When you are in the film industry, link up rumours become a part of the celebrity lives. Rumours have been rife about Fatima Sana Shaikh dating Aparshakti Khurana. The ‘Dangal’ (2016) co-actors have been close pals since the film and these days have been catching up at coffee shops and restaurants. But, Aparshakti Khurrana who is married to Akriti Khurrana, has denied all such link rumours stating they are all close friends.
When Bollywood Hungama asked Aparshakti Khurrana about what’s brewing between the two of them, he simply addressed it by saying that they have been catching up after a very busy year. “It’s definitely not easy to deal with such things. I come from the world where these rumours are made forcibly. I was doing these three films back to back (‘Dangal’, ‘Badrinath Ki Dulhania’ and ‘Stree’). At the same time, Fatima Sana Shaikh was busy with her shoot, Sanya Malhotra was busy with her shoot. We couldn’t meet during this phase. The moment we all got free from our film schedules, we all met. And by chance, my wife (Akriti Khurana) is doing MBA right now. So, she is not here for a year. That is why she did not meet them with me for the first time. Otherwise, we all meet together. If my wife was here, so these stories would not have happened. That’s about it,” said Aparshakti.
As of now, Aparshakti Khurrana is busy with the promotions of his upcoming film, ‘Stree’. The film stars Rajkummar Rao, Shraddha Kapoor, Pankaj Tripathi, Abhishek Banerjee. Produced by Dinesh Vijan and directed by Amar Kaushik, the film will release on August 21, 2018.
