It will be interesting to see how the cricketer reacts to his alleged beau's post.

While social media is excited, there has been no public confirmation or denial of any possible relationship status by either Athiya or Rahul. It is said that the two met through common pals earlier this year and hit it off well.

Athiya Shetty and KL Rahul's social media banter during the lockdown is also providing ample fodder to Bollywood's gossip mills. The actor posted a series of snapshots in an oversized white shirt while on a video call with her bestie.

She captioned it, "Party of two with @sashajairam (sic)." The cricketer appeared to be more interested in what she was wearing. He quickly commented, "Nice shirt (sic)," with a shush emoji.

Recently, dad Suniel Shetty reacted to rumours of daughter Athiya dating Rahul. He told IANS, "I am not having the relationship, and you (media) will have to ask Athiya about it. If it's true then you (media) come and tell me, and we will talk about it. If you don't know, how can you ask me?"

Talking about Athiya Shetty, she made her debut in Bollywood with Salman Khan's film, Hero (2015). She was later seen in Arjun Kapoor's Mubarakan (2017). The actress made her last on-screen appearance opposite Nawazuddin Siddiqui in Motichoor Chaknachoor. Well, let's wait to see if Athiya and Rahul will make this relationship official!
