Actor Akanksha Puri was once the talk-of-the-town when she had a relationship with Paras Chhabra, where the latter entered Bigg Boss 13. From having a breakup literally as Chhabra's stint was going on in the show to Puri making her statement on it, their relationship ended much sooner.
Ever since then, the actor hasn't been a part of any rumor brigade and has been busy with her work for a while. However, her recent closeness to singer Mika Singh got many eyeballs raised where they would not just be papped together oftenly but even make plans and meet more.
Infact, only recently, they were seen going into a gurudwara together and fans speculated that they are all set to be engaged. However, shutting down the rumor mills once and for all, Puri has clarified that nothing of such sort is happening.
In an interview with ETimes, Puri clarified saying, "So this was a paath (pooja) that he (Mika Singh) kept at his residence, it’s done for positivity and good luck for future !!I"
She added, "I just went there to seek blessings but looks like people are assuming something else!! And coincidentally this was on April fool’s day so people thought it’s some prank but these are genuine pictures and videos from his house !! Mika and I know each other for more than 12 years now, he is more like a family, he has always been there for me and we share a very strong bond !! But definitely, we are not engaged nor we have any such plans!!"
She also added, "Initially, we both were laughing at these comments but now fans have started sending gifts, flowers and cakes and I feel it’s better I clear this thing out. I know, our fans love to see us together but sorry it’s not happening!! It’s not from any song shoot, not any prank, it’s just our pictures and videos from yesterday's 'paath'."
Well, that clears things once and for all indeed.
