Rahul Mahajan's newlywed wife Dimpy Ganguly, whom he married on a highly watched and much talked about reality show, wants her husband to pursue a political career like his father, late Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Pramod Mahajan, rather than be in show business.
"I really want him (Rahul) to pursue a political career," Dimpy told reporters in Mumbai on Saturday night after exchanging wedding vows with Rahul on Imagine TV's Rahul Dulhaniya Le Jayega.
To this, 35-year-old Rahul said: "I'll first manage my home and once that is settled, I'll manage the country."
Rahul has earlier participated in reality show "Bigg Boss" too.
Dimpy, 21, is a model and actress by profession. She piped other finalists Nikunj Malik, 25 and Harpreet, 21, apart from over 16,500 applicants from across the country to be Rahul's wife. And the Bengali lass says she will continue to work after marriage as well.
"Rahul doesn't want me to be a housewife. So I'll work. But I don't know yet what I will be doing," said Dimpy, who was sporting a red wedding outfit designed by Neeta Lulla, the traditional 'mangal sutra' in her neck and vermillion on her forehead.
Rahul had vowed to marry a girl on national TV and he kept his promise by doing so with the Kolkata-based girl, despite the recent death of his uncle Praveen Mahajan, who was convicted for killing his politician father Pramod Mahajan in 2006.
The duo will be registering their marriage on Tuesday in Bandra, Mumbai.
Rahul's mother Rekha Mahajan was present during the lavish wedding and blessed the couple. His father's photograph was also placed at the marriage venue.
Dimpy's family members as well as several TV celebrities attended the glitzy event at the Leela Kempinski Hotel in Mumbai.
