Immigrant Father; Parents' Details
The daughter of Indian parents, Babita was born in 1977 in Reading, Berkshire. Babita, who ages 41, has not disclosed her exact birthday.
Her father was born in a place called Sialkot which is now located in Pakistan and was forced to move to Delhi along with his parents at the age of four when the India-Pakistan partition took place in 1947.
Babita, who traveled to Pakistan before hosting the 2017 BBC series Dangerous Borders: A Journey across Indian & Pakistan, talked about the stories of violence she had earlier heard from her father.
In an interview with History Extra, Babita mentioned that although her father's family had thought the violence would end once they reached Delhi, more conflicts soon followed in Delhi as the war between the Hindu and Muslim continued even in India's capital.
Babita's parents are now settled in England and run a retail shop for a living. On 18 December 2016, she shared a picture along with her father and mother at their corner shop.
