She told the publication, "I will do the prayers, remember him and I want the day to be very quiet. I want to visit the Juhu garden (Juhu Qabrastan) where he is (buried)." She also opened up about how much fans love the late actor as she revealed that their house used to be full of flowers and bouquets on his birthday every year. She mentioned there were so many flowers, there was often not enough room for them.

It used to be that wonderful. He was so loved by people. He still is."
