Rumours of Pulkit Samrat and Yami Gautam's affair started doing the rounds after the actor's separation from his wife Shweta Rohira. However, latest buzz suggests that Pulkit's family was aware that something was brewing between the two stars, even before he separated from his wife. Another report also said that their proximity increased when Shweta was under rest, post a miscarriage.

It has been reported that Pulkit's family was never fond of Shweta and they were openly being friendly with Yami. Even Shweta had earlier said that Pulkit had left her for his family.

"It is a known fact that Pulkit's parents were not too fond of Shweta right from the start. They did not show any kind of objection to the budding relationship between Pulkit and Yami as well. This has shocked Shweta's family to a great extent and they are deeply hurt. However, they are not the types to indulge in mud-slinging and would like this matter to end in the most dignified way possible," Bollywoodlife quoted a source as saying.

The report also said that Shweta once went to Shimla along with Pulkit and his famly, and found out that Yami too was present there. She had become very upset when she saw that her in-laws were being very friendly with Pulkit's rumoured girlfriend.

Another shocking report said that Pulkit and Yami came close to each other when his wife had suffered a miscarriage and was under rest.

Shweta suffered a miscarriage in mid 2015 and was admitted to a Santa Cruz hospital. Apart from her family members, their common friends are aware of the incident. She was advised complete rest and that was when Pulkit got drawn towards Yami. While she rested, he went astray," Mid-Day quoted a source as saying.

Nevertheless, neither Pulkit nor Yami have ever admitted about their rumoured affair.
