Actor Harshvardhan Kapoor and his relationship status seem to be the hottest talk of the town. Actor Anil Kapoor’s son was recently linked with Saif Ali Khan’s daughter Sara Ali Khan, however, neither of the two have confirmed anything. Harshvardhan was apparently uncomfortable being clicked outside Sara’s house. But here’s a fresh rumour, this time linking Harsh with the Kapoor & Sons actor Elena Fernandes. The two were spotted cosying up in London.

According to sources, Goan-South American model-actor Elena and the Mirzya actor went out for a dinner date. Harsh was there to apparently visit his father, who is shooting for his film, Mubarakan, in London, and took out time to catch up with Elena. Ever since, rumour mills have been abuzz that the two might be dating.

Actors Elena Fernandes and Harshvardhan Kapoor clicked in London.

When we contacted Elena, she rubbished the rumours, saying, “No, I am not dating Harsh. I don’t see him in that way whatsoever. For me, I see him as just my friend. [Also] Whenever two celebrities are seen together, people like to cook up stories and wonder if they are dating or not. May be it’s entertaining for the public. But Harsh and I, are strictly platonic friends... We both are very ambitious people with our own set of goals.”

Elena, who has known Harsh for almost a year now, calls him one of her closest friends in the industry. “He’s a very sweet and genuine guy, which I think many people don’t get the chance to see. They just see this ‘Kapoor’. We’ve had dinners several times and we hang out a lot. It’s great having another person from the industry that you can talk to about stuff.”

Talking about their meeting in London, Elena says, it was just two friends catching up and nothing more. “London is home, it’s where my family is and where I grew up. I’m always going back and forth between London and Mumbai. When I arrived in London, I knew Harsh was already there and he also know I was coming. So we just caught up like good friends do. We went shopping; we had some food, dinner, we were just hanging out.”

Recalling the time when she found a good friend in Harsh, Elena shares, “It was a year ago, when he reached out to me and we just clicked! We attended the same events in Mumbai and there were a few pictures from some award functions that were spoken about. We both are in the same industry, so we often offer each other advice on our film career in Bollywood, otherwise as well.”

So what’s Elena’s current relationship status? “Well, I am seeing someone but we keep the relationship very private. Though he himself is not from the [Bollywood] industry, his family is connected to the industry,” she reveals.
