It is rather ironic that recently, after actor Cezanne Khan aka Anurag Basu of Kasautii Zindagii Kay went on to confirm that he is getting married soon; a lady has gone on to make an accusation.
A report suggests that a lady based in USA of Pakistani descent called Aisha Pirani has alleged that Khan was married to her in the US between 2015 and 2017. Talking about it to Times of India, she said, “I don’t care if he gets married 50 times over now, but why is he hiding the fact that he was married earlier? He cheated on me and used me to obtain green card in the US and lived off my money. The moment he got the Green Card, he filed for divorce.”
When Khan was called to know his take on the same, he said, “I was never married to her. This is a case of an obsessive fan. It’s irrelevant to talk about such people. She is just trying to gain publicity through me.”
Pirani claims, “Honestly, I had some issues in my first marriage and that’s when Cezanne started showing affection towards me, when I met him at my husband’s house in Mumbai,” she said. After Aisha’s divorce from her first husband, she claims Cezanne moved in with her in her US home and shuttled back and forth between US and Mumbai, and the two tied the knot on April 3, 2015. “He hid our marriage from his mother saying she wouldn’t approve of it, being an orthodox woman, who would want a younger daughter-in-law. I let the matter go since I was in love with him, until the second year of our marriage when he began chatting with his former girlfriend. When I objected, he started fighting with me."
Reacting to it, Khan said, “She is the sister of my cousin’s wife who lives in Karachi, that’s how I know her. I have no idea about any marriage certificate. She morphs a lot of stuff. She has been posting messages on social handles for two to three years and my fans have been asking me whether all this is true. There is a limit to obsession and this is going overboard now. The fact that she was married to me and we are now divorced is her fabrication. I haven’t said anything to her because I know she is obsessive.” Responding to Aisha's allegations that Cezanne has sent her abusive messages, screenshots of which she has saved, he said, “Screenshots are easy to fabricate. She is trying to gain publicity through me and if she has a problem, she should go to court.”
