It was on the set of their show Udaariyaan that they came close. Well, Isha is now single whereas Abhishek is still moving on. He still has feelings for Isha, but the latter has completely friendzoned him. Isha also called it all Abhishek’s misunderstanding. After a long debate about who got physically violent first, Isha and Abhishek finally stopped screaming and fighting out of respect for Salman before entering the BB house.
