The official Sameer’s father Jnanadev Wankhede’s announcement came after Nawab Malik on Wednesday released photographs of Sameer Wankhede’s 2006 wedding. At this point, Nawab Malik alleged that Sameer Wankhede was a Muslim and that he hid his name and got a job.
Nawab Malik was like Ravana
Gyandev Wankhede said Nawab Malik was an influential man. They have no shortage of money. He can do anything. Threatened our family. The Nawab said that Malik was like Ravana and that he had ten hands and a mouth. He can do anything.
I will file a defamation case
NCB official Sameer Wankhede said that if Nawab Malik was attacking our personal life, he would file a defamation suit and go to court. He said his son-in-law has been doing all this since he was arrested in a drugs case. He said again that I am a Hindu and my wife is a Muslim.
An FIR was registered against Nawab Malik
Sameer Wankhede’s wife Kranti Redkar said that by releasing our personal photos, Nawab Malik was acting contrary to the constitutional norm. We will take legal action and an FIR has been registered against them.
Has not legally converted
On the marriage of Sameer Wankhede issued by Nawab Malik, Kranti Redkar said that Nikhanama was real, but that Sameer Wankhede had not legally changed his caste or religion. There was only his mother’s desire behind writing the Muslim name in Nikhanama. It was a formality, he did for his mother’s pleasure.
