When asked which of his three kids is most likely to become an actor, Sanjay said, “I just want all my three children to be happy and passionate about whatever they do. I am still acting today because I truly love what I do and I want the same for them. Between them- Trishala is a psychiatrist and is doing so well as a counselor. She loves her work and I am so proud of her. Between my younger two, Shahraan is bent towards football. In fact, he recently fractured his foot while playing. Right now, he’s passionate about the game, but I still feel he has all the makings of an actor – he’s observant, intelligent, loves dancing, and can charm people with his humor. Iqra is more of an artist – her paintings are incredible and so beautiful. It’s hard to believe someone her age could paint so beautifully.”
