In the words of James Caan himself,

When she came into the office for an interview - attractive, feisty and well-educated - she was very different to other Muslim girls I’d met, and I was captivated.

The trouble was, when I offered her a job, she turned it down and said she had decided she was going to pursue her dream of opening a boutique instead and desperate not to lose touch with her, I offered to invest in her business, even though I had no savings.

And after they started their business together, at the age of 21, Caan proposed Aisha and she accepted.

Their marriage took place on New Year’s Day 1983. In 32 years of their marriage, they have two beautiful daughters, Hannah and Jemma. However, the couple has gone their separate ways after three decades together.
