The couple parted ways back in 2019, after being together for 11 years. She had been rumoured to be in a relationship with Vaibhav for quite some time, but they never spoke about it publicly.

The actress was last seen in a supporting role in Anubhav Sinha’s 2020 released ‘Thappad’. Her next film, an action-thriller venture ‘Wild Dog’, released theatrically on April 2, 2021.
