What Did Mikaal’s Statement Say?
In an exclusive interview with The Icon, Mikaal opened up about being ‘scarred and scared’ of tying the knot for the third time. “In my marriage, I had certainly felt the pressure to clarify things with my wife. I would feel bad for her. The nature of this work can lead to your spouse making assumptions even if there is no truth to them at all.” He further added, “I am still scarred and scared but I am open to the idea. I don’t think about it all the time, though. I am very busy with work and I have my girls,” he shared with the publication.
Ex-Wife Sara Bhatti Hits Back

Her Instagram story read, “There is absolutely no truth to the statements about me in this article. I was an extremely supportive wife who took the entire responsibility on her shoulders alone just so Mikaal could travel and work, which he did non-stop. I never ever questioned him about women he worked with,” Sara added. “Yes, I did question him about the things which had actual ‘truth’ in them.”
Bhatti also said that she doesn’t think rumors are worth addressing, “I’ve been accused of being a bad mother, various lies are constantly published about me,” she wrote. She concluded on an optimistic note, “I’m on my life path, Alhamdulilah. I do hope that all those people doing this should be on their own life paths. I know for a fact God did not create you to spread gossip and lies about others.”
A Wise Move OR A Publicity Stunt?
