Is Bollywood actor Hrithik Roshan dating Saba Azad? It's not yet confirmed, yes, but numerous photos of their outings, dinner dates, and their comments on each other's posts do add fire to the raging rumors. A recent photo of the couple is doing the rounds and it almost seems they are on the verge of making it official. But, who is Azad? Let's explore!
The recent photograph shows the duo leaving Mumbai airport. It was snapped earlier on Tuesday. Roshan is seen in a white T-shirt, jeans, a cap, dark sunglasses, and his face mask, while Azad opted for a sporty look as she was dressed in a laid-back grey joggers, grey crop top and a pair of white sneakers. They held hands for the paparazzi to see!
In February, Azad (32) was spotted at the Roshans' Sunday lunch. After the meet, Roshan's uncle, music composer Rajesh Roshan posted a smiling picture featuring Roshan's mother Pinkie, other family members, his two sons — Hrehaan and Hridaan — along with Azad. "Happiness is always around.. especially on a Sunday, specifically at lunch time (sic)," he wrote. Meanwhile, Azad commented, "Bestest Sunday."
