When you are born with a silver spoon, it comes with lots of disadvantages as well. Being a star kid is never an easy job as right after your birth, you are exposed to media scrutiny and flashlights. The paps wait for you to step out of the hospital so that they can click you or get a glimpse of you and this goes on for the rest of your life. Well, we believe that the star kids that have now started reigning over Bollywood have become habitual of the limelight and the constant link-up reports don’t bother them now. It stands true for Pooja Bedi's daughter, Alaya Furniturewala as she is often spotted with her rumoured beau, Aaishvary Thackeray.

It was a few weeks before her Bollywood debut that the reports of Alaya dating the grandson of late Bal Thackeray, Aaishvary Thackeray, had emerged in the media. Alaya is not only rumoured to be dating Aaishvary but is also said to have a great bond with his mother, Smita Thackeray. On August 17, 2020, we had gotten a glimpse of Alaya’s bond with her could-be mother-in-law, Smita Thackeray as she had posted a collage of pictures on her IG handle. In the collage, one picture was with her son, Aaishvary Thackeray, one had a bouquet sent by Rahul Thackeray and a hugging picture with Alaya Furniturewalla. Revealing how she had spent her birthday with her close ones, Smita had captioned the post as “Wonderful evening with close ones to bring in my birthday @aaishvarythackeray @alaya.f @rhia1596 @rahul.thackeray@Aditi Thackeray.” On Alaya’s 22nd birthday, she had posted pictures from the bash and it had a beautiful black-and-white picture with her rumoured beau, Aaishvary.
Although, Alaya has denied her dating reports with alleged beau and grandson of late Bal Thackeray, Aaishvary, however, her recent spotting suggests something different. Yes, Alaya was spotted leaving a restaurant in Mumbai with her alleged boyfriend, Aaishvary and his mother, Smita. While Alaya opted for a little black dress with a white shirt over it, Aaishvary, on the other hand, was seen in an all-black avatar and his mom, Smita looked gorgeous in her all-grey look with an animal print scarf. Take a look:
In an interview with ETimes, Alaya Furniturewalla had reacted to the rumours of her relationship with Aaishvary Thackeray. The actress had refuted the speculations maintaining the ‘just friends’ stance. When Alaya was asked to comment on her dating rumours, she had retorted, “He is a very good friend. I know it is a cliche thing to say, but we are very good family friends. Our moms know each other, my grandad knows his mom, we have known each other for a very long time. It’s just now that the media notices a photo of us together and assumes that something is going on. We have been doing acting classes for a very long time, and also go to dance classes together; if the paparazzi had clicked us earlier, they would have a lot more pictures (laughs). That’s why we are bound to click together; I find him to be quite funny.” (Don't Miss: Alia Bhatt Is Lost In Love And Laughter With Her Beau, Ranbir Kapoor On The Sets Of An Ad Shoot)
When probed further to comment on how she feels as her dating speculations with Aaishvary Thackeray is her first link-up rumour in the media, Alaya Furniturewalla had said, “It’s not like I expect it. The paparazzi get photos so I know what’s going to happen with it. But I also make a joke out of it. Now, if I’m exiting a place, we have to exit together, and there are bunch of photographers who ask us to pose together and I politely refuse laughing over the fact that those pictures can land me in a lot of trouble later." Revealing if it gets embarrassing for her, Alaya had continued, “I just find him to be quite funny. Honestly, when I am being clicked, I take it as a big compliment. I am one-film-old, and these people are technically supporting me and pushing me out there, so, I just smile. I think it is fine; people take all these things too seriously. We went for acting classes together, someone clicked us and they want to make stories now, good for them!” (Must Read: Rahul Vaidya Goes On A Vacation With His Girlfriend, Disha Parmar, Shares A Cute Picture With Her)
