Trinamool Congress MP and actor Nusrat Jahan on Thursday gave birth to a baby boy at a private hospital in Kolkata. The birth of the baby, however, elicited special wishes from the actor-turned-politician’s estranged husband Nikhil Jain.
Nusrat was admitted to a private hospital in south Kolkata’s Park Street on Wednesday. A report by news agency PTI said that she gave birth to a baby boy at around 12.20 pm on Thursday.
Both the mother and the baby are reported to be doing fine and under the watchful eye of the doctors, the report added. Nusrat’s friend, also an actor, Yash Dasgupta was present at the hospital.
Reacting to the news, Nurat’s estranged husband Nikhil told Aaj Tak Bangla, “My differences with her, would not stop me from wishing well for the newborn. I wish well for her. May the baby be super healthy and have a prosperous future.”

In June this year, Nusrat had stunned everyone by formally announcing her separation from husband Nikhil Jain, who she had married in a lavish function in Turkey in 2019. In a hard-hitting statement, she had levelled serious charges of financial fraud against Jain even though she did not take his name. Nusrat had also threatened to file a police complaint as she alleged that money had been withdrawn from her bank accounts illegally and her jewellery usurped.
According to many reports, Nusrat’s growing friendship with Yash Dasgupta had led to her separation from Jain. Yash Dasgupta had driven Nusrat to the hospital on Wednesday.
