#1. Divya Agarwal and Varun Sood



Divya Agarwal and Varun Sood were the ideal couple in the television industry. Varun and Divya were so settled, that they had also finalised to buy their dream house together. After staying in a relationship for years, the actress announced the heartbreaking news of their separation through her Instagram handle on March 2022. In an interview with India Today, the actress revealed the reason behind her separation  from Varun. She had said:

“I could not see my future with Varun, and hence I decided to end the relationship on a good note. It was my decision to put the news of our breakup on social media and I received a lot of flak for my decision. I used to get abused but I chose to ignore it as my inner peace is what matters.”


In December 2022, Divya announced her sudden engagement with a Mumbai-based entrepreneur and restaurateur, Apurva Padgaonkar. It had been only nine months in December 2022, since she broke up with her ex-boyfriend, Varun Sood, but Divya claimed to have known Apurva for the last seven years.

#2. Disha Patani and Tiger Shroff



Disha Patani and Tiger Shroff were the perfect fit for each other. Apart from being the hottest jodi, they also loved fitness to the core. Tiger and Disha had been dating for many years, but in 2022, rumours of their separation started to make rounds on the internet. Since then, we also have not spotted them together yet. 


In Koffee With Karan 7, Tiger had called the actress his ‘friend’ and also confirmed that he has been single lately. On the other hand, Disha also started to hang out with her rumoured boyfriend and model, Aleksandar Alex Ilic. Not only this, but she also posts mushy pictures with Aleksandar on her IG and keeps teasing her fans. 

#3. Ieshaan Sehgaal and Meisha Iyer


Ieshaan Sehgaal and Meisha Iyer had met on the sets of Bigg Boss 15. And within a day or two of starting a conversation, they fell in love. Their fast-paced love story was brutally trolled by the contestants of the show. But without paying any heed to others, Ieshaan and Meisha continued their relationship even outside the Bigg Boss house. 


However, their paradise didn’t last for long. They, unfortunately, broke up in August 2022. In an old interview with Hindustan Times, Ieshaan admitted that they were not meant for each other. Moreover, he said that the show’s format was different, so he was very much invested in the relationship. However, the real world had something else on the plate for them. He had said:

"Yes it's (reports about his breakup with Miesha) true, we have broken up. It's been quite some time. Things were not working out. I think we were not meant to be (together). It wasn't something which would have worked out honestly. She wanted different things from life and so did I. The circumstances of the show were very different. I was very much invested in the relationship. When we came out and entered the real world, it was very much different from what we were facing inside the house. I think it is good that we broke up."

#4. Sushmita Sen and Lalit Modi


Sushmita Sen and Lalit Modi’s relationship might be the most controversial relationship of the year 2022. Lalit, a billionaire, fell in love with the former Miss Universe, Sushmita. They shared a 12 years age gap, which became a common headline in several tabloids. Even in the 21st century, people found their compatibility a mismatch. 


Taking to his IG feed on July 14, 2022, Lalit had posted lovey-dovey pictures with Sushmita, announcing their togetherness. Little did he know about the flak he would face on the internet. Soon, a slight change in his bio triggered the rumour mills to jump to the conclusion that they broke up. The change in question lies in Lalit’s formerly written bio, “Finally starting a new life with my partner in crime, my love @sushmitasen47,” which has since been dropped, followed by the reappearance of Sushmita Sen’s ex-boyfriend, Rohman Shawl in her daughter’s 23rd birthday.

#5. Shraddha Kapoor and Rohan Shrestha


Shraddha Kapoor was reportedly dating her childhood friend, Rohan Shrestha. Their families also shared a close bond. Though Shraddha and Rohan never announced their relationship publicly, their often date nights in the city were enough for the media to weave a story.


But unfortunately, after dating for four years, they called it quits in February 2022. In an interview with ETimes, Rohan had reacted to his breakup with the Aashiqui 2 actress and had said:

“I don't talk about my personal life. I have never done it before either."

#6. Prateek Kuhad and Niharika Thakur

Whether it’s about recovering from heartbreak or setting a romantic mood, singer, Prateek has become a household name for it. If you know the singer well, you may have seen him posing with Niharika Thakur in many of his Instagram photos. 


