Marriage is the extremity of completeness. But in real life, often complete and successful things need work to keep them sustainable too. In reality, everything that shines has scars, and people mostly part their ways before death pulls them apart. Often, it’s been witnessed that between two people, no matter how rich, beautiful, and talented they are, their gaps grow, gaps of uncertainty and misfortunes, and there is a failure to nurture the pious bond of marriage.
The relationship struggles are not new to the showbiz industry of Pakistan too. We have been seen its emergence very adorable love stories, but which are side by a couple of sorrowful breakup stories too. There have been a number of unfortunate incidents when the couple due to unavoidable circumstances had to move apart. Here is a list of Pakistani actresses who unfortunately got divorced.
Mahirah Khan married Ali Askari on July 13, 2007. At that time, the husband Ali Askari was the head of MTV. The couple enjoyed blissful married life for around eight years and had a son named Azlan together in 2014. Right after her successful release, the drama serial HUMSAFAR, conditions started to turn their face from her.
Though she never revealed the reason for her divorce in media, once in her interview to a leading English newspaper, she said about her divorce with Ali Askari with the statement,
“There are some topics which you want to keep private when you are constant in public eyes.”
In another interview, she firmly stated that Azlaan was her only priority at the time, and she even had to let go of some good work at the time. She quoted,
"I do only one film at a time. My first priority is my child. So it's a lot of hard work. But it can be done. It's all about choices. Many times I have to let go of good work. Fortunately, the work I've done has worked for me."
Syra Yousuf and Shahroz Sabzwari announced on Saturday, February 29, that they had ended their marriage due to ‘irreconcilable differences.’

She further mentioned that she and Abdullah thought that their friendship would only grow if they get married, but the time has proven them wrong.

Most of the time, actors are assumed as people from some other planet or having some inhuman characteristics who have perfect lives and could not have any of the struggles. It is the most common view of the public about celebrities and their lives because people make assumptions about them based on the snippets of the experiences that they come across. However, the stars are just ordinary human beings, having a fair share of happiness and trials too. By the use of social media as all or most of the celebrities are using it, people can now see the humanized version of personalities and their lives. They now believe in transparency with their fans and followers, and it is the reason why we got to know about any struggles or hardships they are facing or have faced in the past. It is also the way for people to connect and relate to their favorite celebrities. It also enables celebrities to influence the lives of their fans and supporters by guiding them and teaching them life lessons based on their personal experiences.
