Benafsha Soonawalla Finally Speaks The Truth About Her Relationship With Priyank Sharma

While people love watching their favourite celebrities on screen, they also have a keen interest in their personal lives. Sometimes fans don’t realise, and they go overboard while peeping into a celeb’s love life and in other cases, the celebrities’ failed relationship becomes the talk of the town if they separate on a bitter note. Something like this happened with MTV’s popular faces and ex-couple from Splitsvilla, Priyank Sharma and Divya Agarwal when the latter had broken up on national television when the former was inside the Bigg Boss 11 house. (Also Read: Shahid Kapoor's First Appearance With Misha-Zain Together As They Leave For Singapore (Pics Inside))

For the ones who don’t know, Priyank and Divya’s relationship went kaput due to his increasing closeness with the co-contestant of the show, Benafsha Soonawalla. Today, Priyank is rumoured to be dating Ben and Divya is in a happy relationship with Ben’s ex-flame, Varun Sood. Ever since all this fiasco happened, Priyank and Ben never accepted being in love with each other.

Now, in an interaction with the IANS recently, when Benafsha was asked about being constantly linked with her 'close friend' and Bigg Boss 11 co-contestant, Priyank Sharma, here’s what she stated, "We are just friends and will always be buddies." Further, when she was asked about acting with Priyank in a show or a movie, she replied, "If there is an offer, why not?" In the same interaction, she also admired VJ-turned-Bollywood actor, Ayushmann Khurrana by stating, "Ayushmann Khurrana is my spirit animal. I want to be as talented, kind and effortlessly hilarious as he is."

Earlier, in an interview with SpotboyE, Priyank expressed his views on reacting to the rumours and his link-ups with any other girl. He was quoted as saying, “You know what! I have just started keeping quiet on all such matters. People keep linking me with some or the other girl. So I would just say: Keep guessing because I have stopped sharing my personal life. Yes, I have made it a question mark for everyone." (Checkout: Priyank Sharma Is Extremely Proud Of Rumoured GF, Benafsha Soonawalla As She Makes Her Singing Debut)

He had further added, "With my past experience, I have realised that I should not talk about my private life. In fact, I was a true believer of this till I did Splitsvilla, where fans got to see my love angle (Divya Agarwal). But other then that, I have never spoke about my personal life. If you see my Roadies audition also, I never revealed my girlfriend's name till the time the fans and media found out.” Further talking about the equation he shares with Ben, Priyank had stated, “Benafsha and me are doing great. The bond between us is very strong. But think of it, main bahut logon ko date kar raha hun logon ke hisaab se.”

Prior to that, when he was asked about his closeness in the Bigg Boss 11 house, he had remarked, “Benafsha and I have a beautiful relationship, we pull each other’s leg. Voh hum masti-mazak karte hain. I know it has been portrayed like she was after me but let me now say it, I love Benafsha Soonawalla more than you love me girl. I have earned her in this show though I know her since beginning.” (Don't Miss: Deepika Padukone Fell Down While Working Out, Hubby Ranveer Singh Replies Naughtily To Her)

And had further defended, “There is nothing wrong with me and Ben. I love Ben. There are certain text messages which I was supposed to (respond to), because she has gone to Thailand as she was not expecting that I will be out of the house. Use pata hota toh wo rukti (If she knew, she would have stayed back). There are absolutely no differences, if she were here, I would have called her here. I love that girl, she loves me back. She is an amazing and a heck of a friend of mine. That’s what it is.”

Divya Agarwal and Priyank Sharma

He had also opened up about his breakup with Divya Agarwal and had stated, “When I got evicted for the first time, Divya and I had discussed that things are not working out between us. And then I went back into the house rather quickly after that, so I feel some questions had remained in her mind. But I have moved on. Perhaps Divya had some things in her mind and she wanted to clear them when she came to the house-  but we couldn't communicate much. Also, we didn't have phones inside, so I couldn't call her after she left. From my side it was always clear that our relationship is over- and I hope that she too is clear about this now and hereafter.” (Do Check: Anita Hassanandani-Rohit Reddy Burn The Dance Floor With Off-Beat Dancing And Lip Lock [VIDEO])

On the other hand, the increasing proximity of Priyank towards Ben didn’t go down well with his then-girlfriend, Divya, who had once revealed, “When Benafsha asked Priyank whether he has been close to any other female friends like the way he is with Benaf, he said ‘No’. I am shocked. So what was he doing with me? Yes, we never stayed together under one roof but the way he wakes up Benaf, looks for her in the morning, treats her, kisses her etc. etc. --- Priyank did the exact same things with me in Spitsvilla.”

While Benafsha and Priyank say something else, their chemistry and mushy pictures reveal a different story, altogether. Well, let’s wait till the alleged lovebirds finally commit their relationship!
