Pulkit Samrat has always made headlines for his relationships and affairs. The Fukrey actor was earlier married to Salman Khan’s Rakhi sister, Shweta Rohira. But due to his alleged marital affair with Yami Gautam, led to a divorce with his wife. And for now, the reports suggest that he has a new woman in his life.
The reports claim that Pulkit is currently dating Kriti Kharbanda. The speculated couple has been spotted together at Varun Sharma’s (Choocha from Fukrey) birthday bash. Moreover, Kriti also surprised Pulkit on his birthday by visiting him in Chennai. Pulkit and Kriti were last seen together in the movie, Veere Di Wedding. And currently, they are shooting together for their upcoming, Pagalpanti.
Recently, Pulkit had commented on his alleged affairs and named Kriti? He had said, “Yami ke saath, Kriti ke saath… I don’t pay too much heed to these kinds of articles. They are part and parcel of the business. My affair is with one person — Varun Sharma. Nobody is writing about it — I’ve done two films with him! My focus is only on work. I would rather be written about for that.”
Earlier Pulkit got married to Shweta in 2014, and soon in 2015, the couple parted their ways. The two got separated and the reason that was alleged then was that Pulkit had cheated on his wife, Shweta with his Sanam Re co-star Yami Gautam.
In a conversation, Shweta Rohira commented on their divorce and said, “We always loved each other, but eight months after the marriage he said he wanted to separate. The reason he gave me was his family. I didn’t see it coming. I had given him a manual of how to be a perfect son-in-law to my parents and he had given me one about being the perfect daughter-in-law. But I guess there was something wrong with his manual.”
When there were rumors that, Pulkit had cheated on Shweta with Yami, Shweta said, “That is ridiculous. I know my husband and Yami is the last person he would want to be involved with. In fact, he didn’t even want to do films with her — he has acted with better actresses. Eight years ago, he had done a music video with her and at that time he wasn’t even talking to her. Yami always had her eyes on him, but Pulkit never had the hots for her. Even now when he was offered Junooniyat and Sanam Re he did not want to do them. It was I who told him it’s okay to do Junooniyat with her. In Sanam Re, initially, another girl (a friend of mine) was considered, but at the last minute it fell through and Yami came on board. But I had loved the story and had full faith in Divya (Kumar, director), so I insisted that Pulkit do the film. I know that there is nothing going on between them.”
Further, Shweta shed light on Pulkit and Yami’s equation and revealed that “I was living in an illusion. I trusted Pulkit. The film industry is a very small world. I get to know things about him even if I don’t want to. Yami was the smoke that led to whatever happened between Pulkit and me. She is a home-breaker. Pulkit has always led a dual life for some reason. He did not declare me as his wife for the longest time, and now he is saying that he is not dating Yami. It’s time he becomes transparent. All said and done, my marriage with Pulkit was a mistake and I have learned the lesson the hard way.”
Pulkit also shared that it was difficult for him to deal with his divorce. Samrat said, “Yes, I was going through a separation, but that was not a major problem. It was the media coverage that became a problem for the families involved. But that’s over. It was a small period. Now, if something is written or said (about it), I ignore it. I don’t need to cope with it, I have coped with it for the longest time and I walked out of it. I am happy. I am single, let me enjoy it.”
