On the other hand, there are some celebs who are as candid about their breakups like they are for their relationship status.

Check out the list of several celebrities who spoke candidly about their break-up for the world to hear and know:

Deepika Padukone

Her break-up with Ranbir Kapoor left Deepika wounded. In an interview with Verve in 2010, Deepika opened up and said, “I was foolish enough to give him a second chance because he begged and pleaded, despite the fact that everyone around me said he was still straying. Then I actually caught him red-handed. It took me a while to get out.” She also spoke about her breakup during an episode of Koffee With Karan. “It was very, very difficult for me because somewhere that relationship became my world,” she told Karan Johar.

Ranbir Kapoor

Deepika Padukone and Ranbir Kapoor’s break-up the talk of the town certainly. The couple broke up after dating for two years, and Ranbir took the blame for screwing things up. “Yes, I have cheated, out of immaturity, out of inexperience, out of taking advantage of certain temptations, out of callousness. You realise it now, when you grow up and you value it more, why be in a relationship, why be committed to someone when you cannot be committed? I’ve realised that now.”

Katrina Kaif

Post her break-up with Ranbir Kapoor, Katrina had said, “Whether it was, how difficult it was, is honestly something that will stay with me. And only with me. You can never say about the future, but definitely not right now. Whatever it was, however it was, it will always stay with me.”

Shahid Kapoor

Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor Khan were together with each other for almost five years before they called it quits. Shahid, who is otherwise known to be a very private person, had said at the time, “Breaking up with Kareena was tough, it did hurt. But as an actor, I have never let anything come in the way of my work. I have always given my best. I will. I have said this right from the time ‘the breakup’ happened that if a good movie comes and the director tells me that no one else except Kareena will suit a certain role, then I have no right to say that I won’t do the film.”

Talking about the breakup, Kareena too had once told Anupama Chopra, “Of course, destiny had its own plan and life took its own course. A lot happened in the making of this film (Jab We Met) and Tashan and our lives… We all kind of went our separate ways. And this beauty of a movie came out of it.”

Ranveer Singh

Ranveer Singh and Anushka Sharma reportedly started dating after their debut film Band Baaja Baaraat. Despite the breakup, they starred together in Zoya Akhtar’s Dil Dhadakne Do. At one time, Ranveer had said, “I have great affection for her brother and her parents and she will always be a special person to me. It was great to reunite with her. I am really really happy with all the success she has been seeing lately and I am her genuine well-wisher.”

Anushka Sharma

Anushka too has always been extremely cordial about working with her ex. “The thing is, I’m very fond of Ranveer. And I know he’s genuinely fond of me. He has been my friend. We both had that success together. It was a special bond that will remain.”

Bipasha Basu

Bipasha and John Abraham were touted to be the hottest couple in Bollywood and they dated for close to a decade. In an interview with The Times Of India in 2012, the actress said, “Though no break-up is a good break-up, time heals everything, including broken friendships… But cheating, infidelity, and deceit are generally tough to forgive, and in those cases, real friendship is not possible.”

“We have grown out of the relationship and somewhere down the line, I’d point a finger at myself and say that I probably didn’t match up to a lot of things. We both had different visions for this relationship. I probably wasn’t ready to commit at a point of time when the relationship needed a culmination,” the actor meanwhile told The Times Of India.

Shilpa Shetty

Shilpa Shetty, had several times, been candid about her relationship with Akshay Kumar. Speaking to a leading tabloid in 2000, the actress had said, “I never imagined that he could two-time me (with Twinkle Khanna) and that too all along our relationship. Akshay Kumar used me and conveniently dropped me after he found someone else. The only person I was upset with was him.”
