Bengali actress and Trinamool Congress MP Nusrat Jahan finally breaks her silence regarding her separation from Kolkata-based businessman Nikhil Jain. Speculations of a rift in Nusrat and Nikhil jain's marriage had been doing rounds for quite some time. Ending speculations over the status of her marriage, the actor-turned-politician finally released a statement on Wednesday (June 10).
She has claimed that her marriage with Nikhil was not legal in India. Nusrat said that the marriage was according to Turkish Law and is not valid in India as an interfaith marriage in India requires validation under the Special Marriage Act, which never happened. The TMC MP mentioned that as per the court of law, it is not a Marriage, but a relationship or a live-in relationship, which means the question of divorce does not arise.
The Bengali Actress revealed that their separation happened long back, but she did not speak about it as it’s her private life. She made it clear that the alleged marriage was not legal, valid and tenable, thus it wasn't a marriage in the eye of law. Without naming Nikhil, Nusrat in her statement accused him of mishandling her money without her knowledge and consent.
She also alleged that her belongings, like family jewellery and other assets, have been 'illegally held back'. Nusrat got hitched to Nikhil in Turkey in 2019, the same year she made her political debut in the Lok Sabha. TMC supremo and West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee had also graced the wedding reception held in Kolkata.
