Rinke Khanna Marriage: The Lesser Known Wedlock

The family of India’s first superstar Rajesh Khanna has always been under a perpetual limelight, and they never seem to have been coy about it. Be it his wife Dimple Kapadia or daughter Twinkle Khanna and her husband Akshay Kumar. But there is one individual from the Khanna family who made a brief appearance on the movie screens and then disappeared into obscurity as expeditiously as she had appeared. This is the youngest daughter of Dimple and Rajesh, which is Rinke Khanna. Rinke made her film début 17 years ago and was active in the Hindi film industry for a mere 4 years. Her marriage entailed the end of her movie career; and this is her story, a short adventure that found a peaceful end, the Sameer Saran Rinke Khanna marriage.

Rinke’s original name was in the tradition of names ending with ‘LE’ which seemed quite prevalent in the maternal side of her family. Rinke’s mother was Dimple (who had a sister named Simple), her sister was Twinkle, and no surprise she originally had a ‘LE’ in her name as well, making her real name as Rinkle. Before her début on the big screen, Rinke had done her graduation in Communications from the University of Massachusetts. She had then returned to India and made a foray into acting through stage plays in English and Hindi. Eventually, it was in the year 1999 that Rinke finally made her Bollywood début at the age of 22. To make her name seem more colloquial, she dropped the ‘L’ from it and changed her name to Rinke, which is how she is known even today.

Rinke’s Bollywood career spanned four years in which she did nine films. Her last film was in the year 2003 and it was in this year that she tied the knot with an industrialist called Sameer Saran. Not much is known about the couple’s first meeting and it is even ambiguous whether it was a love or arranged marriage. The Sameer Saran Rinke Khanna marriage happened in February 2003; it was a traditional Indian wedding ceremony, complete with sangeet and pheras. Rinke wore a pink traditional bridal saree with the quintessential Punjabi bridal ornament, kaliren, while Sameer looked dapper in a white sherwani and off white turban. Rinke even shook a leg during the sangeet ceremony. With her wedding complete, Rinke took the resolute decision to quit acting and focus on her marital life instead. It is believed that the newly-weds moved to Kolkata which is where they reside currently. In October 2004, the couple had a daughter and were blessed with their second child, a son, in October 2013.

While sister Twinkle and brother-in-law have been the permanent fixtures of the tinsel town, Rinke and Sameer have effectively stayed away from the media and public attention.

She is also believed to be busy with her work as an editor for an upcoming youth magazine. Eventually, one realises by learning more about the Sameer Saran Rinke Khanna marriage, that life can really be tranquil when you focus on having some good family life rather than play gimmicks in the public eye to gain popularity.
