Malayalam actor Lena on Tuesday revealed on her Instagram account that she has been married to Indian Air Force (IAF) fighter pilot Prasanth Balakrishnan Nair, hours after Prime Minister Narendra Modi named him as one of the four astronauts undergoing training for the groundbreaking Gaganyaan mission here.

The ‘Sneham’ actor also shared a photograph of her and Nair posing with the ISRO chairman S Somanath.

In a post on a social media platform, she said she was waiting for this significant announcement to let everybody know that she had tied the knot with Nair through an arranged marriage on January 17.

Lena said that Nair being awarded with the ‘astronaut wings’ by the PM is a “historic moment of pride”.

“Today, on February 27, 2024, our Prime Minister Modi ji awarded the first Indian ‘astronaut wings to IAF fighter pilot Prasanth Balakrishnan Nair. It is a historic moment of pride for our country, our state of Kerala and me personally.

“In order to maintain the officially required confidentiality, I was waiting for this announcement to let you know that I got married to Prasanth on January 17 this year in a traditional ceremony through an arranged marriage,” the actor said.

Nair’s family, which is from Nenmara in the Palakkad district, was not available for immediate comment.

Earlier in the day, residents of Nenmara erupted in joy as the Prime Minister unveiled the names of four astronauts, which included Group Captain Prasanth Balakrishnan Nair. The other three astronauts are Group Captains Angad Pratap and Ajit Krishnan, and Wing Commander Shubhanshu Shukla.
