Imtiaz Ali: Marriage reduces you to a ch***a version of yourself
The ‘Jab We Met’ director Imtiaz Ali was looking extremely contented, even after going through a personal turmoil of a divorce with his wife Preety. Imtiaz in a candid manner reveals all about life after divorce from his wife. He feels at present he is a mixed bag of emotions. He prefers not to be a a ch***a version of himself, by being bond in a relation where your identity changes as per the will of others.
As per sources, Imtiaz Ali said, “I feel a different person after splitting from my wife Preety. I had become very formal in my approach to everybody. Marriage is so artificial; it comes with so many do’s and don’ts that not only make you claustrophobic but also mediocre. It reduces you to a ch***a version of yourself, you play roles to meet someone else’s expectations. Today, I say things as they are. I’m not hypocritical. I am as open-minded as when I was in school and college.”
Imtiaz Ali further added that, “I’d say I’m angrier and sadder as well. It’s a mixed bag of emotions. Regarding hating the institution of marriage, I feel that the men who stay married hate the institution of marriage more. I don’t know if I will marry again or not. Who can predict the future? Right now, I’m focused on my next film, Tamasha. Ranbir (Kapoor) and I had been talking about it for ages. It takes off in July.”
