Shalin Bhanot's ex-wife Dalljiet Kaur to tie the knot with US-based Nikhil Patel, reveals it was love for their children that connected them
Dalljiet and Shalin had tied the knot in December 2009 but parted ways in 2016. Dalljiet is headed for second marriage with Nikhil Patel, a US-based single father of two daughters.
Actress Dalljiet Kaur , the ex-wife of Bigg Boss 16 contestant Shalin Bhanot , has found love again. She got engaged to the US-based Nikhil Patel and planning to tie the knot in March this year. She revealed that she will move with her nine-year-old son Jaydon to London post-marriage. She also opened up about Shalin’s bond with Jaydon and how their meetings will be facilitated after the marriage.
For the unversed, Dalljiet and Shalin had tied the knot in December 2009 but parted ways in 2016. The actress accused Shalin of domestic violence, dowry harassment, and even an attempt to murder her. However, after a long legal battle, Shalin got a clean chit from the Bombay high court and was relieved of all charges that were put against him. Since then, the two maintain a cordial relationship with each other for their son Jaydon.
Talking about Shalin and Jaydon’s bond after her marriage, Dalljiet told Etimes, “Jaydon needs to have the most normal life and he can only have that if he has his people, including Shalin, around him. Shalin is more than welcome to meet Jaydon and I will bring him to India to meet him. Hamein iss bachhe ka sochna chahiye jiska koi lena dena nahi hai jo bhi jhagde hue ya nahi hue. Both of us need to step up as his parents and this is our chance. If Shalin gets married, I will be the one to introduce that girl to Jaydon,” she replied.
Elaborating about her love story with Nikhil, she said, “I met Nick at a friend’s party in Dubai last year. I only spoke about my son, and he was talking about his two daughters, 13-year-old Aariyana and eight-year-old Aanika. He wore blue nail polish on his toes, and when I asked him about it, he replied, ‘I am a proud dad of two girls.’ Romance wasn’t in the air back then; it was just two single parents chatting. Love happened with time. It was our love for our children that connected us. While Anika lives with her mother in the US, Aariyana will live with us.” On the professional front, Dalljiet has signed a couple of projects for which she will come to Mumbai from London.
