Has it ever happened that after you and your boyfriend part ways, your friendship with his group of friends continues to thrive? Gone are the days when you would feel awkward and decide to break ties with everyone involved (some still do though!). Modern-day relationships boast of the ‘it’s all chill’ phenomenon and a cue of the same can be drawn from one of the most famous faces of the telly town, Sriti Jha and her ‘not so rumoured anymore’ boyfriend, Kunal Karan Kapoor.

Sriti Jha and Kunal Karan Kapoor don’t believe in social media PDAs and it is only in the rarest of days (read birthdays) when you will see this duo posting heartfelt birthday wishes for one another. Hence, when Kunal had turned 36 last year on August 22, 2018, his ‘ladylove’, Sriti had posted a picture of the duo almost twinning with one another as they sat on a pedestal and had written, “Here’s wishing you perfect days, my favourite elder millennial, who told me the tales of cue cards. Happy birthday Mr.K @kunalkarankapoor.” Here are the pictures:
A year has passed since then and it is once again time for Sriti Jha to open the gates of some cute PDA and post a heartfelt wish for her apparent beau, Kunal Karan Kapoor. Amidst the rumours of their breakup, Sriti posted a solo picture of Kunal in his casuals, gazing at the far-off horizon with two glasses filled with red wine, and wrote, “My catastrophically favourite person @kunalkarankapoor You had me at “Your brain has shifted office to your bum or what” Happy birthday.” In one of her Instagram stories, she also posted a blurred video of herself and Kunal, who was apparently trying to capture an image or video. Take a peek at the same below:
On February 26, 2019, Sriti Jha had turned a year older and her friends had made sure to pour in some mind-blowing wishes to make her day even more special. But it was her rumoured boyfriend, Kunal Karan Kapoor’s birthday wish which had caught all the frenzy. Posting an Instagram story to wish the rumoured love of his life, Kunal had written the words, “Wonder lives where ever you go. Happy birthday @itisriti”, atop the picture. Here you go:
A June 2019 report containing the details about Sriti Jha and Kunal Karan Kapoor’s breakup had broken our hearts. As per a media port, things weren’t working out between the two, and thus, Sriti and Kunal had called it quits. The report had also claimed that if the two do not mend their ways soon, it's highly likely that the separation will soon be done and dusted. An online tabloid had claimed, "The two have hit a roadblock. Things have gone downhill. Separation is on the cards until the two decide to mend ways, which looks difficult at the moment." But nothing works better than reconciliation, right? (Must Read: Amitabh Bachchan And Jaya Bachchan's Unseen Dance Performance At Abhishek-Aishwarya's Sangeet)
It was on July 2018, when Sriti Jha and Kunal Karan Kapoor had probably gone on a vacation with one another. And that is exactly when, amidst all the fun and galore, the duo had taken an opportunity to hack each other’s Instagram profile and share a story about the same on social media! Don’t believe us? We have proof!
Having said that, let’s give you a recap of Sriti Jha’s past. The Jiya Jale actress was in a serious committed relationship with her co-star from her previous stint, Dil Se Di Dua…Saubhagyawati Bhava, Harshad Chopda. The couple had dated for a year when the news of their breakup started surging in the telly town as Sriti was said to have found love in her ex-boyfriend’s best friend, Kunal Karan Kapoor.
Harshad Chopra and Kunal Karan Kapoor, who were once best friends, are not on talking terms anymore, for the reasons that are best known to them (and probably us too!). While both Sriti and Kunal have always maintained a ‘no comments’ stance on this, a close friend to the ‘couple’ had once shared, “Sriti and Kunal are very serious about each other and they will take their relationship to the next level."
In a 2014 interview with the HT, Sriti Jha had bared it all out about her and then beau, Harshad Chopra’s marriage. She had shared, “People ask me this question a lot, but even though I want to say that we are just friends, I don’t, as I know it will be taken in another connotation. It makes me sad that fake news about my marriage is out. We are both young and are working together, but not thinking about marriage right now.” (Also Read: Virat Kohli Shares A Sun-Kissed Mushy Picture With His Wife Anushka Sharma From Their Beach Vacation)
This had further proved as an impetus to their dating rumours as neither Sriti Jha nor Harshad Chopra had ever confirmed to the same. When asked if they were dating, Sriti had shared, “No, we are not dating. But such news really affects me, which is why I am clarifying right now before it becomes a big thing. We both have to work in the same show, and in the same industry. So such reports eventually affect things in the future.” Also speaking about love and marriage, Sriti had revealed, “Love is a lot of magic and madness followed by marriage. These are the three M's for me. I think these three keep life intact. I am a very filmi person and would like the magic and the madness to remain in my marriage forever.”
Having said this, here’s wishing Kunal, a very happy birthday!
