Afshan and her husband Nabil tied the knot in 2018, in a lavish ceremony that she said took her a year to plan.
Among those in attendance were her Harry Potter co-stars Katie Leung, who played Cho Chang, and Bonnie Wright, who played Ginny Weasley.
Her rise to fame in the Harry Potter films came almost accidentally, when she auditioned “just for fun” when casting agents visited her school.
And although she has found success in her role as Padma, whose twin sister was Parvati, she now enjoys working as a beauty influencer with 173,000 Instagram followers.
The Harry Potter films have starred a number of cast members, including Emma Watson, Rupert Grint, Tom Felton, and lead actor Daniel Radcliffe.
