One of the perils of being in love is that it can fade away with time, lack of understanding or simply by ignorance. And while the world might say 'exes can't be friends', the season nine of the popular dancing show, Nach Baliye, is keen proving this notion wrong. This year has a unique concept, wherein, we are seeing current baliyes and ex-baliyes setting the dance floor on fire.

One such ex-couple, who has been making headlines since the start of the show is Vishal Aditya Singh and Madhurima Tuli. The ex-couple is phenomenal when it comes to showing off their dancing skills, but their personal equation has been seeing a lot of tension knots. There isn't a single day on the show that we haven't seen them disagreeing or giving a look of hate.
Recently, in an interview with the Hindustan Times, Vishal revealed the reason for their fights. He shared, "Yes, we had a fight, but even couples fight. Tiffs and differences are usual, it’s part of the job and I believe it keeps the spark alive in our performance. And despite all this, we enjoy our work. The reason behind regular fights is that we do not agree on anything. I don’t speak so as not to spoil everything. I haven’t participated on Nach Baliye 9 to fight. I am here to dance and win and show the world who I am. Why we fight so much is because we are exes. Couples also fight but when you fight with an ex, you are more free to say anything you want. It simply becomes obvious. Like when you are friends, you like all aspects of each other but when the friendship is over, you don’t like anything about that person. Same is the case in a relationship."
When the interviewer asked Vishal why he took up the show in that case, the actor stated, "I liked the format of the show and I wanted to participate. There was only one reason to say no - participating with an ex. But there were one thousand reasons to say yes. I was offered a reality show after all the work I had done. People have shown faith in me, it’s because of the love of the people for the characters I have played on screen. I have got a big platform to show who I am, how I work, how I live, what do I think. I like dancing and I am being paid to learn dance. When I am being paid to learn dance and getting so much appreciation, why would I say no! There are so many good things for which I wanted to come on the show. And working with an ex didn’t seem to be such a big reason for turning down the show."

Talking about exes having a better chance of surviving on the show, Vishal said, "The name of the show is Nach Baliye and not talk Baliye. Even if we have personal differences and it’s not affecting our work then it doesn’t matter. If we perform well, we will definitely go far. Relationships are of two types -- personal and professional. I have already spoken about our personal relationship. We are on Nach Baliye due to our professional relationship. There are so many big celebrities in India and abroad who continue to work with their ex even after their break-up. They have performed even better after they broke up, delivered good stories, good films. It completely depends on how professional we are. We are doing good that’s why we have received hi5 for our performance. People are watching us and have liked our performance."
Vishal further shared the reason why he claimed that Madhurima was ashamed to be seen with him. He said, "If you have someone in your life who is not as good as you careerwise or is not as comfortable in going out as you, what else do you say? She knows better." Vishal also opened up about the life after his breakup, and shared, "That bad phase has passed. Mere ishq ka na koi aks hai, na koi shaks hai. I don’t know whom it is for. I am over it and don’t want to be in a relationship. I myself don’t know if I have moved on or not. I need time to understand. I only want to focus on my work."
In an interview with SpotboyE, Madhurima had shared her side of the story and had even talked about Vishal's claim of her having a bad temper. She had stated, "He is behaving as if he doesn't have a temper. In fact, I haven't reacted until now much and doesn't that imply that he has a temper which is worse than mine?" She had also revealed her mother's reaction too, after watching the first episode. She had said, "She was shocked and even cried a lot when she saw the first episode. But now that I have gone for it, I might as well go ahead."
In an interview with The Indian Express, Vishal had revealed the reason behind his breakup with Madhurima. He had shared, "We have not been in talking terms. Our relationship has been no less than a roller coaster ride. We would break up and then patch up often. I was actually clueless in the relationship. After a point, I was made to realise that I wasn’t worthy of her. That’s when I knew this was not meant to be. The time I was with her, I was always put down. I had lost all my positivity and the will to grow. Honestly, I wasn’t happy with her at all and knew she was not the right one."
