Aruna Irani recently shared many intimate details of her life in an ANI podcast with Smita Prakash.

Toh ek emotions…hote hote…kab liking badh gayi. I know he was a married man, we couldn’t get married. That’s why hum bhaut aage nahi jaa sakte the, lekin we were more than friends…so, he made my career, even I used to like him.”
