While rumour mills work overtime regarding Shraddha Kapoor’s alleged relationship with Aditya Roy Kapur — something that has left her “angry” — the actor would rather focus on her upcoming film and her newfound camaraderie with Shahid Kapoor. In an interaction, here, she talks about her equation with Shahid, and says that she has no time for love.
How was it working with Shahid in your next?
It was great. Shahid loves me a lot. I know he’s got my back, and he’s quite protective of me. He’s constantly looking out for me. For that matter, even Vishal (Bhardwaj, filmmaker) sir is. So much love and comfort made it a lovely environment to work in. I was surrounded by good people.
There has been speculation about you dating Aditya Roy Kapur. But you insist you’re single.
I’m happy being single. Because this way I can focus on what I love doing the most, which is facing the camera. And frankly, I’m constantly working, whether it’s shooting or promoting my films; I’m hardly at home. Every single day is maddening, and, I love it this way.
What was your reaction to the rumours about Aditya gifting you a diamond ring?
This rumour was pushed to a different level [this time]. I’ve been very patient all this while, but this one has angered me a lot. How can people just assume something like this? Aditya and I are good friends, and no, I’ve not discussed this issue with him.
