The chemistry that "Thapki Pyar Ki" actors Jigayasa Singh (Thapki) and Manish Goplani (Bihaan) display on screen is nowhere to be seen in real life. Tellychakkar.com reports that the two are no longer on good terms.

Manish is miffed with Jigyasa as she apparently takes a lot of time to get ready for the shoot. The two even avoid mingling with each other once a shot gets over.

"Once good friends, the duo did a show together in the regional industry before bagging the lead roles in Thapki. But unfortunately, with Jigyasa's rising stardom, the equation between the two has changed," a source told the website.

Manish and Jigyasa have, however, refuted the rumours. "It is completely untrue; rather I and Jigyasa share a cordial relationship. And even if we get annoyed with each other at times, it is all in good, humorous sense," Manish told the portal.

"We have been very good friends from our first show and we still share the same relation. You can visit our set some day and check out how our director scolds us to concentrate on the shoot and not being too chatty with each other," Jigyasa said.

Meanwhile, it is also being said that Jigyasa is dating Ankit Bathla, who plays the role of Dhruv on the show. Some reports reveal that the two had taken a liking for each other right at the beginning of the show. Jigyasa had also arranged a special birthday surprise for Ankit last year. However, the actress had denied dating Ankit, claiming that they were "good friends."

During the Valentine week, Ankit had also surprised Jigyasa and showered her with praises. In a Telly Masala video, Ankit was seen kneeling down on one knee and proposing to Jigyasa on Propose Day. Ankit's romantic words made the actress turn red-faced. Although the proposal was from Dhruv to Thapki, it looked like Ankit used the opportunity to confess his love for Jigyasa.
