Mumbai: Bollywood item girl Rakhi Sawant on Sunday confirmed she has tied the knot with UK based businessman Ritesh. She said, “I love him. I have married my fan. A fan who loved me truly.
She further revealed that Ritesh is a 36-year-old UK based businessman. “I get hundreds of messages from fans every day. But this one day, I was feeling very low and a fan messaged me asking, ‘Why I am so low?’ I was stunned! So, I asked him how he figured that I am feeling that way. To which he said, ‘I have been your fan for long enough to understand how you feel.’ I just fell for him. I knew that day that I will marry him one day,” she said.
On being asked why she kept her marriage a secret, Sawant said, “I was worried as I have seen how earlier women in the industry wouldn’t get work if people came to know that they were married. When it comes to big actresses like Deepika and Priyanka, it is okay if they declare their marriages as they always get work. But I do item numbers. I didn’t know if I would get work if people came to know that I am a married woman now. But I think I have to keep that behind me as I am a very happy woman today. I got married to the man of my dreams.”
Rakhi dated Ritesh for a year and finally tied the knot on July 28 at a five-star hotel in Andheri, Mumbai.
After marriage, Rakhi says she cannot wait to start a family and plans to have babies by 2020. She further added she wants to have triplets like Farah Khan.
