Who is Nusrat Jahan?

Nusrat Jahan is a popular Bengali film actress and has been a part of quite a number of controversies in the recent past. Being the All-India Trinamool Congress's Member of Parliament, the actress was named in the controversy related to the Park Street rape case. She was allegedly linked up with the accused, however, she had denied all the allegations against her.

In 2019, the 'Asur' actress married to businessman Nikhil Jain in a star-studded wedding ceremony in Turkey. However, in 2021 she denied marrying him and stated that they were merely in a 'live-in' relationship creating a lot of controversy around it.

Yash-Nusrat controversy

Soon after the incident, Nusrat Jahan had announced her pregnancy but didn't disclose the name of the biological father of the son. Later, the birth certificate of the newborn reflected the Bengali superstar and her rumoured boyfriend Yash Dasgupta as the father of the child. Following which the actress accepted her relationship in public. Thus, with all these controversies, the actor-politician can be an interesting candidate for the upcoming season of the show.
