During an interview with Filmfare in 2001, Bobby Deol mentioned the strained relationship he had with Tina (Twinkle Khanna) during the production of Barsaat. He recalled frequent confrontations, attributing them to trivial matters such as arguments about morning routines and the importance of cleanliness. Additionally, he noticed her discomfort with using certain language, which he found amusing.
Bobby recalled an incident during the shooting of Barsaat when Twinkle fainted on the set, which led to a temporary halt to the shoot due to scarce oxygen supply in Rohtang Pass near Manali. He recounted the day of the film's premiere, mentioning how they traveled together in the same car and how nervous he was. Despite his anxiety, he held Twinkle's hand throughout the journey. However, he was surprised to hear her using profanity after her debut. This contrasted with his previous disapproval of such language during filming. When he pointed this out to her, she just laughed.

Twinkle and Bobby Deol eventually reconciled their differences after the film. At the time of this interview, Bobby had already worked with Akshay Kumar, who was married to Twinkle at that time. Reflecting on their past conflicts, Bobby mentioned how they now laugh about their past disagreements. He recounted a recent encounter with Twinkle during the shooting of Ajnabee on a cruise, where they had a lot of fun together. Bobby was amused when the media speculated about them sunbathing together and suggested Akshay keep an eye on them. He clarified that he has never undressed in public, dismissing rumors about sunbathing. Bobby expressed happiness to see Twinkle happily married.
