A few years ago, Eijaz Khan confessed to having cheated his girlfriend on national television. In 2019, Eijaz appeared on Rajeev Khandelwal’s chat show Juzz Baat and opened up. Now, in an interview, the actor clarified that he does not regret his decision of sharing it on national television. In Bigg Boss 14 as well, he had also talked about having cheated on a former girlfriend.
In an interview with the Times Of India, the actor said: “I don’t regret admitting my mistake on national television because that woman doesn’t belong to the industry. And, I am not that kind of a person who will take anyone else’s name because I want to have a kind of revelation on a public platform and show ‘Maine galti ki aur mai sudhaar raha hun’.”

Eijaz Khan also revealed that he has asked for forgiveness from his ex-girlfriend and she has also forgiven him for his mistake. “I had the guts to go and speak that someone like me, who puts my life on such high pedestal, who puts myself ‘Oh, I’m principled, I’m righteous’ and everything, I just want to say, ‘even I have screwed up.’ I am human and that makes me human. I am not God and I am not susceptible to mistakes. I am still figuring out my life to the best of my mental capacity just like yours. I am not glorifying my mistakes.” The City of Dreams actor also spoke about consciously staying away from Bigg Boss, as watching the show triggers him.
Currently, Eijaz is in a relationship with actress Pavitra Punia, whom he met on the reality show Bigg Boss 14.
