Pooja Batra had gotten married to an orthopedic surgeon, Dr Sonu S. Ahluwalia in Los Angeles, California in 2002. But due to irreconcilable differences, they had filed for divorce in 2011. But love came knocking the door of her heart once again when she had met Don 2 star, Nawab Shah. The couple had gotten married in a close-knit ceremony in Delhi as per the Arya Samaj rituals. Ever since their marriage, the two have been painting the town red with their love.
The gorgeous actress, Pooja turned 44 on October 27, 2020 and her doting husband, Nawab penned an adorable birthday wish for her. He took to his IG handle to share a twinning in black picture with his biwi and wrote, “You always shine like the sun and illuminate the lives of those around you, happy birthday my love... be as special as you are. Love you more everyday.”
In July 2019, Pooja and Nawab had secretly gotten married. In an interview with the Bombay Times, Pooja had talked about their wedding and had revealed, "Nawab and I exchanged vows in Delhi, with only our families in attendance. Our loved ones kept asking us why we were delaying it (the marriage). I was simply going with the flow, but then I realised that he is the man I want to spend the rest of my life with, and there is no point in delaying it any further. So, here we are. We had an Arya Samaj wedding, and we will register our marriage this week." (Also Read: Amitabh Bachchan's Grandson, Agastya Nanda Makes Quirky Instagram Debut, Suhana Khan And Navya React)
