I am confirming the news with you),” a Spotboye report quoted Rakhi Sawant as saying.
Sharing details about her private wedding and NRI husband, Rakhi said, "His name is Ritesh and he is in the UK. In fact, he has already left. My visa is underway and I will join him. Of course I shall continue to work whatever I get in India, so will shuttle for that. I always wanted to produce TV shows and I think my long-standing dream will now be fulfilled."
"I thank Jesus for giving me such a wonderful husband. He was my fan ever since he first saw my first interview with Prabhu Chawla. He whatsapped me. Messaging and then talking to him, we became friends with the passage of time. This happened about a year-and-half back."
Rakhi Sawant also thanked Jesus that her dream to marry Ritesh has been fulfilled, "After knowing him, I prayed very hard to Jesus that I must become his wife. Woh khawish toh poori ho gayi (My this dream is now fulfilled). God has been kind to me so far."
