Khan had already spoken at length about the torture she had been through but with her latest revelation, she revealed that Wajid used to threaten her for divorce when she did not agree to convert.

She added that the two used to fight about the religion issue a lot and even after having two kids, the fighting did not stop. "This was the narrative, day in and day out," she said. She went on to speak about how Wajid used to abandon her and lived with his family for long periods of time. She was frustrated to a stage where she agreed for the divorce as well.

"He used to leave and stay at his mother’s house, sometimes for months on end. When he threatened to divorce me, I said ‘fine, let’s go ahead’. Even in court, I made my case about being under pressure to convert. His career was at stake, which is why this never came out in the public, but this had been going on since 2014," revealed Kamalrukh.
