Seema Khan, a fashion designer and star of Fabulous Lives of Bollywood Wives, has spoken up for the first time about her split from her ex-husband Sohail Khan. After 24 years of marriage, she and Sohail decided to call it quits and filed for divorce earlier this year.
In a recent interview, Seema discussed the topic and described how she was able to consider her life decision. In 1998, Sohail and Seema first crossed paths on the Pyaar Kiya To Darna Kya set. Later on, the pair wed secretly. Nirvaan and Yohan, their two boys, are born to them. They had been residing in separate apartments for a considerable amount of time prior to filing for divorce.
When asked about divorce, Seema told Bollywood Bubble, “The thing is, if I were to wallow and it’s a deep dark hole that you can quickly spiral into. So I choose to be on the other side. For me, this is what keeps me going. So even for the kids, for the family members, my brother or my sister. It’s not nice to see your sister wallowing or your daughter… Then you’re constantly stressed about that person.”
“So it’s for them to see that I am looking at my life completely from the positive angle. I’ve let go of any negativity I might have. I think I have reached a point where I don’t care anymore. As long as, these people know who I am, this is my family, my parents and my kids and my siblings,” she added about how she dealt with her choice.
Seema changed her name on social media following the divorce. She reverted to using her maiden name, Seema Kiran Sajdeh, dropping the ‘Khan’ from her name. In the second season of her Netflix series, she last made an appearance alongside Bhavana Pandey, Neelam Kothari, Seema Sajdeh, and Maheep Kapoor.
