On the other hand, Shivani Jha, who is currently seen in Bhagyalakshmi talked about what she loves about Leenesh and added:

"The first thing I liked about Leenesh was his punctuality. He always reported on time for the shooting of Brahmarakshas. I feel punctuality is very important in a man. Secondly, he is extremely caring, friendly and loving - again all qualities that I would look for in my partner. We work out regularly together so that we can gorge on good food on our cheat days. While Leenesh enjoys Mughlai cuisine, I enjoy Chinese. So, we are always finding out biryani places and interesting Chinese eateries in Mumbai."
