In a candid interview, Pakistani actor Imran Ashraf recently opened up about being a single father. The renowned celeb, who was formerly married to actor and model Kiran Ashfaque, said that despite personal challenges, he has a positive relationship with his ex-wife.

During a recent appearance on the talk show Khabar, Imran was asked about raising his son in today’s world, to which he responded by sharing his approach to making his son a central part of his life, including bringing Roham to film sets. This has fostered a strong bond between them, and Imran described the experience of caring for his son as natural and fulfilling.

“He meets his mother when he wants to, of course. This is a very distressing situation which is being handled with love. My son is very happy on account of both his parents. He is my prince,” Imran beamed. “All I’ll say is that this (raising a child) isn’t hard. What’s more precious than your own child?” The actor furthered, “God has given me everything I have ever asked for. Even my career. So when you have such a lovely child like I do, what more could I ask for?”

Imran emphasised that both of them remain committed to co-parenting their son, Roham. As per the actor, his primary focus is on ensuring that Roham grows up with a healthy perspective on both his parents. He highlighted his dedication to being a good father, stating, “I answer all of Roham’s questions with honesty, show him affection and care, and avoid any behavior that could be harmful or unethical.”

Imran and Kiran announced their separation in October 2022 after four years of marriage. In their public statement, they expressed their intention to co-parent Roham and requested privacy during the difficult transition. Despite the end of their marital relationship, their mutual respect and commitment to their son remain evident.
