Not an awful lot transpired in the Meera-Atiqur Rehman saga last week. But that doesnâ€™t mean those scary-looking hatchets have been buried, because Atiqur Rehman gave an interview on one of the TV channels on Monday night, giving air to his thoughts vis-Ã -vis the whole married-or-not-married situation.
It wasnâ€™t a startling tÃªte-Ã -tÃªte, but it had some extremely interesting moments. Atiqur Rehman alleged that Meera was in contact with â€˜other peopleâ€™, a fact which she didnâ€™t like Atiq to know about. He said the actress had telephonic contacts with them, and deleted their messages and phone call details when Atiq entered the house.
In order to prove his relationship with Meera, the businessman from Faisalabad said actress Zeba Bakhtiar knows about it, because during the shooting of one of her plays the couple often dined with Ms Bakhtiyar. He added he had spent between four to five crore rupees on Meera, and if she wanted a divorce she could do that by admitting that sheâ€™s his wife. However, if the Lollywood leading lady wishes to stay with him as his better half, he wouldnâ€™t mind: â€œAgar woh basna chahay to theek haiâ€¦â€
Atiqur Rehman also went on to advise all men not to marry showbiz women. He said at a meeting in which Sangeeta was also present, Meera touched his feet, sought his forgiveness and said she couldnâ€™t accept that sheâ€™s married to Atiq in front of the media.
Atiqur Rehman rued that he didnâ€™t pay heed to his parentsâ€™ advice when they tried to stop him from tying the knot with Meera, saying she couldnâ€™t stay with him for long.
See folks, thatâ€™s what they mean when they say: Aachay bachchon ko maan baap ki baat maan leney chahiye.
