Wedding bells ring for Rahul Mahajan, ex-Bigg Boss contestant, brother of parliamentarian, Poonam Mahajan and son of former union cabinet minister Pramod Mahajan, once again, as he reportedly tied the knot with Kazakhstan model Natalya Ilina, on Tuesday, 20 November in a private ceremony. Attended by 25 members of the family and the close circle of the couple, it was held in a temple in Malabar Hills.
Rahul confirmed his marriage to Natalya and also revealed that he knew the model since a year and a half but they got close quite recently.
Speaking about the low-key marriage, he said, “I’ve had big weddings before, but those relationships didn’t last. I’ve known Natalya for a year and a half, even though we got close recently. She wants to start her own business, but I’ll go with whatever she has decided to do. Family life and peace of mind is important.” Rahul also added in the interview that despite there being a considerable age difference between him and Natalya, they look pretty good together. He said, “I am 6’2” and she is 5’10””.
Before Natalya, Rahul was married to pilot Shweta Singh and reality TV star Dimpy Ganguly. Both his marriages ended with accusations of domestic violence. His first wife Shweta was his childhood friend and the two knew each other for 13 years. She had accused him of physically abusing her. The couple got separated in December 2007, and were granted divorce in 2008.
In the same year, Rahul Mahajan participated in Bigg Boss 8, where closer to grand finale, he tried to escape the house and was thrown out of the show. He was linked to starlets like Payal Rohatgi and Monica Bedi on Bigg Boss.
Rahul Mahajan got married to Dimpy Ganguly on national TV in 2010 on reality show Rahul Dulhaniya Le Jaayega. The couple got divorced four years later on February 25, 2014, after his second wife accused him of kicking, punching and beating her up.
