Dia Mirza cleared that Kanika Dhillon is not a reason behind her and Sahil's separation.
New Delhi: Putting rumours to rest that Dia Mirza and Sahil Sangha parted their ways because of another woman, the actress on Friday refuted the alleged reports and cleared that there is no third person involved behind their separation.
Calling the reports false, the actor said that there is no truth behind the reports "and no third person is the reason for Sahil and I to part ways," she tweeted on her official account.
3)There is absolutely no truth to the alleged reports and no third person is the reason for Sahil and I to part ways. We have requested the media to be graceful and allow us this time for some privacy. Really hope they can respect that.— Dia Mirza (@deespeak) August 2, 2019
According to media reports, there are rumours that Sahil came close to film writer Kanika Dhillon who too announced that she has parted ways with husband Prakash Kovelamudi who helmed 'Judgementall Hai Kya.'
Kanika took to Twitter to clarify that there is no link between the two incidents. She in fact never met Dia and Sahil in entire life. "Laughable-Despicable-Irresponsible! Fiction writing is my job!Can tabloids b a lill more responsible pls? Jst bcos 2news items come at d same time-They can't b interlinked! It's not a potpourri! Hav NEVER met Diya/ Sahil in my ENTIRE life! Pls get over it n let us get back 2work!" she tweeted.
I am so sorry Kanika that people can be so disgraceful. All my love to you. https://t.co/vg5O6jPAea— Dia Mirza (@deespeak) August 2, 2019
Supporting her, Dia added that it is even more unfortunate that their colleagues' names are maligned "As a woman, I will not stand for another woman's name being used so irresponsibly to perpetuate a lie."
Admire you Kanika! Thank you for your graciousness ❤️ https://t.co/pQs7La6PPF— Dia Mirza (@deespeak) August 2, 2019
Dia and film producer Sahil mutually decided to go on their separate ways after spending 11 years together on Thursday.
The couple has decided to remain friends and requested media for privacy while thanking them of continued support. "We remain friends and will continue to be there for each other with love and respect. While our journeys may lead us down different paths, we are forever grateful for the bond that we share with each other," Dia wrote.
The former Miss Asia Pacific has requested for privacy and therefore "will not be commenting any further on this matter."
Dia and Sahil tied the knot on October 2014, at a lush ceremony in Delhi after dating for quite a few years.
