MUMBAI ( Reuters) - Actor Sanjay Dutt married longtime girlfriend Manyata in a traditional Hindu ceremony in Mumbai on Monday, two years after they started dating.

Television channels broadcast footage of the action hero and his bride leaving a friend’s house dressed in wedding outfits.

The ceremony itself was a low-key affair and hardly anyone from the Bollywood fraternity was present.

Dutt, out on bail after being sentenced in connection with the 1993 Mumbai bombings, told reporters outside the venue he was “very happy”.

This is the 48-year-old actor’s third marriage. His first wife died of brain tumour and his marriage to former model Rhea Pillai ended in divorce.

Dutt has a daughter from his first marriage.
