earlier dating Delhi-based socialite Nishant Peralta. She met Joe at William Darlrymple’s house for dinner in New Delhi in March 2009. Consecutively, the couple fell in love and moved in together. They are now expecting their first child.

Says a source, “Ever since they started dating, they have been inseparable.”

The rest, as they say, is history.
