Trinamool Congress MP and actress Nushrat Jahan on Thursday gave birth to her first child, a baby boy, at a private hospital in Kolkata’s Park Street. Both the mother and the child are doing well under the watchful eyes of doctors.
She was admitted to Bhagirathi Neotia Women and Child Care Centre on Wednesday night and delivered the baby on Thursday. She was taken to the hospital by her actor friend Yash Dasgupta, who fought the state elections on a BJP ticket from Chanditala Assembly constituency but lost it to TMC candidate Swati Khandoker by over 40,000 votes.
Meanwhile, Dasgupta confirmed that Nusrat and her baby are doing well. “For those who have been enquiring about Nusrat’s health, the mother and child are healthy and doing well,” he said. Several people from the Bengali film industry including Trinamool MP and actress Mimi Chakraborty congratulated Nushrat Jahan.

Marriage and separation Nushrat Jahan
Nusrat Jahan and Nikhil Jain tied the knot in Turkey in a private wedding ceremony on June 19, 2019, after dating for a while. Earlier this year, Nusrat revealed that her wedding with Nikhil was not valid under Indian laws in a statement. On June 9, Nusrat shared a seven-point statement where she alleged that her belongings, such as family jewellery and several other assets, have been “illegally held back”. She also alleged that her funds from various accounts were “mishandled” without her knowledge.
“These are legalities, I do not really want to comment on anything she has said because the matter is sub judice in court. I have filed a civil suit in Kolkata and I will not comment on it till it is in court,” Jain had said responding to allegations.
Following the birth of the child, Nikhil Jain said, “There might be differences between us, but I am wishing the newborn and his mother all the best. I wish the baby boy has a bright future.”
