The famous daily Soap of Ekta Kapoor Bade Acche Lagte Hai actress Chahath Khanna has been in the news for quite some time now for troubles in her marriage with Farhan Mirza.


Actress Chahath Khanna made shocking allegations of sexual harassment on her husband Farhan last year.

She revealed, "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-actors housewarming party; he concluded that I was dating him."

She adds, "When the pain didn't alleviate the following day, I pleaded with him to take me to the doctor. However, without showing any concern for my health woes, he told me that he wanted to have sex with me and made sure that he did. That's when I felt that he wouldn't care even if I died. But I had to live and be fine for my daughters. Then, I started finding out more about domestic violence. Since he would skim through my phone and internet history, he got to know about it and became alert."

Chahath Khanna says that Farhan once tried to procure a bank loan using her name. “He even sold my car and jewelry for money,” she alleges, adding, “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. It was not easy for me to get out of the house. I somehow sneaked out, taking some essentials with me,” she claims.

The actress says that her estranged husband tried every trick to separate her from her parents. She alleges, “He brainwashed my parents and moved them to Haldwani, Nainital. Once they left Mumbai, he stopped taking their calls, but fortunately, they returned for me. No parents would tell their daughter, especially when she is married for the second time with two kids, to leave her husband. My parents did that to save me. My mom told me to run away from him because he wouldn’t let me leave him. No mother in the world would say that.”

Farhan also shared in the interview, “I told her, ‘No matter what you have done, I have forgiven you for it. I love you and I love my children, so please just come home.’ I did tell her that I wasn’t willing to go to the media and discuss what happened between us. But her sudden disappearance with my children and summons on me and my mother forced me to do that. I haven’t defamed her. In fact, she has defamed me by calling me her ex-husband, estranged husband, divorced husband when we are still very much married. So, all this provoked me to go and clear the fact that we are not divorced or separated.”

She was quoted as saying, “I think it is too early to comment on it. I shall comment on it when the time is right. I am glad you called me up rather than just writing about it. I request the media to give me the much-deserved privacy.”

Later revealing that they have separated and she is filing for the divorce, Chahatt Khanna stated, “It’s my personal life and I don’t need to give clarification to any other than my family, but yes it’s true, its been some weeks we have separated and filing for a divorce, reasons are too personal to be disclosed. I request fans and people to respect our privacy (sic).”


Chahath Khanna has two daughters and she keeps posting pictures of her daughter on Instagram for her fans. Though she had been away from the limelight now she is back with Sanjay Dutt’s Prasthanam. Chahath will be playing the character of Ali Fazal’s sister.

Recently, Chahath opened up with an entertainment portal about her failed marriage and how she is taking care of her daughters as a single parent.


Chahath explained, “It's easy to get married but difficult to get divorced. It will take me another four to five years [to find my feet]. It is difficult because when you introduce yourself as a single mother in society, a lot of people want to take advantage of your vulnerability. I had co-actors walk up to me and say, 'If you were single, I would have married you'. Or 'Life is over for you because you won't find love again' and so on. Several suggested that I settle abroad as life would be easier there. I want to be happy, so I'm not getting married again for sure, but why should I leave my home?”

She added, “I feel conscious walking in public because I can feel all eyes on me; people call me names and advise others to avoid me. I am getting [professional] help to get me through this. I don't believe in the stigma attached to visiting a shrink. It is something people must do regularly.”

Speaking about working with Sanjay Dutt in Prasthanam, Chahath Khanna said, “This is my fourth film. Sanjay is a fun-loving person, although I don't have too many scenes with him. Most of my scenes are with Ali Fazal, who plays my brother in the family drama. The fame that television roles bring you is way beyond what a film can give you. You become a household face with TV.”
