Shabnam and Kush’s struggle continues

Almost one month ago, Shabnam and Kush lost their son in a tragic stillbirth storyline and, whilst they’ve been off screen for a few weeks, their struggle is still very much ongoing.

Shabnam decides to return to work, however when she sees a baby magazine things quickly become too much, again, and she tears up the product.
