Besides, on the first date, they admitted that they already know each other, but the relationship between them seems to have deteriorated. At the end of the show, they got married, and the show’s maker made it seem like they became life partners only after meeting through this program. But, it seemed it was done to deceive the audience.

Sources revealed both Shilu and K.K. have a keen interest in the art field. Even they went to the same dance class. Not only that, Kiran had a huge role in the making of her first song. Reports say he even assisted her with directing to singing a song. But, the song has already been removed.
Besides, they even went to the shooting for a small glimpse into the music video for a song “Kin Karke Najar Lauchu Yasari’ two years ago. You can see Shilu and K.K. coming as guests at the wedding reception party in the video.

Devendra Pandey, one of the entertaining contestants of a blind date, also seems to be the director’s close friend. They both worked in the same company making comedy shows and music videos.
