Here's some good news for the fans of television actress Mihika Varma. The actress, who played the role of Mihika Iyer on popular show "Yeh Hai Mohabbatein," has tied the knot.

While a lot was said regarding the reason behind Varma's sudden exit from the show, a source told India Forums that the actress had exited the show due to her wedding. Varma got married in a private ceremony with only her close ones in attendance. A picture from Varma's wedding has surfaced where she looks gorgeous in a red bridal wear.

It was earlier reported that as "Yeh Hai Mohabbatein" was taking a seven-year leap, the actress was reluctant to age on-screen, hence she chose to take the exit route. "The show recently took a seven-year leap and while most of the important characters have stayed back, Mihika said that she doesn't want to age on-screen. She has put in her papers and the makers have already started looking for her replacement," a source had told the Times of India.

Soon after Varma quit the show, Sonal Parihar replaced the actress and had also shot for a few episodes. But later, the makers decided to rope in Avantika Hundal to play the part. The production house reportedly took the decision to replace the actress as they felt Sonal didn't quite fit the character of Mihika Iyer.

While Varma surprised her fans with the news of her wedding, her former co-star and good friend Divyanka Tripathi will tie the knot with Vivek Dahiya in July this year. There were reports that the lovebirds were planning an elaborate Hindu traditional wedding, which would be held either in Chandigarh or Bhopal.
