Jigyasa Singh aka Thapki clarifies that she’s not in love with Ankit Bathla


Thapki Pyar Ki’s lead actress Jigyasa Singh says that she is just good friends with both Ankit Bathla and Manish Goplani

It is double trouble for Jigyasa Singh. While the Jaipur girl’s performance as Thapki in Thapki Pyar Ki has got good reviews, she had made news for her personal life as well. She has been linked to both her co-stars, Ankit Bathla and Manish Goplani. A source from the sets told Bombay Times, “Jigyasa and Ankit split recently. Initially, there was awkwardness, but the former lovebirds seem cordial now. Soon after the split, Jigyasa started dating Manish.”

However, the actress denied that she had a romantic alliance with either of her co-stars. She said, “I am not here to date. Also, I feel that I am not dating material. Ankit is a friend and we chill together on the set. He helped me initially as I was new to the industry . We have not stopped talking to each other, we have just become more careful about our conduct. My statement ` Ankit and I are more than good friends’ was misconstrued and people assumed we were in a relationship. I had a chat with him and we decided to refrain from posting our pictures on social media and making such statements.”

It is known that Manish Goplani also belongs to Jigyasa’s hometown, Jaipur. He did theatre there for a long time. When asked about her proximity to Manish aka Bihaan Pandey in real life, she stated, ” Manish and I have played spouses in the regional show Chore Tera Gaon Bada Pyara. It’s just a coincidence that we were paired opposite each other in all the four shows that I had auditioned for. Unfortunately , those projects never took off. I was surprised to learn that he will be opposite me in this show as well. He is my best friend -we fight, argue and come back together.”
