Mumbai: Shiv Sena chief Bal Thackeray's granddaughter Neha married a Gujarati guy in Mumbai on December 4, sources said.

Neha is the daughter of Bal Thackeray's eldest son late Bindumadhav.

The entire family, excluding Bal Thackeray, attended the wedding at Hotel Taj Lands End.
Neha's mother Madhavi Thackeray welcomed guests like Manohar Joshi, Ram Kadam, Ashish Shelar, Gopal Shetty, Nitin Sardesai and wife Swati, Mangesh Sangle, Shirish Parkar, Shishir Shinde and others.

Raj Thackeray, too, attended the reception, along with his wife and sons, reports said.
Meanwhile, there is a speculation in media circles that the Thackeray's son-in-law converted to Hinduism sometime back, but the family has denied the reports.

Mumbai, Nov. 23: Times are changing, and faster than Bal Thackeray knows it.

The Shiv Sena patriarch watched his party bite the dust yesterday in its Konkan stronghold, routed by a former Sainik.

But the threat to Thackeray’s ideology seems to be coming from closer home. On Sunday, his nephew’s daughter Neha Gupte, 25, married Mohammad Nabi, 27. The wedding was kept a secret from his famous mama by Vilas Gupte.

“I haven’t had the courage to tell him yet, but I’m sure Bal mama will bless the couple,” said Gupte, an anxious but proud father, at the reception.

By all available reports, the bride converted to Islam and had a nikaah three months ago at Bandra (West), a posh Mumbai suburb.

Thackeray lives close by, in Bandra (East), recently declared Mumbai’s dirtiest area by the municipal corporation.

“They had the nikaah three months ago in Bandra, which was attended by Neha’s friends,” confirmed Mohammed Qayoom, the groom’s brother.

The bride and her father are denying the conversion. Asked if she changed her religion for the nikaah as is mandatory, Neha smiled and said: “I don’t need to convert, I have a very adjusting husband.”

Haji Afzal Hussain Khan, the bridegroom’s father, said: “They did have a nikaah. Frankly, it depends on the girl’s family when they want to tell him (Thackeray).”

Neha and Mohammed Nabi, both physiotherapists, met a year and a half ago at a private clinic in Kurla. They fell in love and decided to tie the knot. “But the family took some time to come around,” admitted the couple.

Gupte does not think there could be a permanent falling out between his family and the Thackerays over Neha’s marriage. “I’m sure when I do tell him, Bal mama will accept it like the rest of us have.”

Neha and Nabi had a registered marriage on Sunday followed by a reception at Wadala, central Mumbai. The bride looked radiant in her red-and-gold zari sari beside her handsome groom in a beige suit.

Gupte’s mother and the Sena boss are first cousins. “One of the reasons I kept the news of the wedding from Bal mama was that we did not want to trouble them during the election campaign.”

The Sena lost both bypolls held on Saturday, with its Malwan candidate losing his deposit to ex-Sainik Narayan Rane.

The marriage is significant because of Thackeray’s past. A saffron supporter, he would denounce Muslims as “Pakade” (Pakistan-backers). In 1999, the Supreme Court barred him from voting in or contesting elections for inciting Hindu-Muslim riots.

Given this, it is but natural that Gupte has not told his uncle. “But I will, at the earliest,” he said.

awesome, now if only more of the younger generation can kill all forms of fantical thoughts or following ( as in- in thought and not physically) - we would a better place. and I can't wait till his old man dies of natural causes. He is a stain on Mumbia's image..albeit getting to be an insignificant player.

btw is that not him in the picture with the marraige party?

This reinforces my faith in humanity. If Bal Thackeray's granddaughter can marry a muslim than we can certainly get rid of most hate in this world.

That is "ol' man" Thakeray in the picture all right. The item in post#1 is quite mixed up. First it speaks about Neha Thackeray who is in fact the daughter of Bindumadhav's (aka Binda) daughter. (late) Binda happened to be Thackeray's son, but not the eldest. The eldest is Jaidev. So this girl is Bal's direct grand-daughter. While the other girl Neha Gupte happens to be Vilas Gupte's daughter. Now Vilas Gupte happens to be Thackeray's nephew. So this Neha in question is the old boy's grand-niece. Just seems to be a case of two Nehas here, and with different relationships. So (fortunately) Mohammed Nabi does not seem to have achieved the (dubious) honor of becoming Thackeray's grandson-in-law.

May all these young folks including both Nehas have a prosperous and happy marital life, even though they may be related to an old street goon called Bal Thakeray.
