Not separated because of Pooja Bhatt or any girl

Breakup was painful

But after this there is also the hilink process which happens when the surgery is in healthy environment. And the more honest you are apart, the sooner you heal. Time proves to be like a balm that fills every wound and the strength comes from within. ‘
Said- This is my most sensitive decision

Went to USA for 15 days, took this decision there
He told, ‘I went to USA for 15 days for a charity event, but this trip gave me a lot of time to think and understand about my life. I thought about my past, present and got upset seeing Future.

‘Nothing in my mind against Sunny’
Talking about the reaction of Bobby’s family, Neelam had said, ‘To be honest, I did not know what his feeling was. I did not hear anything about it. We were shooting for Papa’s World in 1998. I had very good bonding with him and I never talked about it. My relation with him remained the same. He used to like me a lot and he liked me a lot. I have nothing against Sunny.
The two parents never met
Did Dharmendra or Prakash Kaur say anything to Bobby?
