Himansh Kohli opens up on break-up with Neha Kakkar: ‘She didn’t want to continue’
It’s been almost a year since actor Himansh Kohli and singer Neha Kakkar parted ways. The couple was madly in love and in a steady relationship but their breakup looked very ugly and was probably the most talked about topic in 2018. Neha made it public with her cryptic social media posts and even broke down on a reality show that she was judging. Soon the Yaariyan actor was accused of cheating the singer which led to the break-up.
Now, after staying mum all this while, Himansh in his no-holds-barred interview with Bombay Times has finally opened up about the reason for their relationship going kaput that led to their breakup. He also revealed it was Neha’s decision to part ways and he merely obliged with her. Not only this, Himansh also elaborated on how he kept his professional career aside and accompanied Neha on her tours so they could spend time together.
When asked about the reason for their split, Himansh simply said, “There were so many things that happened, but I didn’t want to talk about it. All I can say is that she didn’t want to continue and so, we mutually decided to separate. It was her decision to move on in life and I respected that. But then in no time, the story took a turn. Each time she put up a post, I faced a backlash.”
When asked about the breakup being ‘ugly’, Himansh said, “It wasn’t an ugly break-up from my side, but when speculations began, everything became ugly. That was one of the worst phases of my life. Today, things have settled down, but yes, there was a time when the entire world was cursing me on social media. That was when we had just split towards the end of 2018 and she had put up this post online. Nobody wanted to know the real story and I was made out to be the villain. It was very upsetting because I wasn’t saying anything and people were drawing their own conclusions based on what she was putting out. She cried on TV shows and everyone believed that I was to blame. I wanted to cry, too, but then we tend to put up a brave front. At the end of the day though, we are human.”
Himansh said that on several occasions, he also thought of penning things on social media but decided against it because he did not want to bad-mouth a woman he was once in love with. The actor shared, “Mann mera bhi bahut karta tha ki main kuch kahoon, there were times when I would type things to post on social media, but I would decide to wait for some time, and a few hours later, I would change my mind because I felt this is the same person who I had loved, how can I say anything against her. That’s not my definition of love. I never even asked her why she was doing that to me, even though it hurt me very much.”

Himansh also said that though he and Neha were in a relationship for around a year, he was very serious and they had even made plans to get married in the future. He also revealed how disheartened he was with all the “cheating” allegations that were being hurled at him and people accusing him of using Neha to become famous. However, he’s thankful that Neha cleared the air and said I hadn’t cheated on her. Thereafter things are finally getting back on track. I have put it all behind me now, he said, adding that he has not been in touch with her after their relationship ended.
Today, the actor is open to love but his entire focus will be on his work. He says he has interesting projects lined up in his pipeline and is looking forward to them. He also has two films and two music videos coming up.
Meanwhile, now, Neha took to her Instagram and posted a long message. She apparently took a dig at Himansh for his interview. Though she didn’t take anyone’s name, she warned somebody to not ever take her name to attain fame. In the warning post, she mentioned, ‘Don’t You Dare Use My Name and Don’t become Bechaara in front of the world, making me look like a villain, Warning You!!!!!’
