A source had revealed to the Times of India:

Ritu ordered for Anup’s itemized mobile bills. Her fears and suspicions came true when she saw the bills, which clearly spelt that Anup was with Juhi over the phone for a large part of the day. Of course, she confronted Juhi. But Juhi told her that she was with Anup only on the phone”.
