Saath Nibhana Saathiya actress Devoleena Bhattacharjee recently tied the knot with her boyfriend and gym trainer Shahnawaz Sheikh. And ever since her marriage the actress has been trolled for various reasons be it her Muslim husband or her intimate yet low-key wedding. Addressing the same the actress finally decided to address the issue of her low-profile wedding.
Talking about her “intimate wedding” Devoleena stated that she doesn’t want to “Waste money” and that she has no intention of showing off to prove that she has money. Talking about the same Devoleena told Zoom, “I feel that with a celebrity tag comes the responsibility to guide the society. We are said to have power to set trends and grand wedding is all about waste of money. I feel so… sab dikhawa (it is all show-off). I didn’t feel the need to show that I have money, I can make things royal. All I feel is my husband and I, or our parents have really work hard to earn that money, so we need to invest in something worthy.”
Devoleena further added, “I run an NGO that looks after old individuals. I would love to invest that money on such people in need and make society a happy place.. And I want the youth to understand that showing off, and wasting money just to make ‘the day’ look big is a dumb thought.. ‘The day’ is big when you achieve the blessings of your family, company of your friends while you marry the perfect soul. And yes, we performed every ritual and had fun,”
