The two started dat­ing dur­ing the film of Aashiqui 2 (2013). They were said to have bro­ken up in 2016, but they later worked to­gether in this year’s Ok Jaanu. f re­ports are to be be­lieved, for­mer cou­ple Jen­nifer Lopez and Marc An­thony are go­ing to team up with Ed Sheeran and Bruno Mars to raise funds to help hur­ri­cane-struck Puerto Rico. The duo got mar­ried in 2004 but sep­a­rated af­ter seven years. Lopez and An­thony might have come to­gether for a good cause, but it’s still a bit un­com­mon for exes to work to­gether, mostly due to un­re­solved dif­fer­ences.


Can work­ing with your ex lead to awk­ward and un­com­fort­able sit­u­a­tions? Clin­i­cal psy­chol­o­gist, Mary Ge­orge Vargh­ese agrees, say­ing that it can be “daunt­ing and messy” The com­mon cause of heart at­tack is for­ma­tion of blood clot/s or plaque that block the coro­nary ar­ter­ies of the heart. They sup­ply oxy­gen and blood to the heart and if blocked, the heart is de­prived of oxy­gen and stops. There is no sin­gle cause for heart fail­ure but mul­ti­ple ex­ist­ing con­di­tions that can weaken the heart. Some of the causes are di­a­betes, hy­per­ten­sion, valvu­lar heart dis­ease, etc. But not all heart fail­ure cases are be­cause of a prior heart at­tack and vice versa. some­times. She ex­plains, “Firstly, break­ing up isn’t a pleas­ant ex­pe­ri­ence for any­body. So, if peo­ple are work­ing with their exes, they should nav­i­gate them­selves away from dif­fi­cult sit­u­a­tions. Re­spect your pri­or­i­ties and fo­cus on your goals, which will help you keep your emo­tional bag­gage away, if you have any. Treat them as your col­league and es­tab­lish a pro­fes­sional re­la­tion­ship. Don’t al­low your col­leagues to play the resid­ual drama.”

Your cur­rent part­ner may have is­sues with you work­ing with your ex but Vargh­ese says that a pro­fes­sional re­la­tion­ship with the ex shouldn’t be a prob­lem to the present part­ner.

She says, “It com­pletely de­pends on how cor­dial your present re­la­tion­ship is. The more se­ri­ous it is, the lower is the chance of your cur­rent part­ner hav­ing a prob­lem.”


Re­la­tion­ship ex­pert Rid­dhish Maru feels that work­ing with your ex is a risky propo­si­tion. He says, “Memories of a breakup of­ten take about six months to a year to fade away. If you are work­ing with your ex, then stop com­par­ing them to your cur­rent part­ner. Don’t dig up past is­sues. Keep in mind that you are to­gether just for work and you broke up for a rea­son. Avoid sit­u­a­tions where there could be just you and your ex. Keep your present part­ner up­dated and don’t hide any­thing from them — that may lead to fric­tion and doubt in their mind.” Re­port­edly, Ran­veer was Anushka’s first boyfriend in Bol­ly­wood af­ter they worked in Band Baaja Baaraat (2010). They were said to have bro­ken up in 2012. The duo fea­tured in the movie Dil Dhadakne Do later in 2015. Re­ports of the duo’s re­la­tion­ship first emerged in 2003. But nei­ther Sal­man nor Ka­t­rina con­firmed the ru­mours. Re­port­edly, they split in 2010. Cur­rently, they are work­ing on the up­com­ing se­quel of the movie Ek Tha Tiger (2012).
