Becoming the face of this latest love story, Khushhal’s views about relationships in real life are also every bit as romantic as the characters he plays. While the young actor was a guest on a local network show hosted by Imran Ashraf, he offered some interesting insights about love, marriage, and his current relationship status.

When questioned about one-sided love, Khushhal took a decidedly romantic stance. "It's a beautiful thing," he declared.  He elaborated on his unique perspective, suggesting that the beauty lies in the control it offers. "Because you have all the power in that," he explained. "You create your own perception about how that person is. It's in your own mind as a beautiful image. It's not dependent on the response from the other end. You're at peace in your own mind."

Intrigued by his perspective on one-sided love, the interviewer pressed further, asking if Khushhal had ever personally experienced either falling for someone or having someone fall for him. His answer surprised some: "No," he admitted,  "I am just in love with my work."  It seems his dedication to his craft currently occupies the space some might expect to be filled with romantic pursuits.
