In the last few weeks, the only chatter in political circles of Pakistan has been regarding former cricketer and politician Imran Khan’s ex-wife Reham Khan’s explosive autobiography. Imran, who is vying to be the next Prime Minister of the country, has been painted rather poorly (that’s an understatement) in the book, some chapters of which were leaked in the media.
Now, more shocking details have emerged and this time, it’s about Imran’s affair with a legendary leading actress of the 70s. The way the descriptions are provided, it is not a matter of guess who this beauty was. However, Reham has been careful enough to not name the star though she has given enough hints.
Here is what she has written. The account is shocking to say the least.
“Considered to be one of the sexiest heroines of all time, there had been rumours of Imran and her,” writes Reham Khan. “We had heard these whilst we were growing up. Imran confirmed to me that they were true. Though Imran was happy to sexually engage with actresses, he and the family clearly thought little of them. He recalled with a smile how his mother had been called by the newspapers, asking about the actress. She had replied, ‘My son would never marry a prostitute!’ and slammed the phone down.”
“Imran’s stories always painted the women in an unflattering light. He told me how he met her in Bombay, had his fill, and moved on. But, according to Imran, the lady followed him to London and became clingy. Imran said she scared him because she would ask to be slapped around during sex. Apparently, she was used to this kind of violence. Her boyfriend at the time had reportedly hit her in front of his guests at a party in a hotel, and so badly that her eye was left with permanent damage. I would check both these stories with a film producer friend of hers months later, who told me that it was actually Imran who had chased her, and that she had been very financially benevolent towards him. The sexy bombshell of the 70s had described the interaction with our mutual friend rather disparagingly (in her filmy words) as, ‘Naam baray aur darshan chotay’ (the hype was bigger than the rather small package on offer).”
Can you guess who we are talking about? Yes, your guess is as good as ours.
