“There Is No Khan Like Feroz Khan,” Celina Jaitly Remembers Her Christopher Columbus Feroz Khan

Celina who now resides in the Alpine  solitude of Austria with her husband and  children, was launched  by Feroz Khan  opposite his son Fardeen  in  Janasheen in 2003.

 Celina  still remembers Feroz Khan as  the life  and breath of every  event, the  host of  that ongoing party called life.

 She says, “Honestly,till date there is no Khan like Feroz Khan. He was a thorough gentleman, extremely intelligent and a very handsome intellectual. He was a big admirer of the Irish poet and playwright  Oscar Wilde and we often discussed his quotes over dinner and drinks.”

   FK had a special name for  Celina. “Mr Khan always called me “Celine” and was not only my mentor but my best friend. There was nothing I would not discuss with him, he even advised me about my boyfriend at the time.”

   She remembers  the  first time  they  interacted. “The first time I spoke to him was when he called to congratulate me all the way in Puerto Rico on becoming a Ms Universe Runners-Up. He literally signed me over the phone for JANASHEEN.”

   Since  FK lived life king-sized he treated Celina accordingly.  “During  my first shooting schedule I was made to feel like a princess and he and his entire family treated me like their own.”

  And then , the thorough gentleman  till the last.Celina  recalls her  last  meeting with FK. “Even in his last days before he went into ICU my last conversation with him was in his suite at the Breach Candy hospital. He tried to get up amidst all that pain to open the door for me like a true gentleman. The darkest moments of knowing him was when I sat with his daughter Laila and son Fardeen outside the ICU , staring into silence and the inevitable upcoming moment of eternal truth”

   Losing FK was  a blow Celina has not gotten  over. “Besides my parents and son’s  loss, his passing was the biggest loss for me and he is missed very dearly. I will always be his ‘Jansheen Celine’.He had  rare class and  charm.”
