Love, link-ups and break-ups are a part of our B-town stars’ lives. And somehow, they manage to leave an impact on us (the Bollywood buffs) too! I’m sure you guys know what I mean because I’ve seen you rooting for Aditya Roy Kapur and Shraddha Kapoor wholeheartedly, just like I’ve witnessed many debates on Ranbir Kapoor/Deepika Padukone/Ranveer Singh.

So frankly, I don’t know how everyone is going to react to this piece of news. If reports are to go by, there’s something brewing between Sidharth Malhotra and Alia Bhatt. Now, I wonder how true that is. Is the age-old statement of “there’s no smoke without fire” true in this case? Apparently, the two have been hanging out together a tad too much lately.

Both of them have been friends ever since they had started working on their debut film, Karan Johar‘s Student Of The Year and their bond has only grown stronger with time.

While Alia has previously been linked to Varun Dhawan and Arjun Kapoor, we’ve seen a glimpse of Sid’s ex-girlfriend Nicole Meyer on the popular chat show, Koffee With Karan. Sid was also spotted with Brazilian model, Izabelle, who happens to be Virat Kohli‘s (who happens to Anushka Sharma‘s current boyfriend) ex-flame.

Is it just me or does Bollywood suddenly seem like an episode of Gossip Girl?

Anyway, coming back to Sid and Alia. Right after their first release, the duo had posed together for a photoshoot for a popular publication house. A few other B-town youngsters were also a part of the same shoot. Ayushmann Khurrana and Arjun Kapoor were seen bonding with Parineeti Chopra while Sidharth was chilling with Esha Gupta. Apparently, Alia had felt left out and was quite upset with Sid. What’s more, reports said she had even given Esha a cold shoulder at an event after that.

So was it jealousy brewing between them?

Also, Karan Johar had recently posted a picture of Alia and Sidharth on a social networking website with the caption, “The pair waiting to happen, Sid and Alia!!!!!”

We’re guessing this duo will be seen in Dharma film soon. So are these rumours about Sid and Alia being more than ‘just friends’ a publicity gimmick? Only they can answer that!
