This is Why Dimpy Ganguly conducted Loyalty test on her husband Rahul Mahajan

Just two months after her marriage to Rahul Mahajan on national television, Dimpy Ganguly is bringing their private life back on the small screen. She tests her husband on a TV show to prove to the world that he is loyal.

Mrs. Mahajan has long heard about Rahul’s alleged philandering ways. She wants her hubby to be ridded of the Casanova tag, thus she approaches the team of emotional atyachar.

Picture of Rahul Mahajan from the show Emotional Athyachar

"I didn't conduct this test because I had any doubt on Rahul. It's just because ever since we have got married, many people have asked me, 'if he is trustworthy, do I find him dependable and why I married him despite his reputation?'. So this was done to shut them up, " Dimpy, 21, said.

The episode featuring flamboyant Rahul trapped between two females will be aired Friday 11 p.m.

"Rahul is the most loving and caring husband and extremely dependable. Now all those people who doubted his integrity can see for themselves, " she said.

Dimpy had pipped 14 contestants and over 16, 500 applicants on Imagine TV's "Rahul Dulhania Le Jaayega" to marry Rahul, son of late Bharatiya Janata Party leader Pramod Mahajan.

The young model is enjoying every bit of her married life and says she wants to "take it easy" on the professional front.

"This is our courtship period since we didn't get too much time alone before we get married. We're still exploring new things about each other and want to enjoy this time. So I want to take my time to (start) work, " she said.

Nikunj Mallik introduces Rahul to Priyanka Nandi - an EAT (Emotional Atyachar team) agent
Dimpy’s swayamvar competitor Nikunj Mallik is also present in the spy act. It so happens that Rahul Mahajan and Nikunj Mallik bump into each other at pool side of a hotel. After a brief interaction, Mallik introduces Rahul to Priyanka Nandi - an EAT (Emotional Atyachar team) agent.

Nikunj refused to divulge details but said she wasn't aware that the episode will have Rahul being spied upon by Dimpy. She said, "When they approached me for the show, I hadn't a clue that the show will feature them. It was too late by the time I came to know about them and I had already given my consent to the channel."

So does she think Rahul is a changed guy now? "I am of the opinion people don't change. Besides, no guy will stray in a month-old marriage!"

According to some media reports Mallik refused to comment further and only added, “I’m under a contract with the channel. I’m not authorised to speak on it. You’ll have to watch the episode to see the truth.”

The show had earlier embarrassed Raja Chaudhary after his infidelity cost him his relationship with fiancé Shraddha Sharma.

Shoaib and Sania left the venue of the walima (reception hosted by the groom's family), the Pearl Continental Hotel, much earlier after some guests began acting in an unruly manner, sources said.

The event was better organised than another reception held for the couple in the cricketer's hometown of Sialkot on April 25.

Sania, wearing a flowing gown, and Shoaib, clad in a dark suit, waved to television cameras and fans as they entered the venue of the walima with their relatives.

Only two former Test cricketers — Wasim Bari and Aamir Sohail — attended the ceremony.

Mr. Bari was the head of an inquiry committee that announced stiff punishment for seven cricketers, including Shoaib, for on-and-off field problems.

An invitation was reportedly sent to Pakistan Cricket Board chief Ijaz Butt, but he preferred not to attend, the sources said.

PCB chief invited

Punjab Governor Salmaan Taser, Prime Minister Yusuf Raza Gilani's son Abdul Qadir, Federal Sports Minister Aijaz Jakhrani and Population Welfare Minister Firdous Aashiq Awan were among the high-profile guest who attended the event.

“Marriage diplomacy”

Speaking on the occasion, Ms. Awan said such “marriage diplomacy” would improve people-to-people contacts between Pakistan and India.

She hoped this relationship would melt the ice between the two countries.

Mr. Jakhrani congratulated the couple and prayed for their success.

Fair chance to prove innocence

He said Shoaib would be given a fair chance in an inquiry to prove his innocence.

Shoaib and other top Pakistani cricketers punished by the cricket board had filed appeals with an appellant tribunal that will begin its hearing on Friday.

Shoaib's brother-in-law Imran Zafar was conspicuous by his absence at the walima. The brother-in-law was blamed for the mismanagement of the reception in Sialkot.

In accordance with the rules of the Punjab government that banned the serving of more than one dish at wedding functions, guests were served a chicken korma with rice and naans and a dessert.

A private channel ‘Duniya’ reported that tennis star Sania’s family, which had arrived from India for the celebrations, left for Lahore early as they were upset at the mismanagement at the function. Eyewitnesses at the function said Shoaib and Sania, who were sitting on the stage and greeting the guests, also left before the function ended. “There is no reason known why they left but apparently there were problems when the younger brother-in-law of Malik, Adnan was stopped at the main entrance by security guards from entering the function,” one eye witness said. Eyewitnesses said hundreds of people showed up for the reception many of whom were not invited and without invitation cards. “This led to a huge rush at the main entrance and it made life difficult for the security personnel as well to control the situation,” he said. He said there were reports that invitation cards for the wedding reception had been sold by some people for between Rs 5000 to Rs 10,000. To make matters worse, the power corporation officials insisted that no extra lighting would be allowed at the reception.
