The actor who had participated in Bigg Boss season 5 with Ashmit said she decided to walk out of the relationship because she got to know his ‘real’ side.

Mahek added that she depended on nature for inspiration and moving on in life. The actor spent over a year in Goa after her break up with Ashmit and said she found solace in nature and realised that it has healing powers. Mahek also credited her family and friends for standing in her support all these days. She was quoted as saying, “My friends and family stood by me. I shared my issues with them. I was in Goa for a year. Owing to the lockdown, I would come down to Mumbai only if required. I spent a lot of time with nature in Goa; nature has a calming, soothing and healing influence on me. Time heals everything and this time was no exception. It was not easy as there was no work during COVID; so your mind tends to keep thinking the same thing. But I have finally healed myself.” Also Read - Khatron Ke Khiladi 11 New Promo Out: Rohit Shetty Mocks Arjun Bijlani As He Gets 'Bijli Ke Jhatke' | Watch
