READ HER FULL STATEMENT HERE:
"1. Being on foreign land, as per Turkish Marriage Regulation, the ceremony is invalid. Moreover, since it was an interfaith marriage, it requires validation under Special Marriage Act in India, which did not happen. As per the court of law, it is not a Marriage, but a relationship or a live-in relationship. 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.
"2. My visit to any place for business or for the purpose of leisure, should not concern anyone with whom I have separated. All my expenses have always been borne by me contrary to claims by “someone”.
"3. I would also state that I have solely borne the expenses for my sister's education and my family’s well-being, from day one, as they have been my responsibility. I need not use or keep anyone's Credit Card, which I am not related to anymore. This too can be backed up by evidence.
"4. The one who claims to be “rich” and “been used by me” has been taking money from my Account by accessing my Bank Accounts illegally and by illegitimate means at odd-hours of the night, even post-separation. I have already taken this up with the concerned Banking Authority and a Police Complaint shall be filed shortly.
"In the past, details of all family Accounts were handed over to him, upon his requests and none of me or my family members was aware of any Instructions given to the Bank via. Our Accounts. He has also been mishandling my funds from various accounts without my knowledge and consent. I am still battling it out with the Bank & if need be, would release proof of the same.
"5. Also, my belongings, including my Clothes, Bags and Accessories still remain with them. I am disheartened and disappointed to state that all my family jewellery, given to me by my parents, friends and extended family, including my own hard-earned assets has been illegally held back by them.
"6. Being “rich’ does not always give a man the right to act as a victim & belittle the woman alone, in this society.
I have made my own identity by my sheer hard work; thus I would not allow anyone not related to me to share the limelight or a title or followers, based on my identity.
"7. I would never speak up about my personal life or anyone I am not related to. Thus, people who call themselves “normal people” must not entertain anything which is not related to them. I would request the media to refrain from questioning the wrong person, who has not been a part of my life for long now. Turning a “Sadaharon” person, as claimed by someone, into a “Hero”, giving one-sided stories to malign my image is not desirable. I would earnestly request my friends from the media to not give unnecessary mileage to such people or situations. Thank you, Nusrat Jahan."
This made controversial author Taslima Nasrin write a long Facebook post supporting Nusrat and asking her to divorce Nikhil. On Wednesday, Nusrat shared an Instagram post with the caption that she won’t be remembered as a woman who can keep her mouth shut and she is okay with that.
Taslima Nasrin on Nusrat-Nikhil's relationship. The controversial writer wrote that if indeed Nusrat is in love with her co-actor Yash and if he is the father of Nusrat's child as some reports have claimed, it would be better if the Nusrat and Nikhil part ways. While she admitted that she had felt happy when Nusrat and Nikhil tied the knot, without falling prey to the fact that they belonged to a different religion, she added that Nusrat seemed to be an independent and self-reliant woman. Taslima added that independent women are usually confident and have self-respect and they do not need to depend on a man to bring up a child.
On the other hand, Nusrat is rumoured to be dating BJP candidate and fellow Tollywood actor Yash Dasgupta. Some reports allege she may be carrying his child.
The quote on her story read, "You will blossom in our own way." Even without uttering a single word, Nusrat sure managed to raise the heat of the ongoing speculation. As per reports on various Bengali news websites, she is six months pregnant. However, reports say that her estranged husband, Nikhil Jain, isn't aware of the news.
It was reported in TOI saying that Nusrat got close to Yash during their shooting of SOS Kolkata and they were also on a trip to Rajasthan recently.
