Karan Patel and Anita Hassanandani of "Yeh Hai Mohabbatein" recently took their fans by surprise when rumours about a cold war between the actors due to the celebrity cricket tournament "Box Cricket League 2" (BCL 2) surfaced.
However, Karan, who shares a great bond with Anita off-screen, refuted the rumours, claiming that the reports were baseless. "These stories are false. Everything is cool between Anita and me," the actor told Bollywood Life.
Both Karan and Anita also took to their Twitter handle to deny the reports. "Jisse hum pyaar karte hai, jhagda bhi ussi se karte hai ... @anitahasnandani .. Love you taa ..!! Woh dost nahi jo na jhagde .. #BestFriends," Karan tweeted. "@TheKaranPatel kpppppppppppppppp Nasamajh duniya @rohitredz," Anita replied to Karan's post.
Rumours had it that Anita, who is a part of Chandigarh Cubs team, was miffed with her team member Karan due to his constant absence from the practice sessions. "Karan is either very late for the practice or doesn't turn up due to his shoots. Despite a discussion on the matter in the past, things haven't changed. With the tournament about to start, we are hoping all falls in place and the entire team performs to their potential," a source had told Telly Chakkar.
Meanwhile, on "Yeh Hai Mohabbatein," Divyanka Tripathi aka Ishita has reentered the Bhalla family in a new avatar. Ishita, who was portrayed to be dead in the show, made a comeback as Sanaya. Except for Raman (Karan Patel), none of the family members is aware of Sanaya's real identity.
Ishita's entry into the family as Mr. Raichand's daughter Sanaya has been planned by Raman and Ishita as they want to take revenge from Ashok (Sangram Singh) and Nidhi (Pavitra Punia) for ruining their lives.
