VJ Anusha Dandekar recently revealed how she dealt with her break-up with actor Karan Kundrra during an ‘Ask Me’ session on Instagram.
The ‘Love School’ co-hosts dated each other for over three years before calling it quits in December 2020.
Anusha had stayed mum when reports of their evident split started doing the rounds in the media last year. However, on December 31, 2020, she posted a long note wherein she shared the news of her break-up with Karan and mentioned that she had been “cheated and lied to”. She added that she had waited for an apology which never came.
Now, after Anusha opened up about how she dealt with her break-up with Karan and after news of her being in a relationship with actor Jason Shah is out in the open, ex-beau Karan Kundrra spoke about the break-up and whether or not he too has moved on in life in an exclusive chat with ETimes.
“I have remained silent out of respect for the relationship and I would like to keep it that way. At this point, I am also thinking about two families. I, too, can turn around and say a lot of things, but that’s not me. What she shared was her perspective. Sometimes, I start laughing when I hear things. I don’t know what can make someone so hateful towards another person. We shared a beautiful relationship for three-and-a-half years. I have learnt a lot from Anusha, and I have a lot of respect for her and her family. How is it that these allegations are being levelled against me when there is a development on my professional front? Why hasn’t any other person, who I have been in a relationship with, ever accused me of something as serious as this?” Karan told ETimes.
He added, “According to me, we split up over a year ago. There are a lot of things to be considered in a relationship. As individuals, we all have different approaches to life. We were madly in love and even sacrificed a lot for each other. We tried hard to work it out, but unfortunately, in vain.”
On whether the allegations and claims affected him and what were his thoughts about them, Karan said, ‘If I didn’t matter to her, she wouldn’t have done it. Anger is also an expression of love. When I see my reputation getting tarnished, and feel like presenting my side of the story, I realise that gusse mein bhi kahin na kahin pyaar hi hoga. I hope that one day when all of this anger is over, and we are not hurting anymore, we will talk about it.”
“Just because I haven’t said anything, doesn’t mean that I am not affected. She may have moved on, but I have not,” he added.
Revealing whether or not he has moved on in life like his ex Anusha, Karan said, “I am single. I don’t think I have recovered yet.” He also mentioned that it’s hard to get into a relationship at the moment even though his family and friends have tried to set him up on several occasions.
On the work front, Karan Kundrra is set to enter the popular show Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai and will play the role of lead female star Sirat’s love interest.
