Bollywood actor Kartik Aaryan, who is basking in the success of his movie ‘Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2’, recently opened up about the rumours of him dating Sara Ali Khan, which some people believe was a promotional stunt for their film ‘Love Aaj Kal 2′

“No, no. There was nothing promotional there. How do I explain this? No dear, I mean, we are humans as well. Not everything is promotional. This is all that I will say on this topic,” the actor said in an interview with Navbharat Times.

‘Love Aaj Kal 2’ was the first time that the two shared the screen space in a movie. They were spotted hanging out several times outside the sets, sparking dating rumours. The two allegedly broke up after dating for a while and even unfollowed each other on Instagram later. 

Sara had later told Pinkvilla that she was not dating Kartik.

“I am dating him in the film. That’s all that matters. Please come and watch us ‘dating’ for 2.5 hours on Valentine’s Day,” she had told the outlet in 2020.

Earlier this month, the two were spotted chatting at the GQ 30 Most Influential Young Indians event that was held in Mumbai. Soon, their excited fans took to social media to say that they hope they are ‘back together’.

“After 2 years we seen this real and official picture of sartik,” one person wrote. 

Another fan commented, “Hope they are back together after this.”

Meanwhile, ‘Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2‘ managed to collect a whopping Rs 14.11 crore on its opening day.

“Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 brings joy, gives hope, boosts morale, revives business… Silences naysayers, who wrote obituaries of Bollywood after a string of flops… Fantastic Day 1, despite low ticket pricing… Emerges Kartik Aaryan’s biggest opener… Fri 14.11 cr.
