The filmmaker highlighted the importance of 'Conscious Parenting' and said that he'll always teach Yash and Roohi 'inclusivity and humanity in equal measure'.
"Blessed to be a father…. My endeavour is to raise them as individuals and never Stereotype them by gender … teach them inclusivity and humanity in equal measure… we are in a world that needs Conscious parenting and I aspire to be that parent….
