While heading to the ‘Koffee with Karan’ sets, actors have to be ready with answers regarding the true and untrue stories regarding their love life, as queries on that by Karan Johar are a given. And it was no different when Sidharth Malhotra and Aditya Roy Kapur made an appearance in the latest episode that was aired on Sunday. The duo was quizzed on not one, but multiple women who they allegedly dated, however, the answer was ‘no’ and the actors claimed they are single.
Aditya was rumoured to be dating his ‘Daawat-e-Ishq' co-star Parineeti Chopra. But when asked about it on the show, he said, “I was never in a relationship with Parineeti.”
Not the one to back down without putting the stars in a spot, KJo was ready with his next question, about rumours of dating model Diva Dhawan.
Aditya denied it again, saying they have been friends for long, but their appearance together for dinner once was to blame for it.
“She’s a lovely girl and an old friend of mine. We met at a fashion show many years ago and we are good friends. We went out for dinner one night at this famous restaurant that everyone is going to nowadays, Bastian. So we got papped and stories started. Completely false stories.”
On the other hand, Sidharth was linked to his ‘A Gentleman’ co-star Jacqueline Fernandez. The actor clarified they weren’t a couple but bonded big time over common interests and during the shooting.
“Jacqueline is wonderful. I always have fun when I am hanging out with her. Jackie and I really bonded when we were doing A Gentleman. But we were never dating. We just enjoy being friends and hanging out. We have lots in common. She's crazy, she's always happy."
While ‘A Gentleman’ released in 2017, the actor was recently linked to Kiara Advani and rumours even stated Karan had played cupid.
The actor quipped he wished he had as much fun as he was reading about himself in the tabloids, but he reiterated he is single and will collaborate with the ‘lovely’ actress.
"The amount of rumours I have had in the tabloids, I'm having lesser fun in real life. I wish they were true. Kiara is lovely. We are going to work together in future. But I'm single."
However, Sidharth didn’t deny that he was in a relationship with Alia Bhatt and clarified that there was no bitterness between them after they broke up.
"We haven't met after it. Our relationship is civil. I don't think it's bitter. It's been a while. I have known her for much longer even before we dated. I gave my first ever shot with her in SOTY, I was crazy, and there is so much history"
He added, "There is a reason why two people decide not to be together. There were lots of ups and downs. When you take yourself from a situation, you look at all the happy and good memories."
