Lawyer And Ex 'BB' Contestant, Sana Raees Khan Tags Armaan Malik-Kritika Malik's Marriage 'Illegal'

Armaan Malik’s interpersonal dynamics with his two wives, Payal Malik and Kritika Malik became a hot topic of debate on the internet, ever since the trio participated in Bigg Boss OTT 3.While the YouTuber’s first wife, Payal got evicted within the first week itself, Armaan and Kritika continue to be a part of the show. While polygamy is prohibited as per the Hindu laws of our country, Armaan having two wives has been a matter of query among both the viewers and critics. And recently, a lawyer shared her two cents on the matter.

Sana Raees Khan comments on Armaan Malik’s two marriages under the Hindu Marriage Act

In a recent interaction with the Indian Express, Sana Raees Khan, a former Bigg Boss contestant and a recognised lawyer by profession, commented on the polygamous marriage of Armaan Malik with his two wives, Payal and Kritika. While the trio have already shared their clear understanding on the matter quite a few times, Sana, spoke through the lens of the Hindu Marriage Act of 1955 and stated that Armaan’s second marriage is considered illegal under the law. In her words:

“In India, under the Hindu Marriage Act, 1955, a Hindu man can legally have only one wife at a time. Polygamy is not permitted for Hindu individuals. Therefore, a second marriage would be considered illegal and not recognized under Indian law.”

Sana reacts to the impact of Armaan’s two marriages on the Hindu culture

Sharing more of her views on the matter, Sana Raees Khan revealed how the portrayal of a Hindu husband with two wives on a reality show leads to confusion among the people, since polygamy is prohibited in our country as per the law. Moreover, she also cited how such visualisations may lead to stereotypes about the legality of marriages in the socie. She said:

“The portrayal of a Hindu husband with two wives on a reality show can create confusion about the legality of polygamy under Hindu law, as polygamy is not legally recognized in India for Hindus. This might lead to misunderstandings among viewers about the norms governing marriages in Hinduism. It could perpetuate stereotypes or misconceptions about Hindu practices and beliefs regarding marriage.”


When Payal Malik claimed she is the only legal wife of Armaan Malik

Payal revealed Kritika and Armaan’s marriage is illegal

In the same conversation, Payal remarked boldly that her husband, Armaan Malik’s second marriage with Kritika is illegal. She then quoted the Hindu Marriage Act and revealed that if the first wife doesn’t have an objection to her husband’s second marriage, then it is not considered illegal. She said:

“Kritika and Armaan ji's marriage is not legal. However, from what I know, if the first wife doesn't have an issue with her husband marrying again, it's not an issue.”
