The love story of Asha Negi and Rithvik Dhanjani had started when they had met on the sets of the show, Pavitra Rishta. Asha and Rithvik had become ‘Ashvik’ for their fans in 2013 when they had started dating after realising their love for each other. Though the two had never formally proposed to one another or had made any official announcement, their relationship always gave us goals.
After the breakup speculations in the month of April 2020, it was in May 2020 that Asha Negi had confirmed it all in an interview. Asha and Rithvik Dhanjani had parted ways after dating each other for more than six years. The news of their separation had shocked their fans, however, the actors have maintained a cordial bond. Now, Asha has shared her ordeal of being trolled after her breakup with Rithvik.
Yes, Asha was brutally bashed after giving her first interview post breaking up with Rithvik. In a conversation with Bollywood Bubble, Asha talked about the bashing and said, “Fans bashed me right, left and centre, saying ‘Arre, isko toh fark hi nahi padta hai, she is smiling and saying that."
Asha also added that she felt bad because of all the hatred and worries about the ‘Ashvik’ fans, who still mourn their breakup. She added, "And I was thinking to myself, ‘Yaar, how can these people be so judgmental?’ What do they know about what did I go through and what happened? They know nothing, they just want to sit there and judge you. But yeah, I really feel bad for all the loyal AshVik fans, they have been still mourning the breakup that happened.”
When the rumours about Asha and Rithvik’s breakup were doing the rounds, a cryptic quote shared by the actor on his IG handle had added fuel to the fire. The quote could be read as "Nothing should go back to normal. Normal wasn't working. If we go back to the way things were, we will have lost the lesson. May we rise up and do better."
In August 2021, Rithvik and Asha had proved that they are still friends despite the breakup. Rithvik had wished his ex-ladylove, Asha on her birthday by sharing an accurate depiction of her and taking a pun on her. He had shared an edited picture of Asha, chilling with herself and had called her an epitome of self-love and grace.
Rithvik Dhanjani had also shared unseen childhood pictures of his ex-girlfriend, Asha Negi on his IG stories to wish her on her birthday in 2020. He had perfectly captioned the pictures as “Dil hai chota sa, choti si asha! #happybirthdayashanegi.”
On the work front, Asha Negi will be next seen in the web show, Khwabon Ke Parindey, whereas, Rithvik Dhanjani is busy hosting the dance reality show, Super Dancer Chapter 4.
