The two first met during a magazine shoot last year. And ever since they wrapped up the shoot for Vishal, the two have remained in touch.
A source says, “They had hit it off well at the photo shoot. However, their friendship grew from strength to strength during Vishal’s film. During the shoot, they spent a lot of time together, chatting and discussing things at length. So much so that they started using each other as a sounding board for their future projects. They also have a similar taste in food, friends and outlook in life.”
In fact, Anushka even makes it a point to visit Imran whenever she is in Bandra. Says Imran, “I found Anushka to be an extremely straightforward person. She is easy to work with and easy to be friends with.” To which, Anushka says, “He is a normal chilled-out guy. He does not talk about anyone or even talk down to anyone. He is very intelligent and has no hidden agenda.”
