Small screen's much-loved real-life couple Aamir Ali and Sanjeeda Sheikh are reportedly headed for separation. The couple, who grooved us all with its PDA in Nach Baliye 3, had married in 2012 after dating for over seven years.

Speaking to Spotboye, a source said, "Yeah, Sanjeeda and Aamir are not staying together since sometime. They are having issues". The source further added, "The problems are at an initial stage, and they have been piling up over the time. Also, life on social media is far from reality."
