From Hrithik Roshan and Sussanne Khan, Arjun Rampal and Mehr Jesia, Farhan Akhtar and Adhuna Bhabani to Arbaaz Khan and Malaika Arora, some of the B-town’s once-power couples have proved that it is easy to fall in love but difficult to maintain the same, after they had parted ways ending their more-than-a-decade long marriages. It was at the beginning of August when Dia Mirza and Sahil Sangha, who were considered to be synonymous to #CoupleGoals, had taken their fans by a frenzy when they had announced their separation.

With a marriage for over four years and a relationship of 11 years, Dia Mirza and Sahil Sangha had released a joint statement to announce their heartwrenching separation. The same could be read as “After 11 years of sharing our lives and being together, we have mutually decided to separate. We remain friends and will continue to be there for each other with love and respect. While our journeys may lead us down different paths, we are forever grateful for the bond that we share with each other. We thank our family and our friends for all their love and understanding and members of the media for their continued support and request everyone to respect our need for privacy at this time. We will not be commenting any further on this matter. Thank you, Dia Mirza and Sahil Sangha.”
Dia Mirza had captioned her post as, “This is to clarify and put to rest all kind of speculation that is being bandied about by a certain section of the media regarding my separation with Sahil. It is most unfortunate to see the level of irresponsibility exercised. What is even more unfortunate is that our colleagues' names are being tarnished and maligned by this media. As a woman I will not stand for another woman’s name being used so irresponsibly to perpetuate a lie! There is absolutely no truth to the alleged reports and no third person is the reason for Sahil and I to part ways. We have requested the media to be graceful and allow us this time for some privacy. Really hope they can respect that.”
This joint statement post has, however, been deleted from Dia Mirza and Sahil Sangha’s respective Instagram handles. And on August 31, 2019, Dia and Sahil were snapped together in Mumbai, for the first time after they had announced the separation. While Dia was casually dressed in blue jeans paired with a striped-top, Sahil had opted for a white shirt and denim. Dia and Sahil were snapped by the paparazzi as they came in different cars.
As soon as Dia Mirza and Sahil Sangha had announced their separation, media was flooded with the series of reasons that could have possibly be behind their split. Amidst the speculations of Sahil’s extra-marital affair with Judgementall Hai Kya writer, Kanika Dhillon being the major reason behind his separation with Dia, the trio had come out on social media to clarify the same.

Sahil Sangha had clarified the conjectures regarding his extra-marital affair with Kanika Dhillon and the third person being the reason behind his split with Dia Mirza. He had written on Instagram, “There is absolutely no truth to the story linking us to respected colleagues of our fraternity. It is a distasteful lie. We would appreciate a strong measure of restraint and a basic level of decency before such callous assumptions are made about the personal lives of people. Thank you.”
Dia Mirza too, had clarified the same on her Instagram story as well as on Twitter and had lashed out at the baseless speculations. Her post could be read as “This is to clarify and put to rest all kind of speculation that is being bandied about by a certain section of the media regarding my separation with Sahil. It is most unfortunate to see the level of irresponsibility exercised. What is even more unfortunate is that our colleagues names are being tarnished and maligned by this media.

There is absolutely no truth to the alleged reports and no third person is the reason for Sahil and I to part ways. We have requested the media to be graceful and allow us this time for some privacy. Really hope they can respect that.”
Kanika Dhillon had also slammed the "laughable, despicable and irresponsible" rumours that had blamed her for Dia Mirza and Sahil Sangha's split. Kanika had tweeted, “Laughable-Despicable-Irresponsible! Fiction writing is my job! Can tabloids b a lill more responsible pls? Jst bcos 2news items come at d same time-They can’t b interlinked! It’s not a potpourri! Hav NEVER met Diya/ Sahil in my ENTIRE life! Pls get over it n let us get back 2 work!” To which, Dia had apologized and replied, “I am so sorry Kanika that people can be so disgraceful. All my love to you.” (Also Read: Shraddha Arya Feels That Her Fans Are 'Still In Shock' Over Her Dating Businessman-BF, Alam Makkar)
After Sahil and Dia had deleted their joint statement from their respective social media handles, all we can do is hope for them to resolve their issues and give their relationship a second chance.
