He was quoted saying, “Yulida and I were in a relationship for a short while, but she got pregnant and we got married. When we got married, she was three months pregnant.

Also she was unable to make friends in Mumbai with the language being the barrier.
Ishq Subhan Allah actor who met Yulida during his professional commitment said, “She’s a nice girl, but cultural differences were some of the reasons for the break-up. She could not settle down in Mumbai due to the language barrier. She did not make many friends and to an extent, that was my mistake, too. I was so busy pursuing my career that I could not give her quality time.”
Holding himself responsible for the split , he said, “She used to feel lonely and missed her family a lot. So, we both felt it was best to separate amicably and live happy lives.”
Talking about their three-year-old son’s custody, he credited his son for the bond Ravi shared with Yulida. Also confirming further, he mentioned their son will stay with his wife and he shall fulfill all the responsibilities required for his future.
