She also taught me the art of abandon! She made me the man I am….a man who is honoured to be raised by a woman of substance! Roohi my darling I hope I raise you to be just like your grandmother….#happywomensday,” he wrote with a picture of Roohi on InstagramKaran next venture is a Netflix’s Lust Stories.
