Relationships between cricketers and Bollywood stars are nothing new. From the late MAK Pataudi and Sharmila Tagore to skipper Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma, there have been a number of such instances over the years. However, recently, a few series of tweets between India all-rounder Hardik Pandya and Bollywood actress Parineeti Chopra have made fans guessing if the two are actually headed in the same direction.

It all started with the 23-year-old Bollywood star posting a picture of a bicycle on her official twitter handle with a caption stating: “The perfect trip with the most amazing partner. Love is in the air!!!” While her fans complimented on how beautiful the picture was, Hardik Pandya quoted her tweet and stated: “Can I guess? I think this is a second Bollywood & Cricket link. Great click by the way.”

Naturally, it took Twitteratis by storm and got further fuelled by Parineeti Chopra’s reply to Hardik Pandya’s tweet where she stated: “Hahaha. Maybe. Maybe not. All I can say is that the clue is in the pic itself!!!” That was perhaps the tipping point for their fans who were completely convinced that the duo were seeing each other.

However, a day later, the Bollywood star clarified that the gossips and rumours were worth nothing as she simply meant to endorse a product and her new phone. “Wow guys! I couldn’t imagine that a beautiful photo and a simple caption could actually demand a video. I guess the picture was that amazing but now, to clarify, again, my perfect partner is my new phone,” she said in a video uploaded on her official Twitter handle.

Well, celebrities often resort to such measures to promote a product, which keeps followers tuned to what is to be revealed next. On the other hand, in the age of social media, such rumours are bound to spread like wildfire.
