Rakhi Sawant has finally admitted that she has recently got married. When her pictures wearing bridal outfit went viral on social media, Rakhi was asked by many if she got married to which she replied that she was dressed so for a bridal photoshoot. One of the Bollywood paparazzi Viral Bhayani had put up her marriage post on instagram and many of the followers had asked him to delete it as it was false news, just a bridal photoshoot and she herself had denied it. After initially dismissing her wedding as a photoshoot, now Rakhi Sawant has confirmed that she is indeed married to a UK-based NRI named Ritesh.
The celeb ‘Rakhi Sawant’ – known for courting media attention – has now said that she kept her July wedding a secret out of fear. “Yes, I got married on July 28. Actually, main darr gayi thi. I am confirming the news with you today. I wanted to have a quiet, hidden or secret wedding,” she said in an interview to a leading website.
Elaborating on the reasons for his fear, she explained that her husband wants to stay away from public eye. “Mere husband ko media etc pasand nahi. Unko kisi ke saamne aana nahi tha. Shaadi toh family ke beech mein hoti hai, duniya ko thodi na bulana hota hai!” Talking more about her secret wedding, Rakhi Sawant told, “My mom, brother and everyone in the family are elated.”
The wedding was intimate with just family members. She told about her private wedding, “We got married at hotel JW Marriott in Mumbai. He is a Hindu NRI and I am a Christian, so we had a Hindu and a Catholic wedding both in the hotel itself. Prior to that, we had got married in Court earlier in the day.” “My husband ‘Ritesh’ is a very private person and does not prefer talking to the media or being seen about much. He is a businessman and a wonderful, sorted man,” Rakhi added more detais about UK-based NRI ‘Ritesh’.
She called her wedding with UK-based NRI ‘Ritesh’ a “WhatsApp love affair- wedding” as they started talking on WhatsApp and he also proposed her on the same platform, “He whatsapped me. Messaging each other and then talking, we became friends with the passage of time. This happened about a year-and-half back,” she said. “Ritesh was my fan ever since he first saw my first interview with Prabhu Chawla.”
In an earlier interview, The Controversy Queen-Rakhi Sawant had said she will shuttle between the UK and India for work. “In fact, he has already left. My visa is underway and I will join him after the whole process. Of course I shall continue to work whatever I get in India, so will shuttle for that. As I always wanted to produce TV shows and I think my long-standing dream or wish will now be fulfilled. I heartily thank Jesus for giving me such a wonderful husband.”
Rakhi Sawant also thanked Jesus for fulfilling her dream to marry Ritesh, “After knowing him, I prayed very hard to Jesus that I must become his wife. Meri woh khawish toh ab poori ho gayi (My this dream is now fulfilled). God has been kind to me so far.” Rakhi also told about her family planning, “My husband has promised me that when we have babies, we will have a baby photoshoot, my hasband will be ready to face the media by then.” Rakhi Sawant told that she plans to have babies by 2020 and wants to have triplets like Farah Khan. “Working women don’t have too much time. My body clock is ticking as I am 33.”
