While KL Rahul has been away from the limelight after the Koffee With Karan controversy broke open, his personal life has been the talk of the town. Several reports over the past few months have been suggesting that the Indian cricketer is in a relationship with a starlet. From Punjabi actress Sonam Bajwa to Sunil Shetty’s daughter Athiya Shetty, the sports star has been linked with quite a few names. However, his recent link-up has been the talk of the town.
Reports suggest that Rahul is dating Alia Bhatt’s best friend Akansha Ranjan Kapoor. It was recently revealed that Akansha introduced the cricketer to the Gully Boy star and her beau Ranbir Kapoor. Amidst these reports, the cricketer addressed his relationship status in an interview with Bombay Times and said that he had no idea about the reports being written about his relationship.
“Oh, all these things have been written about? I don’t really read the papers, so I don’t know what has been written about me. I have learnt to keep my personal life personal and not make it a thing to talk about. I am committed to cricket right now,” he said. Asked if he was single or not, he broke a lot of hearts by saying, “I don’t really know. When I figure that out, I will give you a call and tell you.”
