Priya Banerjee reveals the reason why she and Prateik Babbar kept their relationship a secret
On Valentine’s Day, Prateik Babbar and Priya Banerjee confirmed their relationship with an Instagram post. Some time last year, rumours began to spread about Prateik and Priya’s alleged romance. The two, however, neither confirmed nor denied them. Priya has broken her silence about how she and Prateik met after keeping their relationship secret for an entire year. “As you know, we’re good friends. Friends introduced us, and it was instant chemistry. We’re both laid-back and entertaining, two traits we share in common. We’d rather be at the office or at home, doing what we need to do “In a recent interview, Priya made the following statement. Priya shared with Hindustan Times the reaction they received to their Valentine’s Day post, saying, “It meant a lot to us that everyone cheered for us. Since we hadn’t anticipated its success, the realisation that it had gone viral was a cause for great joy. Everyone was happy for their loved ones, because happiness is what truly matters, as everyone knows.” Priya went on to explain that she and Prateik prefer to keep their romantic lives private. They’d rather talk about their acting careers than their personal lives. She thinks that the topic of relationships automatically becomes the centre of attention. “We put in a lot of effort to have people discuss our work, and then all of a sudden they’d rather hear about who we’re seeing than what we’re doing. So, secrecy was important to us, and even now we want to make sure it’s not the main attraction. Always prioritising one’s work is essential “Finally, she drew a conclusion. Prateik’s first wife was Sanya Sagar. On January 23, 2019, they were officially married, but they reportedly broke up during the lockdown. He recently starred as a migrant worker affected by the COVID-19 shutdown in Madhur Bhandarkar’s Indian Lockdown. On the other hand, Priya has appeared in a wide variety of films, such as KISS: Keep It Simple Stupid, Baar Baar Dekho, Baarish, Bhanwar, and many more.
