Last year in London, Aftab Shivdasani and his wife Nin Dusanj welcomed their first child, a baby girl named Nevaeh. They have relocated to the United Kingdom as a result of the pandemic and are awaiting a suitable moment to return to Mumbai.
As an actor, Aftab travels back and forth between Mumbai and London for work and to enjoy time with his family. About this new chapter in his life, Aftab says, “One thing you get very aware of once you have a family is that you have to manage your time really well. It’s all about balancing things well. So, I give my 100 percent to my work when I am in Mumbai, but when I in London I give my 100 percent to my family. I know when I am away they miss me as much as I miss them.”
He added, “It is tough to do this back and forth especially in times of COVID. However, when you think, you realize all parents do the same thing for their family and kids. I must say, you don’t get too much time for yourself when you are raising a child.”
When asked if he and Nin miss spending quality time together with their daughter, he responds yes, “Nin and I had a fantastic life as we traveled a lot. We have done so much together and then finally decided to have a child. It’s not like we feel that we are losing out on something because we have embraced this new phase. It’s the most beautiful phase of my life. We don’t regret that we don’t have time for ourselves. We manage our time and duties well and enjoy the current phase.”
