In a shocking revelation, Trinamool MP Nusrat Jahan on Wednesday said that her marriage with businessman Nikhil Jain was never valid hence there is no question of a divorce.
Issuing a statement, the actor-turned-politician said that an interfaith marriage in India requires validation under the Special Marriage Act, which never happened in her case.
"Our separation happened long back, but I did not speak about it as I intended to keep my private life to myself," the Basirhat MP said. It may be recalled that Nusrat Jahan tied the knot with Nikhil Jain in Turkey in 2019.
She got married few weeks after making her political debut winning the Lok Sabha Elections 2019. Nusrat later hosted a reception in Kolkata which chief minister Mamata Banerjee attended.
