Neil Nitin Mukesh splits with girlfriend Priyanka Bhatia
Neil Nitin Mukesh and his girlfriend, designer Priyanka Bhatia, have called off their relationship. The couple had been seeing each other for almost two years. This comes as a bit of a shock because Neil had confessed not too long ago that they were as good as married and their parents had heartily endorsed the union.
In an earlier interview to Mumbai Mirror Neil had said, “Priyanka and I spend so much time together, so making it official is hardly going to make a difference to our equation. There’s absolutely no family pressure on either of us. In fact, God forbid, if we ever decide not to carry our relationship further, our parents will disown us.”
So then what went wrong? Neil refused to specify, only saying, “I really don’t want to discuss it but since you’re asking me, I won’t lie. It is true that Priyanka and I are no longer a couple. The parting was by mutual consent and very amicable. We’re still friends and always will be. Priyanka is still as welcome in my home as I am in hers,” says Neil, adding that there were a number of reasons behind the decision. “I can’t discuss them all but mainly my profession, namely acting, was far removed from her world. To her credit, Priyanka tried to be part of my world but it just didn’t work.”
Considering that they were talking about an imminent engagement followed by marriage, this comes as a real shock to all of Neil’s family and friends.
Neil adds, “I really wanted us to be together for keeps but sometimes destiny has other plans. To compound my problems, I am currently staying alone in our flat in Powai. But considering what happened now, I plan to shift back with my parents.”
The one good thing that Neil’s stint alone has taught him is cooking. “I can make everything from biryani to pasta...but I wish I had someone in my life to make them for me,” says Neil. For the moment though, he isn’t bothered about his single status. “I just want to concentrate on my work,” he says.
