Ever since the news of television actors Vivian Dsena and Vahbiz Dorabjee's split broke, speculations have been doing the rounds regarding a third person responsible for the strife.

Earlier, it was said that the reason for the couple's separation was compatibility issues, but if the latest report is to be believed then Vahbiz's growing proximity to Vipul Roy of "Saheb Biwi Aur Boss" fame is apparently the reason for the rift in the married couple's life.

The "Bahu Hamari Rajni_Kant" actress and Vipul apparently spend a lot of time together and also celebrated Ganesh Chaturthi together at Vipul's place. Also, the actors often share pictures of them on Instagram. "Vahbiz's over-friendliness with Vipul did make a lot of tongues wag," a source told SpotboyE.

The report further said that Vipul's former girlfriend and "Bigg Boss 9" contestant Yuvika Chaudhary was apprehensive of Vahbiz's presence in their lives.

Vivian and Vahbiz met on the sets of "Pyaar Kii Ye Ek Kahaani" and after a brief courtship, they got married in 2013. They are currently living separately as Vivian moved out of their house a few weeks ago.

Talking about the separation, Vivian had told Hindustan Times: "It's personal, and I would like to keep it personal. We are adults, who are mature and [were] married for more than three years. We are the two best people who can decide what is happening [between us]. The media will speculate and publish reports. But it is we who will decide what is the best [for us]."
