Varun Badola talks about his friendship with his former co-star Sangita Ghosh.

Varun Badola and Sangita Ghosh were praised for their solid on-screen chemistry on ‘Des Mein Niklla Hoga Chand’.

Varun Badola became a household name on Indian television, thanks to the phenomenal success of his show ‘Des Mein Niklla Hoga Chand’, in which his on-screen chemistry with his co-star Sangita Ghosh was much loved and appreciated by the audience. The show aired from 2001 to 2005. Back then, rumours were rife that Varun and Sangita were dating each other. However, Varun has finally addressed those speculations in a recent interview.

Varun clarified that the two were just “great friends” during his chat with Siddharth Kannan. When questioned about whether there was ever any romantic relationship between the two, Varun said, “Nahi hua tha. Agar hua hota to I had every opportunity to take it forward aur kyuki sab kuch to hamare favour me hi tha na. (It didn’t happen. If it had, I had every opportunity to take it forward because everything was in our favour). We were the romantic couple of Indian Television.”

Varun Badola continued, “Aur hum log aisa nahi tha, party varty karte the saath me. Jitni baar milna julna hota tha, sab saath me ghum rahe fir rahe, sab kuch ho raha hai. (And we were not like that; we used to party together. Whenever we needed to meet, we were always together, roaming around together) But, we were great friends. And we were just friends and nothing else. Yeh cheez mai aaj bhi bolunga uske bare me. (This thing I would still say about her.) Because I give her almost all the credit for the chemistry that the two of us had.”

When asked whether his wife, actress Rajeshwari Sachdev, ever felt “insecure” due to the dating rumours, Varun Badola replied, “Nahi nahi nahi. Uske doston ke saath usko dekhoge to mujhhse yeh puchoge ki tum insecure kyu nahi hote ho usko dekhke? Hum logo ne yeh ek cheez hum dono ke beech me relationship me hai hi nahi. (No, no, no. If you look at her friends, you’d ask me why I’m not insecure seeing her with them. The thing is, there was never such a thing between us in our relationship)… Hum logon ki relationship pe is cheez pe based hi nahi ki ki uski ladki ki taraf tume kaise dekha? (Our relationship isn’t based on how did you even look at that girl.)”

Varun Badola was last seen in Akshay Kumar’s film Mission Raniganj.
