New Delhi. Pakistani cricketer Mohsin Khan says he has no regrets about marrying Bollywood actress and his ex-wife Reena Roy. In a recent interview, the cricketer spoke openly about his and Reena Roy’s divorce. Mohsin Khan married Reena Roy in 1983 and both got divorced after a few years. He also has a daughter Sanam, who lives with Reena Roy. In this interview, Mohsin Khan also revealed that he had not seen any of her films before marrying Reena Roy.
Mohsin Khan was asked during an interview in Zee Sports Network that he has any regrets of going to India and marrying Reena Roy? To this Mohsin Khan replied, “I have no regrets. I married a man, I didn’t see who she was or where she was from. Eventually, I had decided that I wanted to live in Pakistan. I used to go out and play for Pakistan. Even though I went to England to play. I played county cricket in England, then league cricket, but I wanted to stay in Pakistan in the end.”
During the interview, the 68-year-old former cricketer said, “I never saw any of her (Reena Roy) films before my marriage, I swear, no one believes it. I never used to watch movies, I rarely watch. If I was going out of the house or coming inside and there was a scene of Amitabh Bachchan going on, I would probably stop and watch, that too for a few minutes. But apart from this I have never seen films. And I was never impressed by beauty, I liked a good person.
Reena Roy has told in several interviews earlier that Mohsin Khan had insisted that she move to London with him and take British citizenship, but she did not agree to it. In 1983, Reena Roy decided to leave the film industry to marry Mohsin Khan. However, Reena and Mohsin parted ways in the 1990s. According to reports, Reena Roy had initially lost the custody of her daughter to Mohsin Khan. However, Reena Roy got back the custody of the daughter after the cricketer remarried.
In an interview given to Times of India, Reena Roy while talking about Mohsin Khan said, “He is the father of my daughter. He is in contact with her. They both share a special bond of father-daughter. He is well settled in life and I pray that he remains healthy and happy. The actress had also revealed that she had sought help from sadhus and saints to get back the custody of her daughter. Let us tell you that apart from cricket, Mohsin Khan has also worked in many films including Bantwara, Fateh, Gunehgar Kaun, Pratikar, Madam X and Saathi.
