Throwback: Why Pakistan PM and former cricket captain Imran Khan was ready for ‘arranged marriage’, Watch

Since his international debut against England in Birmingham in 1971, Pakistan Prime Minister and former cricket captain Imran Khan has been known for his charming looks and style almost as much as his sensational ability with both bat and ball. Imran went on to represent Pakistan in 88 Tests and 175 ODIs over the course of his two-decade career, and he remains the only Pakistan captain to win the ICC 50-over World Cup, which he did in 1992.

Imran was an established name in world cricket by the 1980s, and a’sex-symbol’ to boot, thanks to his stunning looks and style honed during his graduation from Keble College in Oxford. Imran was asked in a 1984 interview with ‘60 Minutes Australia’ if he would marry someone from outside Pakistan because he was such a popular figure among women all over the world.

“The label of lady killer is completely unjustified for me. “It has been very difficult for me to live with that image,” Imran says on the ’60 Minutes Australia’ show in 1984. “It’s becoming more of a conundrum by the day. The problem is that I want to live in Pakistan, and finding a Western girl who is willing to live in Pakistan will be difficult. Maybe I’ll get lucky and fall in love with someone who wants to live there, but since that hasn’t happened yet, the chances are slim. That is why I assume I will have an arranged marriage because there is no other way to get married in Pakistan,” a 32-year-old is quoted in the interview as saying.

Imran conducted this interview before meeting Jemima Goldsmith, a British journalist, screenwriter, television, film, and documentary producer. In 1995, Jemima and Imran were introduced at a London club.

They married the following year, with Jemima converting to Islam and moving to Lahore with husband Imran. Jemima and Imran had two sons, Sulaiman Isa (born in 1996) and Kasim (born 1999).

Goldsmith encouraged her husband to become more involved in his Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) party. The couple divorced on June 22, 2004, ending their nine-year marriage because it was “difficult for Jemima to adapt to Imran Khan’s political life in Pakistan.”

Following his divorce from Jemima, Imran married another British Pakistani journalist and television anchor, Reham Khan, in January 2015, but the marriage ended nine months later in October 2015.

On February 18, 2018, Pakistan’s Prime Minister married Bushra Bibi, a woman in her forties. Imran’s third wife is well-known for her sufi connections and served as Imran’s spiritual mentor.

In the midst of all of this, a report from the Star newspaper from the 1980s has resurfaced on social media and is grabbing everyone’s attention. According to the report, the former Pakistani captain was on the verge of marrying Bollywood diva Rekha. Rekha’s mother is said to have been pleased with the changes in her daughter’s life. According to the same report, Imran spent a month in Mumbai with the actress and was frequently spotted near the beaches.
