Harleen Sethi became the centre of the limelight ever since she came into a relationship with Uri: The Surgical Strike actor Vicky Kaushal. The two were going strong in their dating game for a couple of months but soon everything went haywire between them. After Uri's success, Vicky Kaushal allegedly didn't want to continue his relationship with her since she's a lesser-known actress as compared to himself. Harleen was heartbroken, as we can see by the Instagram posts she has been liking and the heartfelt poem about breakup she wrote.
In an interview with a leading entertainment portal, Harleen Sethi opened up about the gossip surrounding her relationship with Vicky Kaushal. She said, "Honestly, it did not bother me but it did bother my family and friends. As an individual, we all have our own identities. I was associated with a movie star and I haven't done a movie yet, doesn't make me any less. I still love myself. And I would love to be known as Harleen Sethi. I am Harleen Sethi. I think it will be unfair to call someone else my ex-boyfriend, right?"
Harleen also believes that her breakup with Vicky Kaushal also helped her act well in web series Broken. She said, "I think for an actor it is essential to experience all sort of emotions in real life. In a way, it is good that what happened, happened."
She added, "From where I started. To where I've come. I didn't design this path. His will was welcome. Fearlessly hustling. Energetic and bustling. I found who I was. A small fish in a big pond . I enjoyed the eccentricities. Performances and anxieties. Feeling alive everyday. Making a mark in my own way. Link ups don't build me. Breakups don't break me. Wins don't fill me. Failures don't kill me. I feel complete. I feel sufficient. I have my own swag. I am my own tag. #iammyowntag #harleensethi."
Vicky Kaushal recently confirmed that he is single now during an award show. He said, "Hanji ekdum single. Ye dekho ekdum akela." When the interviewer again insisted to confirm if he is telling the truth, the actor said, "Single. Ekdum."
