Bengali actress and politician Nusrat Jahan has revealed on June 9, 2021, that her two-year-old marriage with businessman Nikhil Jain is not legal. She had tied the knot with Nikhil in a dreamy ceremony in Turkey in June 2019. She also said that the couple had separated a long time ago and that she did not want to bring it in public glare.
According to a news report in ANI, Nusrat revealed in a statement saying, “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 a live-in relationship. Thus, the question of divorce does not arise.”
