Millions of hearts were shattered when Vicky Kaushal was spotted coming out a lunch date with this ‘then’ girlfriend-cum-television actor, Harleen Sethi. We had hardly began to make peace with the fact that the Sanju actor is already taken when news of an apparently trouble in their paradise started brewing in. As per reports, Vicky and Harleen have unfollowed each other from their social media handle, with the latter liking a couple of heartbreak posts. The reason was contemplated to be Vicky’s growing fondness towards Katrina Kaif.
But as per some latest reports, grapevine is abuzz that Vicky Kaushal’s growing fondness towards co-actress, Bhumi Pednekar was the apparent reason behind Vicky and Harleen’s breakup. Vicky is working on a horror film which also has Bhumi Pednekar starring in an extended cameo. This is speculated to be a major reason as to how these two stars might have met each other and come close. Rumours also have it that Harleen Sethi is extremely upset over their alleged split. Also, for the uninitiated, Bhumi and Vicky will also star in Karan Johar's multi-starrer, Takht.
Let us now take you on a flashback mode when all was well between Vicky Kaushal and Harleen Sethi. In an candid confession on Karan’s Johar’s Koffee With Karan season 6, the host of the show asked Vicky if he is a ‘good boy’ or a ‘ladies’ man and also if he is in a relationship. Revealing the same, Vicky simply nodded and indicated that he is in a relationship. When KJo further asked Vicky to share more details about it and whether his relationship is a serious one, the Raazi star’s one-liner crisp reply said it all! He was quoted as saying, “Let's see what happens. It's new.” (Must Read: Ranveer Singh's Kind Gesture For Deepika And Her Ex Ranbir After Winning Zee Cine Award [VIDEO])
At Famously Filmfare hosted by its editor, Jitesh Pillai, Vicky Kaushal got all candid about how love brewed between him and Harleen. In the talk show, he shared that it all started last year. The duo met through common friends and as per the actor, it felt right from the very beginning. He also shared that it is beautiful to know each other and that they have never questioned it. As per the URI actor, “whatever happened, happened in a very organic way.” He further revealed that they enjoy each other’s company and that they are each other’s biggest critics.
In an interview with MensXP, Harleen dropped every possible hint about her relationship with Vicky and had stated, “We share a good bond, there is a kind of comfort level we have that is wonderful.” In yet another interview with SpotboyE, she had shared, “I just want to say that we share a very good comfort level. And we are getting to know each other. Par usse aage kuch nahi bolna chahungi main.”
In an interaction a few months back, Vicky Kaushal had shared that he turned into a poet post his breakup once. The actor had shared interesting details on his life, love and breakups. Although Vicky didn’t name anyone, but sharing his own story, he indicated that everyone has their own way of dealing up with breakups. He had shared, “I think it is the only time when I turned into a poet. Every break-up story is great, you start hearing sad songs. Chalo ek baar fir se hum ajnabeei banjaye..”
However, Harleen Sethi has a different way of dealing with breakups. She was quoted as saying in an interview, “See jab bhi kisi ka heartbreak hota hai uss time pe lagta hai duniya khatam hogayi hai. And I think it’s a similar case with all of us. When a person with whom you have seen dream together leaves, you definitely feel ‘chhan se jo toote koi sapna, jagg soona soona laage.’ But it depends on how you choose to move on. And Harleen has become samajhdaar with time, so will deal with it in a better way.” (Also Read: Kalki Koechlin Opens Up About Her Ex-Husband, Anurag Kashyap And Post-Divorce Life)
Is Vicky Kaushal in the process of turning into a poet soon or will Harleen Sethi deal with her heartbreak with full maturity? Whatever means they opt for, we hope that the duo move on happily in their respective lives.
