Kamal said, "I'm feeling happy. This process concluded after 5 years. Feels great. There weren't many difficulties. Paperwork has to be done for all countries. Pakistan's paperwork isn't much. All countries have similar amount of paperwork. But in this case, it was a bit tough. We met during brother's marriage. We spoke over WhatsApp."
