Earlier, in an interview with iDiva, Farah Khan Ali had shared the most romantic moment of her marriage with DJ Aqeel and had revealed, "I remember, only after a few years into our marriage, he gifted me a heart shape solitaire ring, bought with his own money. It was the first ring he ever gave me. But it kept slipping off my finger. I was terribly disappointed and that's when he reminded me, 'What is more important is that you have me.' It was such a touching moment. I realised it's the sentiment that makes jewellery so precious. In the 15 years that we have been together there have been many such moments that have made me fall in love with him all over again. But what remains closest to my heart is when our children were born-it truly was our Platinum Day of Love that we will cherish forever."
