While every girl was silently hoping that this tall, dark and handsome actor should be single, it was when paparazzi spotted him on a lunch date with a television anchor-cum-host, Harleen Sethi, that had caught everybody’s attention. Hardly had their relationship began to pace up, when rumours of their breakups started emerging and it was finally confirmed by the duo indirectly. Immediately after his breakup, Vicky was linked-up with many actresses of the B-town, namely, Katrina Kaif, Huma Qureshi and Bhumi Pednekar.
And there’s yet another addition to the list! Vicky Kaushal is now rumoured to have developed an extremely close bond with Beyond The Clouds actress and a known face in the South Indian film industry, Malavika Mohanan. Yes, a source had shared with online portal, Pinkvilla, “Vicky, Sunny, Malavika and her brother have known each other since they children and enjoy a camaraderie and bond together. But Vicky and Malavika apparently, have become extremely close during this. Sunny and Malavika are also good friends. In Mumbai, no matter how busy he is, he will make it a point to drop in for lunch or dinner at Malavika’s home where she stays with her parents and brother. Now it seems that their relationship is becoming stronger and developing into something more intimate.”
Prior to this new rumour, Vicky Kaushal and Katrina Kaif were rumoured to have developed feelings for one another. As per another Pinkvilla report that had come sometime back, a big revelation about Vicky and Katrina’s alleged relationship was made by Neha Dhupia. Recently seen in the second season of BFFs With Vogue, Pinkvilla had spoken to the Neha about some behind-the-scenes secrets. When the online portal had asked Neha to name a person who throws the least tantrums on the sets, she had named ‘Katrina Kaif’. During the blink segment when one just needs to blink for the answer, Neha was asked if Vicky Kaushal and Katrina Kaif are dating, Neha blinked twice which meant that the duo isn’t. While we solely believe Neha, but as they say, there are no rumours without a reason, right? (*wink wink*) (Must Read: Athiya Shetty Is In Love With Indian Cricketer, KL Rahul? Details Inside)
Let us now take you on a flashback mode when all was well between Vicky Kaushal and Harleen Sethi. In a candid confession on Karan’s Johar’s, Koffee With Karan season 6, Karan Johar had asked Vicky if he is a ‘good boy’ or a ‘ladies’ man and also if he is in a relationship. Revealing the same, Vicky had simply nodded and indicated that he is in a relationship. When KJo had further asked Vicky to share more details about it and whether his relationship is a serious one, the Raazi star’s one-liner crisp reply had said it all! He was quoted as saying, “Let's see what happens. It's new.”
In an interview with MensXP, Harleen Sethi (Vicky Kaushal’s ex-muse) too, had dropped every possible hint about her relationship with Vicky and had stated, “We share a good bond, there is a kind of comfort level we have that is wonderful.” In yet another interview with SpotboyE, she had shared, “I just want to say that we share a very good comfort level. And we are getting to know each other. Par usse aage kuch nahi bolna chahungi main.” Sadly, their relationship didn’t stand the test of time.
In an interaction a few months back, Vicky Kaushal had shared that he had turned into a poet post his breakup once. The actor had shared interesting details on his life, love and breakups. Although Vicky didn’t name anyone, but sharing his own story, he indicated that everyone has their own way of dealing up with breakups. He had shared, “I think it is the only time when I turned into a poet. Every break-up story is great, you start hearing sad songs. Chalo ek baar fir se hum ajnabeei banjaye..” (Also Read: Rajeev Sen Was Once Rumoured To Be Dating A Famous Bollywood Actress's Sister Before Charu Asopa)
