Cezanne Khan shot to fame as Anurag Basu in Ekta Kapoor’s show Kasautii Zindagi Kay. Shweta Tiwari too became an overnight star and recognized as Prerna as in the show. Their pair created a magic on screen and they became one of the most popular small screen jodis of 2000s.
As per the reports, Cezanne and Shweta not only romanced onscreen but they also dated in real life too. However, their relationship went sour due to their personal differences. Things turned so bitter that they couldn’t even stand each other on the sets. Their personal differences led to frequent delays for the shoots and the shoots were also cancelled many times.
In an interview with a leading web portal, Cezanne recollected the time when he was in love with Shweta but they are totally strangers now.
He stated, “Yes, but that's the past and I have moved on. A lot has happened in the last few years, resulting in both of us drifting away. I would rather not go back and dig up issues that are better left buried. I would say Shweta Tiwari was my first and last mistake. I won't say more. As of now, I have nothing to do with her. She is nobody to me and I would never ever look towards anyone like her. I think I would never get close to anyone in the future who comes close to Shweta in any way."
Both the ex-lovers never shied away from showcasing their hatred towards each other after their ugly breakup. Just like Cezanne, Shweta also openly spoke about him and said, “When I started working on Kasautii... I was new to the industry and friendly with him. With the passage of time, layers of his personality unfolded and he turned out to be an artificial man whom I can't even like. I don't talk to him."
She went on to say, “Cezanne Khan is the only one person on the Kasautii sets who invites controversies. He had announced that he would get married to Geetanjali to everyone on the sets but he never did. I was never involved with him. I have better things to do in life. He probably enjoyed the publicity by dragging my name everywhere."
Today, Shweta is happily married to Abhinav Kohli while, Cezanne is single and now doing Pakistani shows.
