Eastern Eye ranked Krystle as the 19th Sexiest Asian Women in 2013. With her feminine grace and star power, D’Souza is indeed one of those young Indian actors who inspires people with their charisma and confidence. No wonder then that Krystle’s social media presence is equally enthusiastic. With 3.6 million followers on photo sharing site Instagram, Krystle is a celebrity in even the digital world.


As in any celebrity forum, Krystle D’Souza’s personal life also invites media frenzy. Particularly, her ‘relationship’ with Karan Tacker has been the talk of the town. The duo met on the sets of their hit show Ek Hazaro Mein Meri Behna Hai and made for an adorable couple.

Rumors of the two dating started surfacing even since their crackling on  screen chemistry was well received by the viewers. However, none of them has either confirmed or denied the relationship.

Interestingly, Karan had revealed that he was quite possessive of Krystle. That might seem to be the hint at a proper relationship with his co- star but the fact that the handsome actor is generally possessive about his close friends as well, leaves us inconclusive.

Krystle, on her part, has ‘enjoyed’ the media speculation about her alleged relationship with Tacker. But she has never indulged any details for us to make any assumption. She, however, spoke at length about how she looks up to and is inspired by Karan, and even though it’s something undefinable between the ‘close friends’, D’Souza still cherishes the special bond they share.

With a strong fan base and a repertoire of television shows, coupled with her trademark style and charismatic demeanor, while balancing it with the perfect mix of confidence and class, Krystle D’Souza is one telly artiste we all adore and admire!
