Diffusing all rumours about his relationship, finally, Sanam Teri Kasam fame Harshvardhan Rane confirmed his relationship with Mohabbatein fame Kim Sharma. Letting the cat out of the bag recently, Harshvardhan told a leading newspaper about dating the actress, in an interview, and gushed about how supportive she has been of him.
Talking about his love life in an interview with HT, Harshvardhan tried to give a vague image of his personal life before he finally opened up. Calling himself an open person and a private person in the same breath, the actor quipped, “I will say I am a very open person. There’s nothing to hide, I have never been a person to hide anything. Of course I am in a relationship, but it’s a personal space. I am a private person. And as far as the other person is concerned, I have to respect them. Barring that, where I go, whether it’s the jungles and stuff, it’s out there. I ran away from my home at a young age, have worked in a cyber café and STD booth, I don’t have anything to hide.”
The two were rumoured to be dating ever since their love took to Mumbai streets and the duo was spotted together on numerous occasions. Kim had recently posted a cute picture with him on Instagram on his birthday and referred to him as ‘baby’. However, both had remained tight-lipped about their relationship status, until now.
“There’s nothing to deny obviously, we are seen everywhere. We haven’t kept anything hidden till now. Since this is not work-related, I don’t know how to talk about it much, or what to discuss about it” said the actor, finally giving in.
Harshvardhan’s Paltan failed to rake much appreciation at the Box Office but managed to win over the appreciation of his girlfriend Kim who loved the film. In the interview, Harshvardhan shared that Kim had seen Paltan at a screening, before it released and though he realises that the element of bias is inevitable, he gushed about how supportive Kim had been of him and added, “I am sure she’s very kind to me as there will be a little bias. But when she genuinely tells me that she liked my effort and earnestness, it makes me happy.”
The actor said that he was also grateful to John Abraham who had come to support him. “I am grateful to him for coming. For an actor who doesn’t have a [film] family background, for him, such people, who have worked so much in this industry, coming gives you a moral boost. John sir nikalke bole ‘Harsh you did a fantastic job’,” he recalls.
