So then you know when you’re in that phase it’s very hard for you to actually make sense of things in a way that you would make sense of. on a normal day. Because you’re weak right you’re not feeling strong enough. So I felt like all the voids that I had mentally physically emotionally he was there to like fill it. So between him and me you know we were 100 percent.”

Neha Dhupia added, ” I felt that I dipped a little bit but to um you know get trolled on the fact that our child’s uh time of birth was non-linear to like nine months post marriage. Also for getting trolled for my weight or getting trolled for things that I have said on reality television. I just feel like I am always in the eye of the storm. On the other hand, we have now reached a point where he is just like he casually asks me sometimes like, ‘you are sure right that everything will be okay tomorrow morning’. So I am like, ‘yeah we’re not facing any more music’. So I mean but from being strong to being a pillar to not making me feel like any lesser about anything but he would just always make me feel complete and that’s the most important thing in a relationship.”
