Ever got a knock at 12 am on your birthday with the people you love, singing ‘Happy Birthday To You’, with your hands on your mouth in surprise? Birthdays are all about wishes from the people because of whom you celebrate birthdays, surprises from your ‘special someone’, being crazy with friends and living your ‘big day’ to the fullest! And as Housefull 4 actress, Kriti Kharbanda turned 31 on October 29, 2019, her ‘not so rumoured anymore’ special-someone, Pulkit Samrat left no stones unturned to make sure that this, was an unforgettable birthday of Kriti’s!

Apart from his carefree acting spree and good looks, Pulkit Samrat has never been away from the limelight, thanks to his bitter divorce and linkups with various A-listed Bollywood actresses. As reported by SpotboyE, Pulkit met his co-star-cum-‘rumoured’-ladylove, Kriti Kharbanda at Varun Sharma's birthday party (famously known as Choocha in Fukrey) and gelled like wildfire! Soon after, reports were rife that Kriti has even travelled to Chennai to surprise Pulkit on his birthday this year and have already shared screen space in two films (Veerey Ki Wedding and Pagalpanti).
With their love and rumours about them being in love uprooting with each passing day, Pulkit Samrat and Kriti Kharbanda further added ghee to the aag of their dating rumours as the former posted a heartfelt birthday wish for the latter, and she replied back with warm comments. Pulkit’s birthday wish for Kriti could be read as “Happy Birthday Pretty Kharbanda!! @kriti.kharbanda Here’s to many more crazy days, rickshaw rides, bowling face-offs, football matches and shooting stars!!” To this, Kriti posted two sets of replies, “Hahahaha! There’s a reason I say you’re the best! Thank u so much! Time to do the happy dance dressed as minions! Only you’ll get that! U forgot mono deal contests and crazy #shallowgoals!! Again only you know what I mean!” The second one being, “Thanks a ton handsomest!!! U da best!”
While that was just about the wish, Pulkit Samrat left no stones unturned to make his ‘rumoured’ girlfriend, Kriti Kharbanda’s birthday, a memorable day for her. As reported by the Mumbai Mirror, Pulkit took Kriti to a newly-opened plush seafood eatery as the actress loves it. A source shared with the daily, “It was only when her friends and cousins turned up that Kriti realised that Pulkit had planned the dinner as a surprise for her.” The report further stated that Kriti’s cousins had flown in from Bangalore for her birthday and to celebrate Bhai Dooj. Here are the pictures from Kriti’s surprise birthday party:
But the best part is the birthday gift that Pulkit Samrat bestowed to Kriti Kharbanda on her birthday! While our partners usually have a tendency to surprise us with expensive gifts, Pulkit stayed away from the obvious and according to the same Mumbai Mirror report, made a donation to an NGO on behalf of Kriti and on her name! How thoughtful is that! Post the dinner party, Pulkit dropped Kriti back home as she was about to take off for Delhi. A source shared with the portal, “After celebrating Bhai Dooj with her cousins, the festivities continued for her in Delhi where her parents are based.” (Must Read: Sara Ali Khan And Ex-BF, Veer Pahariya Danced Together Like Never At Star-Studded Diwali Parties?)
In yet another Mumbai Mirror report, Kriti Kharbanda had talked about a possible dating happening between her and Pulkit Samrat. She had shared that she feels great that people feel that the two are dating. The Raaz Reboot actress had also shared that she feels that she and Pulkit look great together. Neither denying nor accepting the rumours of them being in a relationship, Kriti had told the same daily that people should find out if they are indeed dating. She had also shared that she neither wants to say ‘yes’ or ‘no’ about it. Well, we guess the scale weighs heavier on the ‘yes’ part! (*wink*)
Pulkit Samrat, in an interview with a leading daily, had opened up about his linkup rumours with Kriti Kharbanda. He had shared, “Yami ke saath, Kriti ke saath... I don’t pay too much heed to these kinds of articles. They are part and parcel of the business. My affair is with one person — Varun Sharma. Nobody is writing about it — I’ve done two films with him! My focus is only on work. I would rather be written about for that.”
A March SpotboyE report had it that Kriti Kharbanda has moved into Pulkit Samrat’s building. A source had shared with the Mumbai Mirror, “Kriti and Pulkit would hang out a lot together during the 58-day schedule of the film in London. They live in the same residential complex. She was charmed by his small but thoughtful gestures." Another update by the same daily had it that Pulkit always sends chocolate and flowers for Kriti, in her makeup room before she reaches work. A source had shared, “They have been offered some more projects together too and are presently shooting for a song for Pagalpanti in Mumbai. Whenever they are shooting together, Pulkit always makes sure to send chocolates or flowers over to Kriti’s makeup room before she has turned up at work.” (Also Read: Hiten Tejwani And Gauri Pradhan's Debut Serial 'Kutumb' Completes 18 Years, Hiten Posts A Lovely Pic)
