The report further added that Sajid Nadiadwala had treated his late ex-wife, Divya Bharti's parents, Om Prakash Bharti and Meeta Bharti, as his own, since the day of their marriage.

"For Sajid, Om Prakash Bharti was like his own father. He calls Divya's parents mom and dad. Now that the patriarch is gone, Sajid will look after Divya's mom just like any son."
