After all the rumours and speculation that floated around him, Suraj Pancholi now has come forward and cleared the air on his relationship with Jiah Khan. With the court having granted him release and closing the case against him, he speaks about his love, life and times with Jiah.
In an interview to the Times of India, Suraj Pancholi Reveals Jiah Khan’s Shocking Past, “I met her through Facebook 10 months back. She was a really nice person, quiet, small things made her happy, caring, but she was too possessive even about my guy friends. We went twice for dinner and then a week later, I get a message saying, ‘Suraj, I need help. My hand is bleeding. Can you come over?’ I was in town and she stayed in Sagar Sangeet Juhu (three minutes from my house), so I sent my staff to her house at 11.30 at night. She opened the door and fainted. She had slit her hand at the elbow like 3 inches. I was 21 then. By the time I went there, the doctor had stitched her up and she was on drips. I was with her, but she did not speak.”
Later, Suraj spoke to her mother in London and asked her to come as her daughter needed help. She promised to come in 2 months but turned up only after 4. “During those four months, I fell in love with Nafisa. I could relate to her as I too, like her, lived alone and could see what she was going through. She would tell me how she was depressed due to not getting work, her relationship with her family not being good, the fact that her father had disowned her and that she supported herself. She told me about her getting abused by her former boyfriends and how an older man had raped her when she was 14 in London and how at one point in her life, she would get only one meal a day. I fell even more for her. She just needed more love from her family and respect from people around. I could not fulfill all of that, though I did more than a 21-year-old could. She would cry every night. She could never be alone after she met me and would come to my house often.”
He also revealed that she had trust issues. She would accompany him to class and sometimes he would have to make his teachers talk to her to convince her that he was in class. He also revealed how she would cry every night during the seven months he was with her she would cry.
He also shared that, “Before she committed suicide on Monday, she called on Saturday to say, ‘I am going to Hyderabad. I am going to get a film and just want you to spend this Sunday with me’. I told her okay, but I don’t want to go through the trauma of separation again so this would be the last Sunday together.
I sent her a bouquet on Monday morning saying, ‘All the best’. She again called me on Monday evening saying, ‘I want to meet you’. I said, ‘I can’t meet you’ and sent her a message saying, ‘Nafisa, let’s not do this’ and put my phone off. And that’s the last time I spoke to her. Two hours later, my father told me about her committing suicide.”
“I still love her.”, he signs off.
