Rahul Mahajan weds Dimpy Ganguly on reality TV


Mumbai, March 6 (IANS) Rahul Mahajan Saturday night exchanged wedding vows with Kolkata-based model Dimpy Ganguly on NDTV Imagine's reality TV show "Rahul Dulhaniya Le Jayega".

Dimpy had edged past 14 contestants from the show and over 16,500 applicants to be the bride of Rahul, who is the son of slain Bharatiya Janata Party leader Pramod Mahajan.

Rahul told Dimpy on the show: "In the audition tape you said that you fell in love with me when you were five years old. Sixteen years after your wait is over."

"People say you can die in love, but for me you are worth living for. I can say in front of the whole world that I love you," Rahul told Dimpy.

To which Dimpy replied: "I love you too."

Even before his 'swayamvar' began, Rahul had expressed a soft corner for Bengali women.

"Bengali women are bold and beautiful. They are good looking - they are a perfect combination of beauty and brains. Besides, Kolkata has a very rich culture. I would love to marry someone from Bengal," Rahul had said before the show had kickstarted at Udaipur's Fatehgrah Palace.

The wedding was a lavish affair at the Leela Kempinski Hotel here. Several celebrities graced the event to shower their blessings on the couple.
