Krushna Abhishek’s recent announcement that he will tie the knot with his longtime live-in girlfriend Kashmera Shah took everyone by surprise. According to the buzz doing the rounds, the actor-comedian’s sudden decision had apparently something to do strangely with Tanushree Dutta.
The Aashiq Banaya Aapne actress who disappeared from B-Town to be on a spiritual trip and even shaved her head, is now giving B-Town another shot. In the past, Tanushree has featured with Krushna in a TV comedy show.
Says an insider, “Kashmira felt that Krushna was getting close to Tanushree. They had a showdown and Kashmera gave him an ultimatum to take their relationship to the next level that resulted in Krushna declaring that a wedding was on the cards.”
Adds the source, “Kashmira has been living in with Krushna for almost seven years. She was keen on tying the knot with him, but Krushna’s family had reservations about her. His star uncle Govinda, too, had showed his displeasure in the past. This is the reason Krushna had evaded commitment.”
It is reliably learnt that a while back Kashmera and Tanushree bumped into each other at the airport when Kashmera took on Tanushree and her alleged closeness to Krushna.
The source informs, “Tanushree was taken aback when confronted by Kashmera. Tanushree had attended Govinda’s son Yash’s birthday party where Krushna was present. This perhaps led to speculation about Krushna and Tanushree which reached Kashmera who gave an earful to Krushna.”
All this led to Krushna even going down on his knees and popping the question to Kashmera on a dance reality show recently.
Incidentally, a decade ago, Kashmera was married to US-based producer Brad Listermann which ended in a divorce. They had together produced the film, My Bollywood Bride.
