The Delhi Belly actor spoke to India Today and recalled reading recent headlines about his relationship status and feeling ‘weirded out’. He said, “There were pictures of us from Ira’s wedding also that had come out which I thought were kind of official or direct and better like you can see our faces. Then last week, she posted like the silhouette picture and everyone’s like ‘They are official’, but what about the one without, where you can see your faces? That didn't count? I was surprised that the headlines came from this and not from that.”
