Dimpy has dated –
- Neil Shah – While on Swayamvar‘s Rahul Dulhaniya Le Jayega in 2010, it was revealed that, Dimpy was dating a guy named Neil Shah from Queensland, Australia. This sparked an extremely intense situation between Rahul and Dimpy ever since. However, she stated, that they had broken up a year ago and Neil was obsessive about her.
- Rahul Mahajan (2010-2015) – Reality show entertainer and former pilot Rahul Mahajan and Dimpy met and married one another on the reality show Rahul Dulhaniya Le Jayega in 2010. Despite the complication that the two-faced on the show, the couple who was deeply in love at first started to see a downfall in their relationship due to untrustworthy statements. This led things to disturbing circumstances as not even in a year into their marriage, Dimpy alleged domestic violence against Rahul and walked out of their home in Worli. She had stated that “Rahul beat me up early on Thursday morning after waking me up to know the contents of a message that had beeped on my phone. When I asked him to go back to sleep, he flew into a rage and began hitting me. He punched, kicked and dragged me by the hair.” Thereafter, the couple stayed in the limelight for all the wrong reasons. In May 2014, Dimpy and Rahul mutually filed for immediate divorce. However, they were granted a legal divorce only in February 2015. It is said that the reason for their break up was due to a suspected extra-marital affair that she had with her now-husband Rohit Roy. Reports also suggested that Dimpy had flocked to Dubai, while Rahul continued to reside in Mumbai itself.
- Rohit Roy (2015-Present) – Shortly after her divorce with Rahul Mahajan, Dimpy got married to her childhood crush Rohit Roy who is a businessman settled in Dubai. The duo grew up in the same town and had a crush on one another during their early years. However, fate did not give them the chance to confess their feelings for one another at the time. Later, in 2013, the two bumped into one another and stayed in touch ever since. The duo began spending time and grew into liking each other. Then, in October 2015, they got engaged and the following month the couple tied the knot. Dimpy and Rohit had their first child a girl named Reanna Roy on June 20, 2016.
