Last year during this month, one of the most popular and longest running reality shows in India, Bigg Boss, returned with its first web version, Bigg Boss OTT. The show gave the audience much to talk and root about, especially the blossoming love story between contestants Shamita Shetty and Raqesh Bapat. The couple, popularly referred to as ‘ShaRa’ by their fans, became an instant favourite and continued their liaison even after the show ended.

Shamita Shetty and Raqesh Bapat had quite a dreamy romance that was loved by their fans, however, about a week ago, the duo shocked those fans by announcing their breakup. Both of them took to their Instagram stories to make their split official. Shamita wrote, “I think it’s imp to make this clear. Raqesh n I are no longer together and have not been for a while, but this music video is for all the beautiful fans who ve given us so much love n support. Do continue to shower us with ur love as individuals too… Heres to positivity and newer horizons… Love and gratitude to you all. (sic)”.

Whereas in his note, Raqesh said, I would like to share with you all that Shamita and I are no longer together. Destiny made our paths meet in the most unusual circumstances. Thank You so much to the beautiful Shara family for all the love and support. Being a private person, I did not want to publicly announce parting ways, however I feel we owe it to our fans to put this out. I am mindful that this will break your hearts but hope you can continue to shower your love on us as individuals too. Looking forward to all your support… This music video is dedicated to all of you.

While there was no reason given by either Shamita Shetty or Raqesh Bapat behind their breakup, Rajiv Adatia, who is like a brother to Shamita, has opened up on why the duo decided to go their separate ways. While talking to Times Of India, he shared, “When you are in a show like that (Bigg Boss), you get attached to people very quickly. Shamita and Raqesh tried to make the relationship work; they were dating when they came out of the show. There was a lot of love there, and there still is. But sometimes things don’t work out – sometimes distance doesn’t help, lifestyles don’t match – and that’s okay. Things change when you come out of the BB house. But they are still friends and love each other a lot. I think they are better as friends.”
