His decision to confess his love at a platform-funded by the state government garnered a lot of criticism following which he lent his apology.

"I studied in Mysuru and this is a special place for me. It is an auspicious period and the event had the presence of family members from both the sides. I wanted to put an end to all the rumours surrounding us and surprise our family members. So, announced about my love at Yuva Dasara," he apologised.
