Talking about the reason behind the divorce, Roy revealed that she couldn’t adjust to her ex-husband’s lifestyle. She mentions how the Pakistani cricketer wanted to settle down in London and take-up British citizenship. However she wasn’t ready for it, the cricketer had then gone on to keep their daughter away from her so that as a desperate mother yearning for her kid, she would follow them to London and settle down there. 

She further revealed that even though the couple separated on a bitter note, Mohsin is a great father to their daughter. Reena shares that the father-daughter share a very close bond with each other. She said, “He’s in touch with her. They share a close father-daughter bond. He’s settled well in life. I pray that God keeps him healthy and happy.”

I am getting offers. I would like to work in regional films too from Punjabi to Tamil, Telugu, I want to work on everything.”
