Gori Tere Pyaar Mein director Punit Malhotra started dating Bollywood actress Esha Gupta during the making of the film. However, love is said to have gone sour between the two as they are now said to have gone separate ways, as per a report in DNA.
“Esha and Punit split more than a month ago. Both attended Exceed’s Diwali bash in Bandra on November 7, but they made separate entries and exits. They’ve never openly admitted to their relationship or attended events together, but everyone close to them knew they were dating. The pressure of keeping their relationship a secret is what eventually drove them apart. Esha attended Sachiin Joshi’s Diwali party solo," a source said in the article.
Bollywood actress Sonam Kapoor was also known to have dated Punit Malhotra during the filming of I Hate Luv Storys, but that had ended amicably a couple of years after the film’s release. A source close to Esha says, “Punit was over-possessive. Esha didn’t approve of being told how to conduct herself personally or professionally. They tried working out their differences for the last six months but it wasn’t working out, so they decided to call it quits.”
But those close to Punit say otherwise! While we’re still figuring out the truth behind the split, Punit and Esha remained unavailable for comment.
