Adhyayan Suman calls relationship with Kangana Ranaut ‘toxic’, reveals Shekhar Suman’s words that helped him get over it
Adhyayan Suman has said that he went through major turmoil after his 'toxic' relationship with Kangana Ranaut.
Adhyayan Suman reflected on his ‘toxic’ relationship with Kangana Ranaut and said that he went through ‘humongous emotional turmoil’ afterwards. The two were in a relationship for a few months, from 2008 to 2009, and starred together in Raaz: The Mystery Continues.
In a new interview, while Adhyayan did not name Kangana, he talked about his 2016 interview about her and how he was called a ‘flop actor’ and publicity-seeker for baring his soul. He said that he opened up back then only because he wanted ‘emotional closure’. He was then asked about the relationship and if it was toxic, to which he said, “Yeah, absolutely.”
Talking to Bollywood Bubble, Adhyayan said, “I think there is a lot that happened in that particular relationship, emotionally.” He said that being a ‘young, impressionable mind’, some things stayed with him for a long time. “Bohot saalon tak jo kuch cheezein hui (Whatever happened, for many years), it was very difficult for me to get over. ‘Why did I move forward with this?’, ‘Yeh maine allow kyun kiya (Why did I allow this to happen)?’.”
“Eventually, the battle is not with the person, the battle is with yourself. And then you are constantly telling yourself ‘maine rok diya hota ya nahi kiya hota’, ‘maine kyun nahi baat suni’ (if only you had not done certain things or put a stop to them or listened to others),” he said, adding, “Of course, there was a humongous emotional turmoil there.”
Adhyayan said that one has to move on after a point. He also shared his father Shekhar Suman’s words of wisdom that helped him to overcome the sadness after the break-up. “My father always tells me ki koi bhi achcha ya bura nahi hota (no one is good or bad). When you come in a relationship with somebody, maybe you are just not meant to be with each other,” he said. “Aur woh soch ke phir main zindagi mein aage badha (This thought helped me move forward in life).”
Last year, Adhyayan’s years-old interview on Kangana resurfaced during a Narcotics Control Bureau investigation into an alleged drug racket in Bollywood. In the interview, given in 2016, Adhyayan claimed that Kangana used drugs such as cocaine and hashish.
At the time, Adhyayan took to Twitter to distance himself from everything. “My name has sprung up relating to an interview which I had given in 2016!!!! People stop speculating and dragging me in this toxicity! I have not filed any case against anybody! I don’t intend to visit that dark phase of my life! Please please I have moved on! Let me be!” he wrote. In another tweet, he has ‘nothing else to say’ on the matter and urged the media not to contact him about it.
