"Yeh Hai Mohabbatein" actress Divyanka Tripathi broke up with longtime boyfriend Ssharad Malhotra earlier this month, and looks like the actress has already put her past behind.

Working despite illness and not thinking about the split are possibly signs, which indicate that Divyanka has moved on. Although overloaded with work, the actress believes it a great source of relief for her.

"I am not thinking much about it (the break-up). My workplace is my solace and is giving me relief at the moment. mera aadha stress kaam karke kam ho jaata hain," The Times of India quoted her as saying. She also opined how she acknowledges her fans' curiosity to learn more about her personal life but she would never open up about it.

"I am so happy that my show is doing well. I understand that people are interested to know about our personal lives. But it's my life. Nobody has lived those many beautiful years like I have lived. There are lots of circumstances around us. I want people to understand that," she added. Divyanka also has a pug at home, petting which gives her immense joy.

While confirming the split, the couple urged the media to be considerate about their reasons for parting ways. "The decision of calling off the relationship is mutual. We had a beautiful journey and the most lovely memories are helping us part ways cordially. Yet, it's a painful process and speculations only increase the pain," TOI/ Bombay Times quoted their statement.

A few days later, however, rumours surfaced that the "Bharat Ka Veer Putra – Maharana Pratap" had been cheating on her with co-actress Rachna Parulkar.

While Rachna bluntly denied having anything to do with the couple's breakup, a friend close to the two told the leading daily, "Divyanka wanted marriage but Ssharad wasn't ready for it. Also, they failed to spend quality time with each other because of their work commitments."
