Namrata described her family's temporary relocation to the United States during Nargis' treatment in an article by Pinkvilla. "Dad was with her from morning to night, every day." He'd feed her and clean her. We sisters would also take turns caring for her. "I'm sure he sobbed in private, but Dad never told us what he was going through," she said.
Namrata also mentioned a little incident involving her mother when she was through chemotherapy. Her mother Nargis couldn't believe she was looking at herself in the mirror while getting ready to go shopping. After several months of chemotherapy, her skin had gone dark she had lost hair. Nargis couldn't believe she was looking at herself.
