Television actors Mohit Raina and Mouni Roy grabbed eyeballs not only for their sizzling chemistry in Devon Ke Dev Mahadev but also for their real life bonding. Media and fans have always got the image that the duo is dating. The two are often spotted together and always have the sweetest things to say for each other. Their photos on social media with each other along with puzzling captions further trigger the rumour mills!
Neither denial nor confirmation ever came from either of the two about the relationship, until today! Yes, Mohit Raina has finally opened up about the rumours of their dating and unfortunately, these two lovelies are just ‘good friends’.
In a recent interview with Indian Express, the television actor broke the silence and cleared that the two are great friends and immensely respect each other. He further said that Mouni is the only close friend he has in the industry and they both share a lot in common which further binds them together.
“I have always maintained that my personal and professional life is completely apart. As for Mouni, it is only the assumptions of people that we are dating. I have a lot of friends but not all are from the industry and you can say that the only close celeb friend I have is her. So whenever we are spotted together or we post pictures of each other, everyone assumes that there’s something more but aisa kuch bhi nahi hai (it’s not like that). Mouni was a co-star who became a very close friend and continues to be so. We genuinely have a very strong friendship and utmost respect for each other. We are similar people with similar stories. Mouni and I, both are from non-filmy families and come from really small towns. She has her father’s blessing, who is no more and which is also the case with me. We also have been working hard and achieving on our own. There are a lot of factors that have brought us in a different place where we have immense mutual respect towards each other. As for me, I really have a lot of pride for what she is doing in her career and winning laurels for herself. Also, who wouldn’t want his name linked to a film actress, it always works in favour (laughs) “he told Indian Express.
All the Mohit fangirls can rejoice that the hottay is not taken for now! But if ever, they will make an intense and a doting couple! What say?
