Adding how she would never comment negatively about her breakthrough show, Hina said:

“I have that respect and regard. I don't know why is it happening from the other side, time and again. I just don't get it. Not that I would like to talk about it and I don't want to. These guys (makers of Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai) have given me my first break. I have that respect and regard for them. I worked for years but it did not end on a good note. It wasn't like we would not even see each other. But it wasn't that nice, pleasant. That's okay. It happens. Time heals everything. At least, time has healed me completely. I have no objections now.”
