Fortunately, we both have very understanding parents and families. They definitely want us to have children and we know that if we ever have one they’ll be elated and will make the world’s best grandparents but they let us be and respect our space and thoughts. Like you know it is because of practical reasons, we’ll have to leave the city to raise a child in the ideal surrounding. I see parents running and running because they have children. And what kind of world are children coming into anyway. So we thought maybe we’ll adopt a child and give him a better future.”

Yes, we are living separately. This decision has been taken with mutual respect and care for each other and our families. We are two best friends who may not be a couple anymore.

We are good friends and share a cordial relationship. If I degrade or take away the grace and dignity from the relationship, then I am saying that the seven years we spent together were rubbish which is not true. I have grown up as a person, there is a lot that I am grateful for towards Raq and it is always going to be like that. We tell each other’s family that we will always be family.”
