His hot-headed and reckless behavior causes him to hurt the feelings of his romantic interest, Saumya who later breaks up with him, moving to Australia for studies. He later gets involved with ACP Bhavya who has been introduced in the series as his new love interest and he does the same thing with her, first teasing her regarding their age difference and then, emotionally hurting her after he mistakes her to have married her colleague Manav; hence putting their relationship at a stake. However, Saumya, having returned from Australia, volunteers to fix Rudra-Bhavya’s broken relationship, and even manages to make Bhavya meet Rudra for one last time by apologizing on his part. Rudra finally whole-heartedly confesses love for Bhavya and proposes to her for marriage, to which she agrees, Bhavya’s husband (2016-present)

Later Gauri, disguised as a man, “Chulbul” and served as a domestic help to Omkara and was chiefly responsible for unveiling evil Svetlana’s secret and throwing her out of the Oberoi Mansion. After her disguise was revealed (during the time she finally got rid of Kaali Thakur), Omkara hated her even more, always ending up hurting her.

After the Sultan-track (the mystery of which has yet not been uncovered) gets scripted out of the series, Rudra lets go of Bhavya’s previous lies to him; and they mutually enter into a relationship upon realizing their lingering feelings for each other. But again Rudra’s antics and their ugly spat regarding their age difference (Bhavya being four years senior to the 24 years old Rudra) leads Bhavya to end things up.
