A recent controversy saw Pirani file a police complaint against Khan, accusing him of domestic abuse and blackmail.

Aisha Pirani, who asserts her marriage to television star Cezanne Khan, has recently filed a complaint against the actor, alleging instances of domestic violence and extortion. During an interview with ETimes, Pirani revealed that Khan had been financially dependent on her between 2013 and 2016, which she supported with credit card bills as evidence.

She further revealed that Khan would frequently resort to verbal abuse, using offensive language even for minor lapses such as forgetting to bring fruits, which he liked to consume at night. Certainly, here are a few more instances of Indian actors who have faced allegations of abuse:

Nawazuddin Siddiqui, a renowned Indian actor, found himself involved in a controversy when his estranged wife, Aaliya Siddiqui, filed for divorce in 2020 and made serious allegations against him. Aaliya accused Nawazuddin of mental and physical abuse during their marriage. She also claimed that Nawazuddin's family harassed her for dowry. The case gained media attention, shedding light on the personal life of the actor. Nawazuddin Siddiqui has denied the allegations made against him, and the legal proceedings regarding the divorce and the allegations are ongoing.

Armaan Kohli, a former Indian actor, faced legal trouble in 2018 when his live-in partner accused him of domestic violence.
