It was not easy to find the right partner, and be in a relationship that was equal. I have had a bout of one-sided love, which I made Ae Dil Hai Mushkil from. It was my sad ektarfa pyaar, which lasted many years, but taught me the power of love itself. It empowered me, even though it broke my heart.”

And I have my children; it is my most important love story. I have my mum, who is my pillar, my strength, my core. I feel I’m consumed by so much love already. It would be lovely to be in a relationship, because there are lonely moments, and there are moment where you need that tactility; you need someone to hold you and hug you, but somehow or the other, things haven’t fallen into place. I pray to the universe that eventually I can talk about a relationship of strength in my life.”
