In a happy ending to a bitter spat, Bollywood singer Udit Narayan on Friday accepted Ranjana Jha, whom he had earlier refused to acknowledge as his spouse, as his wife. Narayan turned up before the Bihar Women's Commission along with his counsel Majid Memon and accepted Ranjana as his wife. Both Narayan and Ranjana signed a document in the presence of their lawyers and Commission chairperson Manju Prakash, accepting each other as 'man and wife'.
Prakash said it was a "working arrangement" under which Deepa Narayan, Udit's another wife, and son's status will remain unchanged but Ranjana would also be accorded the status of the singer's wife. She said this agreement was reached with the consent of Ranjana.
