Suhail Shariff, Sherlyn's lawyer, verified the same to a media outlet. Rakhi was meant to open her dancing academy at 3 p.m. today (Jan 19). Rakhi's personal life has been making news. She just announced her marriage to Adil Khan Durrani in July of last year. A little nikah and a judicial wedding were held.

Rakhi posted images of legal paperwork as well as recordings of the nikah ceremony. While Adil originally rejected the news, he subsequently accepted it and told the public that he is married to Rakhi.

Sherlyn and Rakhi thereafter filed FIRs against one other for allegedly using 'objectionable' words. Sherlyn accused Rakhi of endorsing filmmaker Sajid Khan and making disrespectful and unpleasant comments.
