The passionate liplock between the lead pair of Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania might have raised some curious eyebrows, but here’s the real story that speaks volumes about the equation Alia shares with the Dhawan lad!

Alia Bhatt and Varun Dhawan appeared on the film firmament with their sparkling presence thanks to Karan Johar’s candy floss college drama Student Of The Year. And now, the duo is all set to rock yet another KJO production with their irresistible spunk and a crackling chemistry. Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania looks promisingly different. The film has captured the imagination of movie buffs with catchy, melodious music and thoroughly entertaining trailers. But, at the heart of this film’s growing popularity is the dishy pair- Varun and Alia.

At the film’s trailer launch, Varun teased Alia saying“Alia’s skin is like butter!” Alia too took a moment to describes their relationship, “Varun and I share a love-hate relationship. We fight very often, all the time, in fact, people around us tell us to stop! It’s a lot like Humpty and Kavya ( their characters in HSKD). We fight so much because we actually love each other!” she stated. And the close vibes they share were most evident during the Mumbai metro promotional trip that Aia and Varun took recently, whereby his hobbling onscreen lady-love depended on Varun’s support and his ‘able assistance’ oh-so-completely during the journey!

The two may not be dating each other, but their love-hate relationship in real life, as indeed in their reel one, is fetching Alia and Varun the much needed attention. Producer Karan Johar must be really happy with that news!
