Eijaz Khan is a very successful actor, a sorted person and most importantly, very diligent. However, on the personal front, his life has been a roller coaster ride surrounded by controversies.
From cheating on his girlfriends to being accused of rape and gong to jail, the actor has dealt a lot emotionally and mentally at a very young age.
Here is everything that you need to know about Eijaz's childhood to date.
Eijaz's tormenting background
Eijaz Khan's parents separated when he was just three and lived with his brother and father in Mumbai while his mother and sister lived in Hyderabad. He was not even told about his mother's death for quite some time and did not even know that he had a sister until then. Speaking on the same, he said in an interview:
We recognised each other, and that was the start of a strong relationship. The good thing that happened in my life was that I got my sister married, and now we share a close bond." His sister was 13 when he got to know of her existence.
Eijaz's girlfriends who walked away
Eijaz was touted to be the heartthrob of telly town. His suaveness, machoism and romantic portrayal on-screen wowed fans and actress. His personal life was in full swing. He dated three TV actors; unfortunately, none of them worked out.
Let's take a look at his love affairs.
The gorgeous actress, now happily married to Rohit Reddy and is soon to embrace parenthood, was Eijaz's girlfriend. However, their relationship went kaput when he cheated on her. Eijaz confessed about the breakup on a chat show"JuzzBaat" hosted by his close friend, actor Rajeev Khandelwal.
Eijaz with teary eyes said:
The only time jab Maine Kisi pe cheat Kiya. Galti hui jo mere puri Zindagi ka nichod nikal Diya. (The only time when I cheated on someone. It was a mistake which churned up my whole life).
Natalie Di Luccio
Italian-Canadian singer, Natalie Di Luccio and Eijaz were the talks of the town, by then social media PDA was a thing, and his profile picture was full of mushy pictures of Natalie. On parting ways with her, Eijaz who was at that time working on "Laut Aao Trisha", shared in an interview that "We were two amazing people at different phases in our lives. The root cause of our relationship falling apart was my psyche. It started going downhill during 'Laut Aao Trisha'.
In an interview Eijaz said:
I played a dark character, who turns bitter after losing his wife and daughter. Somewhere, the lines blurred between real and reel and our relationship suffered. I had to undergo therapy for depression, and it made me realise that I was superimposing my childhood memories to play the part. I also realised that all my issues are deeply rooted in my childhood. I had unresolved issues with my parents after they parted ways. My aunts took turns to look after me. I never had a strong bond with my parents. I was always looking for someone to hold on to, some anchor.
Actress Nidhi Kashyap
Eijaz's third girlfriend, Nidhi Kashyap who was an aspiring actress He had earlier opened up about it on a chat show hosted by his close friend, actor Rajeev Khandelwal. Speaking on the chat show JuzzBatt, Eijaz had said in 2018:
Yes, we had an ugly tiff which got out of hand. But things have been sorted out now, and everything is normal between us.
However, giving some more explanation on the same, Eijaz shared that he was in a live-in relationship with her, but when things were not working out for him. He tried to make her understand why they should part ways, she went to file a police complaint and accused him of rape, and also took her pet dog away from him.
He said: "I started telling her that it was not meant to be. But she got carried away and tried to file a police complaint against me because of which I could not attend Tanu Weds Manu promotions. I had to leave Mumbai for a couple of days because of that."
Eijaz's actor girlfriend had filed a case of physical abuse against him in 2011. A Mumbai Mirror report said that the complaint mentioned Eijaz's abusive behaviour and claimed that he would often get angry and beat her up.
However, she later withdrew the complaint.
