Mujse Shaadi Karoge contestant and actor Sanjjana Galrani is now married. The Kannada actor married a Bangalore based cardiovascular surgeon, Dr. Azeez Pasha. Reportedly, last year while she was under custody for Sandalwood Drug Case, her pictures wearing wedding lehenga went viral and many speculated she’s married, later the actor herself denied the rumours but claimed she’s engaged to Azeez.
Yesterday, on National Doctor’s Day, Sanjjana posted pictures with her husband and called herself doctor’s wife. However, netizens were left confused as they asked her when did she get married.
Now, talking to a news portal, Sanjjana shared, “We officially signed the documents in May last year. It was an intimate affair where only our family members were present. We were planning to have a big ceremony this year and make it official to the world. But it couldn’t happen because of the second wave. We didn’t try to keep our marriage a secret but didn’t feel the need to reveal it either.”
She added, “We did not opt for a grand celebration because of the ongoing pandemic. Instead I donated all my fixed deposits which I had kept for my wedding to the Kannada film industry technicians. They were in a very bad state. Azeez also supported my decision. I distributed ration kits with the money I had saved for my big fat wedding. I felt rather than making rich people eat biryani and booking five star hotel for them, it’s better to help people who are in need. Us ek plate biryani ke kharche mein logon ke paanch din ka khana aa gaya.”
Sanjjana also opened up about her viral picture in wedding attire, she said, “2018 I got converted to Islam, which was not marriage it was only conversion. I know him since I was 16, so taking a decision was not difficult for me.”
