Lots of people wrote to say that it could be yet another Bollywood and cricket union. Many simply wrote KL Rahul’s name. Just a few days back, KL Rahul’s name cropped up again, this time in connection with Alia Bhatt’s bestie Akansha Ranjan Kapoor. A picture had appeared online where the three -- Rahul with Akansha and Athiya -- can be seen posing together.

On being questioned about it, Rahul told Bombay Times in an interview, “Oh, all these things have been written about? I don’t really read the papers, so I don’t know what has been written about me. I have learnt to keep my personal life personal and not make it a thing to talk about. I am committed to cricket right now.”

He refused to confirm his relationship status and said, “I don’t really know. When I figure that out, I will give you a call and tell you.”
