Actor-MP Nusrat Jahan has separated from her husband Nikhil Jain. ln a statement, Nusrat shared that since the two got married in Turkey and never registered their marriage here, the wedding is not legal.
“As per court of law, it is not a Marriage, but a relationship or a live-in relationship. Thus, the question of divorce does not arise. Our separation happened long back, but I did not speak about it as I intended to keep my private life to myself…The alleged marriage is not legal, valid and tenable; and thus not a marriage at all in the eye of the law,” read Nusrat Jahan’s statement.
In an interview with India Today, Nikhil Jain said, “These are legalities, I don’t really want to comment on anything she’s said because the matter is sub judice in court. I have filed a civil suit in Kolkata and I will not comment on it till it is in court.”
Nusrat Jahan and Nikhil Jain’s wedding was held in the Turkish town of Bodrum. Family and close friends attended the ceremony.
Soon after the wedding in Turkey, the couple held a wedding reception in Kolkata. The reception was attended by West Bengal CM Mamta Banerjee.
