Pulkit Samrat opens up about his alleged affair with Yami Gautam


Reports were abuzz that Bollywood actor Pulkit Samrat is dating actress Yami Gautam. The two will be seen romancing each other in their upcoming film ‘Sanam Re’. The rumours became stronger, especially after Pulkit split with his wife Shweta Rohira and one of the reasons was cited as the actor’s growing closeness to the ‘Vicky Donor’ actress.

Pulkit opened up about his rumoured relationship with ‘Sanam Re’ co-star at the music launch of the film held at Arijit Singh’s musical night on Saturday, December 19.

Speaking to reporters at the event, the ‘Fukrey’ actor refuted the rumours of his link-up with Yami in her presence and said, “I am not dating anybody. I don’t know about Yami.”

When Yami was posed with the same question, she preferred to remain mum on the topic. She made a diplomatic response speaking about the film. “Sanam Re has taken two years to complete and it is a fabulous movie and has received great response till now. It doesn’t deserve to be overshadowed by such questions,” she said.

Pulkit who tied the knot with his long time girlfriend Shweta in a star-studded ceremony in Goa in November, 2014, said he believes in the institution of love. When quizzed about a possible reconciliation with his wife, Pulkit said, “We haven’t decided anything on it ourselves. How can we tell you.” He also said that he would love to show the film to his mentor Salman Khan.

‘Sanam Re’ has been directed by Divya Khosla Kumar, wife of T-Series honcho Bhushan Kumar. It is her second directorial venture after ‘Yaariyaan’ and is set to hit screens on February 12, 2016.
