Recently, pictures of Rakhi Sawant surfaced the internet where she was wearing a bridal dress. When questioned about this, she had denied any rumors about being married and had said that it was for a bridal shoot. But, more images surfaced the internet where she was enjoying her honeymoon. That is when Rakhi actually came on record to say that she is indeed a married woman.
About Rakhi Sawant’s Husband
As per Rakhi’s statement, her husband is an NRI named Ritesh. Ritesh works in Donald Trump’s company in the United Kingdom (UK).
In an interview with Spotboye, she mentioned that she was scared to admit the news earlier. She used the “bridal shoot” story to cover this up. But, her honeymoon pictures – which showed Rakhi Sawant with vermillion (sindoor) and henna (mehndi) – went viral. Along with the sindoor and mehendi, the Bollywood actress was also wearing red bangles. These bangles are traditionally worn by a bride on her wedding, and she continues to wear the bangle set during the first year of her marriage. Due to this reason, she had to come clean about her husband.
When reporters asked how she met her husband, Rakhi responded:
“It’s a fab story. He was my fan. He whatsapped me. Messaging and then talking to him, we became friends with the passage of time. This happened about a year-and-half back.”
Why haven’t we seen a picture of Rakhi Sawant’s husband yet?
Rakhi has mentioned that her husband has gone back to the United Kingdom. She is still in India at the moment and is in the process of applying for a visa for the country. She went on to say how she will continue shuttling between the UK and India so that she can continue working in the Indian entertainment industry.
Rakhi Sawant’s Past Relationships
Rakhi has been known to create lots of drama in front of the press. She is also known for her swayamvar. While Elesh Parunjanwala may have been the best out of the sixteen contestants, the two were clearly not compatible. Due to this, their relationship ended before they even reached the stage of marriage. But, they did manage to bag a TV show by Life Ok by the name – Mai, Meri Patni Aur Woh.
Rakhi has also dated numerous people from the film fraternity such as Abhishek Awasthi, Mika Singh, and Deepak Kalal. But, none of them seemed to have lasted.
With Rakhi’s breakup with Deepak Kalal being fairly recent (they planned to get married in December 2018), her news about her marriage with Ritesh Pandey came as a surprise.
But, there have also been many speculations that this is yet another publicity stunt by Rakhi Sawant. To counter this, Rakhi Sawant’s husband, Ritesh Pandey, came on record to confirm his existence.
We want to congratulate the new couple and hope them the best for their future together. Hoping to see a picture of the couple soon.
