2016 saw some of the biggest and shocking breakups in Telly Ville. While we still are reeling over Sushant Singh Rajput and Ankita Lokhande calling it quits, somewhere we are still hoping for Upen Patel and Karishma Tanna to patch things up.
Here are the television couples who broke our hearts by breaking up in 2016:
1. Sushant Singh Rajput - Ankita Lokhande
Sushant Singh Rajput and Ankita Lokhande rose to fame when they both starred together in Pavitra Rishta. They were one of the most precious couples in Telly Ville. Then SSR broke into Bollywood with Kai Po Che. This year, however, saw the demise of the couple and rumours were rife that Ankita was insecure of SSR and that Sushant cheated on Ankita. Sushant put all the rumours to rest with a single tweet:
"Neither she was an alcoholic nor I am a womaniser. People fo Grow apart & its unfortunate. Period!!," his tweet reads.
2. Upen Patel - Karishma Tanna
Upen Patel and Karishma Tanna were one of the hottest couples of Telly Ville whose love blossomed in the Bigg Boss house. Upen even gave her a promise ring when they had participated in Nach Baliye. But in 2016, the couple called it quits as Upen confirmed through Twitter on their split.
Karishma spoke about the breakup with us and stated, "Sometimes there is no answer to what went wrong. Sometimes two wonderful people or good souls are not meant be together. That’s what happened to us. Upen is a wonderful soul. We connected very strongly, but things didn’t move the way we wanted it to. It’s not that I don’t want to settle down or I am jumping from one relationship to another. We both wanted to settle down, but if we don’t see our future together then its better to part ways."
3. Shaleen Bhanot - Dalljiet Kaur
In one of the messiest divorces in Telly Ville this year, Shaleen Bhanot and Dalljiet Kaur's marriage takes the cake. 
Dalljiet had initially claimed of physical abuse a demand of dowry from Shaleen. Shaleen defended himself and stated that he had never asked for dowry and that he has never cheated on her. He also said that there has been no physical violence either. 
4. Aashka Goradia - Rohit Bakshi
Aashka Goradia and Rohit Bakshi were one of the fortunate celebrity couples to be together for 10 years. But unfortunately, 2016 saw the demise of the couple.
Despite a few difficulties, the two tried to make it work but because of communication gaps and compatibility issues - they eventually decided to call it quits, amicably.
5. Nausheen Sardar Ali - Rahil Azam
Kkusum fame Nausheen Sardar Ali and Rahil Azam were in a relationship for three years and were reportedly living in together. As Nausheen was all set to introduce Rahil to her parents, she supposedly learned of his infidelity. 
Nausheen, in an interview, stated that she does not believe in washing dirty linens in public. 
6. Anas Rashid - Rati Pandey
Anas Rashid (Diya Aur Baati Hum) and Rati (Hitler Didi) were in a strong relationship together and there were rumours that they were living in together.
The two, however, split in 2016. Some claim that Anas' family did not approve of Rati while some suggest that it was Anas' reluctance to settle down.
7. Nitin Sahrawat - Vaishnavi Dhanraj
Nitin Sahrawat and Vaishnavi Dhanraj who were married called it quits and got divorced in January. Vaishnavi had stated that she blamed Nitin for their marriage to fall apart and also claimed of domestic violence. 
Nitin in a post on Facebook shared his side of the story and spoke against all those who wrote against him. In the post, he said that when he asked Vaishnavi for her reasoning to end their marriage, she said, "You don't hug me enough." 
8. Vivian Dsena - Vahbiz Dorabjee
Vivian Dsena and Vahbiz Dorabjee were one of the most adorable couples in Telly Ville but the year 2016 saw them growing apart. The married couple now live separately and there were rumours rife about Vahbiz's friend and actor Vipul Roy being the primary reason. But Vivian and Vahbiz both denied his involvement.
