Businessman Nikhil Jain had filed a civil suit against actress-MP Nusrat Jahan on March 8, 2021 at Kolkata's Alipore Judge’s Court for annulment of marriage. 

The much-talked-about controversy surrounding the marriage of actor-turned-politician and Lok Sabha MP from Basirhat, West Bengal Nusrat Jahan and businessman Nikhil Jain is not legally valid, observed the court on Wednesday. 

“Today is my birthday and there cannot be any better gift than this judgement. I do not want to keep any relation with Nusrat. We are not connected at all. She has spoken a lot of negative things in the media about me instead of saying sorry to me. She tried to malign my image but could not. With the blessings of friends and family, I have won this battle in the court,” Nikhil Jain told Zee 24 Ghanta. 

Businessman Nikhil Jain had filed a civil suit against Nusrat Jahan on March 8, 2021 at the Alipore Judge’s Court for annulment of marriage. 

Both parties - Nusrat and Nikhil were represented by their respective lawyers and the court had fixed today’s day to pass the order on the matter - annulment of marriage. 

After completing the hearing in the case, the court finally passed the order, “that the alleged marriage held on June 19, 2019 at Bodrum, Turkey in between the plaintiff and the defendant is not legally valid.”

The court in it’s observation said, “Fact of the plaintiff’s case in nut shell is that the plaintiff is a Hindu and the defendant is a Muslim by faith. That the plaintiff fell in affection with the defendant and proposed her to marry. That on consent, both the parties went to Turkey to celebrate a weeding party in presence of their close friends and relatives following both Western and Indian style and rituals of Hindu marriage. That marriage in question was never registered in Turkey.” 

The order further added, “That their alleged marriage did not take place following any religious practice and that inter-faith marriage in between a Hindu and a Muslim has no legal sanctity under any personal law prevailed in India. That the parties to the suit never get married under the Special Marriage Act so their consensual union can not be treated as a marriage.”
