Ssharad Malhotra makes his first public appearance with girlfriend Pooja Bhist

Television actor Ssharad Malhotra has finally moved on in life, just like his ex-flame Divyanka Tripathi. Ssharad, who broke-up with the ‘Yeh Hai Mohabbatein’ actress last year has found love in model-turned-actress Pooja Bisht.

Days after announcing their relationship, Ssharad and Pooja recently made their first public appearance as a couple at an awards show. The lovebirds walked hand-in-hand on the red carpet at the Zee Gold Awards 2016, held on Thursday, June 9.

The duo appeared much in love as they looked into each other’s eyes and were all smiles as they made their way on the red carpet. Both of them wore colour coordinated outfits for the event. While Ssharad sported a black blazer with a casual tee and denims, Pooja was seen in a mesh-cut black gown. The couple also spoke to the media.

“Yes, we decided to announce our relationship officially today through this red carpet. Pooja is a very sweet girl and she understands me very well. Rest, this is not the best place to talk more about our relationship as it's a long story. But yes, we will surely speak about it at the right time”, Ssharad told reporters.

Pooja participated in the Miss Diva 2015 beauty pageant and was crowned Miss Congeniality. Ssharad and Pooja met through common friends about eight months and have been been dating each other since four months.

On the work front, Ssharad is winning hearts of the audience as Rishi on Zee TV show ‘Kasam’.

His former girlfriend Divyanka whom he dated for seven years, was attended the awards ceremony with her fiancé Vivek Dahiya. The duo is set to tie the knot on July 8 in Divyanka’s hometown Bhopal. The wedding will be a private affair and will be followed by a reception in Vivek's hometown Chandigarh on July 10.
