Mumbai, March 7 (Calcutta Tube) Bengali model Dimpy Ganguly, who married Rahul Mahajan on a highly-watched and much talked about reality show Rahul Dulhaniya Le Jayega on NDTV Imagine, wants her husband to pursue a political career like his late father, Pramod Mahajan, rather than be in show business.
‘I really want him (Rahul) to pursue a political career,’ Dimpy told reporters here Saturday night after exchanging wedding vows with Rahul on Imagine TV’s ‘Rahul Dulhaniya Le Jayega’.
To this, 35-year-old Rahul said: ‘I’ll first manage my home. Once that is settled, I’ll manage the country.’
Rahul has earlier participated in reality show ‘Bigg Boss’ too.
Dimpy, 21, is a model and actress by profession. She pipped other finalists Nikunj Malik, 25, and Harpreet, 21, apart from over 16,500 applicants from across the country to be Rahul’s wife. And the Bengali lass says she will continue to work after marriage as well.
‘Rahul doesn’t want me to be a housewife. So I’ll work. But I don’t know yet what I will be doing,’ said Dimpy, who was sporting a red wedding outfit designed by Neeta Lulla, the traditional ‘mangal sutra’ in her neck and vermillion on her forehead.
Rahul had vowed to marry a girl on national TV and he kept his promise by doing so with the Kolkata-based girl despite the recent death of his uncle Praveen Mahajan, who was jailed for killing his politician father Pramod Mahajan of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in 2006.
The duo will be registering their marriage Tuesday in Bandra here.
Rahul’s mother Rekha Mahajan was present during the lavish wedding and blessed the couple. His father’s photograph was placed at the venue.
Dimpy’s family members as well as several TV celebrities attended the glitzy event at the Leela Kempinski Hotel here.
