The two had been dating since three years and had been friends since 2011. The couple first met on the set of Meenakshi Sagar's Ramayana (they had played Lakshman and Sita on the show). They bonded during the course of the show and soon their friendship blossomed into romance.
A source close to Tellychakkar said, "Neha and Neil have been really close and serious about each other. But due to some personal differences, the two parted ways a few months back. Both of them are jolted by the development and are trying their best to overcome from the breakup."
