You know there’s a website called India Forums. They have been handling Nandish’s PR and I don’t have a problem but they have been giving one-sided stories from Nandish’s end. I have never felt the need to explain myself or my relationship to anyone – but there are all sorts of rumors that pinpoint me and clai that Nandish is completely innocent.”
