6 mar : Rahul Mahajan’s hunt for a perfect bride on TV is over as the reality show star picked up Bengali girl Dimpy Ganguly to tie the knot in true Bollywood style.
Mahajan, who has had a troubled past with drug abuse charges and an acrimonious marriage and divorce from childhood friend Shweta Singh, hopes that it is a “happily ever after” for him.
Mahajan chose 21-year-old Dimpy, a model and dancer, over Nikunj Malik, 25, and Harpreet Chhabra, 20, on reality TV show ‘Rahul Dulhaniya Le Jayega’ broadcast by NDTV Imagine.
Rahul decided to go ahead with his wedding despite the recent death of his uncle Praveen Mahajan, who was convicted for killing his politician father Pramod Mahajan in 2006.
The Bengali-style wedding was held in a luxurious Mumbai suburban hotel and the couple wore outfits designed by famous fashion designers Ashley Rebello, Neeta Lulla and Vikram Phadnis.
34-year-old Rahul, who’s facing drug abuse charges, had requested a Delhi court for releasing his passport so that his wife and he could spend their honeymoon in Maldives.
“Its a great feeling. I am both excited and nervous. I really believe marriages are made in heaven and this time I’ll give whatever I have to make my wife happy. It is going to be happily ever after,” Rahul had said.
Dimpy, who was a favourite due to her “crackling chemistry” with Rahul, said she was always confident of being ‘Mrs Mahajan’ as she knows how to handle the media better than the other contestants.
