Mumbai, Oct. 9 -- Just a while back, the grapevine was convinced that Arjun Kapoor was seeing his 2 States co-star Alia Bhatt. Sonakshi Sinha, too, in the past, has been linked with co-star Shahid Kapoor. Now, according to a recent report, Arjun and Sonakshi - coincidentally working on a film together - are "in love".
However, when we contacted Arjun, he rubbished the allegation. "No, we're not dating," he insisted over a telephone conversation with HT Cafe. Sonakshi, busy with a film shoot, could not be reached for a comment. Her mother, Poonam Sinha, refused to comment, saying, "I'm the wrongest person to talk about newspaper reports (sic)."
A friend of Arjun's tells us that Arjun and Sonakshi are childhood friends, and went to the same school. "They live down the road from each other, and have been friends pretty much all their lives," the friend says, adding that they did go on a holiday together. HT Cafe had reported at the time that Arjun was on a vacation in Istanbul.
"Yes, Sonakshi was also in Istanbul, since a whole bunch of friends had decided to go on a vacation together... But that does not mean that they're in a relationship. Besides, their families know each other, so it's not hard to imagine why they share a good equation."
