Vanita said that the late actor loved her very much and shared everything with her.
Speaking to ANI, Tunisha's mother had said, "I do not need to explain to anyone what relationship I shared with Tunisha. Tunisha was my daughter, she was the closest to me. She loved me very much. Even she used to sleep with me and used to share everything with me." Tunisha's mother also referred to the actor's audio to state that both of them loved each other.
