'Sara-Ali wedding against Islam'
Even though Sara's mother and sister denied that the pictures were from Sara and Ali's earlier nikaah, Sara's father has come out strongly against this wedding inside the Bigg Boss house and has even called it against the tenets of Islam.Updated: Nov 11, 2010 13:30 IST
Terming it against Islam, Sara's father has said that Sara and Ali got married a year back. The reason why they hid it from press was to protect their careers. Sara's father also reiterated that since Sara's grandmother had just passed away, it was wrong on the young couple's part to celebrate as they were still in mourning.
Recently unearthed photographs show Sara Khan and Ali Merchant signing the nikaah-nama in front of their family. Sara can be seen sitting next to her grandmother, who passed away, in one of the snap. The wedding took place exactly a year ago on November 10, 2009. So, technically today is their first wedding anniversary.
The big question now is, why the drama on Bigg Boss? Buzz is that Sara Khan and Ali Merchant were paid a whopping Rs 25 lakhs each to get married on television. Does this mean that the channel paid them to increase their TRP? Is Bigg Boss scripted as declared by Rahul Bhatt?
Interestingly, Sara Khan had publicly declared that she had no love for Ali Merchant and even tore his pictures. She even told Ashmit Patel that she truly loved him. Was that an affair outside her marriage?
Denying these reports, Sara's sister told Starnews, "These pictures are from the engagement ceremony. Why would she hide her marriage? Today, she is marrying in front of the world."
Defending her daughter's marriage inside the Bigg Boss house, Sara's mother said, "These pictures are from the engagement ceremony at Ali's place in Mumbai. We were all there."
But here's the twist. Sara's mother in the interview said that the engagement took place without a qazi but the pictures speak otherwise. Even the document which the two are seen signing reads nikaah-nama. So evidently, the two did marry last year.
Now, the question is if they're already married then why the drama? Was it for the money they were paid? Sara's mother concluded by saying, "Sara was not paid. Ali probably was."
