Bade Acche Lagte Hain actress Chahat Khanna has recently accused her ex-husband Farhan Mirza of sexual abuse. In an interview with Bombay Times, Chahat revealed that Farhan has not only abused her sexually but mentally as well. Apparently, Farhan had told Spotboye that Chahat has disappeared with their kids and he couldn’t get in touch with them for over three days. On this, Chahat recently opened up about all his misdeeds.
In an interview, Chahat revealed, “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.”
Speaking about mental abuse, the actress added, “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.”
Chahat also accused him of physical abuse during and after pregnancy saying, “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. 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.”
For those who are uninitiated, Farhan is a second husband of Chahat. She was first married to businessman Bharat Narsinghani, but the marriage didn’t last long. While concluding about unsuccessful married life, she said, “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.”
