Celebrities often get linked to every other person they meet. A few outings, a lunch, a movie is enough for people to judge and for media to start the stream of reports claiming the two to be dating. We probably still live in a world which believes in “Ek ladka ladki kabhi dost nahin hote” and thus end-up linking every guy and girl spending time together. Though sometimes these rumours are true and wrapped under the blanket of ‘good friends’ till the right time, other times, celebrities have to officially come up to disregard all the rumours doing rounds.

For the longest of time, there have been gossips about Jalebi actress, Rhea Chakraborty dating Chhichhore star, Sushant Singh Rajput. The rumours started brewing as the two often took trips together, went to the gym in the same car, and were spotted together. These were reasons enough for the gossip mongers to churn out some juiciest rumours. However, in a live chat session with ETimes, Rhea has quashed all the rumours claiming their relationship and called Sushant just good friend.
On April 12, 2020, in an Insta live chat with ETimes, Rhea Chakraborty admits that Sushant Singh Rajput is a very close friend of her and there is nothing more than that. She said, "Neither Sushant Singh Rajput nor I have ever admitted that, so it's not true. Sushant and I are really good friends. I've known him for eight years now. We were in YRF together and we had the same manager for a long period. Our friendship has evolved over the years. I love all my friends and I don't hide that. I am very public about my love for the people in my life, whether they are girls or boys. Whereas Sushant is a concern, he's one of the nicest and the coolest person I know. I don't know about him but to me, he's super cute and attractive. But I don't know what he thinks about me."
Further, when asked about one habit of Sushant that she finds annoying, she talked about Sushant being too intelligent and smart, expressing that sometimes his intelligence makes one rethink his/her own smartness. Rhea also talked about how she has no clue from where all the rumours of them dating are coming from as they are not even doing a film together.

On January 27, 2020, in an interview with the Hindustan Times, Rhea Chakraborty had opened up about her relationship status with Sushant Singh Rajput. She was quoted as saying, “We’ve been very good friends for many years. I am fond of working towards our shared goals, like starting our new NGO and travelling. If there is anything else between us or not, this isn’t something that I want to disclose yet.” Talking about starting an NGO with Sushant, Rhea had added further, “I’m opening a gym along with a friend. I’m also starting an NGO with Sushant and my brother to provide free education to needy children. As actors, we do have certain powers. I want to use them for the right cause.”
On January 10, 2020, Sushant Singh Rajput’s one Insta story had raised hope in the alleged couple’s fans. He had taken to his official Instagram handle to make his relationship with Rhea Chakraborty Insta-official. Sharing a picture of Rhea, Sushant had referred to her as ‘meri jalebi’ (a reference to Rhea’s last release, Jalebi). However, Sushant had deleted the post from his Instagram later.
