Sana Khan's husband Anas Saiyad refutes reports of asking her to quit showbiz, says 'this is narrow-minded people's thinking'

Sana Khan's sudden marriage to Surat-based Anas Saiyad raised many questions in the minds of her fan. The former actress married Saiyad in November, a month after quitting showbiz. This made several fans of hers feel she took this decision because of her husband Anas. However, he has now cleared the air and called them 'narrow-minded people'.

He told a leading daily, “I have never forced her to lead life in a certain way. She announced on Instagram around six months ago that she has taken hijab. People thought that it’s because of the pandemic and no work, but she always wanted to detach herself from what she was doing. I wanted her to give it some time, but she was certain. In fact, I was shocked, too, when she announced that she was quitting the industry.”

He added, “I prayed to God that I want to marry Sana and he heard my prayers. I feel that I wouldn’t have been this happy if I had married anybody else. Sana is not full of herself. She is affable, forgiving and has a clean heart. I always wanted a girl who complemented and completed me. People still ask me how I got married to an actress, but yeh chhoti soch ke log hain (they are narrow-minded people). It’s my life and no one should comment on it. People are free to think that we are a mismatched couple, but only we know how compatible we are.”

Announcing her decision to leave the film industry, Sana had mentioned in an Instagram post, “Today I am talking to you standing at a crucial juncture of my life. For years, I have been living the Showbiz (film industry) life, and during this time I have been blessed with all kinds of fame, honour and wealth from my fans for which I am grateful to them.” She had also deleted all posts tying her to her former career.
