Delnaaz met TV actor, Rajeev Paul on the sets of Parivartan, a popular soap in 1993. The couple later married but got separated in 2010 after 14 years of marriage and got divorced in 2012. Delnaaz cited infidelity on Rajeev's part as the cause for the divorce, however, Rajeev denied the allegation. "We had decided never to go public with what had transpired behind closed doors. But now, I guess I need to speak up. In her interview, she (Delnaaz) hinted at me not being a faithful husband. But I never cheated on Delnaaz", Rajeev said. He did, however, blame himself for the divorce stating "Honestly, it all began when my career was going through a rough patch. I was depressed and even contemplated suicide." The two were participants on the reality TV series Bigg Boss 6.
