The two had proved their doubters wrong as they had dated each other for a year after coming out of the Bigg Boss house. But with time, the two had started fighting over many issues and had realised that they're better as friends instead of lovers. When the news of their breakup had started making to the headlines, the two were seen together in a breakup song, Zaroori Tha sung by Rahat Fateh Ali Khan, after which it was quite clear that the two aren't dating each other anymore. Now, after all these years, the song is in headlines once again. Scroll down to know the reason!
On January 5, 2021, Gauahar Khan took to her Twitter handle and congratulated her ex-boyfriend and television actor, Kushal Tandon on an incredible feat as their iconic song, Zaroori Tha which was released on June 8, 2014, has crossed 1 Billion views on YouTube. This is a huge thing for both Gauahar, Kushal, legendary singer, Rahat Fateh Ali Khan, and the makers behind this because it was a non-film track. The actress retweeted VYRL Originals' tweet and wrote, "I am soooo fortunate to have been a part of this monumental project. Thank u for the love. @RFAKWorld @DevrajSanyal @KushalT2803 #rahulsud" with it.

His caption can be read as "What am incredible way for all of us @universalmusicindia to start 2021 by joining the "billion view club" with @officialrfakworld's #Zarooritha A song that's transcended age, genre & time over the past few years to become a love ballad of the ages. It's a big win for non-film music to be counted in a stronger & more revered category of commercial music in India. Big ups to my old friend & one of the best singers of all time Rahat, the amazing Salman Ahmed from @pmeworld, who's as responsible for this as any of us and my teams who've now firmly planet the flag for non-film music in the glocal streamscape. To everyone in the teams across who made this epic dream come alive including my dear friends @gauaharkhan @therealkushaltandon we thank eveyone including our buds."
Both Gauahar Khan and Kushal Tandon share a warm and friendly bond with each other after their breakup. The actor had also congratulated his ex-girlfriend on getting married to famous choreographer, Zaid Darbar.

The actor had shared multiple video clips and could be heard saying, "I met my sweet old friend, who has just got married and is sitting next to me. I'm not stalking her. I'm going to my hometown for a shoot" in one of the clips. Take a look:
