Mumbai, October 13 (CINEWS): Sooraj Pancholi and Athiya Shetty made their Bollywood debut with Nikhil Advani’s Hero in September this year. Way before the film hit the screens, right from the time it was revealed that Sooraj and Athiya were to be seen together in Hero, the grapevine was abuzz with tales of the two seeing each other.
Irrespective of the fact that none of the two – or Salman Khan, godfather to the two – actually said anything about Sooraj and Athiya being a couple, wagging tongues continued to concoct stories without a moment’s rest.
Now that Sooraj and Athiya’s on-screen chemistry in Hero has been praised and their off-screen chemistry being the subject of we-know-you’re-dating-each-other looks, Pancholi has spoken up about the relation the two share.
In an interview to Mumbai Mirror, when Sooraj was quizzed about his relationship with Athiya, he said, “We were never dating. In fact, a lot of people wanted to know why we were not. I don’t think we will ever date because we don’t have that kind of feelings for each other. But we are good friends and discuss the offers that we are getting.”
And no, that’s not all. Seems like the audience won’t be seeing Sooraj and Athiya on screen too, for some time to come. When asked if the couple will return to the big screen anytime soon, Sooraj said, “Even the audience needs a break from us!”
