Kkavyanjali fame actor Eijaz Khan was madly in love with a Canadian singer Natalie Di Luccio, and they dated for quite a long time. But as it is said that sometimes things don’t work out well in a relationship, same happened with Eijaz and Natalie as well. Life is not an easy sail, everyone has their share of ups and downs.

For those who don’t know, Eijaz and Natalie met in a very filmy style at the airport where he went to return her lost passport and love sparks started brewing right away. After seeing each other for quite a long time, Eijaz and Natalie’s relationship went kaput. Sometimes people come out of a break-up easily and sometimes it’s a hard-hitting one. Eijaz’s case fell in the latter category.
Recently, in an interview with a leading daily, Eijaz was asked the reason behind his break-up with his girlfriend Natalie.
Here’s what the actor replied:
"We were two amazing people at different phases in our lives. The root cause of our relationship falling apart was my psyche. It started going downhill during 'Laut Aao Trisha'. I played a dark character, who turns bitter after losing his wife and daughter. Somewhere, the lines blurred between real and reel and our relationship suffered. I had to undergo therapy for depression, and it made me realise that I was superimposing my childhood memories to play the part. I also realised that all my issues are deeply rooted in my childhood. I had unresolved issues with my parents after they parted ways. My aunts took turns to look after me. I never had a strong bond with my parents. I was always looking for someone to hold on to, some sort of an anchor."
He further added:
“Coming back to Natalie, we remain cordial. I never loved anybody like I loved her — like a child, my equal, a friend, travel partner. I don't think it was right for me to expect Natalie to give her precious time to our relationship. I would have also advised her to focus on her career if I were her family. I am the only person who knows the real Natalie. After she left, I was very disturbed to the point of not wanting to live anymore. I would lock myself up in my room for days on end. As actors, we are emotionally fragile. On top of that, we men are expected to be macho and strong, no matter how broken we are inside.”
Continuing even further, he stated:
“I won't say I am at peace, but I have started directing my energies towards my goal. That eases me out. I am in turmoil when I am not working, as I have to live with myself.”
When asked if he put his career on hold when he was dating Natalie, he said:
“Natalie didn't ask me to. I invested my time, energy and happiness in her without being asked. Love and respect make my world go round. I become the best person for my partner. I give so much expecting the same or more in return — it doesn't stem from self-respect, it stems from insecurity. I have abandonment issues. If I love somebody, I need to be loved back. But overwhelming your partner is not right. I won't mind putting my career on the back burner if my partner wants me to stay at home and take care of the child. I am an actor and can return to the field whenever I want.”
Last but not the least, his final take on love and marriage:
“I am not averse to the idea, but I am not looking forward to it either. I can't go through the trauma of losing someone again.”
