Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput is currently in the news not for a new project that he has signed but for his *drumroll* relationship status! According to reports, the Kedarnath actor is dating the Mere Dad Ki Maruti actress Rhea Chakraborty.
Recently, both Rhea and Sushant took to their respective Instagram accounts and shared their pictures with a local kid in Ladakh. Rhea wrote, "Never judge a human (especially a human baby) by his/her sitting posture. #casualconversations with a new friend #rheality #incredibleindia 🌈🦋🙏"
Sushant, on the other hand, wrote, "An ounce of innocence, a pinch of laughter. #ladakh"
A source close to the actor revealed, "Sushant is currently seeing Rhea Chakraborty. They have known each other for a while and they hit it off really well in the last few weeks. In fact, things moved from one thing to the other quite quickly and now, they are already dating each other."
The source further said, "Rhea and Sushant have been spending a lot of quality time nowadays. They are still calling each other 'good friends' but the reality is that they are already seeing each other. When Sushant is not in town and chilling at his Lonavala house, Rhea also accompanies him sometimes. They are keeping their relationship hush-hush for now before taking it to the next level."
Sushant has allegedly dated a few B-town actresses in the past and here they are:
Sara Ali Khan and Sushant got along well while shooting for Kedarnath, Sara's debut film. They were often spotted hanging out off the set too. However, as per reports, "They did get really close during the promotions of the movie and had been together for a while. But that wasn't a relationship that would have lasted too long. They eventually parted ways amicably."
Kriti and Sushant were linked-up while they were working on Raabta. Reportedly, Sushant had gone to Delhi to celebrate Kriti's birthday with her parents. Grapevine was abuzz when the rumoured lovebirds celebrated the New Year together in London. Despite countless speculations, the two never admitted to dating each other. They always rubbished the rumours saying that they were just 'good friends'.
About three months ago, in an interview with a daily, Kriti revealed that she was single, "You can't plan a relationship. You connect with people or you don't. I'm single, honestly."
Sushant and Ankita Lokhande were the it couple in the telly world. The Pavitra Rishta stars dated for almost seven years before calling it quits. They parted way in 2016. In fact, they never spoke about each other in public and even went to the extent of avoiding one another at TV show parties and award functions. As soon as his Bollywood career kickstarted, Sushant's relationship with Ankita began to see its downfall.
Let's see if Sushant and Rhea will make this one official. On the work front, Sushant Singh Rajput was last seen in Abhishek Chaubey's dacoit drama Sonchiriya. The movie received rave reviews from the critics and was lauded by the audiences too.
