Now, a source close to Rahul has revealed to BollywoodLife that he is not dating any actors he has been linked up before. “He is not dating any of the actresses he has been linked with hitherto”, as quoted by the source.

Earlier, Rahul was linked to Bollywood actor Nidhi Agerwal but she dismissed the reports by calling him a good friend from Bangalore. Athiya, on the other hand, was rumoured to be dating international rapper and singer Drake after their social media exchanges.

On the professional front, Athiya, who made her debut with Hero in 2015, will be next seen opposite Nawazuddin Siddiqui in Motichoor Chaknachoor. Rahul is currently playing in the ongoing ICC World Cup in London.
