In an interview with Outlook India, Virender had talked about his children and how time is flying for him. He had said, "Aryavir is going to be 13 next year and teenagers are not easy to control. We spend as much time as possible with our children. When I was travelling, I missed them a lot. We realise that when children grow up, they will not spend any time with you. So this is our best time. A good day usually ends with Kaun Banega Crorepati or a movie together."
Virender had also shared how he actively indulge in his kids' upbringing and had shared, "Mobile phones only on Sundays and the kids must tell me or my wife what they are watching. This parental guidance is crucial and it's important to discuss everything with your children. Be it sex, movies, sports or the dos and don'ts of life, the lessons must come from parents and not from outside. This frankness between parent and child will make them better individuals and that is what we want them to become. But more importantly, they must understand that being Virender Sehwag's sons don't give them an advantage in life and you shall be punished for any wrongdoing, especially towards women."
