We got married in a world before social media. But you kind of realize that when you ask for space, everyone backs off. That kind of perverted interest only comes when you hide it.

I have a very normal life and people are very used to it and give me my space and privacy. I’m grateful for the real intimacy I feel living in this city, but in general, people in Mumbai and Maharashtra never feel like invading your privacy and will back off when you tell them. And so is Azad. I’ve told him, people tell you. If asked for a picture, say yes if you’re okay with it, say no if you’re not. So when we go to the airport and people want a picture with him, sometimes he says yes, sometimes he says no. We have them outside the gates or wherever we go. No paps.”
