Gone are those days when couples used to end their relationship on a bitter note and hold on the grudges against their ex-partners. In modern times, most people are mature enough to understand that not every relationship is meant to survive forever and share a bond of mutual respect and friendship. Belonging to the latter category is Karisma Kapoor and her ex-husband, Sunjay Kapur. Karisma and Sunjay got divorced in 2016 and the custody of their two kids, Samaira Kapoor and Kiaan Raj Kapoor was given to the former.

I really don’t like it.’ She has great fashion sense and she completely participates in everything.” Talking about the lifestyle of her children, Kiaan Raj and Samaira, Karisma once said in an interview, “My kids have a very simple home life. We don’t discuss movies all the time. Instead, we are always discussing studies, activities. It’s not a special home or anything different. It’s like any normal child growing up.”
