Bollywood hunk John Abraham is taken!

Well, that was pretty much on the cards but he is now married to girlfriend Priya Runchal.

After his break-up with Bipasha, John was very secretive about his personal life.

His relationship was surreptitiously under wraps until Priya started accompanying John on social dos.

Even their wedding was a hush-hush affair, confirmed only by a tweet from John Abraham‏, "Wishing you and your loved ones a blessed 2014! May this year bring you love, good fortune and joy. Love, John and Priya Abraham."

Immediately NRI Priya Runchal was now the talk of the town.

The wedding was pre-planned and that the two preferred a simple court marriage that does not involve too many rituals and traditions.

None of his friends from the industry have been a part of this wedding.

Priya is born and brought up in Los Angeles. Her family is from Kangra in Himachal Pradesh, of which Dharamshala is the headquarters.

She has studied law in University of California, Los Angeles (USA). She has worked with IFC. Presently she is working in a leading firm in the Bandra-Kurla Complex (Mumbai).
Priya is an investment banker and financial analyst and is currently in the U.S. pursuing higher studies.

Priya has done MBA in London.

Bipasha Basu toppled:

John Abraham and Bipasha Basu split after almost 10 years of relationship had come as a shock to many.

It is now being speculated that the reason behind their break-up was Priya Runchal.

Ms Runchal apparently met John and Bipasha at a gym in Mumbai.

All three used to work out in the same gym. Though John and Priya initially exchanged nothing more than a few smiles; their closeness slowly increased without the knowledge of John's then-girlfriend Bipasha Basu.
