One thing is for sure that this ambitious lady had first started a company in London with her husband Janak Radia. The name of the company was Travel Networks Ltd. The company couldn’t make any impact and had to be closed. Later, she started lots of other companies with Janaak and surprisingly all of them were a failure. She got separated from Janak and come to India in 1995.
Here during a business meeting, she came in contact with Senior Sahara Airlines executive Rao Dheeraj Singh. She got attracted towards Dheeraj and asked him to join her for some business works regarding a hotel. Dheeraj was then married to Anjum. However, soon it became clear to Anjum that Dheeraj is getting closer to Niira. Soon, Dheeraj and Anjum got divorced. That gave free hand to Niira and she called three of her sons from London.
