It came as a shock for everyone when 21-year-old aspiring model Muskaan Katria confirmed the report that she and beau Faisal Khan have broken up soon after their exit from Nach Baliye 9. It was also reported that Muskaan suspected Faisal of cheating on her with his 'Chandragupta Maurya' co-actor. In an interview with a portal, Muskaan had said, "Yes, Faisal and I have broken up. I am not in a position to talk any further. When I am a bit emotionally stable, I will speak to you."
Now, during an interaction with Bombay Times, Faisal finally broke his silence and lashed out at Muskaan for her accusations of his infidelity. ''I am shocked that Muskaan has accused me of infidelity. I have never cheated on her. Why have these accusations surfaced only after I had to bow out of the dance reality show owing to my injury? She acted all mushy, romantic and was sitting on my lap till the time I was performing on the show,'' he said.
On reports of him being too close with his Chandragupta Maurya co-star Sneha Wagh, he said, ''Sneha and I are thick friends and there is nothing more to it. In fact, Sneha and my other co-actor Tarun Khanna helped me come out of my difficult phase.''
He even went on to accuse Muskaan of being in a relationship with him only ''for the limelight.'' ''She has been the biggest mistake of my life and aaj main apne maa baap se nazar nahi mila paata hoon (now I can’t look into my father’s eyes). I don’t want to date anyone and I am scared of falling in love again. I have learnt that one must know the person thoroughly before getting into a serious relationship. I think I fell in love with the wrong person,’’ he said.
Faisal lashed out at Muskaan after she spoke about being depressed knowing his alleged cheating. The actor said, "Just 15 days mein depression gaayab hone wala tareeka koi mujhe bhi bata de. Look at my state and you will know what it is like to be depressed. I can’t move and have been advised bed rest for three months. I won’t be able to dance the way I used to for another two years. Only a person who has danced all his life will know what I am going through. I am confined to my bed and the sofa where I sit to stretch my legs. If she claims to be in depression, how can she post ‘happy’ pictures on social media?"
