His dad Sanjay Khan, then a father of three, expecting his fourth, was rumoured to be in an affair with the beautiful actress Zeenat Aman. But, it wasn’t the rumour in itself that was most talked about, it was the physical abuse that he inflicted on Zeenat Aman in the Taj Hotel in Mumbai, as reported by the Cine Blitz newspaper. It was a horrifying story that led to a huge uproar in Bollywood. With so much media focus and general unease surrounding him, Sanjay Khan’s wife Zarine Khan decided to move out of the house and out of the relationship. But, it was the birth of Sanjay Khan’s fourth child, Zayed Khan, that got this estranged couple back together. Zarine considers him a miracle baby, and he sure proved to be lucky for his parents.

Zayed did his early schooling from Welham Boy’s School, Dehradun and later moved to Kodaikanal International School, Kodaikanal, where he met his childhood sweetheart and wife to be Malaika Parekh.

Zayed Khan Wedding – The Love Story

Like any other teenager in school, Zayed had a crush on Malaika. But neither of them knew their love would end up in marriage. After years of dating in school, both of them had to venture out and face the world. Zayed was initially skeptical about this relationship, but didn’t let these feelings take over.

He proposed to her with a ring, and asked her to wait till he came back to her, having achieved something substantial in his life. She agreed to wait for her love for that was the immense trust she had in him! Malaika, who hailed from a family whose specialty lay in gems and jewellery, went on to take up her late father Rohit Parekh’s diamond business.

After debuting as an actor in the movie Chura Liyaa Hai Tumne in 2003, Zayed faced a lot of criticism and was bombarded with nasty remarks from film critics that questioned his acting skills. It was during this time that a heartbroken Zayed was comforted by his lady love and greatest supporter, Malaika who stood by him through thick and thin. It wasn’t long before Zayed, as a supporting actor, had his first blockbuster hit with Main Hoon Na in 2004. He was then linked with colleagues Dia Mirza and Esha Deol (another schoolmate of his), but turned out to be just the usual rumour frenzy and he came out of it smelling of roses. Subsequently, he won a Filmfare award in 2005 for Main Hoon Na, proving his mettle to the industry in the process.
