The rumoured couple often indulges in PDA on social media, leaving comments and hearts on each other’s posts. Recently, when Athiya shared a picture of herself, Rahul dropped black heart and angel emojis on the post. Athiya replied with an otter emoji and smiling face with three hearts. Their fans couldn’t contain their excitement.

They even rang in the New Year together in Thailand, with their friends. However, neither has commented on the link-up. Athiya’s father, actor Suniel Shetty has said that he is very pleased with her boyfriend. “We (he and wife Mana Shetty) love the kids and the kids they are dating. Absolutely love them and I think more than profession, being happy in life is very important today because that is the space I think that is missing. We were all happy, we grew up happy,” he had said.

It was fashion designer Vikram Phadnis who had started the rumours. He left a comment on one of Athiya’s posts, hinting at their relationship. “You seem to be v hyper and excited these days ??? Let’s go to KL ??? ..... Kuala Lumpur ????” Athiya replied, “@vikramphadnis TIME to block you!” Vikram then commented, “I will complain to the UMPIRE!! @athiyashettyand once your WICKET is gone... it’s back to the pavilion!!!” However, he later deleted the comment.
