Our marriage with Nikhil Jain was not legal, and we divorced a long time ago: Nusrat Jahan TMC MP.

NEW DELHI: TMC MP Nusrat Jahan said on Wednesday that her marriage to Nikhil Jain was illegitimate and that the two had been separated for a long time. “The wedding is null and void since it takes place on foreign soil, according to Turkish Marriage Law. Furthermore, since it was an interfaith marriage, it needed validation under India’s Special Marriage Act, which was not done. According to the law, it is a partnership or a live-in relationship, not marriage. As a result, the issue of divorce does not occur “In a statement, the TMC MP said.

“Our separation happened long back, but I did not speak about it as I intended to keep my private life to myself,” she said.


Here’s the full text of her statement:


“1. Being on foreign land, as per Turkish Marriage Regulation, the ceremony is invalid. Moreover, since it was an interfaith marriage, it requires validation under Special Marriage Act in India, which did not happen. As per the 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. Thus, my actions must not be questioned based on “separation”, by the media or anybody I am not related to. The alleged marriage is not legal, valid and tenable; and thus, was not a marriage at all in the eye of law.


2. My visit to any place for business or for the purpose of leisure, should not concern anyone with whom I have separated. All my expenses have always been borne by me contrary to claims by “someone”.


3. 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, which I am not related to anymore. This too can be backed up by evidence.


4. 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.


“In the past, details of all family Accounts were handed over to him, upon his requests and none of me or my family members was aware of any Instructions given to the Bank via. Our Accounts. He has also been mishandling my funds from various accounts without my knowledge and consent. I am still battling it out with the Bank & if need be, would release proof of the same.


5. Also, my belongings, including my Clothes, Bags and Accessories still remain with them. I am disheartened and disappointed to state that all my family jewellery, given to me by my parents, friends and extended family, including my own hard-earned assets has been illegally held back by them.

6. Being “rich’ does not always give a man the right to act as a victim & belittle the woman alone, in this society.


I have made my own identity by my sheer hard work; thus I would not allow anyone not related to me to share the limelight or a title or followers, based on my identity.


7. I would never speak up about my personal life or anyone I am not related to. Thus, people who call themselves “normal people” must not entertain anything which is not related to them. I would request the media to refrain from questioning the wrong person, who has not been a part of my life for long now. Turning a “Sadaharon” person, as claimed by someone, into a “Hero”, giving one-sided stories to malign my image is not desirable. I would earnestly request my friends from the media to not give unnecessary mileage to such people or situations. Thank you, Nusrat Jahan.”

While there were rumours that Nusrat and Nikhil’s marriage was in trouble, it was also confirmed that Nusrat was dating fellow actor Yash Dasgupta. They recently returned from a trip to Rajasthan.

Nusrat said in an interview with the Calcutta Times that she would prefer not to comment on her personal life. “The details of my personal life are not for public consumption. I’ve always been put on trial by some. But I’m not going to say anything this time. People can only judge me based on my performance as an actor. It is my personal life, good, poor, or ugly, and I am not going to share it with anyone,” she had said.

After dating for a while, Nusrat Jahan and Nikhil Jain married on June 19, 2019. While the two married in a small ceremony in Turkey, they later hosted a wedding reception in Kolkata, where Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee was invited.
