They first met on the show two years ago and hit it off instantly. The spark of love was kindled and marriage followed suit. They tied the knot as per 'Gandharva Vivaah' (when a man and a woman marry without the consent of their family) in May, 2009. Tina and Mahesh moved in together along with her mother visiting them regularly. They successfully hid their marriage. However, the actress moved out at her mother's insistence and started staying with her in the same building since January, 2011. Apparently, her mother who was happy with her daughter's choice back then, doesn't want the word on her marriage to reach the industry people now. The situation currently is that her mother is not in favour of the relationship. Since, it's a Gandharva marriage and not a court marriage, Tina's mom now wants the two to separate. The bone of contention is that Mahesh is trying to start his own production company after leaving a secure job with a well-known production house. Tina's mother is worried about her daughter's future with him as he is not settled yet. However, the actress's heart still beats for him.
Tina and Mahesh confirmed that its just rumour nothing else, but both has been spotted frequenting malls and theatres together.
