      In an interview with Hindustan Times, Apurva said about his tweet, "I simply wanted to celebrate a moment like a straight couple. They celebrate birthdays, weddings, their relationships, etc, which is not the case for the LGBTQ+ couples. Moreover, an image of names of two men on a name plate is rare. I didn't know the tweet would go viral. Sid and I are family and have the blessings of our families. I felt that the world should know that LGBTQ+ are not about boys and girls just having fun but we are about family, too."

      He added that people have been very supportive and loving that they are humbled. He said that they are still some people who are scared or don't understand homosexuality and send negative comments.

      He continued, "I am a film editor and a screenwriter, and I am known to people in the film circle and not others. So, while renting apartments one would hope the landlord didn't know me, so it would help us get the house. Though, I was never afraid that they would find out later. But we have been thrown out of apartments when people realized that we were two guys living together. We didn't want to worry about such things so we bought a place. I also wanted to inspire others from the LGBTQ+ community to go ahead and realize their dreams."
