While they may stay quiet when questioned, the emerging lovebirds of Bollywood have no qualms about embracing their affection. From romantic outings and retreats to displaying affection on social media, these couples are openly expressing their love.
The Bollywood atmosphere seems to resonate with the spirit of “Khullam khulla pyaar karenge,” as several ‘rumoured’ couples are finding ways to publicly acknowledge their relationships. Though they might remain tight-lipped when questioned, Bollywood’s emerging lovebirds are embracing their affection without hesitation. From private dates and getaways to showcasing their love on social media, these couples are openly displaying their emotions. Let’s take a look:
Speculations about their relationship have been circulating since the previous year. Recent paparazzi sightings have seemingly added more weight to these rumors. In July, an insider shared with a media outlet, “Ibrahim and Palak have received approval from their respective parents to date.” Palak, the daughter of actor Shweta Tiwari, and Ibrahim, the son of actors Saif Ali Khan and Amrita Singh, attended filmmaker Anurag Kashyap’s daughter Aaliyanh’s engagement a couple of weeks ago. Prior to that, they were seen arriving separately for the screening of Satya Prem Ki Katha. What caught everyone’s attention was the fact that Ibrahim walked out of the theater wearing the same jacket that Palak had on.
Rumors of actor Bhumi Pednekar’s relationship with builder Yash Kataria started swirling after a video of them, seemingly kissing, outside Kiara Advani and Sidharth Malhotra’s wedding reception in Mumbai surfaced in February of this year. Last month, they were spotted on a dinner date and have also been seen together at the airport. Adding to the intrigue, Bhumi posted a birthday wish to Yash on August 17, referring to him as the “OG King.”
Siddhant Chaturvedi and Navya Naveli Nanda
Hints of a connection between actor Siddhant Chaturvedi and entrepreneur-podcaster Navya Naveli Nanda have been around since 2022, but their public appearances together have increased over the past few months. In June, the pair walked out of Mumbai airport side by side, both dressed in white. They have also been photographed on outings for movies and dinners around the city.
Aditya Roy Kapur and Ananya Panday
This actor-couple has neither confirmed nor denied their relationship, but their vacation photos from Europe in July leave little room for doubt. In one image that surfaced online, Aditya Roy Kapur is seen embracing Ananya Panday, and in another, they are engrossed in conversation at a restaurant in Spain. They were also spotted on a movie date in Mumbai.
Sonakshi Sinha and Zaheer Iqbal
Actors Sonakshi Sinha and Zaheer Iqbal, who shared the screen in Double XL (2022), are reportedly dating since 2019, although they have remained tight-lipped about it. However, their interactions on social media have given a nod to their romance. On Sonakshi Sinha’s 36th birthday in June, Zaheer Iqbal posted on Instagram: “May you always live the mermaid life. Always be happy. I love you.”
