Day after Trinamool Congress (TMC) MP and Bengali actor Nusrat Jahan said that her marriage with Nikhil Jain is "invalid in India", the latter has released a statement, calling the former's allegations "baseless, derogatory and devoid of truth".
In a nine-point statement, Nikhil said that Jahan's behaviour towards him started changing after August last year during a film shoot. He further said that he asked Jahan to get their marriage registered but she avoided his requests.
Hitting out at Jahan for changing her attitude towards their married life, Nikhil said that the TMC MP left his flat with all her belonging and documents in November last year and shifted to her Ballygunge flat.
The businessman further said that this incident left him "disheartened", adding that he filed a Civil Suit against her in Alipore Judges' Court "for annulment of their marriage" in March this year.
