It was in 2016 that Arjun Kapoor and Athiya Shetty grabbed headlines for their alleged affair. However, neither of them ever confessed on their rumored love affair and continued to deny it, kept insisting that they are just good friends and nothing more.
But, industry insiders always stated that there was definitely something brewing between the duo who were paired opposite each other in Mubarakan. However, since Malaika Arora’s re-entry in Arjun’s life, things started changing. As Malla started gaining acceptance in the Kapoor household, Arjun started avoiding Ms. Shetty. In fact, our source states that things ended on a bad note between Arjun and Athiya at the former’s residence. Eventually, they called it quits.
Now, in the present day scenario, Athiya continues staying good friends with Arjun’s sister Anshula but is not on talking terms with Arjun. A source close to the actress reveals that when they were dating, Athiya used to visit Arjun-Anshula’s Juhu residence on a daily basis. Plus, she used to hang out with Anshula on a regular basis.
But, things changed for the rumored ex-lovers post-break-up. While Athiya continues maintaining her friendship with Anshula, their hangouts have reduced considerably. Plus, she is no longer in contact with Arjun.
However, as they say, relationships in Bollywood are very uncertain, let’s hope Arjun and Athiya get back to being friends.
