MANCHESTER: Reham Khan, a TV host and until recently the better half of Imran Khan, has said that you may hit sixes but what really matters in real life is whether you can sustain a long-term partnership and complete a century.
Reham Khan expressed these veiled views while speaking at a media conference – her first after parting ways with former cricket star and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman, Imran Khan.
One can’t help but look at Reham Khan’s statement in a context of her relationship with the former cricket skipper.
Reham Khan also highlighted the problems being faced by the journalists in Pakistan in general and the media house she is associated with in particular.
Referring to working women, she said women play an important role in a society and they must be accorded due respect. Women are insecure in Pakistan and subjecting women to mud-slinging is highly inappropriate, she added.
“You will have to respect women, if you want to bring about change,” Reham Khan said.
She also said that no one should discuss someone’s private life in public.
Reham Khan left Pakistan for UK after the couple filed for divorce.
Speaking about the state of media in Pakistan, she lamented that laziness was a problem Pakistanis needed to grapple with, particularly in the fields of media and journalism despite the abundance of talent and the industry’s rich history.
She raised the point that Pakistani media did not follow important issues as big news barely survived a day before being swept aside. She complained that the media also focused on negativity, sidelining positive news.
The TV journalist is currently producing a film, ‘Janaan’, which has successfully completed the first phase of shooting.
