Will I be able to hold my child properly? Now also, when I hold a baby, I am so scared I don’t know how to cradle a baby while keeping its neck and back safe. I’ve been taking tips from Karan (Malhotra, Shamshera director) as he’s had a baby during the pandemic.”
“I can’t describe the real feeling that I am feeling inside me. I am very happy and very excited, and very nervous. I am also terrified, but I am very grateful. I am grateful to the point that I’ve never experienced this emotion in my life, I’ve experienced different emotions, but this is one emotion that completely fills your heart,” he continued as she revealed how he and Alia had been dreaming of their future together and their kids.

So we have to somewhere plan out a balanced life where we both can enjoy our personal life and our professional life, so it is one day at a time, one step at a time, but I have a lot of expectations from it,” he said.
