Bade Acche Lagte Hain actress Chahatt Khanna who is currently living separately from her husband Farhan Mirza from some time has now accuses him of ‘sexual and mental abuse’.
“It was not just sexual abuse, I went through financial and mental abuse, too. The atmosphere in the house was driving me crazy. He would accuse me of prostitution and having an affair with a co-actor. He would make surprise visits on the set of my show (Qubool Hai) and create a fuss when I had to hug or even hold hands with my co-actor on screen. Once, he threw a fit after I received an invite for the same co-actor’s housewarming party; he concluded that I was dating him.” she said.
She further said, “Every second day, I was slut-shamed. In fact, he even accused me of dating his own brother. During both my pregnancies, he would ask me if the babies were his. A day before and four days after the delivery of my second baby, he dragged me out of the house and asked me to leave. He also used to manhandle me during fights. My second pregnancy was difficult; the baby’s weight was not normal, as I was almost starving. There was hardly any money at home and I had to be extremely selective about buying even food items. I have even sold my clothes online to survive that phase. He would threaten to commit suicide all the time, even at my parents’ home. That’s also the reason why I couldn’t leave him, as I was scared. Initially, I feared being judged for the failure of my second marriage, as I was previously married to businessman Bharat Narsinghani.”
Chahatt Khanna accuses husband Farhan Mirza
Chahatt reacted to the allegations of her being missing with kids and shared, “I was in touch with his family and friends, and he was aware of our whereabouts. So, how can he claim that we were untraceable? After staying in a hotel in Mumbai for a couple of days, we moved to Lucknow. Initially, I stayed at my lawyer’s house, as he considers me his sister, and a few days later, I moved to another place. Within three to four days, I informed Farhan that I was in Lucknow. My family and I avoided his calls for a couple of days, because otherwise, I wouldn’t have been able to get away from him. I stayed in Lucknow for a month-and-a-half and would often make video calls to him, to make him speak with our daughters”.
Chahatt tied the knot with businessman Farhan Mirza, on February 8, 2013. She has two baby daughters Zohar and Amaira.
This is the second marriage of Chahatt. Before Farhan, she was earlier married to Bharat Narsinghani in December 2006, but got divorced after several months due to physical abuse.
