Ex-‘Bigg Boss’ contestant Bobby Darling seeks divorce from husband
Ex-‘Bigg Boss‘ contestant Bobby Darling had tied the knot in 2016 with a Bhopal-based businessman – Ramneek Sharma. Bobby who had dated Ramneek for two years before tying the knot has reportedly filed for divorce on the basis of cruelty. Bobby had undergone sex-change surgery in 2015. Now, her husband has questioned the validity of their marriage under the Hindu Marriage Act.
As per a report in TOI, Bobby has sought dissolution of her marriage at a family court in Bandra. The films and television personality has also sought cancellation of a gift deed of a flat in Oshiwara and Rs 2 crore alimony. The plea is also for ownership declaration of a Bhopal property, on the grounds that it was allegedly purchased with her “hard earned money” but in joint names under pressure during an abusive marriage.
However, advocate G J Ramchandani (representing the husband claimed) that the marriage itself is “void” under the Hindu Marriage Act.
He said, “According to the Hindu Marriage Act 1955, the marriage takes place between the groom and the bride. Marriage takes place between a male and a female and not between a transgender, who converts into a woman, and a man. She did not disclose about her sex reassignment surgery to the marriage registrar. The marriage is null and void under the provisions of the Hindu Marriage Act.”
The court has set March 5 as the next date of hearing. Bobby had (in 2017) filed a case against her husband citing domestic abuse and unnatural sex after which her husband was arrested in 2018.
Bobby is known for her work in ‘Chalte Chalte’ and ‘Fashion’, and TV shows like ‘Kasautii Zindagii Kay’, ‘Kyunki Saas Bahu Kabhi Bahu Thi’ and many others.
