    In a 2010 report by mid-day, a source had revealed, "Himesh has been seeing Sonia for more than four years now. After her father's recent death, they've grown closer. She has been a frequent visitor to their Lokhandwala flat -- something that upset his wife and his son initially but now they seem to have resigned themselves to it."

    The source added, "Himesh and Sonia even go on holidays together. On New Year's Eve, they'd gone to Sri Lanka. He also takes care of all her expenses and has been recommending her to all his producer and director friends. He has one strong supporter in his family -- his dad Vipin Reshammiya. He hopes that Sonia's constant presence at is home will lead to his family gradually accepting her."

    Responding to the report, Himesh Reshammiya told mid-day, "Sonia and my family have been close for over 12 years. After her father's demise, our families have bonded even more. There is no stress between my wife and her. In fact, we all hang out as one group of friends. For holidays, too, both the families go together. For the Sri Lankan holiday, it wasn't just her and me but our families as well. Komal and Swaym -- or anyone in the family for that matter -- has no objection to Sonia coming home at all. We are like one big family. I often go to Sonia's home. No one has any objections. I haven't been financing her expenses or recommending her. She is doing her own thing and is busy with her own serials."

    Talking about her equation with Sonia Kapoor, Komal had said, "There are compatibility issues in our marriage but we respect each other immensely. Nobody else should be dragged into this matter and nobody else is responsible for this and the reason for our marriage not working is only and only compatibility.
