What is happening in Bollywood? While we are still not able to digest yesterday’s rumors about Ash and Abhi’s assumed separation, the latest news doing the rounds is that Rahul Mahajan and Dimpy have filed for divorce by mutual consent.
For those unaware, Rahul and Dimpy became the first couple in India to tie the knot on a reality TV show, ‘Rahul Dulhaniya Le Jayega’, back in 2010. The duo met on a reality show titled ‘Swayamvar’, where Rahul was wooed by contestants, and Dimpy being one of them, won his heart.
Well, coming back to the divorce news, the couple will have to serve a mandatory counseling period of six months before the divorce is granted. Apparently, both, Rahul and Dimpy have pleaded the court to waive off the cooling off period, as Dimpy is likely to go abroad in the near future. But the Family Court Judge IM Bohari rejected their plea on Thursday.
The actual reason of their decision is unknown and neither of them are ready to talk about it. This will mark Rahul’s second divorce, first being with his childhood sweetheart Shweta.
Within four months of Rahul and Dimpy’s wedding, the latter had told in an interview that Rahul physically abused her. He “punched and kicked her and dragged her by the hair.” Dimpy had also moved out from his home for a brief period.
