JAB WE MET “My husband Chintan, a hedge-fund manager, and I met through a common friend when we were all of 24. Call me filmy, but it felt like we were destined to meet.

We’ve lived in New York and Dubai, and now share a beautiful life together with our sons Rajveer and Aryaveer, in aamchi Mumbai.
