We had seen Priyank Sharma and Benafsha Soonawalla in the house of Bigg Boss and how the two were always there for each other. We had seen them play, have their cute little fights, and craving to be together. One cannot forget the way Benafsha had hugged Priyank when he had re-entered the show or the way Priyank could not get enough of Benafsha when she had to make her exit from the show. We all had seen them fall in love with each other in the show. Despite all, the couple had kept quiet for some years and had hidden their relationship.
It was when the COVID-19 pandemic had broken out, scaring all of us and forcing us to stay away from each other that Priyank and Benafsha had confirmed their relationship. On April 4, 2020, Priyank had taken to his Instagram handle and had shared a picture with Benafsha and had written, "Confirmation", followed by a heart emoji. Benafsha also had shared the same picture on her Instagram handle and had captioned it as "Can’t nobody keep me like you. Call it unconventional. My love is habitual!" However, now, it seems that the two have called it quit and their respective social media handles can vouch for the same.
Priyank and Benafsha are a social media sensation together with millions of fans rooting for them. From their mushy pictures and videos to their flirty comments, their social media PDAs go viral over the internet, however, now it looks like the couple has ended their relationship, erasing all the memories. The couple has hit a rough patch in their relationship as the two have unfollowed each other on Instagram and have deleted all their cosy pictures and videos from their respective handles. It’s been long that the two have posted any pictures together. The last we saw them together was when Priyank had celebrated Benafsha’s birthday. However, now the couple has deleted her birthday pictures as well.
Benafsha had turned 24 on October 2, 2020, and Priyank had made a special birthday wish for her. Taking to his IG handle, Priyank Sharma had shared a picture with his girlfriend, Benafsha Soonawalla, where he could be seen lovingly kissing her on cheeks while hugging. Along with the gorgeous love-filled picture, Priyank had penned a birthday wish for his ladylove, which could be read as “A very happy birthday to you my wild baby! May god give you more strength, power and happiness to bear me I love you #strengthweakness”. Benafsha had shared his post on her IG stories and while thanking him, had written, “Oh booga. You are so amazing. Can’t even begin to express how beautiful you make my days. Why do you love me so much please continue I LOVE YOU @priyanksharmaa.”
In an interview with the Bombay Times, Priyank had talked about why he and Benafsha had taken so much time to come out in open about their relationship. He had revealed, “We took a lot of time to work on the relationship and didn’t make it public earlier because we wanted our space and privacy. Also, in the current situation, there is a lot of uncertainty about the future and that made us realise that life is too short to keep something so beautiful private anymore.”
In an interview with ETimes, Priyank had revealed the reason for announcing his relationship amidst the lockdown. He had said, "Right now from where I see, I feel the world is ending. It has already started. Ben and I were sitting and I told her that there are a lot of uncertainties. It was my idea, that let’s not hide this…this is very pure… God forbid if anything happens to one of us. We have been together for a couple of years now. We had our own reasons to not let it out so far but now we thought let’s reveal it to the world."
We hope Priyank or Benafsha clarify the same!
