Be it films or serials, lead pairs are almost always trapped in gossip columns.

While some end up being together or great friends, others maintain a professional relationship throughout.

Karan Patel and Divyanka Tripathi's easy-going onscreen chemistry in hit TV show "Yeh Hai Mohabbatein" comes from the cordial equation they share off it, but some have made it out to be something else.

Karan, who celebrated his 31st birthday on 23 November, opened up about the link-up rumours with his co-star Divyanka, saying he would appreciate if people refrained from cooking up such stories.

"People and especially the media tend to think that actors are super human beings. It's high time they realise that we have the same emotions as everyone else — I would appreciate if they respect our personal life," Deccan Chronicle quoted the TV star as saying.

He also spoke at length about the ongoing ghost drama, which is being disliked by the audience.

"I know, it's new for the audience but one has to break the clutter and give something new. Since the ghost track drama, TRP's have risen, so I guess audiences are loving the track," he said. 

In other news, the drama is basically Ishita (Divyanka) and Shagun's (Anita Hassanandani) elaborate plan to save Raman (Karan) from being killed at the hands of Ashok (Sangram Singh). However, Raman and Mihir (Raj Singh Arora) have now begun to suspect Ishita.
