Armaan Malik’s name has also been mentioned in this report as Sandeep. According to the report, “A man climbed on the roof of a hotel in Delhi’s Hari Nagar area and started threatening to commit suicide. The name of the person is Sandeep alias, Armaan Malik. In a video, Armaan Malik said, “My wife Payal and her family filed a rape case against me.”

Apart from this, according to the report of hindi.oneindia.com, Armaan Malik is not a Muslim but a Hindu. The report states, “Now all the fans are guessing that Armaan Malik comes from a Muslim family, so he married twice. But that is not the case, Armaan Malik is a Hindu and his real name is Sandeep. Fans always considered Armaan a Muslim because of his dress. ”
It is clear from the fact check of DFRAC that Armaan Malik is not a Muslim but a Hindu and his real name is Sandeep. He married both his wives according to Hindu rituals. Therefore, the claim of social media users that Armaan Malik is a Muslim is wrong.
