I tried to convince him that he should accept his mistake. I have been trying for a very long time. He would have run away to UP by now if I did not catch hold of that mobile phone. He would have divorced me by now if I did not have the mobile phone.

Claiming that Shami is “making up all sorts of things to save himself from allegations”, Jahan further questioned the media for not investigating, even after she gave them all the details.

Till the day I took to social media, I tried to convince him to save our marriage. If he tries to come back, I may still consider.

Meanwhile, Shami on Sunday asserted that he wants the matter between the two to get resolved by talking.

If this matter can be solved by talking, nothing would be better than that. Only patch-up will be good for us and our daughter. If I have to go to Kolkata to solve the matter, I will. I am ready to talk, whenever she wants.