They were the most-loved couple in the music industry. From posting lovey-dovey pictures to writing long and cute captions, they did all. However, Prateek and Niharika’s love story ended in 2022. In an interview with the Hindustan Times, Prateek opened up about his breakup with Niharika and said that things between them had ended completely. He had said:

“No, I am not (in a relationship). I have not been really vocal about it for a while. Some people still think (I’m in a relationship), but I have not been in a relationship for a little while now. Things ended some time ago.” 

#7. Shamita Shetty and Raqesh Bapat


Shamita Shetty is the beautiful younger sister of Bollywood diva, Shilpa Shetty. Shamita is known for her peppy dance numbers, chic fashion and beautiful body. She had met with Raqesh Bapat on the sets of Bigg Boss OTT. And the fact that Raqesh was married to actress, Riddhi Dogra for seven years in the past did not stop Shamita from falling in love with him. They came out from the game show together and later shared screen on Bigg Boss 15 as well. Their huge fanbase used to call them ‘ShaRa’.


However, things went wrong, and the couple parted ways in July 2022. Earlier, Shamita had also jetted to Pune to meet Raqesh’s parents. After this, fans were excited about their marriage. However, Shamita and Raqesh launched music together for their fans but confirmed that they were no longer together. Taking to her IG handle, Shamita had penned:

“I think it's important to make this clear. Raqesh and I are no longer together and have not been for a while, but this music video is for all the beautiful fans who have given us so much love n support.”

#8. Ishaan Khatter and Ananya Panday


Besides her acting stint and sartorial fashion trends, Ananya Panday often grabbed the spotlight for her alleged love life. For quite some time, there had been rumours that the Gehraiyaan actress was in a happy relationship with Shahid Kapoor's sibling, Ishaan Khattar. Time and again, they had been spotted together at family parties and casual hangouts, and they had even confirmed their relationship status to be no longer 'single'. 


However, on April 4, 2022, reports of their separation were doing rounds on the internet. Though Ananya and Ishaan had never confirmed their separation, a source close to the couple had broken the news to Pinkvilla. The source had said:

“The two bonded well on the sets of Khaali Peeli and that led to the beginning of a new journey. However, after living their lives together for 3 years, they have decided to finally end their relationship. It has been a mutual call and the things have ended on a positive note. The two will continue to be cordial going forward. It's all fine for them on the friendship front, and they have parted ways on a good note."

#9. Harshad Arora and Aparna Kumar


Pyaar Tune Kya Kiya actor, Harshad Arora did not meet the woman of his dreams, Aparna Kumar, on any cruise or flower garden, but at the workplace. They bonded well while working together in the soap opera, Mayavi Maling. And their sweet love story ignited in 2018, but they only admitted to it in 2020. Harshad was playing Aparna's on-screen son on the small screen, which often made them easy target of the trollers. After dating for more than four years, the couple parted ways in June 2022. In an interview with the Hindustan Times, Harshad had said:

“Yes, we have parted ways but I’d like to keep it private. Whatever time I’ve spent with her in the relationship it was fantastic. We had our differences, but I’d not like to comment on them. I wish her the best.”


When contacted with Aparna, the actress hinted that the breakup decision was of Harshad. She mentioned how it would be excruciating for her to move on from a four-and-a-half-year relationship. She had said:

“We were not on the same page with respect to a long term commitment. I wish him the best and I hope he is happy with whatever decision he has made. I invested four and a half years in this relationship, (of course) it is going to be painful. But yes, I’m moving on.”

#10. Karan Johar and Manish Malhotra


Karan Johar and Manish Malhotra’s alleged love story is still a mystery for many. Since 2018, the duo has been making the headlines for their respective professional work, and side by side, netizens are not shying away from referring to them as a couple. Though Karan refuses to talk about his sexual orientation on public platforms, in his book, The Unsuitable Boy, Karan mentions how he became the poster boy of homosexuality in this country. He had penned:

“Everybody knows what my sexual orientation is. I don't need to scream it out. If I need to spell it out, I won't only because I live in a country where I could possibly be jailed for saying this. I know I am the butt of many jokes, pun intended. I know how my sexuality is discussed. I have become like the poster boy of homosexuality in this country. But honestly, I have no problem with people saying what they want about me.".


