A cricketer dating a Bollywood actress, isn't it like hitting a relationship jackpot? Well, both cricketers and actors/actresses are trendsetters in their own fields. Paps follow them everywhere, hence, the combination is constantly in the news. Some cute cricketer-actor jodies have already been inspiring us with their happily ever after love stories. Zaheer Khan-Sagarika Ghatke, Yuvraj Singh-Hazel Keech, Harbhajan Singh-Geeta Basra and #Virushka are proof enough!
And now there's another cricket-Bollywood couple in the making (oh, well, it's confirmed now). Back in June, it was reported that Hero actress Athiya Shetty has found love in cricketer KL Rahul. We know, we know he has also been linked with Akansha Ranjan Kapoor (Alia Bhatt's BFF) and south siren Nidhhi Agerwal. But, this time, someone from the fashion industry has confirmed the news. Athiya and KL Rahul are together, and very much in love!
Fashion designer Vikram Phadnis (may have) revealed the truth with his cryptic comments on Athiya's Instagram post. Take a look:
Looks like Athiya wasn't too happy with this public revelation. Vikram's comments were on Athiya's inspirational post, which she posted yesterday. Here's what she had shared:
And here is some more proof:
Stop it already, Vikram, we've got the hint! *wink*
Rumours were abuzz that the Indian batsman and Suniel Shetty's daughter are dating each other. "Rahul and Athiya have been going around with each other. They started dating since a little before February, this year. And things are quite serious," a source had told an entertainment daily. Now, thanks to Vikram, we know what's happening for real between the two! We can't wait for either of them to make it official!
On the work front, Athiya will be next seen opposite Nawazuddin Siddiqui in Motichoor Chaknachoor. Rahul is currently in West Indies taking part in the Test match series from August 30 to September 4.
