The court marriage of actor Sanjay Dutt and Dilnasheen Amir Ahmad Sheikh alias Manyata will have legal validity only after their final signature on the wedding declaration, the civil marriage registration authorities said in Panaji on Monday.
Dutt and Manyata had submitted declaration of their marriage to Civil Registrar's Office on February seven in South Goa's Salcette taluka.
"They have filed declaration of marriage but the marriage will be legal only after their final signature on the declaration," Chandrakant Pissurlekar, Civil Registrar, Salcette, who accepted the declaration, told PTI.
The authorities stated that the two will have to sign on the declaration before 90 days. The civil registration rules in Goa make it mandatory that one amongst the couple has to be a local resident.
In this case, Manyata has submitted a declaration by a former government servant, who has certified that she was staying in his flat at Aquem, a suburban locality of South Goa's Margao city. According to sources, Dilnasheen would legally change her name to Manyata after the final signature.
