For a few months now, rumours have been abound about trouble brewing between Bigg Boss contestants Raqesh Bapat and Shamita Shetty, or #ShaRa as their fans call them.
The couple has not shied away from PDA since the early days of their relationship and for a while now the absence of any sightings together seemed to have confirmed the rumours that the couple have broken up.
However, neither Raqesh nor Shamita officially confirmed or denied the rumours until now.
However, yesterday, July 26, Shamita Shetty took to her social media to post an announcement stating that she broke up with Raqesh Bapat but also requested her fans and followers to continue to shower both of them with their love and support and to also make sure they watch and love the forthcoming video which features the now broken up couple.
Shamita Shetty’s note on Instagram read, “I think it’s imp to make this clear… Raqesh n I are no longer together and have not been for a while, but this music video is for all the beautiful fans who’ve given us so much love n support. Do continue to shower us with ur love as individuals too. Here’s to positivity and newer horizons. Love and gratitude to you all.”
Along with the post, she shared a loved-up picture of the two of them, that was clearly clicked during the happy times.
Most would be aware that Shamita and Raqesh were a couple who got a lot of attention so much so that fans even coined a hashtag for them #ShaRa. The two of them hit it off after their stay together in the Bigg Boss house and officially became a couple. Once out of the house, the relationship continued to flourish and neither shied away from showing their affection to each other, in public, to the media or on social media.
A few months earlier, rumours of their breakup made the rounds, but soon after pictures from their music video was circulated which seemed to dampen the rumours. Then a couple of months ago videos of the couple shooting for the music video went viral and the mindblowing chemistry between the two made everyone assume that the couple were still going strong.
But it seems like the rumours were true after all and finally Shamita Shetty seems to have decided to officially state what’s on everyone’s mind and make her breakup official. There has been no official comment from Raqesh Bapat or his representatives yet on this matter.
