Purab Kohli on having a child before marriage

In a conversation with Bollywood Bubble, Purab Kohli addressed the criticism around having a child out of wedlock. “There have been a few things you know I’ve been married before you know there were a few things that came out even during that time. But these are part aspects of me I can’t deny them. This is who I am and I don’t want to make a big deal about it. People ask me questions I answer it and move on.”

Purab also shared his concerns that people might question his daughter Inaya about her birth in a wrong way. The actor said, “It will concern anyone if your child is impacted by it. But Inaya knows that. She knows she was born before Lucy and me were married and we love her to death. So I mean what is wrong with that? If anything is possible there’s nothing wrong with it. It’s possible to have a child without being married. I don’t see if there is anything wrong and so does everyone around me.”
