In the same conversation, Arbaaz Khan shared that it was a very complicated situation for all his family members. Speaking about the same, he stated:

"It's not easy to say that these things are normal and it will work. Also, just because one such family can come together, doesn't mean it can be replicated by others. It is not an easy thing having two wives who are cordial and children who are accepting. It's a very complicated scenario and it's tough to answer what, how, and why it all worked out. But in hindsight, I think honesty and integrity made things a little easier for us."

"She was young, I was also young. Mera koi aisa iraada nahi tha. This is an emotional accident. Kisi ke sath bhi ho sakta hai."
