Pavitra was quoted as saying, “Both Eijaz and my family know about us. His father, brother, and extended family everyone know because they watched us on television. My family is aware, my brother knows he stays with me so he meets Eijaz. My extended family is also aware of Eijaz. I think if there would have been any problem we would have learnt about it. But with God’s grace, there has been no such issue. Everyone is advising us to go slowly, know each other well and take time.” Also Read - Pavitra Rishta Season 2 Soon: Ankita Lokhande To Return As Archana, Hunt For Manav Underway
She added that her father has in fact asked her to have a live-in relationship so that she gets to know Eijaz better and they can take enough time to figure out their next step in a relationship. Pavitra said Eijaz too want their relationship to go slow so that they can savour every aspect of it.
“My mom is a little worried because it is a different culture completely. So my mother keeps telling me to first know each other well and understand each other. On the other hand, my father is very chilled out, he is like a live-in, I don’t mind, but before taking that big step, know each other well and be sure if you want to spend the rest of your life together. Eijaz is also of the same mindset because he also knows that the religion is different. Everyone is happy about our relationship but they want us to go slow,” she explained.
During their Bigg Boss 14 journey, it was Pavitra who made the first move when Eijaz rejected the possibility of any relationship. However, later, as Pavitra got eliminated, Eijaz started missing her in the house and the day they met, they expressed their feelings for each other in a special episode in the show.
