Thiruavananthapuram: Malayalam film actors Fahad Fazil and Nazriya Nazim tied the knot today in an intimate ceremony in the outskirts of the city.

Though invitation to the `nikah`, performed in a convention complex was limited to relatives, family friends and a few chosen bigwigs from the film industry and politics.

Fahad, son of director-producer Fazil, got engaged to Nazriya in January this year after they grew closer during the shooting of a film.

The parents of the couple have held that the alliance was as an arranged marriage after both the families discussed it.

Fahad made his debut in 2002 with not-so-very successful `Kaiyethum Doorath`, directed by his father. But after lying low for some time, he made a sensational comeback doing varied roles with great ease and originality.

The talented youngster, who displayed great versatility, bagged many awards in his second innings and won critical appreciation for a variety of roles.

Nazriya debuted as a child artist in 2006 with the Mammootty film `Palunku,` directed by Blessy. She also had a striking stint as TV anchor and went on to do lead roles in movies.
