Just as much as we wait for that special someone to enter our life and make it worth living just by saying those three words and eight letters, the thought of parting ways with that person with whom we had once imagined a future together, is devastating. There’s a time when you both couldn’t stay away from each other even for a second, and then comes a time when you become like December and January, a moment away yet a lifetime apart. Something similar happened with the former ‘it’ couple of the Bigg Boss house, Gauahar Khan and Kushal Tandon.

Gauahar Khan and Kushal Tandon’s relationship blossomed on the most controversial reality show, Bigg Boss and it was on its seventh season that they became ‘Gaushal’. Be it Bigg Boss or Khatron Ke Khiladi, Gauahar and Kushal had each other’s back always but soon, things went downhill for them and they had parted ways. While it was an ugly breakup for Kushal and Gauahar, looks like the two have let bygones be bygones and are proving how one can be friends with their ex.
Kushal Tandon, who is on professional high as he stepped into the web world with his first series, Hum - I'm Because of Us, added another feather to his already illustrious cap as he now becomes an owner of a restaurant in Mumbai, Arbour 28. The opening event of Arbour 28 was a star-studded affair with Kushal’s close friends in attendance. And his ex-girlfriend, Gauahar Khan too marked her presence on the special day for Kushal and wishing him luck for the same, wrote, “Thank u for being an awesome host, wishing u great success with ur amazing new lounge @arbour28mumbai! Lots n lots of best wishes! with all the love! @therealkushaltandon.”
In an interview with Miss Malini, when Gauahar Khan was asked about Kushal Tandon’s first impression on her when she had walked into the Bigg Boss house and what were her thoughts on him after the show ended, she had retorted, “When I walked in actually there was not much of an impression because it was just “Hi, Hello and whatever” and we were put in two different areas, one was jahannum and one was… and then in week 1 itself when I was thrown into jahannum by the rest of the jannat crowd I think Kushal gave me a very warm welcome, and he was there for me as a friend even before knowing me as well. So the first Saturday when he took up for me and said that what Armaan did with me was really bad – I never asked him to do that, he just did it out of his own – you know, will – and I was really impressed by that, that a man can speak up for a girl without even knowing her that much!” (Also Read: Alia Bhatt Officially Becomes A Part Of The Kapoor Fam, Attends Christmas Lunch With Ranbir Kapoor)
Gauahar Khan had continued, “And then our friendship grew and then when we felt like yes we do feel specially for each other we declared it and I think it’s quite a rarity that someone actually, spoke about it. There is a lot of chemistry that happens (and has happened in the previous seasons as well) but no one’s really had the courage to speak about it and we did! So, I’m really glad that I got to know him, he’s a wonderful guy.” When probed further if they are in a relationship or not, Gauahar replied, “No, we’re not just friends. We were never just friends after we declared it. We’re more than friends – we’re special. Ya.”
Post her breakup with Kushal Tandon, Gauahar Khan had given a dignified statement about their equation to the Bombay Times, which could be read as "I have always been dignified and have known where to draw the line. It was an amazing one-and-a-half-year of relationship with him and there is no bitterness from my side. First of all, I never mentioned his name, the media made those assumptions. If you are quoting me in connection with someone else, it’s your onus and not mine. There are two golden words called ‘no comments’ and I use them very well. So, no comments. I wish everyone, who has been a part of my journey, well." (Also Read: Samantha Akkineni's 'Holiday Wish' For Fans With Hubby, Naga Chaitanya And Pet, Hash Is Beyond Funny)
