Says a source, "Raima and Kalikesh were very close. They looked very good as a couple. Everyone thought that their relationship would get more serious, but sadly, that did not happen. They parted ways, but not on an ugly note.

The main reason was that their careers were as different as chalk and cheese. Their work did not allow them to meet much and the relationship lost its fizz. They were together for only four months."

Unlike most actors, Raima did not beat around the bush about her love life, when we asked her about it. She frankly admitted that she was involved with Kalikesh towards the end of last year. "We were together, but the relationship did not last long."

"He is in Bhubaneshwar and I am in Mumbai. We didn't make much headway because of the distance between the two cities." Despite repeated attempts, Kalikesh was unavailable for comments.

Who is Kalikesh?

KALIKESH SINGH Deo comes from the royal family of Bolangir and is the youngest member of the Orissa State Assembly. Elected to the House in 2004, he won from Saintala Assembly constituency, which was previously held by the Indian National Congress. He completed his schooling from the Doon School, Dehradun and graduated in Economics from St Stephen's College, Delhi University. He represented India in shooting and basketball. He is currently the BJD Bolangir District President and member of the Public Accounts Committee and Energy Committee of Orissa Assembly.
