Is Sushant Singh Rajput taking the plunge with Rhea Chakraborty?
Sushant Singh Rajput and Rhea Chakraborty's growing proximity is surely keeping rumor mills busy. In this light, recent reports suggested that SSR is planning to take the plunge with the Sonali Cable actress, just months after dating her. However, a source close to her rubbished these rumors, saying, "Marriage isn't on the cards for now," as she "would like to take a little time."
As per an exclusive Pinkvilla report, Sushant and Rhea, who "enjoy each other's company", are giving time to their budding relationship. "They have just started seeing each other. They're now getting to know each other well. There's enough time before they decide to take the marital plunge," the source added. Besides, the duo is quite occupied with their professional commitments to think about nuptials.
Marriage may not be dominating their minds currently, but the actors, with their frequent dates and romantic getaways, are providing enough fuel to gossip mills. Like recently in June, they went to Ladakh, and though they cleverly didn't post any photos together, their individual Instagram updates gave away their well-concealed secret. Meanwhile, Sushant was recently quizzed about his relationship, and he somewhat dropped hints.
Without divulging much, Sushant had said, "Right now, it's not right to say," and that "People shouldn't start talking about things in a nascent stage as if they're very sure of it." The 33-year-old actor also mentioned that it isn't correct to comment on something that involves someone else. "If I was seeing somebody, I'd have to ask that somebody," he said.
When asked if he's dating someone in particular, Sushant quickly dodged the question, saying, "I'm seeing many". He later added, "Oh, you mean it as a metaphor? I'm not allowed to say." To note, this isn't the first time his love life is under scanner.
Ever since he called off his six-year-long relationship with actress Ankita Lokhande in 2016, Sushant has been linked with almost all of his co-stars. When he was shooting for Kedarnath, he was rumored to be dating Sara Ali Khan. Likewise, when he was filming Raabta, Kriti Sanon's name cropped up. Sushant however maintained a dignified silence despite being asked about these possible affairs.
Meanwhile, on the work front, Sushant is looking forward to the release of Chhichhore, a rom-com by Nitesh Tiwari. Also starring Shraddha Kapoor, Tahir Raj Bhasin, Varun Sharma, the movie revolves around seven friends, and will release on August 30. On the other hand, Rhea is busy working on Rumi Jaffrey's Chehre, along with Amitabh Bachchan and Emraan Hashmi, which will release in 2020.
