Aditya says Shraddha is his ‘dear friend’ not true love

The ‘Aashiqui 2’ actor Aditya Roy Kapoor denies dating Shraddha Kapoor. The couple has been reportedly dating for few years but never disclosed their liking for one another.  They were spotted in various occasions together.

Aditya still believes that he will find true love, “I have been in a relationship and which I thought was love but it was not. I am still discovering love. Hopefully, I will be meeting the right person one day. But I am not looking for it actively. If it has to happen, it will,” Aditya said.

When asked about Shraddha, Aditya said, “She is a very dear friend and that’s it. The media has written a lot about us and I believe that is part and parcel of being an actor.”

Aditya says media focuses more on his personal life than his career.  “I don’t get affected by all these stories. My mood doesn’t depend on what I read. What matters to me is how my family and close friends feel.”

Aditya Roy Kapoor says he had to read up a lot to prepare for his role in the movie.

“The zone which I have entered in the film is completely alien to me. I have never been to Lucknow and I can’t cook. The best I can do is make coffee, scrambled eggs and Maggi! I completely went with his direction. My father is an excellent cook so I took a few chopping lessons from him which really came handy during the shoots.”

Aditya Roy Kapoor will be next seen in ‘Dawaat-E-Ishq with Parineeti Chopra.

“As an actor I feel one should use his look to trick people. My director wanted me to adapt this look as he felt the audience needed to see a new character on screen.”
