There’s something about celebrity couples that make us believe in fairytale romance. Their sizzling chemistry, mushy moments and cute notes that they often share on social media melt our hearts. And when they appear together in interviews and reality shows? We can’t help but root for them and their dreamy love story.
But, as much as we like to see these couples together, sometimes they teach us that nothing lasts forever. Ouch, even reading that hurts! Though that doesn’t change the fact that a lot of relationships come to an end, and several celebrities part ways after years of togetherness. NGL, our hearts break when their hearts break. And, in the past few years, we have come across several split-ups in the television industry that have left us devastated. These TV actors dated for years, many even fell for each other on the set of their shows, and some of them even said ‘I Do‘ before deciding to call it quits. Read on to know about all those television couples whose breakups crushed us completely.
Here are some of the most loved television couples whose separation left us in utter shock and disappointment.
Asha Negi and Rithvik Dhanjani’s love bloomed on the set of their show Pavitra Rishta. Their fans started rooting for this adorable couple and they became the ultimate #CoupleGoals when they took home Nach Baliye 6 trophy in 2014. However, the actress announced thier split in 2020. She said during an interview with a leading daily that she had nothing but love for her former partner.
She said, “All I want to say is that we are trying our best at whatever place we are now and in whatever state we are in our lives. To give our best and both are working on themselves. I can say from my side that I do not have any hard feelings about Rithvik. I am sure there will be no hard feelings from Rithvik either. All this is a very personal thing for me but I would just like to say that in my heart there is only and only love for Rithvik.”
Another couple who had won our hearts in Nach Baliye 3 was Aamir Ali and Sanjeeda Sheikh. The couple made their relationship official in 2003 and tied the knot in a beautiful ceremony in 2012. Their fans are still shocked by the fact that the two have called it quits. While they have not finalised their divorce yet, they are living separately.
Raqesh Bapat and Ridhi Dogra met on the set of their daily soap, Maryada and soon fell head over heels for each other. TBH, we did too! They later got hitched in 2011 before separating in 2019. While talking about her divorce, the actress said to a leading daily that with time, they decided to part ways. She said, “Sometimes there is no reason. Over a period of seven years you get to know how someone fits into your life. So there is no specific reason that I can point out to. The vibes sometimes just don’t work. We still love each other, it’s just that the definition of love, in our case, has changed now.”
Rashami Desai and Nandish Sandhu were defs one of the most loved couples of the telly industry. They met on the set of Utaran and later appeared on shows like Nach Baliye and Khatron Ke Khiladi. They tied the knot in 2012 and filed for a divorce in 2016, leaving their fans heartbroken. While talking about it recently, the actress said, “During my divorce, that entire period, I was going through depression. I never wanted it to happen. I never wanted a separation from the person I loved the most and I could say more than myself. I tried my level best. When it did not work out, I realised that it’s fine. I was the first person who said, ‘I want a divorce, I can’t be in this relationship.'”
Bigg Boss 5 winner Juhi Parmar and her former husband Sachin Shroff looked adorable together. NGL, I rooted for them when they appeared in Nach Baliye 3. They were married for almost a decade before announcing their split in 2018.
Pooja Gor and Raj Singh Arora began their love story on the set of a horror series called Koi Aane Ko Hai in 2009. While their fans were eagerly waiting for their wedding, they got a major shock instead when the actress announced her breakup last year. She shared a heartfelt note on her ‘Gram and said, “Raj and I have decided to part ways. Even though life may lead us on different paths. The love and respect, we have for each other are for a lifetime. I will always wish the best for him as he has been a very important influence in my life. And I will always be grateful to him. We continue to be friends and that will never change. It has taken a good amount of time and courage for me to talk about this. And this is all I want to say for now. Thank you for understanding and respecting our privacy at this time.”
Many hearts were broken when Love School 2 professors announced that they were no longer in a relationship after dating for almost 6 years. While the VJ hinted that her former partner cheated on her, Karan Kundra stated that he was still not over his breakup.
NGL, some of these breakups crushed our hearts all over again. But, we gotta say that we have taken major inspo from these actors to move on in life despite all odds.
