Whispers of this actor’s friendship with his up and coming co-star have kept the gossip mills buzzing for the last few months. In fact, many attributed their growing closeness to the death of his long romantic innings with an industry girl, although the two have fiercely denied the link-up rumours. One could have believed that they are mere pals, who hit it off instantly when they met on set, but their antics suggest otherwise.

Shot in the dark: This rumoured Bollywood couple got cosy in vanity van

A source close to the actors says, “When they were shooting for a film, they couldn’t stop indulging in PDA, and talked like a much-in-love couple. They used to spend a lot of time in the actor’s vanity van and at times, locked themselves inside. When a unit member would be sent to call them for a shot, they would be seen lost in each other.”

The actor has got a new house for himself, and this pretty face has been helping set things up. “She is more or less staying with him — she is often spotted leaving his house early in the morning,” adds the source.
