Controversies Related To Deepika’s Wedding
The element of controversy never eludes the world of media, and in the same light we have a piece of news that might just startle you. Deepika Samson is now Deepika Kakar as it is believed that she and her husband Raunak Samson have broken their marital ties and have got divorced lately after three years of marriage. Interestingly, Deepika has knocked her husband’s surname and is now using her original name.
She had concealed her marital status before she made her entry into acting, hence her divorce came as a big surprise for many when officially announced. Apparently the reason behind their separation was Deepika’s proximity to her co-actor of Sasural Sima Ka, Shoiab Ibrahim ,who played the role of her husband, ‘Prem’ ,in the televison series. Although Deepika has outrightly rejected this is to be the reason of her divorce, both of them have a good onscreen chemistry which certainly doesn’t go unnoticed.
Despite the fact that the two love birds are making news, the ‘Simar’ girl has been continually ruling out any association whatsoever with Shoaib and claims to be just good friends. However, both of them have been spotted together on countless occasions. Furthermore, their engagement in public display of affection as well as the photos of the two shared by Deepika on Instagram, bolsters the fact that the two are surely seeing each other.
Off late we have seen the two of them breaking the shackles which they had laid on their relationship since long and have finally opened the Pandora’s Box. Probably they were waiting for an appropriate time to reveal the breaking news to the world.
This is what Deepika has to say with regards to the same: “I wanted to be sure that this relationship wasn’t on the rebound. Also, we were getting to know each other better. No matter how progressive we become, being a divorcee has some kind of a social stigma attached to it in our society. I had that stamp on me. But he gave me that space and despite being aware of my past, never complained about it. He has in fact always respected that.”
According to the sources, both of them stood at each other’s side during their tough times which set forth a sturdy foundation for their relationship to blossom further.
Absence Makes Thy Heart Grow Fonder
The pretty lass explicitly told in an exclusive interview about how her fondness for Shoaib escalated when he decided to quit ‘Sasural Simar Ka’.
She says says, “After he left, I distanced myself from everyone on the set for almost two years. I got anxiety attacks once when I couldn’t reach him when he was on a 40-day outdoor schedule of his project.”
Now it’s pretty evident that the two of them have fallen deeply in love with each other and we won’t be surprised to see them tie the knot sometime soon.
Wedding Bells Ringing
While the family members of each of the two can’t wait more for the wedding, the two of them are preparing to save some money so as to have a grand wedding. The couple really seems to be excited for the grand destination wedding which they plan to have in Bhopal—Shoaib’s hometown.
Even though this matter generated enough controversy, still the fans of the actress have no bitter feelings for her as they already see her as the beautiful, gracious, compassionate bahu.
Nevertheless, Deepika deserves our heartfelt wishes so let’s join in to congratulate the would-be couple and bless them with a happy married life ahead.
