At the wedding function, the couple invited top politicians, senior bureaucrats, and VVIPs. During the ceremony, very few family members were present on the spot. The wedding venue was decided on Jaipur.
Tina married Pradeep as per the Marathi Rajasthani customs as Pradeep comes from a Marathi background. Notably, Tina’s mother is also a Marathi and her father a Rajasthani. This is the reason that the wedding rituals were a mix of Marathi and Rajasthani traditions, according to the sources.
It is important to note that this is Tina’s second marriage. Tina was first married to Athar Aamir Ul Shafi Khan. Khan is an IAS officer of the same batch of Tina from Kashmir.
Later in 2021, the duo divorced in a family court in Jaipur.
On the work front, Tina is currently posted at the finance department of Rajasthan. Her husband Pradeep is currently serving as the Director of the Department of Archaeology and Museum, Rajasthan.
They met last year during the time of Covid-19.
