Aamir Ali and Sanjeeda Shaikh were one of the most loved couples in the television industry. Before getting divorced in January they were married for almost nine years. They both also have a daughter, Ayra together whom they welcomed through surrogacy. Aamir and Sanjeeda's love story was not less than a fairytale but their differences and troubles could not save their marriage. They both have always maintained a stoic silence on their separation and refrained from making any statements about each other in the public domain. Recently, Aamir broke his silence and talked about his divorce with Sanjeeda and the struggles of staying away from his daughter.
While talking to ETimes, Aamir shared, "It was extremely difficult at that point. After my marriage fell apart, main hil chuka tha (I was shaken). But I am a sportsman by nature, and I never give up. I have always been a happy soul, and I am glad that I am back to being that."
He added, "I don’t harbour ill feelings for anyone and I wish the best for my ex. Sab khush raho life mein (Everyone should just be happy)." According to him, the COVID-19 pandemic gave him ample time for introspection. It helped the actor gain perspective by allowing himself to look at the positives. During the pandemic, I got a lot of time to introspect. I started looking at the positives, be it from COVID-19 or my failed relationship."
Reportedly, Aamir has not been allowed to meet his daughter for the past 10 months. When asked to react to it, Aamir said, "It's a sensitive topic and I don’t wish to talk about it. I don’t want to play any cards, but unfortunately, a man is always blamed. I have always maintained a dignified silence on matters related to my personal life. Someone I have spent so many years with deserves respect. So, I won’t say anything."
