Mumbai: The latest buzz from the small screen world is that Gaurav Chopra and Mouni Roy have split. Though their friends were expecting them to tie the knot, the couple has called it quits.
Says a source, "Their common friends are aware that it is over between them. There are hushed whispers among television folk, too, about their break up. Mouni prefers to be tight-lipped and not talk about it." What's interesting is that Gaurav’s ex telly actress Narayani Shastri who was with him for a long time before Mouni came into his life continues to be close to him.
Adds the source, "Narayani always maintained contact with Gaurav. Though she may say that there is another man in her life, she still remains part of Gaurav’s life. This is something that people could not fathom as on one hand Gaurav would say Mouni was his girl, but at the same time allowed Narayani to be close to him as well. Though Mouni was cordial to Narayani, she didn’t approve of her man’s relationship with his ex-flame at all. This is what led to arguments between them."
After 'Kyuni Saas Bhi Kabhi Thi', Mouni's career got a boost when she became part of the mythological show Mahadev. At that time there was buzz that she was close to co-star Mohit Raina which ended when she was out of the show. Gaurav apparently wasn’t happy with her being friends with a co-star. Adds the source, “On some occasions she was seen crying to a friend on the sets of the show. In the last couple of months, a lot of differences developed which led to ugly verbal spats between them. Now it looks like both have decided to steer clear from each other."
