Underling his equation with the actress, the YouTuber remarked, "I don't know if its right to say or not because I woke up one day and I saw ki maine toh unfollow nahi kiya, unfollow ho gaya (that I didn't unfollow, it just happened)."

"Ab pata nahi kaise hua. Unhone kara, kya hua (I don't know how it all happened; she unfollowed or what), but we don't talk a lot," he added.
