The truth

About their dating scenario

Munmun and Raj had given their individual reactions on Instagram when their dating rumours surfaced in 2021. Raj took to his handle and wrote, "To everyone, who has been constantly writing about me, THINK of the repercussions that can happen in my life because of your 'COOKED UP' (false) stories and that too about my life without my consent. All the creative people out there please channel your creativity somewhere else it will be helpful to you. May God bless them with good sense."

Munmun had written on Instagram, "13 years of entertaining people and it didn't take 13 minutes for any of you to rip my dignity apart. So next time someone is clinically depressed or driven to take their own life, pause and think whether it was YOUR WORDS that drove that person to the edge or not. Today, I am ashamed of calling myself a daughter of India."
