A source had suggested that Sidhartha recently flew Anushka to Heathrow airport (London) in his private aircraft (an Airbus 320). Sidhartha Mallya has denied the suggestion calling it "complete madness" on Twitter.

A source close to Junior Mallya had told HT Cafe: “Yes, it’s true that the two flew to Heathrow and one other destination. Something’s definitely cooking. It was a small vacation. Anushka has been busy shooting and she wanted a break. They shahre great chemistry and seem to enjoy each other’s company.”

Sidhartha’s spokesperson had issued a denial even at the time of the publication of the story saying, “This is completely untrue. He didn’t fly in a private jet at all. He travelled in a commercial airline. So inviting someone else aboard is out of the question. And Sid doesn’t know Anushka. The assumption that these rumours are arriving at is completely baseless.”
