In addition, it was revealed e Roy has been in constant contact with Khan for the past ten years except for the period when the family first contracted the coronavirus.
“Ten years ago I was still in contact with Wasu until my whole family got Corona,” he said. It was added, Roy revealed that after talking to Khan, the latter said that he did not want to disturb the singer. “He didn’t call me, he said he didn’t want to bother me anymore and wanted help from the government.
