Pakistani actress Meera has 'marriage' troubles
She filed a court order against a man claiming to be her husband
Pakistani actress Meera has challenged a marriage certificate filed in a court here by a man claiming to be her husband, saying it was a fake. Meera in her application filed in a civil court said the marriage certificate filed by Attiq-ur Rehman, who claims to be her husband, was only a ploy by him to usurp her property. She urged the court to nullify the document as she had never married Rehman, Online news agency reported.
Meera had come into prominence when she appeared in the Bollywood film 'Nazar' in 2005. Meera was paired opposite Ashmit Patel in the film that was directed by Soni Razdan and failed at the box office. Since then, she has been in and out of the news both in Pakistan and India.
In September last year, filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt, who with his brother Mukesh Bhatt had launched Meera in Bollywood, was going all out to help her after she apparently received death threats from her purported husband. It later appeared to him a case of Meera's past catching up with her.
"Yes, Meera did call from Lahore. Some guy claiming to be her husband tried to break into her home and kill her! At that time she seemed quite genuine in her call for help. Meanwhile Salman Taseer, the governor of Punjab, was very prompt in taking action, but Meera was still inconsolable," Bhatt had told IANS.
However, the situation turned out to be quite different. Reports started making the rounds that the man in question was indeed Meera's husband and had papers and photographs to back his statement. Apparently, he tried to reach Meera, but her guards prevented him from entering her house.
In 2008, Meera had landed up at Bhatt's house at around 2 a.m. after being apparently troubled by a man. She was living in Mumbai at that time and didn't have anyone else to help her. Bhatt had then asked Sevy Ali, who had produced 'Nazar', to help Meera out but she was miffed with him because he refused to shelter her.
