Sanjeeda Shaikh talks about battling a tough phase

Sanjeeda and Aamir embraced parenthood after they welcomed their daughter, Ayra Ali via surrogacy. After their divorce, the custody of Ayra was given to Sanjeeda. In a recent interview with Bollywood Bubble, Sanjeeda spoke about how she battled a tough time in her personal life. Speaking about the same, Sanjeeda said:

“I am not somebody who would talk about every small thing on social media or call the media home and talk about what is happening in my life. I have my people to talk about; I don’t need cameras for that. I have my family: my mother, my brother, and my daughter. My daughter is too young, but today, she is a four-year-old who understands everything. My child has been a blessing in my life and has given me so much strength.”

In the same interview, Sanjeeda also spoke about deriving strength from her mother, who supported her as she battled her divorce with Aamir Ali. Elaborating on the ways she supported her, Sanjeeda said:

“My mother is a very strong lady, she has a voice of her own and she has done stuff in her life. She is not worried about what the world is saying. She always says take decision for yourself, your child and that is what I did. I am extremely proud of myself.”
