The actor who’s expecting her first child with RJ Anmol in a few days talked to Times of India in her latest interview and addressed all the reports suggesting she and Shahid dated each other in the past. The 33-year-old actor said that Shahid was always in a relationship with someone else each time they worked together. “Not at all. Shahid was always in a relationship when I was his co-star. Yes, the audience always wished that we were a ‘real-life couple’ but that had only got to do with our tremendous onscreen popularity,” she said.
Amrita said that she and Shahid always operated as colleagues and did not even share a friendship. “The funny part is that Shahid and I have only been very good colleagues, we were not even friends who hung out with each other,” she was quoted as saying.
The actor though added that they both have got immense love and respect for each other which hasn’t gone anywhere. She said that she got to know how Shahid recently said on social media that he misses working with her and she found that really sweet. “Why Shahid and I were never cast together after Vivah is a million-dollar question and something to think about,” said Amrita.
