They were nowhere to be seen in the flurry of Bollywood Diwali parties and skipped all the starry shenanigans which followed the arrival of British band Coldplay in Mumbai.

Arjun was conspicuous by his absence at Manish Malhotra's 50th birthday bash too, especially as both Arjun and Mehr have been friends with the fashion designer for decades. All of Bollywood was gathered at Taj Lands End but Arjun was nowhere to be seen. decided to find out the reason for this disappearance and what we found out, made our jaws drop.

Sources close to the couple told us that Arjun Rampal has turned to spirituality. Yes, the handsome actor has swapped after-parties for temple visits and can often be spotted at Siddhivinayak and Amba Devi shrines.

"After years of rumours of an impending divorce, Arjun and Mehr are finally in a happy place and want to avoid the external influences which are common parlance at a Bollywood party," said the source.

Infact, Arjun only wants professional ties with his former industry friends now. He has instead returned to his old circle of friends, the people he used to hang out with while he was still a model. Arjun and Mehr have been hanging out with Surily Goel (Fashion Designer) Mozez Singh (Filmmaker) and Abhishek Kapoor and his wife Pragya Yadav.

But why the transformation? The answer seems closely linked to Arjun's acting career which is again on an upswing after a lull but still has a fair share of valleys.

Arjun's career had nosedived after he famously fell out with Shah Rukh during the making of the 2011 sci-fi flick RA.One.

And this past month, two of Arjun's films hit theatres, Rock On 2 and Kahaani 2.

While Rock On 2 tanked at the box-office, Kahaani 2 too did not prove to be a hit.

Then there is Daddy. Arjun plays gangster Arun Gawli in the film but he may have run into legal trouble, thanks to his decision to meet Gawli at a city hospital to prep for the role. (Forgotten Police Report Against Arjun Rampal Comes Back To Life, Dec 9 2016)

No wonder, Mr Rampal has turned to the gods in such times...
