Harshad Chopda-Pranali Rathod to Fahmaan Khan-Sumbul Touqueer: Onscreen couples who were rumoured to be dating
Celebrities are often linked up with their co-actors and these TV stars are no exception.
Television stars devote maximum hours of their day to shooting for their daily soap for 5-6 days a week. As they spend maximum time on the set, the actors tend to get comfortable with their co-actors, which is translated on the screens in the form of their chemistry. Several fan clubs of the shows and the lead pair start shipping them on social media and also post edited videos of their scenes. The fans' love for their favourite duo is so intense at times that they wish for them to date in real life too, and thus, this leads to rumours of them dating each other in real life too. There have been many such couples who've been linked with each other, let's take a look:
Harshad Chopda - Pranali Rathod
Harshad Chopda and Pranali Rathod are seen in the longest-running television show, Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai as Abhimanyu and Akshara. They look amazing together and are tagged as #AbhRa. There have been many instances on Ravivaar With Star Parivaar where their behaviour towards each other led viewers to speculate if there's something brewing offscreen.
Fahmaan Khan - Sumbul Touqueer
Fahmaan Khan and Sumbul Touqueer were the lead couple of the show, Imlie and they became solid friends while working together on the show. However, reports about them dating each other kept cropping up after seeing their comfort level with each other and their chemistry. Both Sumbul and Fahmaan quashed this rumour in a sassy manner. She posted a clip of him from the show and captioned it, "Fahmaan Khan you are a firecracker. Kya perform kiya hai meri jaaannnn!!!! I love your paagalpan towards your craft. Proud of you my just friend." His response to this message was, "Aray wah just friend aaj tareef pe tareef. Thank you so much (sic)." The emphasis on 'just friend' laid all rumours to rest.
