South actress Sanjjanaa Galrani who also participated in the controversial reality show Bigg Boss Kannada in the debut season and later turned contestant on Hindi reality show Mujhse Shaadi Karoge as a suitor to Bigg Boss 13 fame Paras Chhabra is married now. The actress tied the knot with Dr. Azeez Pasha, who is a cardiovascular surgeon based in Bengaluru.
Though her marital status grabbed a lot of attention after her arrest in the Sandalwood drug scandal last year. Sanjjanaa's photograph was doing rounds in which she was seen in festive attire that is similar to a wedding dress. However, after her custody, Sanjjanaa went on confessing that she is not married but did get engaged with Azeez.
Today Sanjjanaa took to her Instagram to share a long post about him on National's Doctor Day and called herself Doctor's wife. Well, this again created curosity to know if she is officially married him now and when did the ceremony take place.
Talking to SpotboyE.com exclusively, Sanjjanaa said, "We officially signed the documents in May last year. It was an intimate affair where only our family members were present. We were planing to have a big ceremony this year and make it official to the world. But it couldn't happen because of the second wave. We didn't try to keep our marriage a secret but didn't feel the need to reveal it either."
She also added, "We did not opt for a grand celebration because of the ongoing pandemic. Instead I donated all my fixed deposits which I had kept for my wedding to the Kannada film industry technicians. They were in a very bad state. Azeez also supported my decision. I distributed ration kits with the money I had saved for my big fat wedding. I felt rather than making rich people eat biryani and booking five star hotel for them, it's better to help people who are in need. Us ek plate biryani ke kharche mein logon ke paanch din ka khana aa gaya."
We did ask her about the viral wedding picture and she says, "2018 I got converted to Islam, that was not marriage it was only conversion. I know him since I was 16, so taking a decision was not difficult for me."
