Soon after having a fairytale destination wedding, rumors about separation started buzzing all around for Tollywood Actress & TMC MP Nusrat Jahan. She finally broke her silence on the rumors about separation with her husband Nikhil Jain and claimed her marriage “invalid”. Nusrat’s claim makes the rumor obvious.
“Being on foreign land, as per Turkish Marriage Regulation, the ceremony is invalid. It was an interfaith marriage; it requires validation under the Special Marriage Act in India which didn’t happen. As per the court of Law, it’s not marriage but a relationship or live-in relationship. Thus, the question of divorce does not arise” stated Nusrat.
Following Nusrat’s comment her partner Nikhil Jain said, “I don’t want to say anything. Everything will be decided by the court. The matter is in court now”.
Nusrat has also deleted their couple pictures from her Instagram page. Their wedding pictures are also unavailable in the timeline. Nusrat’s statement came amid speculation of a rift in her marriage and reports that she is living separately. It is also being reported that TMC MP is also expecting a baby. One of her statements to the media has clarified their separation ‘long back’. “Our separation happened long back, but I didn’t speak about it as I intended to keep my private life to myself. Thus, my action must not be questioned by ‘separation’, by the media, or anybody I am related to. The alleged marriage is not legal, valid, and tenable and thus, was not a marriage at all in the eye of the law” she concluded.
The fairy tale marriage ceremony of Nusrat Jahan and Nikhil Jain:
Nusrat Jahn and Nikhil Jain had tied a knot back in 2019 in Bodrum, Turkey. Their wedding pictures has gone viral on social media. After winning the Lok Sabha election in 2019, Jahan hosted a grand wedding reception at a five-star hotel in Kolkata. The marriage was attended by several dignitaries along with CM Mamata Banerjee. That marriage was the most happening marriage of 2019. Netizens showered love for the couple. On their one-year anniversary, Nusrat had shown her love for her beloved husband on social media. Jahan had also posted a picture from the wedding and wrote, “Towards a happily ever after with @nikhiljain09”. The groom has also shared pictures from the function on his social media handle.
After her wedding ceremony, Nusrat was spotted in many occasions dressed as a newly wedded Indian Bride adorning the “sindoor”, wearing red & white bangles or “churas”. But now she is terming the Marriage “invalid”.
Nusrat’s Claim for separation:
Nusrat has posted a statement on social media, saying that her marriage to Jain had taken place in Turkey and was not registered under the Special Marriage Act in India, which deals with interfaith marriages. So, eventually, according to the Special Marriage Act in India, their marriage is invalid. Also, marriages taken outside India need to be registered under the Foreign Marriage Act, 1969. As they have no certification under this marriage act too, it is proved that their marriage was invalid in India. She also accused Jain of misleading her money and using her account without her approval. Nusrat also claimed that Jain continued to hold her assets like jewelry, clothes, and some of her very personal assets into his possession.
While accusing Nikhil Jain on social media, she said, “I would also state that I have solely borne the expenses for my sister’s education and my family’s well-being from day one as they have been my responsibility. I need not use or keep anyone’s Credit Card, who (sic) I am not related to anymore. This too can be backed up by evidence. The one who claims to be ‘rich’ and ‘been used by me’ has been taking money from my account by accessing my bank accounts illegally and by illegitimate means at odd-hours of the night, even post-separation. I have already taken this up with the concerned Banking Authority and a Police Complaint shall be filed shortly. Being rich does not give the man the right to act like a victim and belittle the woman alone in this society”.
Last Wednesday, she posted a tweet along with her picture and wrote, “I won’t be remembered as a woman who can keep her mouth shut…and I am ok with that…#throwbackpic#deserted#retrospective”. This post depicts her strong mindset with the accusation and decision.
Nikhil’s call on their ‘Invalid’ marriage:
Businessman Nikhil Jain alleged that Nusrat had avoided his request for a registered marriage. He also claimed that Jahan’s behavior started changing towards him since 2020 when she started shooting a film last year. Jain didn’t talk openly about their controversial marriage. But recently, he opened up a bit and said, “I devoted all my time and resources to being a faithful and responsible husband. Friends, family, and people close to us know everything that I did for her. My unconditional support for her is unchallenged. Since August 2020 during the shooting of a film, my wife’s behavior started changing towards me, for reasons best known to her. During our stay together I requested her on a number of occasions to get the marriage registered but she avoided my requests”. Jain also filed a civil suit against Nusrat on March 8 for the annulment of their marriage.
New curiosity on Nusrat’s marriage controversy:
There were reports of Nusrat’s pregnancy but her estranged husband had clarified that they have not been living together since last one year and thus he does not know about the pregnancy. There were speculations that Nusrat Jahan might have an affair with actor Yash Dasgupta. Though Nusrat hasn’t put any comment on that issue. Nusrat already left Jain’s flat and returned to her flat in Ballygunge, Kolkata. She also went to Jaipur and Ajmer Sharif with Yash. Their pictures went viral on social media. Amid this, her pregnancy raised even more curiosity among people. Seems like new things getting disclosed every day.
Since she is a TMC MP, members of the opponent parties are also using this controversy against her and pointing out fingers on her. Everyone is almost judging her or commenting on her character.
Though it is a matter of her personal life, but being a public figure, things does not seem to remain private for Nusrat Jahan. Social media is flooded with their images and statements and of course everyone is seen to have their set of opinions on their matter as well.
We would only hope that their tangles get settled cordially and they as two individuals have their share of happy lives !!
