Television actress Chahatt Khanna, who had tied the knot with businessman Farhan Mirza in 2013, filed for a divorce almost a month ago. The actress didn’t open up on the reason for her divorce initially, but now, Chahatt has spoken about it. In an interview with Bombay Times, the actress made some shocking revelations.
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.
Chahatt added that he even raised questions on her character and always kept an eye on her.
Farhan would always keep an eye on me. He even followed me from one room to another. I was not allowed to take both my kids together outside the house, as he knew that I would leave him. It was a solitary confinement of sorts. 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.
Chahatt and Farhan have two daughters, Zohar and Amaira.
