We all have that one friend without whom we cannot imagine our life to be as cherishable as it is with them by our side. In a fast-paced world that we live in, our childhood BFFs are the ones, who keep us grounded and keep the insanity alive. No matter how less you talk with them or how the geographical distance divided you both, there can never be a replacement of your BFF in your life. Luckier are the girls, who have a guy best friend and vice-versa. Despite the most cliched line, ‘Ek ladka aur ladki kabhi dost nahi ho sakte’, only a guy/girl having a girl/guy as their best friend would understand how their bond is more special and beautiful than any romantic relationship. And who better than Janhvi Kapoor and her childhood bestie, Akshat Ranjan, to vouch for the same.

Though Sridevi and Boney Kapoor’s daughter, Janhvi Kapoor had made her debut in the film industry in 2018 with Dharma Production film, Dhadak, she came in the limelight years before her first release, courtesy her star family. Hailing from the famous Kapoor family, Janhvi and her sister, Khushi Kapoor used to often accompany their star parents on events and shows. And just the way the glamour world works, Jahnvi’s personal life too became a subject of interest for the gossip mongers and media.
Before the release of her debut film, Dhadak, the rumours of Janhvi Kapoor and Akshat Ranjan dating emerged in the media and their social media feeds added the fuel to the fire. But soon after the release of the film, the rumours faded away just to give rise to Janhvi’s close bond with her Dhadak co-star, Ishaan Khatter. Before we get into the details of the same, let us give you a quick update on Janhvi’s recent get-together with her once-rumoured beau, Akshat. In an array of Insta stories posted by Janhvi, one featured her rumoured ex and childhood bestie, Akshat giving her a piggyback ride. Twinning in white with Akshat, Janhvi wrote, “When the lifts are busy I have Akshat Rajan” atop the video.
Rumours of Janhvi Kapoor and Akshat Ranjan’s relationship came into limelight when on her birthday on March 6, 2018, Akshat had posted a beautiful picture of them where they were all decked up with skyscrapers in the background. He had captioned the picture as “happy birthday” followed with a heart emoji. To which the Ghost Stories star had replied with an “ily” comment which is an abbreviation of ‘I Love You’.

For the uninitiated, Akshat Ranjan is the son of a business giant, Abhijit Rajan (Chairman and Managing Director of Gammon India Limited). When Janhvi Kapoor had made her debut in Bollywood with Dhadak, to celebrate the success of her first film, her rumoured ‘boyfriend’ had customised a ‘D’-shaped flower bouquet and had presented it to his rumoured ‘girlfriend’, Janhvi. The starlet had posted an Instagram story on the same with the words, “Subtlety is not his thing” written atop of it.
In a chat show, Famously Filmfare, Janhvi Kapoor had addressed the rumours suggesting her romantic relationship with her childhood bestie, Akshat Ranjan. Revealing how Akshat is scared to be seen with her in public, Janhvi had stated, “The rumour mongers have also said that I am dating my childhood best friend called Akshat, who’s so scared to hang out with me now because he is too scared that we will be papped together. So that day, he came home for dad’s birthday and there were paps downstairs at Arjun bhaiyya‘s house, and he was hiding in a khopcha, put on a hoodie and all, and left. I was like, it’s okay.”
Janhvi Kapoor was later rumoured to be dating her Dhadak co-star, Ishaan Khatter and given the amazing chemistry the duo had in the film, their fans rooted for some probable ‘off-screen chemistry’ of these two too! Time and again in interviews have we seen these two fun co-stars, Janhvi and Ishaan pull each other’s leg and at the same, be all-praises for each other. But every time, Janhvi and Ishaan had brushed aside all rumours regarding their dating and still continue to chill with each other.
However, as per a 2019 Mumbai Mirror report, Ishaan Khatter’s frequent spotting at Janhvi Kapoor’s house was because of the Kapoor clan’s fondness for the rising star. Apparently, Janhvi’s father, Boney Kapoor too, is extremely fond of Ishaan and he is really made to feel welcome there. Janhvi’s half-sister, Anshula Kapoor, who is extremely protective about her, takes utmost pleasure in teasing the two ‘reel-life’ turned apparent ‘real-life’ lovers, Ishaan and Janhvi! If one was to make a statement about the entire Janhvi-Ishaan ‘lovey-dovey’ scenario, what looked like it, the Kapoor fam-jam’s heart does ‘dhadak’ for these two!
