Vicky Kaushal made his Bollywood debut as an assistant director for Gangs of Wasseypur. His first successful box-office hit was Masaan and in 2018, he firmly established himself as the ‘next big thing’ in the industry. With over five releases in one year and all five of them being massive hits, there was no looking back for this drool-worthy man! Again completing the circle of ‘fame, money and linkup’, Vicky was in a steady relationship with telly screen’s Harleen Sethi, but later broke up with her and was linked up with many A-listed actresses of the Tinseltown.
To name a few of Vicky Kaushal’s linkup rumours, Katrina Kaif, Huma Qureshi and Bhumi Pednekar get a prominent mention. While Vicky has time and again reacted to his linkup rumours, the actor recently shared in an interview, his parents’ hilarious reaction to his dating rumours. Recalling an incident, Vicky shared in an interview with Pinkvilla, “I woke up in the morning and there was one link-up story in the newspaper. My mom and dad were sitting at the dining table. They were waiting for me to pick up the newspaper and read it. The moment I opened the newspaper and turned to them, they started laughing and said, 'jis pace pe ja raha hai, humein toh bataa de.' I was like, 'I too don't know what is happening.’” Opening up about his linkup rumours with Katrina Kaif, the Bhoot actor shared, “Rumours about me and Katrina Kaif have been going on for months, and soon it will be some other beautiful lady."
Speaking about Vicky Kaushal’s linkup rumours, the actor was recently 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. A source had shared with Pinkvilla, “Vicky, Sunny, Malavika and her brother have known each other since they children and enjoy 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.” (Must Read: Salman Khan Cheering For His Ex, Katrina Kaif At IIFA 2019 Awards Has Gone Viral, Checkout The Video)
Prior to this new rumour, Vicky Kaushal and Katrina Kaif were rumoured to have developed feelings for one another. As per a report that had come sometime back, a big revelation about Vicky and Katrina’s alleged relationship was made by Neha Dhupia. Pinkvilla had spoken to Neha about some behind-the-scenes secrets of her show, BFFs With Vogue. When the online portal had asked the Lust Stories actress 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 wasn’t.
A while back, some other reports were filled with Vicky Kaushal’s growing fondness towards co-actress, Bhumi Pednekar. That was also speculated to be one of the reasons behind Vicky and Harleen’s breakup. Vicky is currently working on a horror film, Bhoot, which also has Bhumi Pednekar starring in an extended cameo. This was speculated to be a major reason as to how these two stars might have met each other and came close. Rumours then also had it that Harleen was extremely upset over their alleged split. Also, for the uninitiated, Bhumi and Vicky will also star in Karan Johar's multi-starrer, Takht.
In an interview with MensXP, Harleen Sethi had dropped every possible hint about her relationship with Vicky Kaushal. She 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.” (Also Read: Ridhi Dogra Gives A Warm Welcome To Estranged Husband, Raqesh Bapat As He Comes Back From Pune)
