In an interview with ETimes, Mandana Karimi's ex-brother-in-law and popular television actor, Gautam Gupta, opened up about all the allegations his ex-bhabi had made against his brother, Gaurav Gupta and his family. The actor stated that he didn't want to disclose all the terrible things Mandana had done to his brother and their family after marriage. Gautam explained that he didn't want to turn his family's personal conflicts into a public drama. Hence, he prefers to remain silent. He said:
"If we talk about the things she has done after her marriage with my brother Gaurav. But we don't want to make our family into a drama. Why react when people talk only about abuse and accusations?"
Going further in the interview, when Gautam Gupta was asked to react to the things and accusations his ex-sister-in-law, Mandana Karimi, had made against his mother in the media.

The actress had shockingly revealed that she had to do an abortion because the director had tricked her. Now, Gautam shared his reaction on the same and said:
"Gaurav wouldn't care a damn about her, now. She's stupid. Aisa bolne se usko aage taqleef hogi zindagi mein. People will laugh at her. Does one play a game in a show like this? Frankly, for us, she is inconsequential."
At the end of his conversation, Gautam Gupta also opened up about his brother, Gaurav Gupta's marriage plans and admitted that his brother is all set to tie the knot once again. However, he added that his brother is fully-concentrated on his work. Reflecting on his brother, Gaurav's decision of tying the knot for the second time, Gautam said:
"Yes, he might- but we'll decide that when the time is right. Right now, we are concentrating on work."
