(Scroll down for video) A Hindu man who married a Muslim woman, said that he is leaving his entire fortune to his pet monkey after his family shunned him for marrying outside his faith.

Brajesh and Shabista Srivastava of Uttar Pradesh, were alone for many years before the adopted their pet monkey Chunmun.

They decided to raise the monkey as a child since they do not have any children. The couple said that both their families rejected them after their marriage because they married outside of their faiths.

They adopted Chunmun when it was just one month old after its mother was electrocuted. Chunmun is being fed a diet of milk, fruit and homemade meals.

Its room even has air conditioning to keep cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Several years ago, the couple hosted a lavish wedding for Chunmun, as it married a female monkey named Bitti Yadav.

The two monkeys live together in the couple’s house, and have a party for their wedding anniversary each year. Srivastava said that his business exploded since adopting the monkey.

Now, they have decided to leave their entire fortune to their monkey instead of leaving it to the family members who have shunned them.
