Every couple goes through various phases when in a relationship. It starts with the pink-tinted glasses when everything seems surreal and you feel the surge of emotions. Then comes the stage of acceptance when you actually start to see beyond the pink sky and understand your partner truly. It is beyond this stage when a couple realises if they still want to go ahead with their relationship or call it off. Probably, the lockdown has made Asim Riaz and Himanshi Khurana enter the second phase of their relationship really soon, and they are acing it.

Himanshi Khurana and Asim Riaz are a classic example of friends-turned-lovers, as we have seen in the reality show, Bigg Boss 13. Asim had gone down on his one knee to propose his ladylove and could be seen wearing his heart on his sleeves for Himanshi. However, the Punjabi actress had first refuted his love, it was after the wrap of the show that the two had started dating and had made their relationship official. Their fans fondly call them ‘Asimanshi’ and their social media PDA goes viral in no time. Himanshi Khurana has now, after a long time, opened up about her relationship with boyfriend, Asim Riaz.
In a conversation with ETimes TV, Himanshi Khurana shared that any girl would be lucky to have a boyfriend like Asim Riaz. Revealing how she is an exact opposite of Asim as she doesn’t like to share her feelings in public because of superstition, she said, “He is very expressive and any girl would love to have a partner or boyfriend like him. I don't express that much so I get judged a lot. I am a little superstitious when it comes to romance, I feel nazar lag jaati hai. He is a very nice person.”
The lockdown has made the couple live separately and live the life of a long-distance couple. She also talked about how she feels there is nothing like long-distance or short-distance relationship and the need to give space in a relationship to let it grow. She added, “I don't believe in this short and long distance relationship. It is all in your mind. There are so many stories we are getting to hear about how husband-wife and couples are fighting with each other after staying together for a long period. Everyone wants their other half to go to work and give space (laughs). We both are working, so we are not able to talk to each other that much. When he gets free, I am working, when I get free he's working. But we make sure to try and talk to each other at least once in a day and ask about each other's health, daily routine. We respect each other's space and try to balance that we don't lose focus about work.”
The times when social distancing is advised for the safety of citizens, there are certainly days when the couple misses each other a lot. On May 26, 2020, Himanshi had taken to her Instagram story to share a beautiful picture with her bae, Asim from their photoshoot for the Fitlook Magazine. In the monochrome picture, Asim could be seen hugging Himanshi with all the passion like subduing in her love, while Himanshi was hugging Asim by his neck, with a look of protection in her eyes. The picture was too pure to speak about the intensity of their love. (Don't Miss: Raveena Tandon Thadani Plays Her 'Bachpan Ke Games' With Daughter, Rasha And Son, Ranbirvardhan)
It was Himanshi, who had come forward to confirm her relationship with Asim Riaz, in an interview with SpotboyE. Admitting to their relationship, Himanshi had said, “Yes, we are dating!" She had further shared that she had met Asim's family, "Yes. I met them, It was a great experience. It was only because of the show- everyone feels people are fake inside, isliye woh itna confusion aur miscommunication ho raha tha. Jab tak aap bahar aake baat nahi karte, tab tak cheezein clear nahi hoti. Now, it's all good."

We hope Himanshi Khurana and Asim Riaz hold on to each other always!
