The Nach Baliye season 2 contestants, Narayani Shastri and Gaurav Chopra broke up without divulging many details, but they have remained good friends post-breakup.

While talking about her husband Tony to a leading publication and the reason why their marriage was kept a secret, Narayani said:
“Tony is media-shy. Honestly, both of us didn't want to get married. We actually got married because one day we were wondering 'Why don't we want to tie the knot, given that the two of us want to be together always?' It was rather strange. This thought came to us one day and we called the registrar the next day."

We connected very strongly, but things didn't move the way we wanted it to. It's not that I don't want to settle down or I am jumping from one relationship to another. We both wanted to settle down, but if we don't see our future together than it's better to part ways."
