Who said exes couldn’t be friends? Well, whoever did surely didn’t know that ending a relationship of being lovers doesn’t mean that they can’t be friends anymore. Of course, there isn’t a one-size-fits-all outcome of every relationship, but one can make an effort to stay friends with someone, who had once meant the world to them. Television’s most adorable couple, Rithvik Dhanjani and Asha Negi have always given ‘best-friend before bae’ vibes and even after their breakup, they didn’t let go of their BFF bond.

Ekta Kapoor's show on Zee TV, Pavitra Rishta had played the Cupid for co-stars, Rithvik Dhanjani and Asha Negi as love had blossomed between them on the sets of the show. Without a formal announcement, Rithvik and Asha had become ‘Ashvik’ for their fans, and since then, there was no looking back for them, until April 2020. When the reports of Rithvik and Asha calling it quits in their relationship had surfaced on the social media, it had made their fans heartbroken. But seeing them share a cordial relationship post-breakup is surely a delight!
Born in Dehradun, Miss Uttarakhand 2009, Asha Negi had moved to Mumbai to pursue her acting career and had begun her journey on television with the show, Sapnon Se Bhare Naina. But Asha had achieved the fame she had desired from Ekta Kapoor’s show, Bade Acche Lagte Hain and her life had changed personally and professionally when she became a part of Pavitra Rishta. It’s been a decade since Asha had embarked on her journey and now, she has even stepped into the digital world with some web series in her kitty. On August 23, 2020, Asha turned a year older and guess who has the cutest birthday wish for her? The best and the sweetest wish came from her ex-boyfriend, Rithvik Dhanjani.
Sharing an accurate depiction of his ex-girlfriend, Asha Negi celebrating her special day in 2020, Rithvik Dhanjani took a pun on the birthday girl chilling with herself.

For the uninitiated, when Rithvik Dhanjani and Asha Negi had met on the sets of Pavitra Rishta, they had different first impressions of one another and weren’t attracted towards each other in the beginning. Asha had thought Rithvik to be ‘a snob and full of himself' in their initial few meetings and it was in 2013 when Rithvik had realised his love for Asha. When Asha had seen Rithvik filming a scene with another female co-star, it was the ‘jealousy’ which had made her realise her love for him.
In an interview with Aaj Tak, Asha Negi had confirmed her breakup with Rithvik Dhanjani and had revealed that she has no hard feelings for him. Asha had said, "All I want to say is that we are trying our best at whatever place we are now and in whatever state we are in our lives. To give our best and both are working on themselves. I can say from my side that I do not have any hard feelings about Rithvik. I am sure there will be no hard feelings from Rithvik either. All this is a very personal thing for me but I would just like to say that in my heart there is only and only love for Rithvik.” (Also Read: Hrithik Roshan's Ex-Wife, Sussanne Khan Celebrates Ganpati Visarjan With Him And His Family)
