It’s unfortunate that Sourav becomes the victim of such things.”Ganguly's father Chandidas believed that photographs of the rumoured couple were altered.After two years, actress Nagma confirmed the news, “Whatever one says, nobody has denied anything. As long as there is no denial of each other’s existence in each other’s life, any person can say anything they want. There was a career at stake, besides other things, so one had to part. One had to weigh a lot of things, rather than be on an ego trip and insist on being together.” she quoted.
