Why did Vishal Parvani and Richa Sadana end engagement? 'Family Karma' star reveals TRAGIC reason
The COVID-19 pandemic was a tough time for everybody, but it proved to be especially for the usually chirpy and playful 'Family Karma' star Vishal Parvani. The 34-year-old who has been diagnosed with Crohn's disease at a young age ended up testing positive for COVID-19. The ensuing quarantining and isolation proved detrimental not only to his mental health but also to his relationship with Richa Sadana.
'Family Karma' Season 1 ended with Vishal finally getting engaged to his girlfriend of several years- Richa. Thanks to Richa's mother Lopa aunty's disapproval of him, the couple couldn't take their relationship to the next level. But Vishal's persistence finally wore down Lopa aunty, who finally gave her blessings to him. Things seemed to be going really well for Vishal, that is until the pandemic turned out lives upside down. When Season 2 of 'Family Karma' premiered, Vishal shocked everybody by revealing that he was no longer engaged to the love of his life. Things got so bad that Richa reportedly gave him back the ring and walked away. On the show, Vishal kept the reason for their split very vague and didn't seem to be keen on getting into details of what really led the couple to call it quits. If you're curious to know the reason behind their split, then we got you covered.
Why did Vishal Parvani and Richa Sadana end their engagement?
Vishal finally revealed the reason behind their split during an episode of 'Mention It All' podcast. When he was asked about what ended his relationship with Richa, Vishal explained, "So, as you guys know, season one ended with the official engagement of me and my fiancé, Richa. You know, 2020, it was a hard year for everyone and unfortunately, things were not very smooth on that front in our relationship going through the pandemic together. We were quarantined apart, unfortunately, and that really took its toll on our relationship. Some will probably even call it a sh*t show, but it was hard, and it’s not easy to navigate being quarantined apart for such a long time – it adds another toll to our relationship that I don’t know if we were ready to handle at that time.”
The long-distance took a toll on their relationship, leading to the couple not speaking to each other for weeks after each argument. "During quarantine, we were getting into a lot of arguments and when we’re in a long-distance relationship, it’s a lot easier for either one of us to ignore the other and just stop talking and not deal with the situation at hand. There were a lot of fights, a lot of tears were happening, and it just– I guess it’s easier to just cut communication off and keep living your life," he shared.
"That’s something that I think that was her that was always ignoring me, not the other way around. I was always annoying her, trying to get a hold of her. You know if she doesn’t pick up I will dial her number another 10-20 times, I want to deal with the situation now but if she was upset with me, she could ignore me and not deal with the situation at hand, and that really took its toll on our relationship. And yeah, we didn’t speak for a couple weeks, and that’s just how it was," he added.
Vishal described his current status with Richa as "work-in-progress". Hopefully, the couple manages to work things out and get back together.
'Family Karma' Season 2 airs every Wednesday at 9/8c on Bravo.
