Tina had topped the UPSC exams in 2016 by securing the all India number one rank, while Athar being placed at number two the same year. They fell in love with each other during their training at the prestigious Lal Bahadur Shastri National Academy of Administration in Mussoorie in Uttarakhand.

Both of them had also travelled to London as part of their training. Several high profile personalities including ministers from the Indian government and Vice President Venkaiah Naidu had attended their wedding in 2018.

Tina had proudly added Khan in her surname and changed her Instagram bio to declare herself as a Kashmiri bahu. However, she dropped Khan from her surname in 2020 and removed ‘Kashmiri bahu’ reference from Instagram bio. This had led to both unfollowing each other on Instagram.
