Television on-screen characters Kavita Kaushik and Nawab Shah’s sudden split in July prompted much hypothesis. Reports recommended that Kavita’s parents objected to the five-year relationship due to their distinctive religious background . Nawab, 44, has told Media this is not valid.
Nawab, known for his work in Diwale and Don 2, told media :”I don’t understand why people are making a fuss about our religious backgrounds. I want to clear this once and for all – Kavita and I broke up because we had major differences for a long time. We are strong-headed individuals and in this day and age, religion cannot be a barrier in love, especially in a city like Mumbai, where people work and live together, regardless of caste or creed. Kavita and I did try to make our five-year relationship work, but we couldn’t. We have gone our separate ways and I have nothing to do with Kavita anymore.”
.And now, the actor is in a ‘happy space’ because he has found love again. Nawab is in a relationship with Los Angeles-based cinematographer Diya Balki. Nawab told Media , “I think I have found my soulmate in Diya. I believe that everything happens for the best, and currently I am in a happy state of mind. After my break-up with Kavita, I grew closer to Diya, who has been an old friend. I’ll soon be going to LA for a two-month workshop. I’m looking forward to that.”
Meanhwile, rumour has it that Kavita, 35, is dating old friend Ronit Biswas (seen in center in the picture below).
