I respect him and he’s really caring.”Mahi tearfully added, “We are going for official separation very soon. When and how will it happen, will also be mutually decided by the two of us.”

Introducing herself at the beginning of the video, Mahi said, “I never thought I would have to record a video like this today. But, I felt that it’s time to let everyone know. Everyone should know it for our own good.”  

She added, “Only two people living under the same roof know it better why aren’t they happy? It cannot be understood from the outside.” They have been separated for quite some time, she said.   At one point of the video, Mahi requested the netizens not to make any negative comments about her child. In a tearful voice she said, “He might not understand these right now, but someday he will understand and certainly feel hurt. Please don’t do these. All of you pray for my son Farish so that I can raise him to be good person.”At the end of the video she said, “I will start working afresh. I have many battles to fight in my life. My son will grow up. I have a lot to do for him. Everyone please pray that my journey with Farish is smooth.”
