I wrote about Malina and Anoop Bikram Shahi relationship in 2014 when Anoop tattooed her name on his wrist. Their plan to get married failed to materialize and they were quietly separated in 2016. In 2019 Malina was seeing gym trainer and businessman Sushanta Pradhan. There were speculations that they were going to get married soon. But, the relationship ended abruptly and Malina announced the breakup at the end of 2022.
