Akanksha Puri and Mika Singh’s love lives often become the talk of the town as the two are in limelight for their dating rumours with one person or the other. Earlier, Akanksha was dating Bigg Boss 13 contestant, Paras Chhabra and their breakup had hit the headlines on a daily basis as the two had made some controversial statements about each other. On the other hand, Mika was rumoured to be dating TV actress, Chahatt Khanna.
While Mika and Chahatt had cleared their stance and had announced that they were only working on a project together, later, rumour mills had started churning out the reports that Mika is dating Paras Chhabra’s ex, Akanksha Puri. On August 18, 2020, Akanksha had taken to her Instagram handle and had posted a cosy picture with Mika. In the picture, we could see the two celebrities sitting in a room and Akanksha could be seen in Mika's arms. Akanksha had tagged Mika in the photo and had written '#goodnight" followed by a purple-coloured heart emoticon. Mika had also reposted the same picture on his Instagram handle with a heart and smile emoticon atop, leading to their dating rumours.
Now, taking to her IG handle on February 2, 2021, Akanksha shared a video, where she and Mika can be seen sitting in a puja together, joining hands and posing for the camera. While Mika opted for a white shirt and blue jeans, Akanksha wore a black and red suit, with her head covered with a dupatta. The video created a stir amongst their fans as one look at it made everyone wonder if the two have exchanged the rings or are rokafied. Soon, Akanksha’s fans started congratulating her, considering it is her engagement video. Well, Akanksha’s caption too had given the vibes of their roka or engagement as she wrote, “Seeking blessings @mikasingh #yearsoftogetherness” followed by red heart emoticon.
In a conversation with ETimes, Akanksha Puri cleared all the rumours and stated that it was just a paath at Mika’s house and she had attended it. She said, “So this was a paath (pooja) that he (Mika Singh) kept at his residence, it’s done for positivity and good luck for future. I just went there to seek blessings but looks like people are assuming something else! And coincidentally this was on April fool’s day so people thought it’s some prank but these are genuine pictures and videos from his house!! Mika and I know each other for more than 12 years now, he is more like a family, he has always been there for me and we share a very strong bond!! But definitely, we are not engaged nor we have any such plans!!”
Akanksha also said that there is nothing between her and Mika and nothing will happen. She added, “I know, our fans love to see us together but sorry it’s not happening.” She also talked about Mika’s reaction to her fans' reaction and comments and said, “Initially, we both were laughing at these comments but now fans have started sending gifts, flowers and cakes and I feel it’s better I clear this thing out. I know, our fans love to see us together but sorry it’s not happening!! It’s not from any song shoot, not any prank, it’s just our pictures and videos from yesterday's 'paath'."
On one side, there are tons of stories about something brewing between Mika and Akanksha on the internet. On the other side, according to SpotboyE, it's just a trick played by the makers to set the stage before announcing their collaboration for work. We have already seen Mika Singh posting cosy pictures with television actress, Chahatt Khanna before the release of their music video. One of the most viral pictures of Chahatt and Mika were the ones, which were shared by Chahatt on her Instagram handle. In those pictures, we could see Chahatt and Mika twinning in black ensembles. Along with it, Chahatt had written, "Let's be someone's quarantine, Glad we found each other in this lockdown #quarantinelove @mikasingh", followed by a heart emoticon.
Do you think it was just a paath or are Mika and Akanksha really engaged?
