Actor-turned politician and BJP leader Manoj Tiwari, who recently welcomed a baby girl, has opened up about tying the knot for the second time and revealed that it was his daughter Rhiti who convinced him for the same.
Manoj's eldest daughter Rhiti is from his first marriage with ex-wife Rani. They divorced in 2012. In April 2019, Tiwari tied the knot with Surabhi.
Talking about his lockdown wedding, Manoj told ETimes, "Surabhi and I got married in April during the lockdown. She used to look after my administrative work. Actually, she is a singer and has sung in one of my music videos. It was my daughter Rhiti who suggested Surabhi and I should tie the knot. She and Surabhi are very comfortable with each other."
When asked about his equation with his former wife Rani, the BJP leader said, "There are no kadvaahat; we are absolutely fine with each other. I was very tense when I separated from Rani in 2010 at her insistence... Zindagi kuch ajeeb si ho gayi thi uske baad."
In the same interview, he also revealed that his elder daughter Rhiti, who's flying to Delhi to be with Manoj and the new born, will name her half sister.
Manoj Tiwari’s new-born made it to the coronial babies list.
On Friday, Tiwari shared a picture of holding his daughter and wrote, “Mere ghar aayi ek nanhi pari…I am blessed with a baby girl…Jai Jagdambe.”
