The way mid-2020 had brought the news of the breakup of many celebrity couples, the mid-2021 is giving us the vibes of ‘history repeating itself.’ First, it was Karan Mehra and Nisha Rawal’s divorce rumours that were confirmed after their public showdown and now, Indraneil Sengupta and Barkha Bisht are rumoured to be facing troubles in their married life.
Indraneil Sengupta and Barkha Bisht had met on the sets of Pyaar Ke Do Naam: Ek Raadha, Ek Shyaam and had gradually fallen in love with each other. In March 2021, the couple had celebrated their 13th wedding anniversary. While Barkha had posted a video comprising some memorable moments with Indraneil to wish him, the actor had posted some gorgeous pictures of his wife to celebrate the occasion.
The rumours of Indraneil’s affair with a Bengali actress had started doing the rounds in February-March 2021 when he had shot with actress, Ishaa Saha for a film, Tarulotar Bhoot in West Bengal. Now, in a conversation with Bombay Times, Barkha reacted to the same and said, "I am not taking this seriously. Such rumours become a part and parcel of your life when you are in showbiz. Neil and I have spoken about this and we don't feel the need to give it any significance. Neil and I are fine.”
When Barkha was asked if the rumours appeared because Indraneil is working in Bengali films, the actress replied, “He is in Kolkata only when there is work. Otherwise he is always in Mumbai. We are just busy working and focussing on our work assignments."
Earlier, in a conversation with The Times Of India, Indraneil had also refuted the rumours. He had said, “Barkha and I are doing absolutely fine, thank you. I do not know what is the source of this, but all these are merely rumours. The reports also claimed that I have been visiting Kolkata often. That is untrue. I travel to Kolkata only when there is work. The last time I was there, it was for a shoot. My next Kolkata trip too will just be for some work assignment. Barkha and I have a long career ahead and I am okay with such rumours popping up at times. There is nothing I can do about it."
On their 13th anniversary, Barkha had planned a big surprise for her husband, Indraneil. She had gifted Indraneil a Mahindra Thar jeep, which costs around Rs 15 lakh. Taking to her IG stories, Barkha had shared a video, where she was seen taking her husband to Mahindra’s store and had recorded his reaction after knowing that the car belonged to him. Barkha had also shared that she had booked the car four months back. Sharing the video, Barkha had written, “Coz I Love to surprise him!!! @indraneilsengupta” and “@mahindrathar… thank u for keeping the surprise” atop it.
For the unversed, after falling in love on the sets of Pyaar Ke Do Naam: Ek Raadha, Ek Shyaam, Indraneil Sengupta had proposed to Barkha Bisht on her birthday and on March 2, 2008, the two had tied the knot. After three years, Barkha and Indraneil had welcomed a baby girl, Meira into their lives.
On the work front, Barkha Bisht was last seen in the TV show, Shaadi Mubarak!
