In an earlier interview with ETimes, when Munawar was asked if Nazila was bothered by his closeness with Anjali, he said, “It's human nature to get possessive about your partner Isn't it? She's just like any other girl. Also it depends as a couple how much understanding you have. I am very glad and very happy that the type of person I am she’s very smart, intelligent and mature. At the same time she’s very understanding and that’s the reason we are together. Agar hum ek saath hain toh kuch na kuch khoobiyaan hongi (Since we are together there might be some good things).”
