Divyanka Tripati split with boyfriend Ssharad after seven years

Popular television actress Divyanka Tripati and her boyfriend of seven years Ssharad Malhotraa called it a quit. Divyanka Tripathi aka Ishita Raman Bhalla of ‘Yeh Hai Mohabbatein’ and Ssharad Malhotraa aka Maharana Pratap, of Bharat Ka Veer Putra – Maharana Pratap broke up mutually.

Divyanka and Ssharad issued a joint statement which read, "The decision of calling off the relationship is mutual. We had a beautiful journey and the most lovely memories are helping us part ways cordially. Yet, it's a painful process and speculations only increase the pain. We request the media to be considerate. This is the final word on this subject and we won't be talking about what went wrong in our relationship. We believe it wasn't destined to last,"

Though the actual reason of their break-up is not known, the couple parted ways on compatibility issues and Ssharad's non-committal attitude towards their relationship.

"Divyanka wanted marriage but Ssharad wasn't ready for it. Also, they failed to spend quality time with each other because of their work commitments." a friend of the couple was quoted by Bombay Times.

The couple met on the sets of Zee Cine Stars Ki Khoj back in 2004 and fell in love on the set of their debut television soap 'Banoo Main Teri Dulhann' in 2006. The couple only admitted their relationship last year.
