Imran Khan Was Brutally Honest About His Marriage With Reham And Pakistanis Can't Handle It

By Sannia Bilal | 22 Jul, 2018

We’re not new to the controversies surrounding Imran Khan and his former wife Reham Khan.

It took us all by surprise when IK announced his marriage to Reham Khan, the former weather reporter on BBC.


Though their marriage didn’t last too long (10 months to be precise), they’ve been throwing fireballs at each other ever since. Okay, well – mostly Reham.

Her infamous allegations of adultery, chars and the book fiasco are just a few examples.


After two, Khan still didn’t lose hope and decided to get married for the third time to Bushra Maneka.

Yeah, we were just as shocked.

In a recent interview, however, Imran Khan opened up like never before. 

Talking about his third wedding, he said: ‘I did not catch a glimpse of my wife’s face until after we were married. I proposed to her without seeing her because she had never met me without her face being covered with a full veil. The only idea I had of what she looked like came from an old photograph I had seen in her house.’

As you all might know already, here’s what she looks like.


Khan also explained how it would’ve been impossible for him to think of marrying someone without seeing their face back when he was a cricketer.

He said: ‘It might have been unthinkable if someone had told me I would marry someone whose face I hadn’t seen. I would have thought they were mad’.

He admitted how his attitude towards relationships has changed.

‘I have gradually realized that although I know more about physical attraction than anyone else, actually the character of a person and the mind, the intellect, is much more important than the physical, because in my experience that has the smallest shelf life. That is what keeps the interest. I have great respect for my wife’s intellect and character.’



But – and here’s what everyone was waiting for, too. He ALSO finally talked about Reham Khan. 


One of Khan sahab’s closest advisers alluded that during his relationship with Reham he had ‘never seen him so unhappy.’

And then IK himself went further on the topic (which is quite rare) he said: ‘Normally I don’t say anything about Reham, but I will say this: I’ve made some mistakes in my life, but my second marriage has to be the biggest.’

Let’s just blow that up real quick:

“Normally I don’t say anything about Reham, but I will say this: I’ve made some mistakes in my life, but my second marriage has to be the biggest.”


And subsequently, the Pakistanis had a meltdown.

The big ‘she’s only famous because of IK’ debate had to kick in.

Some were shocked about his timing.

Some stood by Reham.

Others were… Well… Just Insafians!

But then the haters kicked in.

Some even questioned him for marrying again.

Others were glad he parted ways with her sooner than later.

And some HAD to compare his political decisions to his personal ones.

Yeh tou zaruri tha na!

Others couldn’t help being amused.

With that being said, we wish Imran Khan a happy married life this time around. But…that’s QUITE a statement. Khair, have anything to add? Share your thoughts in the comments.
