Earlier this week, several pictures of Big Boss star Rakhi Sawant tying the knot with her long-time rumoured beau Adil Khan Durrani made rounds on social media.
In the photos, Sawant dons a white and pink coloured sharara, while Durrani is seen sporting a casual look with a shirt and jeans. In one shot, the two are also signing a paper which appears to be their marriage registration form.
On Wednesday, Sawant finally took to social media to confirm the news to her followers. “Finally, I’m happy and so excited that I got married! My love is forever now. All my unconditional love for you, Adil!” penned the Main Hoon Na actor in an Instagram post.
In a recent interview with ETimes, Sawant also revealed that she officially tied the knot with Adil in July last year. “Yes, I got married to Adil in July last year after three months of knowing him. We had a nikah ceremony and a court marriage. Since he stopped me from disclosing it, I remained tightlipped for the past seven months. He felt that it would get difficult to find a suitor for his sister if people got to know about our marriage,” expressed the Masti star.
She then went on to detail how she met Adil while going through a rough patch in her life. She said, “I was almost in depression because of the betrayal of my loved ones. However, much to my surprise, that’s when Adil came into my life and made promises to love me forever. He also offered to marry me and we immediately got hitched. I didn’t want to wait, as I have a strong desire to become a mother. Unfortunately, his family has still not accepted me.”
Speaking about her newly married life, Sawant disclosed that her relationship is on a rocky road right now. “A lot happened while I was away locked up inside the Big Boss Marathi 4 house recently. I will elaborate on my experiences when the time is right. At this point, all I want is to save my relationship and I want the world to know that I am married to Adil. These days, I’m quite frustrated due to a couple of things, so it was necessary to make my marriage public.”
Prior to this, Sawant was allegedly married to Ritesh Singh, an NRI businessman with whom she entered the Bigg Boss 15 house as wild cards. However, they both soon parted ways after she learned that her marriage wasn’t legal in India as Singh hadn’t divorced his first wife.
