The actress has accused Anshul of cheating on her. For the unversed, The duo met on the sets of Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata hai in 2014 and started dating after a year of knowing each other.
The actress claimed that the trouble was brewing between them for some time but it was the final straw for her when Anshul left her while she was unwell. In an interview with Etimes Priyanka Udhwani said “I had my first vaccine jab last week and was down with a high fever. He left the house at 7 pm and told me that he would be back in a couple of hours. However, he returned only the next evening. I learned about his whereabouts through his Instagram stories and realised that he was with a girl. I decided to end the relationship and posted about the same on my social media page.”
The actress added that after announcing the end of their relationship, a couple of girls had messaged her saying that Anshul has been trying to hit on them. Though the girls did not inform her before thinking that they are very happy together.
Priyanka added that she feels liberated after the breakup. She said, “This has been happening for a long time. I finally reached a stage where I had to take a stand for myself. I didn’t believe people when they told me about Anshul and was foolish in love. He is a toxic person and caused a lot of negativity in my life. After breaking up, I feel happy and liberated. I want to come out of this as a happy and strong person.”
However, on the other hand, Anshul Pandey,’s side of the story has something different to tell and he refuted the claims made by Priyanka Udhwani. Anshul revealed that Priyanka did not speak to him directly on the matter. He said, “I don’t like to discuss my personal life, but if Priyanka is accusing me of cheating on her, then it’s wrong. One should say these things with validation and not just to put the other person down. If we came as far as six years together, I am sure there must have been more mental happiness than emotional exhaustion. The irony is she hasn’t even spoken to me about this. We shouldn’t make assumptions.”
Anshul Pandey further said that he had not cheated on her and revealed that Priyanka knew about his plans. On top of it, he stated that Priyanka wasn’t there for him when he had got his jab. “We had a fight then and she didn’t even want to be around me. It’s easy to say that I was partying with other girls, but one should take into account that there were three guys there as well. Why not ask me about it instead of putting up something that’s convenient to her on social media? She can fight with me, leave for Goa and be unreachable for weeks – how is that okay?”- The actor said.
Furthermore, when asked whether he tried to reach out to Priyanka, the actor said “I can’t reach out to somebody who has blocked me everywhere. I don’t even know what went wrong.”
