I was never a home breaker: Asha Parekh admits love for Nasir Hussain


Veteran actor Asha Parekh made a candid confession in her autobiography, ‘The Hit Girl’ launched by Salman Khan. Asha Parekh finally declared to the world that she was in love with filmmaker Nasir Hussain but she never tried to establish relationship with him as he was married. She added that she was never a home breaker and always maintained a cordial relationship with his family.

Hussain launched Asha Parekh in 1959 film ‘Dil Deke Dekho’. Then they teamed up for seven feature films, including ‘Teesri Manzil’ and ‘Caravan’.

Asha ji told IANS, "Yes, Nasir Saab was the only man I ever loved. It would've been worthless to write an autobiography if I didn't write about the people who mattered in my life."

Despite her relationship with Hussain, she has always maintained a good equation with his family. Hussain's grandson Imran Khan and daughter Nusrat was present at the book launch. Asha ji said, "I was never a homebreaker. There was never any ill will between me and Nasir Saab's family. In fact, I was so happy to see Nusrat (Hussain's daughter) and Imran at my book launch. I feel I've lived my life decently and without hurting anyone."

She credits her co-author for putting her life in the book. "My co-author Khalid Mohamed handled the whole episode so discreetly and gracefully," she said.
