Now, a new viral photo of her is being widely shared on social media, in which she can be seen flaunting her baby bump, which seemingly confirms the news of her pregnancy. Authenticity of the image is not known yet.
In the photo, Nusrat can be seen posing with Bengali actor Srabanti Chatterjee and others friends. There still hasn't been any confirmation from the actress about her pregnancy so far neither is there any confirmation on who the father is.
Take a look:
Nusrat married boyfriend, Nikhil Jain in an intimate ceremony in Turkey in 2019. The couple hosted a grand wedding reception in Kolkata which was attended by several dignitaries including West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, and several Bengali film actors.
Amid rumours of divorce, Nusrat stated that her marriage to Nikhil was not legal in India and hence there was no question of divorcing him. "Being on foreign land, as per Turkish Marriage Regulation, ceremony is invalid. It was an interfaith marriage, it requires validation under Special Marriage Act in India which didn't happen. As per court of Law, it's not marriage but relationship or live-in relationship," Nusrat, 31, said in a statement, reported news agency ANI. "Thus, the question of divorce does not arise."
"Our separation happened long back, but I did not speak about it as I intended to keep my private life to myself. Thus, my actions must not be questioned based on 'separation', by the media or anybody I am not related to. The alleged marriage is not legal, valid and tenable; and thus, was not a marriage at all in the eye of law," she alleged.
Commenting on Nusrat's statement, Jain told reporters, "I don't want to say anything. Everything will be decided by the court. The matter is in court."
Reports of Nusrat being romantically involved with actor-politician Yash are also in full swing. However, neither Yash nor Nusrat have confirmed the news so far.
