“No, we are not dating,” he told us over a ­telephone ­conversation. And while Sonakshi could not be reached for a comment, her mother, Poonam Sinha, simply said, “I am the wrongest (sic) ­person to talk about newspaper reports.”
A friend of Arjun says that the actors’ friendship goes back a long way.
“They’re childhood friends and went to the same school. They live down the road from each other and have been friends for pretty much all their lives. After doing a film together recently, they naturally became better friends.” The two are also working on a film together.

Confirming reports that the two recently went to Istanbul for a ­holiday, the friend says, “They have ­plenty of ­common friends and it’s true that they were all together for a long ­holiday in Istanbul. But that does not mean that they’re in a ­relationship. Besides, their families know each other too, so it’s not ­unbelievable that the two share a very good equation with each other.”
In the past, too, the two have had their share of link-ups. While Arjun, 29, was last linked to his 2 States co-star Alia Bhatt, Sonakshi, 27, was rumoured to be dating her R... Rajkumar co-star Shahid Kapoor.
