Nikhil Madhok, VP, Marketing and Communication NDTV Imagine says "Rahul, son of slain BJP leader Pramod Mahajan has asked for kundalis of all the 16 finalists to be matched with him so that there are no complications later while he chooses one of te as his better-half. Rahul has even got the launch date of his show, Rahul Dulhaniya Le Jaayega postponed in order to schedule the final on an auspicious date as fixed by his astrologer," added the channel official.
But Nikhil got defensive when asked whether Rahul would also do a Rakhi Sawant and go back on the wedding promise. "Rakhi too wanted to get married to Elesh, but as you saw on Pati Patni aur Woh, differences arose between the couple. Rahul is a different person and he will surely follow his heart." He also tried to justify having such colorful personalities on the show by saying no other "single" celeb is willing to get married on national television as the format demands".
Let us hope that Rahul at least for the sake of Imagine, does find his Dulhaniya, else the channel will face a lot of embarrassing questions, a second time around.
