Dia Mirza announced that she and her husband are separating mutually. Close to that another announcement came in that Kanika Dhillon, who is Prakash Kovelamudi's wife also announced separation.
Media went crazy with these two announcements and connected the two. They went on to say that Kanika was the reason that Dia is divorcing her husband Sahil. In reality Kanika has never met Sahil.
Kanika tweeted, "Laughable, despicable, irresponsible! Fiction writing is my job! Can tabloids be a little more responsible please? Just because 2 news items come at the same time, they can't be interlinked! It's not a potpourri! Have NEVER met Dia/Sahil in my ENTIRE life! Please get over it and let us get back to work!"
Dia Mirza too came in support of Kanika. She wrote, "What is even more unfortunate is that our colleagues names are being tarnished and maligned by this media. As a woman I will not stand for another woman's name being used so irresponsibly to perpetuate a lie."
"There is absolutely no truth to the alleged reports and no third person is the reason for Sahil and I to part ways. We have requested the media to be graceful and allow us this time for some privacy. Really hope they can respect that," she wrote.
