UPDATE – The show is on air now. Click here to read our latest post on the show Rahul Dulhania Le Jaayega with all the details and pics of the 15 women who love S & M and want to marry him! Plus some fresh goss from Udaipur.

Oops, it should be Swayam”vadhu”! Rahul Mahajan Ka Swayamvadhu!

Rahul MahajanBe scared. Very Scared. Rahul Mahajan is back on tv. And this time for his swayamvar. The show is titled Rahul Dulhania Le Jayenge! Imgine, just imagine! on NDTV Imagine.

The big question – Why would someone want to marry Rahul Mahajan ? I dont have an answer but have one more question. Why would anyone want to marry Rakhi Sawant ?

34 year old Rahul is son of late BJP leader Pramod Mahajan. And what else do we know about Rahul Mahajan  ? Let’s see.

Wife-beater –  He separated from his first wife Shweta Singh (pilot) within five months of his marriage. According to Shweta, he used to beat her.

Substance use – Just after his father’s death, he was found unconscious with his father’s secretary Vivek Moitra at his father’s official residence. Reason – drug overdose. Vivek  died, Rahul survived.

Bigg Boss Participant – Still not been able to crack this one. Why he participated in Bigg Boss ? Because mujhe apne pitaji ki izzat wapas laani hai ?  How ?

LOL – You have to hear it to belive it. He literally believes in LOL! The sound is most scary than anything you have heard. Its not his best but check it out if you havent heard it yet.

And if you missed Junior Mahajan’s priceless Bigg Boss moments on tv, have  a look.

Finally, we have two suggestions.

1. Since Rakhi Sawant is not getting married to Elesh Parujanwala, why cant Rakhi and Rahul marry ? Can bet that they are made for each other and they truly deserve each other.

2. Even if Rahul finds a Dulhania for himself, here is an idea for the next season. NDTV Imagine can start planning it right now – Mujhe Iss Rahul Se Bachao! For a change, we can see the future!
