Vikas Gupta's reality show, Ace of Space, concluded recently on December 30, 2018, and ex-Splitsvilla contestant Divya Agarwal was voted as its winner. During the show, Divya and her now-boyfriend, Varun Sood sparked off many controversies and gossips in the telly word. From name calling to mudslinging, both of them dragged their exes, Priyank Sharma and Benafsha Soonawalla into the whole drama.

Divya Agarwal, while talking to Pinkvilla, has said that Priyank Sharma is simply her past and she is glad about whatever happened. Divya said, "I think now it's all done and it's all in the past. One of my bad experiences. I am glad it happened because that's how I got to know how should I add good vibes in my life right now. I am having the best thing in my life now."
Divya also refused to call the earlier reports of her alleged romance with Varun a controversy. She said, "Controversy... I don't know why. It's two people going to be together. I don't know where the controversy started. I think it's funny. There are people who don't like me in a way that I won the show. In my life I will be doing something with Varun where I'm very sure people will be quite negative"
In an earlier interview with SpotboyE, a couple of days ago, Divya confirmed that she dating Varun. This is what she had said, "Well, yes, we are a couple now. We are very much dating. I am glad that I am holding his hand and fighting the world. Our relationship will only get bigger and better and we plan to take it to the next level soon. It will just not stick for fun. Though we haven't discussed on all this, but I can tell you that we are serious about each other."
Divya Agarwal's triumph in Ace of Space, has brought her and Varun under the limelight. Varun shared with a media portal that it was their co-contestant, Chetna Pande because of whom they got closer. He said, "I owe Divya and my togetherness to Chetna Pande. If she wouldn't have been there I wouldn't have got this realisation. The thing was when I met Chetna for the first time, I got attracted to her, then we became amazing friends. She understood me really well and I used to share a lot about Divya to her and she realized that it wasn’t just friendship between us two. Chetna gave me the confidence to go and tell it to the world that I love her. She understood the whole situation and took it very maturely. And I am glad to have Chetna in my life as she was the main reason for my and Divya's togetherness."

Divya said in her interview that she and Varun have had been in touch from long before, "Varun and I used to share an extremely great bond, outside also. Locked inside, you are not distracted. We are alone and thinking about only our lives. And if I am holding somebody's hand after that, I am sure that it's for forever. People don't know this but before coming on this show--- Varun and I used to talk to each other for 4-5 hours in the night. I stay in Mumbai and he stays in Delhi, but we used to play 60s ke songs of Mohd Rafi and Mukesh and make each other hear them. So we were anyway very, very close pehle se. In fact, I would say we were just misunderstanding each other by calling each other as a best friend. The feeling was much more than that, and we realised that only in the show."
Varun Sood said something similar in another interview. He retorted, "I knew Divya before this reality show so we are not a reality show couple who did it for publicity. Divya is an amazing and caring person which made me fall for her. It is stereotyped that couples on reality shows don't last but there are people like Prince Narula and Yuvika Chaudhary. I think Divya and me will be the second couple who will again prove it to the world that relationships can last forever."
Priyank Sharma had earlier shared an open letter addressed to Divya. Commenting on the same, she quipped, "Look, he was a part of my life and I was simply discussing about my life as an experience. So it wasn't the way he took it like he is a public figure and I am using his name for publicity. It was something I was talking in general---about what has happened in my life and basically what was I going through. I have lots of other ways to get publicity--- by my previous work, songs and especially my stint in one of the most TRP rated shows Ace Of Space. If I would have used his name for popularity, then definitely he read it wrongly. Agar mere sach bolne ka reaction aisa hai, toh I don't know what to say."
Varun confirmed that Priyank and Benafsha are dating each other no matter what they say. He remarked, "I came to know about it 8 months back. No matter how much they hide, they are together we all know that." (You May Like: Siddharth Roy Kapur Planned A Birthday Surprise For Vidya Balan And She Loved It Like Crazy [VIDEO])
