Nadia Khan Advises Women to Maintain Emotional Strength in the Face of Heartbreak
Renowned actor and TV host Nadia Khan recently appeared on Good Morning Pakistan alongside host Nida Yasir and former showbiz colleague Noor Bukhari. During their candid conversation, they discussed how some men take advantage of women who are going through emotional turmoil following a breakup.
“When you’re in a vulnerable state after a breakup, many people may approach you, pretending to offer support. Men, in various contexts such as work, family, and friendships, may exploit the situation,” Nadia observed.
She offered a piece of advice: “If you’re dealing with divorce, separation, or a recent breakup, make a resolution never to cry in front of a man.” Nida and Noor nodded in agreement as she continued, “You might discover that these men can be even more deceitful than before.”
Nadia urged women not to rush into new relationships immediately after the end of a romantic partnership. She cautioned, “Sharing your sorrows with a man may lead to a second heartbreak.”
While the actor did not share personal experiences, she encouraged women to be mindful, make wise decisions, and avoid making themselves emotionally vulnerable by seeking solace in another man after a breakup.
“At that moment, you are in a fragile state and may not realize what’s happening,” Nadia noted, reflecting on the emotional baggage that often accompanies a painful breakup.
She emphasized, “Talk to another woman, a friend, your mother, or even a stranger, but be cautious about sharing your concerns with a man.” In a lighthearted tone, she added, “If you do tell him and he doesn’t take advantage of you, you can change my name to Tabassum.”
This isn’t the first time Nadia has shared her views on divorce and its societal implications. In a podcast with Hafiz Ahmed earlier in 2023, she discussed the rising divorce rates. She highlighted how women now have greater financial independence, which enables them to become self-sufficient during challenging times.
When asked about the main reasons behind divorces in Pakistan, the Wehshi actor remarked, “I believe that people are less loyal these days. In the 1990s, it was quite a challenge for a man to approach a woman. He had to go through great effort just to get her personal number and hope for a call back.”
Nadia elaborated, “Now, there is so much interaction between men and women that husbands often neglect their wives at home. Wives are busy taking care of the household and children, and they find it ‘boring’.”
