Saga addresses rumoured relationship with Nini
However, in an interview, Saga debunked the impression people had, that he was crazily in love with Nini.
He openly confessed that he doesn’t love Nini; adding that they are just friends with no stringed attached.
Asked if he was really head over heels in love with Nini, he said, “Depends on what you mean by love. It’s a word that I’m very careful with. Remember, love is a strong word. We are still friends. We never had that conversation of dating each other and so I never thought about it (dating her).”
On what he thinks of Nini always mentioning that she had a boyfriend, Saga said he never heard her say that, “Between Nini and I, she didn’t need to keep mentioning that she had a boyfriend. Maybe she was having that conversation with other housemates under different circumstances but between her and I, we had that unspoken understanding that she had a boyfriend outside the house. I am pretty sure that I never did anything that made her have to “constantly remind me” that she had a boyfriend outside.”
