The celebrities might be living a king-sized life but sometimes things are not as glamorous as it looks. From dealing with gossipmongers churning out relationship rumours to keeping marriage a hush-hush ceremony, celebrity status comes with a cost. And popular television actors, Harshad Chopda and Pranali Rathod’s love life has always been the talk of the town. The duo has etched a special place in the hearts of millions of people through their stint in the daily soap, Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai as ‘Akshara’ and ‘Dr Abhimanyu’.
Though their sizzling on-screen chemistry had many speculating about them having a real-life affair, Harshad and Pranali broke the hearts of their fans by blatantly denying the dating rumours on record. Earlier, it was reported by The Times Of India on May 28, 2022, that the alleged couple were dating and had also gone on several dates together.

On May 29, 2022, Pranali Rathod came live on her Instagram handle with her alleged beau, Harshad Chopda and spoke at length about how she laughed at the dating rumours. The actress slammed the reports claiming them of being involved in a romantic relationship. She friend-zoned Harshad and mentioned that he is her ‘best friend’. While Harshad was calmly standing beside her, he once interrupted the actress in between to say that it's a ‘good thing’ if people are speculating about them being in a relationship. However, Pranali continued and said:
“Mein clear kar dun, mein aur Harshad date nahi kar rahe. Hum log bahot ache dost hain. Hum log best friends jaise dost hain. Par agar aap aisi khabrein chapayenge ya aap aisi khabron ko viral karenge.. Humari dosti ko aise alag naam na diya jaaye. He is a very, very good friend of mine."
On May 28, 2022, a Times Of India report had quoted its source and had stated that Harshad and Pranali spend the maximum time with each other on the YRKKH sets. The report had also mentioned that the rumoured duo had gone on several romantic dates together. The source could be quoted as saying:
“They spend the maximum time with each other on the set. Their lunch is together, they arrive together and even pack up and leave together. From what we know, they have also gone on several dates.”

Harshad Chopra is hailed as the Shah Rukh Khan of the small screen. His relationships are equally the talk of the town along with his phenomenal work on television. In an old interview with ETimes, Harshad Chopda was questioned about his past relationships and the impact of those bonds on his life personally. Answering this, the actor had mentioned that he had been into many relationships and all his ex-girlfriends have made him a better person. He had explained:
"The link-up stories exceed the number of times I have genuinely been in relationships. But that's how the industry functions and I don't feel the need to justify myself. That's probably because I have been a part of romantic shows. All I can say is that I have had my share of relationships (which have been so few) and each one of them has made me a better person. They haven't left me bitter and have only added value to my life."
