Earlier, Sara, who’s also just one film old in the industry, had expressed her wish of dating Kartik, on Koffee With Karan 6. Even Kartik commented on the same and mentioned that he was waiting for Sara’s address. The two are even rumoured to be paired together in filmmaker Imtiaz Ali‘s next, which is expected to be a sequel to Love Aaj Kal. The first part of the film featured Sara’s father, Saif Ali Khan with Deepika Padukone.

Whether Sara and Kartik come together on-screen or not, is something that future will decide. Currently, if what these photos hint at is true, then we have got our lovely new pair in Bollywood. In fact, a report in DBPost also quotes a source saying, “Kartik and Ananya have developed a close bond now. They have been meeting out secretly over dinner in the past one week. The modus operandi followed by Kartik is to arrive in his car and wait till Ananya’s car arrives post which he follows her. Yesterday, the duo entered an upscale restaurant for dinner at around 10 pm together and partied the night away till the shutters were down. They left together in Ananya’s car close to 2 am”.
