Mumbai: Kolkata-based businessman Nikhil Jain said that he has filed for an annulment of his marriage with actress-turned-politician Nusrat Jahan, India Today reported.
He said, “These are legalities, I really don’t want to comment on anything he said as the matter is sub judice. I have filed a civil suit in Kolkata and I will not comment on it till it is in court.”
Further, he clarified that he has filed for an annulment in Kolkata and has been removed with effect from November 2020.
Putting rest to pregnancy rumours, actress-turned-politician Nusrat Jahan finally broke her silence on Wednesday and released an official statement about her tumultuous marriage with Nikhil Jain.
In a statement issued by Nusrat, she said that since their marriage was not legal, the question of divorce does not arise. She said that they had separated a long time ago but that she had decided to keep her life private.
Without mentioning names, the actress accused her estranged husband of mishandling her money and accessing her bank accounts illegally.
“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,” she added.
Jahan, who married Jain, in June 2019, in an intimate ceremony in Turkey, said that her interfaith marriage with the Kolkata-based businessman is ‘invalid’ as it was never registered under the Special Marriage Act in India.
The couple had hosted a grand reception in Kolkata. The ceremony was attended by prominent personalities from the film industry, politics and business world, including her friend and fellow actor-MP Mimi Chakraborty.
