’90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way’: Fans React to Jenny’s Explosive Argument With Sumit’s Parents
Sumit’s brother and sister-in-law push him to talk to his parents
On an earlier episode of 90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way, Sumit’s brother Amit, and sister-in-law, Shree, stopped by for a visit. And when Jenny announced her plans to get engaged, the couple insisted Sumit tell his parents first.
“It’s better we tell the parents after we are engaged,” Sumit responded. “Because now we can show the commitment that we are engaged and now we are serious about it.”
But Amit and Shree warned Sumit that if he got engaged without informing his parents, they’d likely disown him. So, despite Jenny’s reluctance, Sumit decided to postpone the ring ceremony and invite his mom and dad over for a chat.
“I’m feeling a lot of anxiety and fear about their visit,” Jenny told producers. “It’s going to be really hard. And I just hope this turns out for the best. I hope nobody gets hurt. And I just hope we can still be together and fulfill our dreams. Obviously, the parents are never going to go away so let’s just deal with the parents.”

While Sumit hung on to hope that his parents, Anil and Sahna, would give him their blessing to marry Jenny, they came intending to take him back home. As soon as they sat down across from Jenny, the couple asked Sumit to leave her.
But when Sumit told them that he loved Jenny and announced his plans to get married, they pushed back even harder. “You’ll have to go over our dead bodies,” Sahna exclaimed. “The day you get married, remember this, we will be dead.”
“I love your son,” Jenny responded. “And I’m not leaving him again.”
Sumit abruptly shoved everything off his coffee table, fell to his knees, and begged his mom to understand. But after seeing the situation escalate, Jenny left the room.
“I cannot do this to this family,” she said. “I need to just go back to America.”
’90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way’ fans react to the explosive argument
After watching Sumit and Jenny’s heated exchange with Sahna and Anil, some 90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way viewers called Sumit out for overacting. A few fans even suggested he was dramatic to land a break in Bollywood.
“Looking back at this episode the and other one when Sumit argues with his parents,” one Reddit user shared. “I gotta say Sumit is so extra because he acts like he’s in a bad Bollywood movie or sitcom and trying to protect Jenny like Romeo and Juliet.”
“I have been telling people that somewhere in the back of his mind he is secretly playing an angry Bollywood icon, hoping for Bollywood producers to cast him in a real movie,” another Redditor wrote. “He has definitely gotten used to the camera, lights action!”
But others felt like the drama was real. And they pointed out that Sahna’s anger seemed utterly genuine.
“His parents arguing with him felt real,” one Reddit fan noted. “Like his mom’s body language said it all. I feel like that was one of the realest scenes ever featured on this show.”
“I think the drama was absolutely real,” another Redditor added. “The anger and fury practically bounced off my television screen.”
Viewers will get to see how the argument ended on the next installment. New episodes of 90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way air Sunday nights on TLC.
