After making a huge impact with his role in Star Plus' Ishqbaaaz for almost three years, it has been a while since actor Leenesh Mattoo has appeared in a TV show except for a stint in Brahmarakshas 2. But that doesn't mean he has been entirely off the news brigade. In fact recently, the actor has been posting several pictures with actor Shivani Jha which led to a set of rumors that they are dating each other.
After Mattoo and Jha met on Brahmarakshas 2, they hit it off and have been together ever since. Now talking about it with ETimes TV, Mattoo said, "Shivani is an ambitious, independent, attractive and very understanding girl. She is also extremely loyal and patient - all the qualities that you want in a woman when you set out to be in a relationship. We both enjoy different kinds of cuisines and we keep exploring food at different places in Mumbai. I met her during Brahmarakshas 2 and we have been dating for around 10 months now."
Jha is currently seen in Bhagalakshmi and she went on to open up on the same as well as she said, "The first thing I liked about Leenesh was his punctuality. He always reported on time for the shooting of Brahmarakshas. I feel punctuality is very important in a man. Secondly, he is extremely caring, friendly and loving - again all qualities that I would look for in my partner. We work out regularly together so that we can gorge on good food on our cheat days. While Leenesh enjoys Mughlai cuisine, I enjoy Chinese. So, we are always finding out biryani places and interesting Chinese eateries in Mumbai."
When asked if they are ready to take their relationship to the next level, Mattoo said, "We haven't thought of marriage. We are happy enjoying each other's company and laughing together." Shivani also echoed a similar sentiment. She said, "It is not tough to be in a relationship if you are with the right guy. We haven't thought of marriage because we are busy trying to settle in our careers."
Now, Mattoo will be seen in the TV show, Tere Bin Jiya Jaye Na soon.
