Ameesha Patel Reacts To Dating Rumours With Pakistani Actor Imran Abbas: ‘That’s Silly’
Ever since actor Ameesha Patel posted a video with Pakistani actor Imran Abbas, rumors have been rife that they are a couple. The Kaho Naa… Pyaar Hai actress was shocked when she was informed about the dating rumors.
She said, “I read them too, and had a huge laugh about it. The whole thing is just crazy and full of silliness. I was meeting my buddy after so many years. So, it was just a catch up.”
Ameesha met Abbas in Bahrain at a recent event and they recorded a fun video for the song Dil Mein Dard Sa Jaga Hai from the 2002 film Kranti, which featured Patel and actor Bobby Deol. The video sparked the rumor. She shared, “He happens to love that song of mine. It’s his favourite song… We just did an impromptu thing, which was recorded by a friend. It came out so cute, so we posted it. It was not planned.”
She further added, “We have known each other for many years, since the time I studied with him at a university in the US. And I have stayed in touch with most of my friends in Pakistan, who just love India. Abbas belongs to the film industry there, and we have a lot more to talk about.”
She said that people should read into kinds of stuff too much. She concluded, “We met at the event and decided to catch up later, that’s when the video just happened organically. He happens to love that song of mine. It’s his favourite song… We just did an impromptu thing, which was recorded by a friend. It came out so cute, so we posted it. It was not planned.”
