Further, in the same interview, Vijaypat Singhania reacted to the media reports, speculating that all is well between him and his son, Gautam Singhania. Vijaypat admitted that his picture with Gautam had an 'interior motive', and the latter wanted to send a strong message to the media. However, Vijaypat confirmed that the feud and differences between him and his son are still the same and that all the reconciling reports are false. He stated:

"I went most reluctantly, not realising that it was for an interior motive of taking my photograph with Gautam Singhania to send a strong message to the media. A few minutes later, I came down and left for the airport. Soon after, I started receiving messages with my photo with Gautam on the Internet, claiming Gautam and I had made up, which was completely false."

During the conversation with India Today, Vijaypat Singhania stated that although he doesn't know what was his son, Gautam Singhania's purpose behind asking him to pose for a photo, but one thing was sure that it wasn't for mending the ways between them. The disappointed father further added that he had entered JK House for the first time in the last 10 years, and now that his son, Gautam's purpose to have a picture with him is completed, he doesn't think he will ever enter inside his house again. Vijaypat Singhania said:

"I don't know what his real motive was, but it was certainly not for coffee not to resolve our differences. The fact is, it is the first time in 10 years that I have ever entered JK House and I don't think I'm going to have to enter it again."
