The Woman's Husband Came To Know & There Was 'Fisticuffs'
Emraan said that the woman's husband got to know about their affair and a showdown was inevitable. He added, "We had even come to fisticuffs. But common friends intervened and the issue was sorted out before things took an ugly turn.
A Lesson Learnt

Cut to present, Emraan is happily married to Parveen and the couple has a son named Ayaan.
