He has hinted that he has proposed to her and is awaiting her response.
"For all asking... I really like and am extremely fond of @sonalchauhan7. While we're very close friends, we're not in a relationship," tweeted Neil. "She's taking her time to decide and I respect that. Nothing more to say beyond that. Everything else is just speculation," he added.
The actress, who made her Bollywood debut with "Jannat", is reportedly miffed with reports of a serious relationship with Neil. The duo enjoyed a 45-day shooting schedule together for "3G" in Fiji.
