Rumour has it that ‘Beintehaa’ fame Harshad Arora is dating his co-star from his latest show. Aparna Kumar, who plays Harshad’s on-screen mother on the TV show Mavayi Maling, is rumoured to be dating him in real-life. Although they play mother-son duo on-screen, they are reported to be seeing each other in real-life.
Revealing more about the special bond between Harshad and Aparna, a source close to the couple stated that, “Aparna and Harshad are always with each other — they come and leave together. On the set, too, Harshad waits for Aparna to finish her scenes and then they head to the vanity van, which they share. Everyone on the set is aware of their special friendship. They hang out even when they are not shooting”.
In an interview with Bombay Times, Aparna was asked to give her statement about her alleged relationship rumours with Harshad Arora. She said: “Harshad and I are extremely close, primarily because both of us are from Delhi. Secondly, for the first two months, all our scenes were with each other. The show required me to speak in chaste Hindi, which I am really bad at. My director was upset with me, and I would cry my heart out in front of Harshad.”
She further stated, “He helped me so much, there came a point when I would seek his approval after my scenes were shot. That’s how we bonded. We spend a lot of time together; both of us are foodies and that’s another thing we bond over. We are extremely close, but that’s about it.”
When asked about the future prospects of their alleged relationship she said “I can’t talk about the future. It may or may not happen”.
Harshad, on the other hand, has dismissed the speculation as mere rumours by saying, “Aparna is jovial and gets along with everyone. She is like a live-wire on the set. We have a lot of scenes together, we eat together and share the same vanity van. We bond over food, acting and films. I have dropped her home on a couple of occasions when it was raining heavily. I have also dropped other unit members, but no one talks about that. I am used to such rumours, as I have a history of being associated with my co-actors”.
Last year, Harshad was linked with his Dehleez co-star Tridha Choudhary. But when Tridha was asked to clear up the rumours, she had said, “Harshad is my best friend and he has been a constant support. We hang out with each other, but we are not dating. Not yet. I am only 22, I don’t think this is the time to think of marriage or dating guys. I am focussed on my work”.
Harshad, too, denied such rumours. The actor has said “In our line we are always linked up with our immediate co-star and people love when something is on between the main protagonists. Yes, we do have a lot of pictures but they are also with other co-stars. All actors are staying in the same resort, so there are some together and some individually”
Although they have denied the rumours of them dating, we’re sure that the fans of Harshad and Aparna are waiting with bated breath for them to confirm their relationship.
