Model-turned-actor Saheefa Jabbar Khattak has addressed the speculation regarding her separation from her husband Khawaja Khizer on Instagram.
On Saturday, she shared a photo of the couple in an embrace and wrote, “Alhamdulillah, things are greater than ever, it’s just [that] we choose to keep our relationship very private. He has gone to Canada for his studies and I am in Pakistan waiting for my visa to come long distance isn’t bothering us much.”
She explained how they have been dealing with the situation, adding that she is not getting his tattoo removed. “Since so many of you asked as well, we have always been pretty mature with our relationship, our collective goals are so big that we don’t mind the long distance. Yes, we have our lows but he has found some great classmates who helps him with his anxiety and in Pakistan, I have kept myself busy with work so we are doing pretty fine. I wish him nothing but success and health (not getting his tattoo removed).”
She addressed the matter after many of her followers asked a series of questions including whether she’s removing the tattoo with his face and if things are okay between them.
“This isn’t the first time I have posted my tattoo removal on my stories. I have been posting on and off for about two years now but this time so many people came forward with their overwhelming concern and questions [so] I felt I should address them,” she wrote.
Why she removed a tattoo at all was due to multiple reasons, according to her. Wanting to move on, choosing to let go and also fixing an “ugly, faded” tattoo is some of the things she listed.
Last year, she opened up about undergoing a painful surgical procedure. Taking to Instagram, the Beti star shared a picture of her surgery with stitches on her nose.
Revealing details about the painful experience, the Teri Meri Kahaani diva revealed that she had been dealing with this issue for a long time.
Moreover, the doctors had warned her that she would need surgery to repair the bone in her nose. But due to her apprehensions about going under the knife, she was anxious.
“I had a deviated septum. The doctor told us we’d need to operate on the nose and surgically fix the bone. I’ve always been afraid of going under the knife,” she wrote.
“And cosmetically removing a part of my face just freaked me out. I didn’t want to get it done then. This last year breathing had become extremely difficult. And with all this pollution around us, I thought it’s just wise to have two working nostrils filtering the air.”
Giving the good news that the surgery went perfectly fine, she wrote, “So, I did the surgery two months ago. Alhamdullilah it went perfectly fine. My fears about it were real though. Everything about it was painful and uncomfortable and scary. The procedure itself wasn’t complicated, but the post-operation time was hard.”
Further, she added, “Cosmetically solving medical issues is considered such a taboo thing to do in Pakistan, and it isn’t as people imagine it to be. It isn’t always about beautification, there are a good number of cases when it’s about alleviating pain and improving health.”
“It took eleven years of courage to get to this point, but I’m glad that I did it now, and can at least breathe normally,” she concluded.
On the work front, Saheefa was last seen in ARY Digital’s Log Kya Kahenge opposite Faysal Quraishi and Aijaz Aslam.
