Devoleena Bhattacharjee has been living her best life since tying the knot with the man of her dreams, Shanwaz Shaikh. Their low-key court marriage came as a surprise to many. While some accused her groom of not spending enough money on her, others simply targeted his religion to bash the couple.
Since childhood, every girl dreams of how her marriage preparations should look like. Some want Bollywood-styled lavish parties, while others settle for intimate family gatherings. And for Devoleena and Shanwaz, it was a hush-hush marriage ceremony among family and close friends. In a recent interview with The Indian Express, the actress revealed that Shanwaz has his own name in the fitness industry, but if she had flaunted his money, people would have called her a gold digger. In her words:
“He’s not from the industry but he’s well settled. He has his own name in the fitness industry. If I would have made the marriage grand and flaunted his money, trolls would have called me a gold digger.”
Further, in the conversation, Devoleena shared how she never thought about what people would say before deciding on doing an intercaste marriage. She further said that the universe would help her grow if she is on the right path. She stated:
“Frankly speaking, I don’t think about how social media trolls would react when I am making any life decision. We both are more concerned about our happiness and future. I feel if we are good, the blessings from the universe, and help us grow and live together.”
A few days ago, Devoleena took to her IG handle and shared a beautiful video of her court marriage with her gym trainer, Shanwaz. In the video, she was dressed in a pretty red-hued saree paired with a full-sleeved sheer blouse. She also donned a red dupatta on her crown area, beautifully embedded with the blessing 'Sada Saubhagyawati Bhawa'. To accessorise her look, Devoleena wore diamond jewellery, ghungroo kaleeras and gold bangles. On the other hand, Shanwaz was seen clad in a black pantsuit. In the video, we saw the couple exchanging varmalaas with wide smile on their faces.

Earlier, in an interview with the ETimes, Devoleena had revealed why her honeymoon with her hubby has got postponed. She said it was because of her busy professional life and her pet, Angel that their vacation plans got delayed till the New Year. The actress mentioned that they were searching for places to take their pet along, as Shanwaz loves Angel more than he loves his wife.
