Rupali told Behindwoods TV, “I did not give a da** because I don’t know those people. They have seen something that is very un-obvious, for normal people, because they don’t know about it. We will not go and say things, give clarity. It’s okay for them to think like that because they don’t know about it. It didn’t affect me so much because I didn’t read the comments so much. My family knows my truth, My close ones are supporting me. I don’t need any other validation. It doesn’t matter.”

Rupali also shared her equation with Arth: “He’s a very sweet boy. We had a very good conversation, nothing serious, just discussing what he is doing. It was just general talk; it was very normal. He’s a very sweet boy, we met very warmly. It was a short but very nice encounter.” Ashish and Rupali also their second chance at love a ‘blessing.’ He also clarified, “We were not there to prove any point.”
