Rakhi Sawant has confirmed tying the knot with an NRI. Her honeymoon pictures are going viral on social media.
Rakhi Sawant has finally admitted to tying the knot with an NRI businessman. Earlier, pictures of Rakhi, wearing a bridal dress, surfaced on internet. The pictures sparked rumours that the reality show star has married an NRI. But Rakhi rubbished the rumours saying that it was for a bridal photoshoot. When IndiaToday.in quizzed Rakhi on her pictures, she said that she is very much single.
But now, after Rakhi’s honeymoon pictures went viral online, she admitted that she recently got married to an NRI. Rakhi confirmed the same in a conversation to Spotboye.
Talking to the website, she said, “Main darr gayi thi, haan maine shaadi kar li hai. I am confirming the news with you today. (I was scared but yes, I got married. I am confirming the news with you.).”
Rakhi also shared details about her husband. She said, “His name is Ritesh and he is in the UK. In fact, he has already left. My visa is underway and I will join him. Of course, I shall continue to work whatever I get in India, so will shuttle for that. I always wanted to produce TV shows and I think my long-standing dream will now be fulfilled. I thank Jesus for giving me such a wonderful husband.”
“He was my fan ever since he first saw my first interview with Prabhu Chawla. He whatsapped me. Messaging and then talking to him, we became friends with the passage of time. This happened about a year-and-half back,” she added.
She went on to say, “After knowing him, I prayed very hard to Jesus that I must become his wife. Woh khawish toh poori ho gayi (That dream is now fulfilled). God has been kind to me so far.”
Earlier, talking to IndiaToday.in, Rakhi had said, “I was doing a bridal shoot at JW Marriott, I don’t know why people are saying that I am married. I am not married, I am not in a relationship. I am very much single.”
In the honeymoon pictures of Rakhi, the reality show star is seen in a red robe, with sindoor and mehendi, all indicators that she has indeed tied the knot recently.
Previously, in 2009, Rakhi got engaged to Toronto-based businessman Elesh Parujanwala on national television. However, she called it off after a few months, admitting that she got engaged to him for money and claimed that he was financially not well off.
“I got engaged to Elesh for money, I wanted to buy a flat. Why should I lie? I didn’t want to marry someone only to divorce him later. I am not dating anyone. Also, I am not getting good prospects because of my image created by the media. I don’t want to marry a young guy or a struggler. I am looking for a mature and affluent man, who can take care of me and my needs,” she told The Times Of India in an interview back then.
