Shabbir Jan, Personal Life and Marriages.

Jan was first married to Shamim. After a considerable number of years, Shabbir, with the consent of his first wife, re-married. He tied the knot with fellow actress Fareeda. According to him, as said in a television interview, if a man wishes to re-marry he must obtain the consent of his first wife. Re-marrying is Islamically allowed, and hence better than a lot of extra-marital vices. However, in his opinion, the agreement of the current wife is essential.
