Harshvardhan Rane was earlier rumoured to be dating badminton player Jwala Gutta, but they broke up few years ago. "But it never quite worked out. They were one-sided attractions. I've only been in one relationship in my entire life so far. When that ended, I decided being with someone is not for me. I like my own company the best," he added.

However, Gauahar Khan was engaged to director Sajid Khan in 2003, but their relationship did not last long. She was in a relationship with her fellow contestant of Bigg Boss, Kushal Tandon in 2013, but later they split. It was speculated recently that the actress was set for reconciliation with Kushal Tandon.
