Relationships in this showbiz world are very delicate. One step goes wrong and the couple takes the decision to part ways. As much as all the Bollywood and television buffs rejoice any celebrity engagement and wedding, they equally get shattered when any friction happens in their love nest. Exactly this has happened to one of the popular television actresses and Shakti — Astitva Ke Ehsaas Ki fame, Garima Jain.
For the ones who don’t know, Garima had recently gotten engaged to a guy of her parents’ choice named Raahul Sarraf, who happens to be a diamond merchant. Garima had happily announced her engagement with Raahul on June 3, 2019, by changing her relationship status on Facebook. Later, on June 30, 2019, she had taken to her Instagram handle and had shared the news with her Insta family.

In a media interaction after she had exchanged the rings, Garima had told that she had trusted her mother for her choice as she has seen many relationships going kaput. And Raahul was her parents’ choice. But now, it seems things have fallen apart for the duo and they have mutually called off their engagement. Yes, that’s what you read! In an interview with the Bombay Times, Garima shared the reason behind calling off her engagement and was quoted as saying, “I think we rushed into the relationship. We hardly got to know each other.”
She further added, “Soon after the roka, we started having compatibility issues. It could be because we belong to different industries. Initially, it was about him not being comfortable with me shooting intimate scenes and wearing short clothes on screen, which snowballed. We tried to work it out, but things didn’t improve, and rather than dragging it and making it dirty, we mutually decided to end the relationship.” (Checkout: Khushi Kapoor Twins In Blue With Sister Shanaya Kapoor At Wedding Of Her Mom, Sridevi’s Friend’s Son)
In an earlier interview with the Bombay Times, Garima had shared how she met Raahul and was quoted as saying, “My family got to know about him through a match-maker. Raahul and I met a couple of times before we decided to take the plunge. I met him in May, and we formalised it a couple of weeks ago.”
In the same chat, she had also shared the details about her then prince charming and had revealed, “Raahul is a diamond merchant, who recently moved to India after working in London for several years. He now operates his business from Mumbai. He is an honest guy and that’s what I like best about him. He is not from the industry and doesn’t know anything about it. I thought I would have to compromise professionally, and I was prepared for it, but I am glad that he doesn’t expect me to stop working after marriage. We will be tying the knot very soon.” (Do Read: Ravi Dubey Posts A Heartfelt Birthday Wish For His Real-Life ‘Sasuma’, Aradhana Mehta)
In an interaction with a leading media portal, Garima’s fiancé, Raahul had shared the details of their meeting and how they fell for each other. He had remarked, “We met through a matrimonial website, and I met Garima’s mother first. She liked me and suggested I meet Garima. You wouldn’t believe that we spoke on the phone at 2 PM in the afternoon, and we connected so well that we met that evening itself. After a three-hour meeting, we were still talking all night. We plan to get married by the end of this year. For work purposes, I used to travel very frequently. I used to spend four months in America and four months in London, but now I will spend more time in Mumbai and call this city my home.”
He was further probed to tell about Garima being linked up to her co-star in the recent past. To this, he had quipped, “Garima has denied all the speculations and put rumours to rest. I would just say that everyone has a past, and that is none of my concern. All that matters to me is our present and our future together. Every day, you evolve and become a better personality and human being.”
Sharing the news of her engagement, Garima had taken to her official Instagram handle and had shared a couple picture, which seemed to be from their engagement ceremony. Along with the same, she had worded her post as “It’s time to tell you all that I have found my prince charming – Raahul Sharaf. A guy with a golden heart who has moved to India from London. It’s his birthday today and I couldn’t think of a better ocassion to make this announcement. With all of your blessings and good wishes, we hope to have an everlasting fairytale life filled with love and happiness. I am blessed to have found a soulmate who constantly thinks of my happiness and wellbeing. I am truly blessed.” (Don’t Miss: Urvashi Dholakia’s Sons, Sagar And Kshitij Believe Ex-BF, Anuj Sachdeva Is Perfect For Their Mom)
