In an interview, he revealed his relationship with an anonymous girl when he was studying in the USA. Talking about that girl he said-

I was in HR college at the time… it was the first serious, long term relationship I’d been in. I think it had lasted four months… but then she cheated on me. I think I dealt with it okay; I’m a little dramatic – I’m an actor, after all – so I think I somewhere wanted to experience heartbreak anyway. There are supposed to be nine emotions, and you need to go through all of them to learn.”
