Adding to the list from the millennial group are Sara Ali Khan, Kartik Aaryan and Ananya Panday. Kartik Aaryan and Sara Ali Khan? Kartik Aaryan and Ananya Panday? Kartik Aaryan and Sara Ali Khan and Ananya Panday? After this "Oh God! One more remix?", seems like everything just "Stop(ped) Making Sense!" Sara, Kartik and Ananya became the latest gossip that's doing rounds in B-town and our Koffee table.
On Koffee With Karan season 6, after Sara Ali Khan confessed her ‘crush’ on Kartik Aaryan, Ananya Panday also admitted that she finds the Pyaar Ka Punchnama fame ‘damn cute’. Sara and Ananya both expressed their wish to go on a date with him, but the latter’s wish had a twist. When the host of the show, Karan Johar reminded her that Sara also has a ‘crush’ on Kartik and wanted to have coffee with him, Ananya replied, "Yeah, so I want to go on that date where Sara and him are going."
Ananya Panday’s wish got fulfilled on February 28, 2019, as she finally scored a date with Kartik Aaryan and Sara Ali Khan! No, it wasn’t a ‘coffee date’ but the girls came together to root for their ‘cute crush’, Kartik’s film, Luka Chuppi. For the special screening of Luka Chuppi, Sara looked gorgeous in a denim jumpsuit and wore long round earrings to complement her outfit. Ananya kept it simple with a LBD and complemented it with white coloured casual shoes. Sara and Ananya were all smiles for the cameras as they posed together.
The screening also had Kriti Sanon and Kartik Aaryan’s parents in attendance and they seemed extremely proud of their children. Here are the pictures:
When Kartik Aaryan appeared on Koffee With Karan season 6 with his Luka Chuppi co-star, Kriti Sanon, Karan Johar asked him, "An exciting thing that happened Kartik is Sara Ali Khan came on my couch and said that she wanted to date you. What is the follow-up on that? What's the status? Are you interested in Sara Ali Khan?", Kriti interrupted, "Have you sent her your address?"

To which, Kartik sat there and blushingly replied, “So, what I'm doing is, sir, I'm just trying to, you know, earn more and more money right now. Saif (Ali Khan) sir said, 'Does he have the money?' So, I'm just..." Karan probed, “And, you clearly don't have the money that can match the Prince of Pataudi.” Kartik answered, “I don't know. She is a princess. So, you know, to ask her out on a date, you know, I would require a certain bank balance.”
So, when Karan Johar further prodded Kartik, “So, that's why you asked Ananya Panday out on a date and not Sara Ali Khan?”, to which he said, “I never asked her out.” Karan further elaborated, “You went for dinner with Ananya Panday but you kind of annulled Sara's declaration of romance on my couch. You went out to see a movie with Shraddha (Kapoor), you went out for dinner with Ananya and you're also messaging Sara. So, is there anyone you're really…” Kartik reverted, “I'm not messaging Sara.”
Karan again raised the topic of Kartik and Sara’s ‘romance’ when the Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety actor shared, “People should be open about their relationships”. To which, Karan asked him, “Are you open about yours. I really want to know. So sweetly she (Sara) came on the couch and said this.” Kartik replied, “Sir, I'm trying to earn money.” Karan probed him, “Just for her?” To which, Kartik said, “Just for her. The moment my bank balance is there, I'll ask her out." Karan asked him again if he is dating anyone, “But, you have already asked Ananya out. So, you do not seriously want to date any of them? You're not dating anyone?”, Kartik denied and said, “I haven't asked Ananya out. I'm not dating anyone.”
During a recent Twitter interaction, there happened a new twist on the Kartik-Sara-Ananya saga, when a user asked Kartik which 'newbie' among Sara Ali Khan and Ananya Panday was his favourite. The Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety star left a somewhat cryptic reply, "Jinka main fav hoon (whoever considers me their favourite)."
