It's been a few days since "Yeh Hai Mohabbatein" actress split with longtime boyfriend Ssharad Malhotra. Although the couple remained tight-lipped about the cause of the breakup, rumours surfaced soon after that the "Bharat Ka Veer Putra – Maharana Pratap" actor had been cheating on her with his co-star Rachna Parulkar.

But looks like, such isn't the case. "Just because my co-star has broken up with his partner you automatically think I am the guilty party? Gone are the days when you need a third person to cause a break-up. Sometime compatibility issues do crop up. Ssharad is a sweet person and we have great on screen chemistry. I am very much single and don't like to be linked this," Bollywood Life quoted Rachna as saying.

In other news, while confirming their split, both Ssharad and Divyanka reportedly expressed an interest in not revealing the reason behind going separate ways. Calling their relationship a "beautiful journey" peppered with "lovely memories", they announced that the decision was mutual.

However, this isn't the first time that the actress has been linked to a married man. Co-star Aashish Chaudhary from "Ek Mutthi Aasmaan" was another TV actor with whom she was allegedly linked. Rachna rubbished those gossips as well saying he was happily married to Samita and recently welcomed twins.

"It is sad that some people spread such rumours. But they need to understand that it does not make any impact. The only reason a married man has an affair is when he is not happy with his marriage. And Ashish is very happy with his wife Samita. In fact, they recently became parents to twins," she told BL.
