Bengali actress and newly-elected MP Nusrat Jahan ties the knot with Nikhil Jain

Bengali actress and newly-elected MP Nusrat Jahan looked every bit the conventional bride in a red designer lehenga as she tied the knot with her businessman fiancé Nikhil Jain in the scenic Turkish town of Bodrum.

Nusrat Jahan, 29, predominantly works in Bengali cinema. She joined active politics in 2019 and contested from Basirhat as a Trinamool Congress candidate. Jahan’s screen debut was in Raj Chakraborty’s Shotru. She then appeared in the film Khoka 420, under the banner Eskay Movies. Her other notable movies include Khiladi, with Ankush Hazra, Sondhe Namar Agey, with Rahul Bose and Power, with Jeet under the banner of Shree Venkatesh Films. She won the title of “Fair One Miss Kolkata” 2010. She is an elected Member of Parliament of Basirhat.

The marriage took place late on Wednesday at the Six Place Kapalankya, a leisure resort located in Milas, 84 km from Bodrum.

Sharing a photograph from her wedding in which the couple is seen walking hand-in-hand with the picturesque Aegean Sea in the background, Nusrat wrote on Instagram: “Towards a happily ever after with Nikhil Jain.”

In her Instagram stories, she posted a close up hand-in-hand shot, and captioned it: “Never will we let go… Can’t thank you enough.”

Bengali actress and Jadavpur MP Mimi Chakraborty, who is one of Nusrat’s friends from the industry, was also a part of the gala wedding. She wore a bright pink lehenga and was seen blowing a kiss to the bride as she walked the aisle.

Both the actresses who recently became MPs couldn’t take their oath in Lok Sabha because of Jahan’s wedding.

Nusrat looked resplendent in the red Sabyasachi Mukherjee lehenga, and the groom chose an ivory ensemble by the same designer for the D-day.

Wedding planning firm Weddings by ESL managed the intimate affair in Bodrum, Turkey.

Ekta Saigal Lulla said in a statement that the idea was to “treat Nusrat and Nikhil to a day that’ll be etched in their memories, forever”.

Before leaving for the destination wedding, which was only attended by the bride and groom’s close family members and friends, there was a Haldi ceremony held in Kolkata.

The pre-wedding functions included a Yacht Party, Bohemian themed Mehendi Party, Sun Kissed Party which happened on Monday and Tuesday in Bodrum.

The newly-wed couple has planned a gala reception ceremony at a star property in Kolkata on July 4.

A large number of Bengali film personalities and political leaders are expected to attend the reception.

Nusrat, 29, was working as the face of Jain’s textile chain when they got acquainted last year.

Jain is a former student of MP Birla Foundation Higher Secondary School. After studying management at the University of Warwick, he worked as a consultant in a UK-based multinational company.
