Talking about there relationship, Tina said, the two haven't decided on a wedding date yet, but will announce their engagement "very soon", reported the Time of India.

She also talked about how they met for the first time. We met in the morning and by evening Aamir was at my door. Uske liye pehli nazar mein pyaar ho gaya (For him, it was love at first sight)"....But I thank Aamir every day for his perseverance. He is a wonderful person."

However, Dabi's followers have been congratulating her on the new development. But, there are many who are criticising her. Some were rude enough to make negative comments, while others expressed shock over her marrying a Kashmiri Muslim.

Responding to them Tina said, "We are in love and very happy. But I must admit that I get very disturbed when I read stuff about us. We have stopped googling our names and reading news about ourselves. I think it is a small price to pay for being in the public eye....It's as if I have committed a crime by falling in love with someone who is not the same religion or caste as me. Things do become offensive. I then wonder if I should be active on social media and confront such stuff. But then I tell myself that I don't have to prove anything to anyone."
