Recently, there were news doing the rounds that Veere Di Wedding actor Sumeet Vyas gets engaged with television actress Ekta Kaul and they are all set to tie the knot.
Well now, Sumeet dismissed the reports of his engagement with actress. “We are not engaged and the rumours are false. We are currently dating and are enjoying this phase of our relationship. As both of us are busy with our careers, we would like to spend more time together before taking the next step. I would request the media to not speculate and spread false news regarding the same,” Sumeet said in a statement.
In the same statement, he also talked about his divorce with his first wife Shivani Tanksale and the rumours around it. “There have been other rumours about my divorce that have come up post the launch of the Veere Di Wedding trailer. I would also like to confirm my divorce to actress Shivani Tanksale took place in 2017, it happened amicably and we both continue to remain friends. There is a friendship that has been there for many years and we split ways with a lot of respect,” he said.
Elaborating on his marriage to Ekta, Sumeet told Mumbai Mirror that it’s too early to have that conversation. “I had come out of a marriage, which was a sensitive issue, and I wasn’t sure if I wanted to get into another relationship. Now, our families have spoken to each other as well and everyone is happy,” he said.
After Sumeet admitted about the relationship this morning, Ekta posted the duos pictures on Instagram and she captioned it as “And into his arms I go to lose my mind and find my soul.. @sumeetvyassometimes there’s only one thing to say. P.S. I love you. ????”
