At the event, Joe and his brothers — Kevin and Nick — performed their first awards show since announcing their reunion earlier this year. The couple, who announced their engagement in October 2017, obtained a marriage license on Wednesday. It was through DJ Diplo’s Instagram account that fans and the media got to know about the impromptu nuptials. In one of the DJ’s Instagram Stories, Turner, 23, can be seen entering the chapel in a white trousseau, with Joe, 29, and his brothers, who were dressed in suits. “Gonna hit up this wedding real quick,” Diplo captioned the video.

After they exchanged vows, the newly married couple swapped ring pops instead of wedding bands. PTI SOPHIE TURNER c m y b Ayushmann Khurrana says it is not easy for an outsider to find a place in Bollywood. The actor is glad that he got the right kind of support from the filmmakers, and has acknowledged that it pushes him to “deliver every single time”. “It is not easy to be an outsider and find your feet in Bollywood. I feel that as an actor, I have been truly blessed that all my directors believed in me and trusted me with their films,” Ayushmann said. “I find their love and belief truly humbling and it pushes me to deliver every single time I face the camera. Secondly, it is the right kind of scripts that you choose, I’ve always believed that content is the king. There is a certain self-belief, an affirmation that my choices are working,” added the actor, who has been roped in as the brand ambassador of globally renowned watch brand Daniel Wellington. Varied subjects The actor continued: “Most of my films, right from Vicky Donor to Badhaai Ho or my upcoming movies Article 15, Dream Girl and Bala, have different subject lines and have unique concepts attached to them.” After his stint on the small screen, Ayushmann entered the AYUSHMANN KHURRANA industry in the role of a sperm donor in 2012 with Vicky Donor. He faced the failures of Nautanki Saala!, Hawaizaada and Bewakoofiyaan. But he returned with a bang with Dum Laga Ke Haisha as a school dropout, who hesitantly marries an educated but overweight girl. He continued his successful streak with Bareilly Ki Barfi, Shubh Mangal Saavdhan, Badhaai Ho and AndhaDhun. Ayushmann says he started his career as a risk-taker — and that has been his USP . “Being an outsider, the first film was most important and the film confirmed by belief that novel subjects will always work. Seven years later I reiterate that content which is different will still have more takers than the conventional stuff. With four back-to-back hits as an artiste, it feels great that your choices are validated and you are acknowledged for your persistence and uniqueness.” But that comes with a different kind of responsibility.” — IANS
