Around three years back, he was happily in love with Neeru. The couple was first seen together in TV show 'Guns & Roses' and later on dance reality show 'Nach Baliye 1' in 2005. The two also got engaged, but broke up in 2010.
Amit says he is still single since then.
"And I like it that way. Of course, there are rumors the minute I am seen with a girl. While I was shooting in Punjab with Taapsee Pannu, I went out for dinner with her. The next day we were a couple in the papers. But the truth is, I am not seeing anyone," said the actor, whose work in the 2013 film 'Kai Po Che!' was lauded.
Recalling his past relationship, he said: "All of a sudden my life fell apart. She was was the only family that I had. She transformed me from a boy into a man. When she left me, my life fell apart. I had to start from scratch."
He was told about his split from Neeru during his stay in reality show 'Bigg Boss 1' in 2006. He admits he was a "cry baby" on the show.
"I was only 22 and. therefore, just a baby. Inside 'Bigg Boss 1', emotions are constantly heightened. It's not a normal place to be in."
"On top of that, I was told my girlfriend Neeru Bajwa had left me. Can you imagine, she was my life! And to be told inside there where I had no way of ascertaining the truth, that she had left me...it shattered me," said Amit.
But he found a new lease of life, ultimately.
"I used the money I got for 'Bigg Boss' to go to the Lee Strasberg Acting School in New York where I learnt to be single again," he added.
