Mumbai: Former Bigg Boss contestant Rahul Mahajan, 43, tied the knot with Kazakhstan model Natalya Ilina, 25, on Tuesday, November 20 in a private ceremony. The wedding was a close-knit affair, and took place in a temple in Malabar Hills in Mumbai. It was attended by close family and friends.
Rahul spoke about his private wedding to Natalya Ilina with Mumbai Mirror and said, “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,” he adds.
The 43-year-old Bigg Boss contestant is 18 years elder to Natalya Ilina. But the age difference doesn’t matter to him as he feels they look good together. Rahul and Natalya have known each other for a year and a half.
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.
