When you work together for a long time, your professional life tends to affect your personal life as well. And who can understand this better than reality TV stars, who spend 16-18 of the 24 hours together? A lot of love stories have emerged on reality shows in recent times, but not all reached their destination. A lot of conjectures, speculations, hashtags and what-not had trended in support of these love stories but destiny had something else in mind.
Today we are talking about some of the much-loved celebrity couples, who had dated on reality shows but couldn't take their love story forward and had broken up in real life. As much heart-breaking it would've been for them, it was no less for their fans as well! Let us have a look at some of the popular ex-couples.
The 'IT' couple of small screen and one of the most-loved celebrity pairs, Kushal and Gauhar had left their fans mourning after calling it quits in their year-long relationship. The house of Bigg Boss in season 7, was the humble abode where Cupid struck both of them with its strongest arrows and their romance budded. Gauhar went on to become the winner of that season and fans just loved the chemistry between the two. As much as they wanted to see more of them together, Kushal had broken their hearts by tweeting about their breakup, "There is nothing called #gaushal guys m sorry to break the news...Gauahar n I r no more together... love and peace."
The much-talked-about couple, Vishal and Madhurima, due to their brief stint of on-and-off relationship in the house of Bigg Boss, had grabbed attention for all the wrong reasons. Vishal and Madhurima have an interesting history of dating. If rumours are to be believed, they had started dating on the sets of Chandrakanta, in which they had played the lead roles. They had even participated in Nach Baliye, as an ex-couple, although they even went on to open about their relationship and apologize to each other in Nach Baliye. It was in the Big Boss house, where they had gotten a wild card entry, together again. Vishal and Madhurima's fights and arguments had made headlines all over the internet whilst their short stay in the house. Madhurima had even gone on to hit Vishal by a frying pan on his lower back after he had spilt water on her.
They had met in the house of Bigg Boss, where a lot of love stories flourished and died with time. One of the hottest couples to emerge from the house of Bigg Boss, Karishma and Upen had set fire to the gossipmongers, with their charades in the house, like sleeping together in the same blanket and what not! They even went on to participate in Nach Baliye together, where their romance had blossomed to the peak. That was when Upen had surprised everyone by going down on his knees and proposing to Karishma on the sets of Nach Baliye! They had even hosted MTV's Love School together but broke up due to reasons still unknown.
Veena Malik had definitely set the temperatures soaring high in the house of Bigg Boss with her hot and bold avatar. Enticed with her sizzling hot self, Ashmit had fallen head-over-heels in love with her. Their dating had become the talk of the town, although she had bashed all the rumours of kissing and being intimate in the house with him. Veena and Ashmit had a rather ugly breakup about which Veena has said, "I realise he is a different person and I am a very different person. I was the one who called off the relation. I am a very brave woman and I don’t need to regret about the break-up. I am a very simple and religious person."
Rahul had met and married Dimpy, an Indian model and actress, in the reality show, Rahul Dulhaniya Le Jaega. Their relationship had a rather ugly ending after Dimpy had alleged Rahul of domestic Violence. According to the reports, Dimpy had alleged that the domestic violence had started a month after the wedding itself. According to Dimpy, Rahul was unhappy with her frequent trips to her hometown Calcutta (because of her second-year exams), and that's how when it all had started. Rahul is now on his third marriage and Dimpy is also happily married with a kid.
Head over heels in love couple Karan and Kavita's breakup had broken the hearts of their fans. They were once a very much-in-love couple on the sets of Nach Baliye and fans had rooted for their chemistry. But they had parted ways soon after, leaving a lot of speculations in the air. When asked about their breakup, Kavitha had retorted, "With all due respect to him (Karan), I don’t even remember his face. I also don’t watch much TV so I haven’t seen him on television either." Whereas, Karan had said, "I don’t like talking about her (Kavita Kaushik)."
Met in the Bigg Boss house, Tanisha and Armaan's closeness was despised by her family, despite which, she had chosen to be with him throughout the stay. However, their love story had come to a halt after the Bigg Boss finale. It was rather surprising for their fans as Tanisha and Armaan were caught getting intimate in the Big Boss house several times, and were even served a warning by the host, Salman Khan and Bigg Boss himself. Post the Bigg Boss finale, Tanisha was quoted as saying, " It was just friendship."
Rakhi had organised her swayamvar on national television in 2009, with a reality show, in which she had set to find the perfect groom for herself. After eliminating 15 of the contestants, Rakhi had chosen Elesh as her groom and had gotten engaged to him. Their relationship went down the hole when Rakhi had accused him of financial instability and his insistence of moving to Toronto post-marriage, shortly after. Although Elesh had bashed all such rumours, Rakhi had called-off the engagement soon.
Their PDA moments in the Bigg Boss house had made headlines all over the internet in those days. Gautam's affection for Diandra was not hidden from anyone. The 'lovebirds' were caught a number of times, getting cosy in front of the camera. Although Gautam had shocked everyone with his statement, in which he had said, "It would be rude to reject a girl who kisses me. So I kissed Diandra back. There was nothing more than that. I am going to marry the girl that my mother chooses for me" soon after the Bigg Boss finale. He had also gone on to say he regrets going to the bathroom with Diandra.
