Rakhi Sawant got married to UK-based NRI businessman
Reality show star Rakhi Sawant teased people on social media for days with her pictures of bridal bangles and vermillion on her forehead. When asked if she had tied the knot, she gave statements to the media that the pictures were from a bridal shoot. But now, Rakhi has finally confirmed that she got married recently in a private ceremony and her husband is an NRI.
Sharing details about her wedding and husband, Rakhi further 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.
Since mid-July, Rakhi had been sharing pictures and videos in which she was seen wearing vermillion, red bangles and henna on her hands - symbols of a married woman according to Hindu traditions. The pictures triggered speculations that she had got married but she said in a statement that it was just a bridal photoshoot.
