Meri Aashiqui Tum Se Hi actor Shakti Arora broke up with his ladylove Neha Saxena after being in the relationship for four years! Yes, you read that right, the two were all set to walk down the aisle in November last year, but due to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s demonetisation, their wedding was postponed. During the demonetization, Shakti was quoted saying, “I had withdrawn cash to pay to the wedding organisers, caterers and other staff as I had to give them an advance. However, they are refusing to take the old currency now. It will take me a long time to exchange the old notes with the new ones. I have no idea when we will get married now. It’s definitely not happening this year.”
The couple got engaged in 2014 and were madly in love with each other. Shakti and Neha even posed for their pre-wedding photo-shoot, and their beautiful pictures were straight out of a fairytale. If reports are to be believed, then Shakti and Neha parted ways after facing compatibility issues and decided to take time off from each other. The two were head over heels in love but few months back the duo started fighting over petty issues and decided to break up. “Over the past few months, a lot of differences cropped up between them, which led to constant tiffs,” a source told TOI. Shakti and Neha tried their level best to save their relationship from such disaster.
Neha even went to Indonesia to be with Shakti, where he was busy shooting, but things did not work in their favour. “Neha is now back in India, and they have decided to take a break from each other; they need time to think about where their relationship is headed. Distance is also taking a toll on their equation,” added the source. Shakti did not comment on this news, while Neha denied this rumour. The actress said, “That’s not true. Who is spreading this rumour? Shakti and I are together. In fact, I returned from Jakarta only because my visa expired.”
The two have even deleted each other’s picture from their social media and Shakti has also decided to extend his stay in the island country by three months. Shakti and Neha met on the sets of Tere Liye and started dating. The two even participated in the celebrity dance reality show Nach Baliye season 7 and won audiences hearts with their sizzling chemistry.
An insider told Bollywood Life, “Yes, it is true that they were having tiffs. There are two major issues relating to the couple. One of them is commitment phobia. Shakti and Neha have been engaged for four years now and she really wants to get married to him. However, he tasted true success post Meri Aashiqui Tumse Hi and is doing very well in Indonesia, where he has a sustainable fan base. Shakti feels that marriage will dent his image of a sexy and desirable actor, which is counter-productive at this stage. In the mean time, Neha is fed up of waiting since four years and really wanted to get hitched.”
The source also told our sister publication, “Shakti is really disappointed with how Neha Saxena’s career has failed to take off. She did her last show in 2013, Amita Ka Amit and was seen in Nach Baliye 7 in 2015. He feels she is not serious enough about her career and this has upset him. Ego issues have cropped up between the two.” Well, we just hope things get sorted out between the two, and they get back together soon. On the work front, Shakti has become a household name in Indonesia and is currently shooting for a TV series in Jakarta.
