Pakistani singer Rahat Fateh Ali Khan is extremely upset over reports doing the rounds in the media about him getting a divorce from his first wife Nida and marrying a model, Falak.
Talking to Mirror from Lahore, last evening, Khan clarified: “I have no model girlfriend. I don’t even know who this Falak is. I have never met her in my life.”
According to him, these reports are an attempt to tarnish his image. “I don’t think anybody can destroy me. I love my work too much. But somebody definitely wants to pull me down.”
Explaining his decision to clear the air, Khan said: “I am talking to you simply because of my three kids. I wonder what they must be going through after reading all this. Thankfully, my wife understands that such rumours are a part and parcel of any celebrity’s life.”
But, that is no consolation and the singer fumed: “I am not only disturbed but angry too. I married Nida in 2001. Ours was a love marriage. Even after 12 years, I love her too much to marry someone else.”
Has he ever been attracted to another woman after his marriage? “Nahin. Aur aisa kabhi hoga bhi nahin,” he stated emphatically.
Satisfied that he has made his point clear on the subject, Khan went on to talk about his forthcoming album, which is due next year. Interestingly, his office has approached Priyanka Chopra to sing a duet with him. “Priyanka is a fabulous singer,” he raved.
Khan has not visited India since he was detained at Delhi’s Indira Gandhi International Airport with undeclared foreign currency in February 2011. He had told this newspaper in an interview dated February 23, 2013 that he was not aware of the upper limit for foreign currency a foreign national is permitted to carry.
Talking to us on Wednesday, he mentioned that he plans to visit the country soon: “I want to record the songs of my forthcoming album in India. I hope to release it on Valentine’s Day. If not, I shall come out with it in April.”
