Indian actress Akanksha Puri who made her Bollywood acting debut with 2015 film, Calendar Girls, is dating Splitsvilla 5 winner, Paras Chhabra. A while ago, there were rumours about the two dating each other but it soon fizzled out because there came in reports that Paras is dating Yeh Hai Mohabbatein fame, Pavitra Punia.

Paras and Pavitra’s rumoured relationship died away and now, he is officially dating Akanksha. Confirming her relationship with Paras, Akanksha told BollywoodLife, “It’s been two years since we are together. I’m very secretive about my personal life. I never spoke about our relationship; however, Paras was open about it. We were together for a long time. However, my private nature got between us. This became a little issue between us, as he misconstrued my secretiveness as I’m not sure of the relationship. He started having trust issues as I used to behave differently with him in the public as well”.
Akanksha also revealed that Paras asked her to be sure about their relationship, and on this, the Vighnaharta Ganesh actress said, “Be ready enough to tell the whole world,' is what he told me. We then decided to take a break. Post that, he was looking for a rebound”.
During their break from the relationship, Paras started dating Naagin 3 actress, Pavitra Punia. Even though the two always denied their relationship, their camaraderie and comfort had another tale to tell. Akanksha talked about the same, “That’s when he found this female. Although, he was quite clear that he wasn’t looking for anything serious. And he came across a girl who had the same view”. She further added, “He used to be continuously in touch with me. He used to send their photos only to irritate me. They were deliberately doing all the PDA to make me jealous and get the news and the buzz. Which both got eventually”.
Akanksha revealed that they took a break of 4 months and in that break, she realised that she used to miss Paras a lot. At this point, she confessed, “Obviously I was missing him. I realised that I need to be sure of it. (After they were done) We decided to get back. His approach was different this time. I always used to get irritated looking at their pictures and I felt emptiness”. (You May Like: Ayushmann Khurrana Talks About Dealing With Wife Tahira Kashyap's Breast Cancer, Chose The 'Fun' Way)
And finally talking about their relationship, Akanksha said, “We are really different as a person. While I’m very private and low-key, he is a little controversial. That has always been my concern though. However, with this, I’ve spoken about my relationship for the first time. Everyone is very happy. Even the family is happy. Enough of running away from relationships. I’m sure he is my man”.
A few days ago, Akanksha shared the following pics of the two, confirming their relationship, and adorably captioned the pictures as, “It took me really long, 2yrs almost ..it could have taken a day but what was meant to happen finally found its way !! It’s a big YES !! @parasvchhabrra #newbeginnings #committedforthefirsttime #letsdothistogether #youandme”.
Earlier, when an online tabloid approached the two to get scoops on their relationship, Akanksha said, “Paras is a good company. I have only a few friends in Mumbai and he is just one of them. Frankly, I’m not ready for a relationship as of now. I’m focusing on my career and this great show that I’m working on”. Paras, on the other hand, was quoted as saying, “We are good friends. Both of us are not social at all, we met through a mutual friend and we just clicked. Akanksha and I are just so similar. Our families are so similar. We both are non-alcoholic, non-smoker, not party animals, so we clicked instantly”.
Also, for those who do not know, Paras was earlier dating Sapna Babul Ka Bidaai fame, Sara Khan. Talking about what went wrong in their relationship, Paras had earlier revealed to a media house, “I really don’t want to talk about what went wrong between us, but yes the past experiences have taught me a lot. I will never make the mistake to date a celebrity again. I must say that when a relationship doesn’t help you grow, one should just part ways. I don’t want to be known as her ex-boyfriend and now my complete focus is to do good work to help build my career. I refused to do Nach Baliye also, as I want to be known for me and my work rather than someone else”.
