Speaking about it she to told Vogue India, “When COVID-19 was declared a pandemic and the news was out that a lockdown would be imperative, Hrithik and I decided that staying together in the same home would be the intelligent and soulful decision for our sons, and for us.” You can imagine how psyched their fans were to see them together again even if it wasn’t as a couple.
