Television actor Nandish Sandhu's PDA with Ankita Shorey in the midst of his divorce battle with Rashami Desai is raising eyebrows
Telly actor Nandish Sandhu may be in the throes of an unpleasant divorce, but his PDA with his current flame Ankita Shorey, a former beauty pageant winner and wannabe actress, has left the industry surprised as well as amused. The small screen folk have failed to fathom why he is blatantly exhibiting his love even though his divorce proceedings with actress Rashami Desai have just started.

Says a TV actor who spotted them at the movies in Malad recently, "They are expressive and uninhibited. Nandish and Ankita are often spotted at restaurants and multiplexes hand-in-hand. Even though his divorce has not come through, he is going too fast, too soon."
Adds the source, "Nandish seems unperturbed that it could go against him in his divorce hearing. Clearly, he has thrown caution to wind."
Earlier this year, Nandish had clarified that Ankita was not the reason for his split with Rashami as widely speculated. The telly couple claimed to have reconciled when they took part in the reality show, Nach Baliye 7 last year. However, Nandish and Rashami went their ways as soon as the show wrapped up.
In January, Ankita's presence at the launch of Nandish's box cricket league team had set tongues wagging afresh. It was clear that she was special to Nandish; she even referred to him as the Ranbir Kapoor of television.
Nandish preferred not to comment on the rumours.
>> A while ago, Nandish was linked to DJ Gouri from Delhi. He lived-in with actress Anuradha Uppal before he got married to Rashami (Read more).
>> In 2012, Ankita grabbed attention when she had a public scuffle with Neil Nitin Mukesh at Riteish Deshmukh’s brother Dheeraj Deshmukh and Vashu Bhagnani’s daughter Deepshikha’s wedding reception. It is alleged that Ankita was miffed, as he went back on his promise to introduce her to filmmakers at the event. Ankita burst into tears and rushed to the ladies room while Neil followed her there. Later, the two called it a misunderstanding.
