Urfi does not have faith in Islam. In an interview, she said, “To be very honest, I don’t believe in Islam and I’ve never believed in it. I feel a lot of things in Islam are a bit regressive but so are in other religions as well. The world is changing at a very fast pace but religions are not and just because of that reason some people are lagging behind. This is the main reason behind the generation gap because people are not ready to change. I don’t like the fact that Islam allows four weddings. Triple talaq was banned and I think it was for the best.” She does not like the restrictions that are imposed on women in the name of religion. She said, “In Islam also there are many things that women should wear burkha and they should stay behind a parda, I don’t understand these things. If a girl wants to do it willingly then it is fine. One should not force something on others.” She also said it straight that she would never marry a Muslim man. She said, “I am a Muslim girl. Most of the hate comments I receive are from Muslim people. They say that I am tarnishing the image of Islam. They hate me because Muslim men want their women to behave in a certain way. They want to control all the women in the community. I don’t believe in Islam because of this. The reason why they troll me is because I don’t behave the way they expect me to as per their religion.”
She has a feather tattoo on her left ribcage.
• She uploaded a series of Instagram stories and accused the casting director, Obed Afridi of exploiting young models. She claimed that Obed did not give her money for her work. She even said that Obed harassed girls sexually in exchange for modelling assignments. She posted various screenshots of the chats and stated that 5 different girls have come up with similar statements. Various celebrities such as Priyank Sharma, Nikita Bhamidipati, and Arushi Handa supported Urfi by posting stories in agreement with her.
• In November 2022, while speaking at a literary event organised by a media house, Chetan Bhagat mentioned Urfi Javed’s name while asserting that youth were spending a lot of time on Instagram. He said, “Phone has been a great distraction for the youth, especially the boys, spending hours just watching Instagram Reels. Everyone knows who Urfi Javed is. What will you do with her photos? Is it coming in your exams or you will go for a job interview and tell the interviewer that you know all her outfits? On one side, there is a youth who is protecting our nation at Kargil and on another side, we have another youth who is seeing Uorfi Javed’s photos hiding in their blankets.” Later, Urfi Javed took to Instagram to slam the author and wrote, “Men like him will always blame the women than accept their own shortcomings. Stop promoting rape culture you sickos out there. Blaming women’s clothes for the behaviour of men is so 80s Mr Chetan Bhagat.”
Relationships & More
She was in a relationship with Paras Kalnawat. They met each other on the sets of the TV serial Meri Durga. They broke up in 2017. Upon being asked in an interview about Paras, Urfi said, I wanted to break up with him one month after we got together. He was a kid. He was very possessive. He tried to woo me again by having 3 tattoos of my name, but who does that after one has parted ways? Surely, I wasn’t going back to him just for the tattoos. Even if he had tattoos of my name all over his body, I wouldn’t have.”
