'Bigg Boss 8': Will Dimpy Reconcile with Estranged Husband Rahul Mahajan?Twitter/DimpyMahajan

TV personalities Rahul Mahajan and Dimpy Ganguly have legally ended their marriage on 26 February.

Rahul took to Twitter to announce their divorce and clarify that from now onwards he and Dimpy are just 'friends'.

Rahul and Dimpy, who got married on a reality show "Rahul Dulhaniya Le Jayega", had filed for a divorce on mutual grounds last May.

Dimpy, soon after the marriage in 2010, had accused Rahul of domestic violence, but later reconciled when he apologised.

But last year, Dimpy filed for divorce and requested for immediate legal separation as she wanted to move abroad. But their request got dismissed and the duo had to follow the legal procedure of six months counselling period.

However, during this period, they appeared on the most watched reality show "Bigg Boss Halla Bol", where fans and well-wishers hoped that the estranged couple reconcile and get back together. On some of the episodes, they were even seen getting emotional. But both Rahul and Dimpy maintained that they share a cordial relationship through the show.

This was Rahul's second marriage. He was earlier married to his childhood sweetheart Shweta Singh in 2006. But the duo got divorced in 2008, when Shweta complained of domestic violence.

After Rahul announced their legal separation, good friend Vindu Dara Singh also tweeted: "Congrats to you both for this new journey and proud of the way you will keep the friendship and no hatred."
