In the family week, both Shalin and Tina's mothers advised them to focus on their respective games and not to fall for each other.
In a conversation with India Today, Sunita Bhanot talked about her son's equation with Tina, and said, “As a viewer, we can feel that, from Shalin's end, it was never for the camera. Many a time, apne ko peeche karke, support kiya hai (He has supported his friends by keeping himself behind). This is the beauty of their equation. Dosti ek bohot khoobsurat rishta hota hain aur usne dosti nibhaayi hain. (Friendship is a very beautiful bond, he has done his best to keep his friendship alive). It is not done if viewers give it a tag of love angle.”
She continued further and said, “When we stay together in an institute, toh dosti hoti hain. You can't survive alone in this world. You need someone or another. Sometimes, kisi ke saath friendship zyada hoti hain kisi ke saath kam hoti hain But use relationship ya rishta, aise tags ke saath judge nahi kiya jaa sakta. (We are closer to someone in friendship than another, but we cannot give it a tag of relationship). It is too soon to be giving any name to their equation. ”
