In the same conversation, Anurag mentioned that he broke the door of the room in order to escape the memories that were connected to the place. Walking on the path of nostalgia, he remarked that since he can't go back to those memories, thus, he doesn't want to get stuck with the nostalgia. Talking about the same, he elaborated:

"My favorite memory in the house is when my daughter and I, when she was little, used to make films on the camera or iPad. She used to direct me, and I used to act, and we used to do everything. That was my favorite memory. This also became the room where my daughter used to stay, which I broke because of a lot of nostalgia. I don't want to think about things that I don't have anymore."

In an old interview with Pinkvilla, Anurag opened up about his daughter, Aaliyah's engagement, and mentioned that he was glad that he was invited to the ceremony. Anurag also stated that he got to know about Shane's proposal through social media. In his words:

"I am so glad I was invited. I got to know (about the proposal) through social media first, but this time I was there - I was invited. My little one grew up too fast, she has a mind of her own. She is pretty much like her mother and father, we are both stubborn people, I think she is also as stubborn and has a mind of her own. She has her own thing. So it's not like that, it was expected. I am very happy, I love Shane. He is an amazing boy. He is probably much more sensible and mature than I am."
