Though they never publically announced that they are dating, they were often spotted together and many times they shared their lovey-dovey pictures on their social handles. So, what went wrong? Scroll down to know.
Is Sara's Mom Amrita Singh The Reason?
When Sara and Kartik started shooting for Love Aaj Kal, they started falling for each other. According to a report, Amrita Singh wasn't happy with Sara dating Kartik Aaryan or anybody else for that matter at this early stage of her career. Amrita Singh herself had many affairs with the biggest stars of her time and she is aware of how these love affairs had a negative impact on her career. She didn't want Sara Ali Khan to face something similar so she kept interfering and asked Sara to put an end to this affair.
Profession Before Love?
Many other reports also suggest that Sara Ali Khan and Kartik Aaryan have decided to part ways to pay more attention to their respective careers. For a couple of months, their relationship has been stealing all the limelight and they didn't really like it. Sara and Kartik wish to focus more on their professional life and this is reportedly another reason why they have decided to end their affair.
When Sara And Kartik Were Together
It all became the talk of the town when Sara Ali Khan publically announced that she had a crush on Kartik Aaryan while she was on Karan Johar's chat show. Soon after the show, there were dating rumours of the two. However, back then, Kartik Aaryan had cleared the air. He said, "I have never said that I want to go on a date with someone. I was constantly being asked about other people wanting to go on dates with me. I've never spoken about Sara and me to the media. When Sara expressed her feeling, it was the first time an actor openly confessed her liking for an actor."
Kartik and Sara were soon signed for Imtiaz Ali's Love Aaj Kal. Though the movie failed to work at the box office, it got Sara and Kartik closer.
