I am very emotional.”

My children, Junaid and Ira, are close to Kiran and Azad…Even after Reena and I filed for divorce, our family remains as close as ever…There are three women who are very important parts of my life — my mother, Reena and Kiran. I even carry pictures of my family on my phone with me, especially my mom’s,”
