Both flew to London earlier this month to complete their final leg of IAS training programme before taking charge of their respective cadres as civil servants. Tina in particular kept her fans, nearly 1.5 lakh of them, abreast of her goings on from the British capital. While in London, she also made it a point to shut up a troll, who criticised her for enjoying a foreign trip at the expense of taspayers’ money.

Tina returned to Lal Bahadur Shastri National Academy of Administration in Mussoorie in Uttarakhand, to complete the last few days of her stay there. On Thursday, the affable IAS topper posted a series of photos and videos of their cultural performance at the LBSNAA to mark the culmination of their training programme.

The cultural programme included a group song ‘hum rahe ya na rahe per yaad aayenge ye pal,’  a group dance from Behen Hogi Teri track Jaanu Meri Jaan and a performance by Tina and hubby Aamir on a lungi dance to a Telugu song. While Tina has posted the videos of other two performances, she did not post the video of her owndance performance. However, she did post the photos of herself with Aamir, both attired in red printed south Indian lungi and white shirts. Both looked no less than film stars in their new attire.

Recently, when Tina tied the knot to sweetheart and fellow topper Athar Aamir-ul Shafi Khan, the celebrations had lasted for several days as the couple travelled to Delhi, where they hosted a lavish reception. The guests who attended the reception in the national capital had included Vice President Venkaiah Naidu and many senior functionaries of the central government.


  1. Why is she and her husband in news … ??? What’s so great abt her ? Why is she occupying space in digital media ? Why are people making her a celebrity?

  2. Shame that the orientation of Indian bureaucrats at entry level has reached such a low trough that Lungi Dance is being performed in a foreign country. It may well be imagined what they would offer to our country in future years.

  3. Truly unworthy of media mention. JKR though must promote Hindu girls in inter-religious marriages!
    Things change when Hindu men marry Muslim women & are slaughtered by ROP.

  4. There are so many toppers and committed IAS officers in our country. I think this is the only topper who is doing/feeling/behaving like a movie artist. people have some respect for the civil servants in our country, please don’t ruin it madam. It’s better to focus on your work for the betterment of society instead of sharing your private pics and parties on social media..

  5. This janta ka reporter is making Tina a hero out nothing … passing exam don’t garaunte performance in real life…u should focus on officers who are working n report their good work rather than reporting all this mirch masala..what a sham

  6. Stop following them and don’t give much importance. JKR, don’t you have anything gele to show. What a disgrace to media. Why to give them so much importance is it because of inter-faith marriage? “Kaam karne do unhe” jiske liye inhe appoint kiya gaya hai….Stop making them celebrity. They are just normal human beings. They should start working for the nation now and keep their personal life personal.
