Shalin Bhanot’s ex-wife Dalljiet Kaur gets engaged to UK-based Nikhil Patel, to move to London with son after marriage
Bigg Boss 16 contestant Shalin Bhanot’s former wife Dalljiet Kaur has found love again in UK-based Nikhil Patel, who works with a finance company. The two got engaged on January 3 in Nepal and will tie the knot in March this year, after which Dalljiet will move to London with her son Jaydon.
Sharing details about her wedding, Dalljiet told an online portal, “The wedding is in March, and I am still figuring out a lot of things. I will move to Nairobi (Africa) for a couple of years, as Nikhil is placed there for work right now. We will eventually move back to London, where he was born and raised.”

However, Dalljiet clarified that even though she and Jaydon will move to London, she will still bring her son to India to meet his father, Shalin and said, “Jaydon needs to have the most normal life and he can only have that if he has his people, including Shalin, around him. Shalin is more than welcome to meet Jaydon and I will bring him to India to meet him. He should know that his father loves him. Hamein iss bachhe ka sochna chahiye jiska koi lena dena nahi hai jo bhi jhagde hue ya nahi hue. Both of us need to step up as his parents and this is our chance. If Shalin gets married, I will be the one to introduce that girl to Jaydon.”
The actress revealed that what connected them was their love for children. They met for the first time in Dubai at a mutual friend’s party. She said, “I only spoke about my son, and he was talking about his two daughters, 13-year-old Aariyana and eight-year-old Aanika. He wore blue nail polish on his toes, and when I asked him about it, he replied, ‘I am a proud dad of two girls.’ Romance wasn’t in the air back then; it was just two single parents chatting. Love happened with time. It was our love for our children that connected us. While Anika lives with her mother in the US, Aariyana will live with us.”
Dalljiet was previously married to Shalin who is currently a contestant in Bigg Boss 16. The two tied the knot in December 2009 but separated in 2016. Shalin was accused of domestic violence, dowry harassment and even attempt to murder Dalljiet but later on he was given a clean chit by the Bombay High Court. The two actors are now civil and cordial towards each other following their divorce.
