I don't really care about her winning as I wanted to win. I don't believe in making someone a loser to win. I just believe in winning.""Aesa nahi tha ki mujhe Karan Kundrra ko harana tha ya Tejasswi ko harana tha. I just believed in winning the show... I didn't know what was happening but when I came out I saw so much love. That's when I realised that I have already won the show."
Talking about people being upset about Tejasswi's win, Pratik said: "Sometimes what happens in a show is that somebody else wins the trophy but someone else wins over love and heart.

I genuinely appreciate it. It doesn't matter...It's their (audience's) choice who they are happy with and who they are not.
