The eldest is married and has two kids, while the younger daughter got married last year. “I have two sisters from his first wife, Amandeep and Kamaldeep.

Opening up about his relations with the family, he said that whenever he visits them, they greet him well and this has been since the beginning. He added that it is neither Gurmail’s fault nor their (including his stepsisters) fault. When asked if they share their sorrow of losing Chamkila, to this, he replied that sometimes they do address his death. “She (Gurmail) would say that if your father was around, we wouldn’t be in such a state. He worked really hard, people’s evil eyes impacted him, and he had too many enemies. I have my sisters as well, we try to share our pain as much as we can,” he added.
