We contacted both Nia and Kushal to know how they were reacting to this controversial story. Both denied the legitimacy of the story. Kushal smsed us, "I can just laugh over these stupid articles. Surprisingly so much is getting written about me in the past few days makes me suddenly feel like a star but jokes apart people who write such articles should at least think once that it involves a girl's reputation. If we talk about responsible journalism, I wonder how responsible this is."
Nia's feedback was, "I am not at all hurt or sad. I rather pity that cheap reporter who wrote such vulgar stuff. I have blacklisted her from my list, she is never going to get a single quote from me. Kushal and I are great friends and will always remain that way."
Nia has always been full of praise for her co-star Kushal but has always told the media that they are simply friends. We checked with Nia's close friend who said that Nia and Kushal aren't romantically involved.
