Affan began it with his childhood memories, his hobbies, and how he had developed a fear of losing because of being constantly on the move owing to his father’s job. He talks about the strong bond he shares with his family and the way they have been a support system for him in every difficult situation. While talking about his love life and marriage, Affan also shares about the period of depression that he went through after he got divorced some time back and how he coped up with it.

The Do Bol star, who has got a vibrant smile, talks in detail about the time he had undergone severe depression after he parted ways with his wife. He shares that the divorce didn’t come easy on him and he used to cry a lot and scream whenever he was alone in the room. His life had come to a standstill and he had stopped working for dramas at that time. He says that while he does not like crying in front of anyone, during this period, he felt like crying and talking his heart out. Affan said that he couldn’t figure out why he was constantly sad and low but he termed it as depression.