Karan Johar had worked with Manish Malhotra for the first time in the film, Kuch Kuch Hota Hai. While Karan was the director of the movie, Manish was working as the costume designer. And reportedly, they shared the same room in London. In his book, The Unsuitable Boy, Karan had said: 

“Post Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, I had actually started working a little on my looks. I had lost some weight and had groomed myself a bit. Finally, I had developed a little spring in my step, a little confidence. That’s when my first encounter happened, after the release of Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, out of the country.”


Later, in 2018, Manish Malhotra had posted a lovely picture with Karan Johar on his IG handle to wish the latter his birthday. And when a fan called them a couple in the comment section, Manish liked the comment and ignited their dating rumours. However, in his chat show, Koffee With Karan 7, actor, Varun Dhawan asked Karan if he ever cheated in a relationship. To this, he had replied:

“Am I cheating? I’ve to be in a relationship to cheat. You know I’m not, and you know I broke up.”

#11. Vijay Deverakonda and Rashmika Mandana


South Indian actors, Rashmika Mandanna and Vijay Devarakonda have been dating each other for a long time. They fell in love while working together on the movie, Geetha Govindam. Earlier, in an interview with International Business Times, Rashmika had confessed her feelings for Vijay and had stated:

“He (Vijay Deverakonda) is a simple guy who was happy in his own world. During Geetha Govindam, we were just friends, but there was a kind of spark that we could not ignore. At times, my heart kept saying ‘he is special, he is special.’ However, the equation changed once we started working together in Dear Comrade.”


In the same conversation, Rashmika had agreed that she was in a relationship with Vijay and that he made her feel like a free and independent woman. She had mentioned that she liked him more than her ex-fiance, Rakshit Shetty. She had said:

“At a point, I confessed my love to Vijay Deverakonda, but he was hesitant initially, but he too had that special feeling towards me. So, he accepted, and we are happy with the way our love has blossomed. He isn’t an insecure person like my ex-boyfriend Rakshit Shetty nor suggests me to sacrifice my career. He is a free-minded person and wants me to be independent forever."


However, in Koffee With Karan 7, Vijay Devarakonda graced the show with his Liger co-star, Ananya Panday and revealed that he is single. Later, many media reports suggested that the cutest couple in the South industry, Rashmika and Vijay had parted ways. A source close to the couple had given an interview to the ETimes and had stated:

“Rashmika and Vijay are currently not in love with each other. Yes, they have managed to be very good friends but there is no romance. They were romantically involved, but that is a thing of the past.”

#12. Palak Purswani and Avinash Sachdev 


Yeh Rishtey Hain Pyaar Ke fame, Palak Purswani was in a happy relationship with Avinash Sachdev for four years. Being one of the most loved couples in the television fraternity, they broke millions of hearts by announcing their separation in January 2022. In an interview with Bombay Times, Palak had revealed the reason behind their split. Talking about dishonesty and cheating, she had said:

"Every relationship goes through ups and downs. There are issues...that is normal. But certain things are non-negotiable for me and those are not acceptable to me. Respect and loyalty come first in my life, even before love."


When ETimes contacted Avinash to comment on his breakup with Palak, he said that a toxic relationship could never last for long. Considering that he values the precious time spent with his ex-girlfriend, Avinash seemed like the super cool ex-boyfriend who doesn’t hold any past grudges. He said:

“This topic is pretty old now. I have completely moved on and this is done and dusted for me. Anyway I do not want to comment on what she has said. That is her perspective; whatever happens is always a two-way street. Taali kabhi ek haath se nahi bajti. I appreciate the beautiful time we have spent together and I respect her and her family and that will never go away. So, yes, whatever happened was good for both of us. A toxic relationship is never good for anyone.”

#13. Pranav Misshra and Arundhati Sharma

Maine apne aap ko promise kiya tha joh kuch pehle reality show mein hua woh aage nahi hoga. Hum dono ne pura ghar hearts se bhar diya tha. Pura Maharashtra mein mera naam lenge toh uska naam pata hai, uska naam lenge toh mera pata hai.”


Further, in the episode, Shiv also mentioned that he never liked tattoos, but during a task inside BB Marathi house, he got Veena’s name inked on his arms. He had stated:

“ltne romantic cheezein ki thi humne us ghar mein. Main bodybuilder hoon mujhe mere body par tattoos pasand nahi par maine task ke beech mein uska naam tattoo karwava tha. Yahan cheezein na bahar ki tarah pratical nahi ho sakti especially kaam ko lekar.”
