The 45-year-old informs that Pankhuri underwent a C-section for the delivery and both the mother and babies are in good health. “She is expected to be discharged in four to five days,” he shares, adding that they have thought of a few names for the babies, “But, we have not zeroed down on any names yet. We will do that soon.”

But, she stretched it to 38 weeks, so that’s God’s blessing, and our kids are strong Our wish of having a boy and a girl has been fulfilled.”
The actor, known for shows such as Baa Bahoo Aur Baby, Saraswatichandra, and Kaal Bhairav Rahasya 2, says that they are lucky to have sufficient help at home from both the families. “Both my and Pankhuri’s mothers are around, and we have additional help as well. I am grateful for all the support we’ve received. Pankhuri is the constant force behind it all because she has to feed two kids,” he wraps up.
