Madhurima Tuli and Vishal Aditya Singh are becoming the most popular on-screen couple on the stage of Nach Baliye Season 9 not just because of their stunning performance but their relentless banter and every bit of drama that unfolds after the show.
After Vishal refused to hug Madhurima even after judge Raveena Tandon and Ahmad Khan insistence, leaving everyone in shock, the TV actor has let out some surprising details about why their relationship turned sour and why happens behind the scenes.
Vishal was asked about the constant fights, he had told Mid Day, "Break-ups often lead to fights. So, whenever we meet and if the topic [of the relationship] arises, we end up fighting. But at the end of the day, we are both participating to win. It's not going to be easy."
Now, during an interaction with Bombay Times, Vishal spoke about the whole situation with Madhurima from their past to present.
Vishal on revealing about what went wrong said, "During an episode, Salman (Khan) sir asked us what had gone wrong in our relationship. I replied, ‘Yeh mere liye galat insaan thi’. But she mistook galat for ‘ganda’ and Salman sir corrected her instantly. See, no relationship ends on a good note. One is either happy or sad in a relationship. However, when we were together, I was perpetually in a predicament whether to laugh or cry. She must have broken up 50-odd times during our courtship, over the pettiest of issues. I never wanted it to end because I was madly in love with her."
Vishal went on to say, "Besides finding me desi and not fluent in English, I think she felt that I wasn’t financially strong. She would fight with me every time before we went out. I once asked her if she was ashamed to be seen with me in public, and she agreed. She was also abusive. I have never spoken about this before, but the relationship had started affecting my work."
The actor also said, "I was in a terrible state of mind during our courtship. It’s better to part ways if a relationship obstructs your growth. I was always averse to marriage and my break-up with Madhurima has made that resolve stronger. I just want to adopt a girl now."
When asked why did he give his nod for Nach Baliye 9 with Madhurima even after having such a difficult past, Vishal replied, "The makers approached me first and when I learnt that they wanted me to pair up with Madhurima, I turned down the offer. She told me that the show will boost her career and hence, she wanted to participate in it. I relented eventually, as my friends convinced me."
On being quizzed if the fights between them are fake and scripted, Vishal concluded by saying, "Let people think that it’s staged; I don’t care. If I am that rough on stage, they should know to what extent I have suffered in this relationship. To hug a person is my personal choice. I am not letting the equation come in the way of our work. If that was the case, I would have told the choreographer to avoid any hugging or intimacy in the performances. I am absolutely fine with the way I am behaving on the show and have no regrets."
He added, "Just because I bare my heart on stage and she stays quiet, doesn’t mean that’s how it is backstage, too. Whatever you are seeing on screen is the real me and I am not faking it for the ratings. Nothing is scripted either. Though we share a vanity van, we don’t interact at all. But the minute the camera is on, she starts exchanging pleasantries. I can’t be fake like her. In fact, she claimed on the show that we broke up recently, but it’s been a year since we parted ways."
