It’s been over six months since actor Varun Khandelwal and actress Sneha Wagh, who play brother and sister in the Imagine show Jyoti, have stopped speaking to each other. Sources from the sets reveal that they were once dating each other but have since broke-up over certain issues. Khandelwal plays Deepu and Wagh plays the title role.
Khandelwal admits that the two haven’t been on talking terms for a while now but refuses to admit that they were romantically linked though even their co-stars confirm this. “We were good friends till six months ago when some irreconcilable differences cropped up which I wouldn’t like to disclose publicly,” is what he says.
He adds that they have started making polite conversation of late since it was getting increasingly awkward to work without talking to each other. “Too many cold vibes, too much discomfort on the sets, it wasn’t worth it,” he says with a laugh. So, who broke the ice? “Neither, we would just burst out laughing when someone fumbled and eventually we started smiling back at each other. Things are amicable now,” he says.
While Wagh has only Jyoti on hand, Khandelwal has recently entered Sajan Ghar Jana Hai as dacoit Ambika Bhavani. He has also worked as a casting director for Bhabhi, Kabhi Toh Nazar Milao and Special Squad. He debuted in a minor character in Kahani Ghar Ghar Ki.
