Be it friends, lovers or any other relationship in your life, the more you get used to their presence, the harder it gets to part ways with them. It feels like you have been living under a comfortable space for a long period that it takes a lot of time to get used to the transition from ‘we’ to ‘me’. And sometimes, for lovebirds-turned-estranged couples, their friendships too, fade with their relationship. While we aren’t sure if Kasautii Zindagii Kay 2 co-stars, Parth Samthaan and Erica Jennifer Fernandes’ friendship has faded away with their ‘alleged’ love but some of their latest instances suggest the same.

While working together for Kasautii Zindagii Kay 2, Cupid had decided to strike Erica Jennifer Fernandes and Parth Samthaan with its sharpest arrow of romance. From taking off time for each other from their hectic schedules and exploring the world together to making an entry with one another at various telly arena events, Parth and Erica soon became the ‘not-so-secret-anymore’ sweetheart couple of television, giving sheer #CoupleGoals! But for quite some time now, there have been reports of trouble in Parth and Erica’s relationship.
It was on September 10, 2019, at AltBalaji’s Mission Over Mars screening, Erica Jennifer Fernandes and Parth Samthaan had an awkward moment. If the reports are to be believed, Parth and Erica, who often attend events together, reached for the screening 45 minutes apart but the catch here is that when Parth was interacting with the media at the red carpet, Erica chose to walk past him with Vikas Gupta, instead of greeting him!
A few days back, gossip mills were churning with the dating speculations of Erica Jennifer Fernandes and Vikas Gupta. But Vikas had refuted the reports and had clarified, "It is wrong news, and I am not dating Erica." Now, if the latest scoop is to be believed, it was Erica’s alleged ex-boyfriend, Parth Samthaan, who had spread the dating rumours of her and Vikas. As per the SpotboyE report, it was Parth’s insecurity which had led to him spreading the rumours about Erica and Vikas’ relationship.
Speaking about Parth Samthaan and Erica Jennifer Fernandes’ apparent dating spree, The Tribune had earlier quoted a source as saying, “Parth and Erica have been inseparable and are always together. They both arrive on the set together and wait for each other’s pack-up to leave together. They are very fond of each other and clicked since the day they met. Parth is always in Erica’s make-up room and they find their way to each other even in between shots. Parth also went to meet Erica’s family and they seem to adore him.” (Also Read: Aayush Sharma Finally Confirms Arpita Khan Sharma's Pregnancy, Says 'We Can't Wait For Baby To Come')
Later, Erica Jennifer Fernandes, in an interview with the Hindustan Times had shunned all dating rumours and had blurted out the truth. She was quoted as saying, “It is news to me that such rumours are out there. But, I guess, rumours are a part and parcel of the entertainment industry. I have known Parth since we started working together on our TV show and we shoot every day. We are good friends and have a great working relationship. Whenever we chill together, we have a whole bunch of people with us. When we go for events, we are often leaving from our set, so yes, we do leave together. That doesn’t mean we go home together. In fact, we live in different parts of the city.”
It was on April 22, 2019, when Parth Samthaan had taken to Instagram and had penned down a heartfelt eulogy for his late father, which could be read as “The man known for his vibrant smile, his hard work, and the way he kept his relations... perhaps the last time I saw Him smiling... RIP Pappa... Love... Always.” For the same, Parth had driven off from the suburban city to be with his family to cope up with the huge loss, and that is when the rumours had floated in that his probable ladylove, Erica Jennifer Fernandes had offered to accompany him to his hometown. But do you know what was Parth’s reply? He had allegedly refused her! Yes, that might had come as another shock to you , but in an interview with Pinkvilla, Erica had shut the baseless rumours with a savage answer!
Upon the whole incident, Erica Jennifer Fernandes had stated, “With all due respect Parth and I share a beautiful bond of friendship and we are always there for each other when required. He knows that best so I don’t have to clarify anything to anyone.. and I completely understand that online media run stories on the basis of either directly speaking to the artist, which in this case, they didn’t before putting this out or they get to know stuff by their sources.. so I don’t blame them.. But honestly, I pity their sources and their little delusional birdies that give them such information, have a heart for god’s sake. Parth is going through a tough time so pls stop dragging him in baseless nonsense like this.” (Also Read: Priyanka Kalantri And Vikaas Kalantri Finally Share First Pictures Of Their 2-Month-Old Son, Vihaan)
Amidst the reports of trouble in their personal lives, Parth and Erica maintain a strictly professional relationship and talk to each other only related to work!
