Mumbai: Indian pacer Mohammad Shami’s wife Hasin Jahan has undergone a tough few months.
In March, she had accused Shami of attempt to rape, murder and domestic violence, and had even filed a police complaint against him.
Despite this, on March 23, Shami was awarded a Category B contract by the Board of Control for Cricket in India. (BCCI)He soon after went onto play a few matches for Delhi Daredevils (DD) in the Indian Premier League (IPL).
Hasin Jahan, however, seems to have moved on from the dark past. She recently revealed that she would make her Bollywood debut in Fatwa, a film directed by Amjad Khan.
“I will be playing a journalist in Fatwa,” she was quoted saying by Mumbai Mirror.
She continued by saying that she would not have married Shami if she wanted to be in the limelight. “If I really wanted to be in the limelight, I wouldn’t have married Shami. I would have married a tycoon. I would have shifted to Mumbai long ago,” she said
“I did what I did because of my future and that of my daughter’s,” she continued.
Jahan, who termed the Delhi cricketer as a ‘criminal’, also said that her husband wanted a divorce.
“He wanted a divorce, not because I didn’t have the requisite virtues, but because he wanted to indulge his vices.”
She also went onto say that Shami had kept limitations on her. “I was hardly ever allowed to go outside freely. Sitting in a room, I had come to weigh 80 kilos. I had a child to raise and I did not have any alternative source of income. Why would I divorce my husband?”, she questioned.
“BCCI! Do you really expect more from that pack of rogues?”, reacted Jahan when asked about BCCI clearing Shami’s allegations.
She also continued saying that West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Bannerjee’s main aim was to protect her.
Didi was very maternal when she met me, but she and the Kolkata police only protected me. They did not support me. They supported Shami. That’s why he hasn’t been arrested,” she stated.
Jahan also added that Shami was unable to frame a sentence when she met him for the first time during an IPL function.
“I groomed him,” she said.
“He might have a change of heart later. He might even come back. For five years, I suffered like an abla naari. I’m now going to pick myself up,” she continued.
But I’ve learnt this one thing—you must protest the minute you’re oppressed. Silence just spells destruction,” she concluded....
