"Citizen Khan" actor and creator Adil Ray played the role of a calamitous father and community leader, Mr. Khan, who clashes with his wife and daughters to perfection. 

Off-camera, he is a man full of mystery, as not many facts have been revealed by the man about his life's personal front.

There was a belief that the actor was a married man with a wife. Well, If you think the same, you might just be wrong. Let's see why the claims of him being a married man could be a mistake after all!

Adil Ray Is Not Married & Has No Wife: The Reason!

Many people think that Adil Ray is a married man and has a wife in his life, as he has played a family man to perfection in many of his projects. Plus, he has been socially verbal about him having a wife, which is why he is a rumored married man.

However, his characters on-screen and his tweet are completely misleading; as Adil himself has revealed, he is not a married man despite him willing to get married and step into a whole new dimension in his life.

In an interview back in October 2015, he revealed the real reason why he is not married. Adil exclaimed,

“I would like to, I’ve suffered from my parents’ experience – although I don’t blame them at all. I think subconsciously I’ve always thought I wanted to have the perfect family. Although I’ve dated and had relationships, part of what has stopped me going further is that I want it to be perfect.”

Going by his statement, he has seen relationships crumble, and that might be the reason why he could be waiting to find someone with whom he can last a long run and spend the rest of his life. Indeed a possible explanation for him not being married as of now!

However, he has often joked about his will to get married to particular women in the industry. Here's how he expressed his desire to have the beautiful Salma Hayek as his wife.

Everybody wish he finds a perfect match soon and ties the knot soon!

Is Adil Gay?

Several rumors surround celebs at times, and Adil Ray is not far from those speculations' target area, as he is often termed to be a gay man. 

However, the 46-year-old has never talked about him being gay or having a male partner in his life. But, he has opened up about his dating affairs and having a girlfriend in his life.

Moreover, why would a gay man express his desire to marry Salma Hayek? Isn't that enough for us to conclude that he is a straight man? It sure is!
