About Personal Life and Education:-

Rajput’s personal relationships have been the subject of widespread media attention. In 2011, Rajput publicly proposed to his Pavitra Rishta co-star Ankita Lokhande during a national broadcast of the dance competition show Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa;both of them had participated in the show as competing contestants.

The couple began dating after their first meeting on the set of Pavitra Rishta, where they had been cast as husband and wife to each other.In 2012, they began living together, and reports of an imminent marriage between the two occasionally cropped up in the media. In an interview, Rajput stated that marriage and cohabitation were no different and that it was hypocritical to treat the former as sacred and the latter as a crime.

In 2014, rumours that they were already secretly married due to family pressure were denied by the couple. In January 2016, Rajput confirmed that a lavish wedding would take place in December, but the relationship ended prior to that, with the pair maintaining silence on the reasons for the cancellation.

After the breakup, Rajput’s relationship status became the subject of speculation and gossip.

He was rumored to be dating his Raabta co-star Kriti Sanon which was denied by both of them. In 2017, Rajput courted controversy when he came out in support of the producers of Padmaavat whose sets were vandalised by members of the Rajput Karni Sena. That same year, he became the co-owner of Delhi Gladiators, a team in Super Boxing League. In preparation for his role in Chanda Mama Door Ke, he was given the opportunity to train at NASA where he intended to go back and complete his instructor training, aspiring to be chosen for the 2024 Artemis program. Retaining his interest in astronomy and astrophysics, he purchased the high end Meade LX-600 16″ telescope for stargazing purposes. He also had a collection of 125 books including a six-volume theoretical physics series. Rajput stated in an August 2017 interview that his collection was not for film research, but covered personal interests in multiple disciplines, including cognitive science and behavioral economics. He was reportedly an avid reader who would bring books during tours for film shooting.

In 2018, he was the subject of another rumour regarding his Kedarnath co-star Sara Ali Khan. The rumours were never confirmed as before the two supposedly broke up, Rajput refused to comment on the claims. Later in the next year, it was reported that he was dating actress Rhea Chakraborty and that they intended to keep the matter private.

When questioned, he reportedly unwittingly confirmed the relationship by stating that if interviewers asked questions which were only about him, he could answer at his own discretion but he would also have to ask “somebody” before confirming any details. Chakraborty and Rajput were occasionally spotted on “dates” and outings in Mumbai, and on a vacation to the Himalayan region of Ladakh.

After Rajput’s death, Chakraborty confirmed that she was his girlfriend and that he would refuse medication, relying instead on yoga and meditation.[177] According to Rajput’s father, the actor mentioned his plans to marry in 2021 but did not reveal his i BIGnded bride; Ankita Lokhande was the only girlfriend that BIGs father had known about.
