If you’ve been a Bollywood enthusiast for long enough, you know that one of the ‘go-to’ tricks in the business before a new release is to spark off the rumour about the leading couple dating. However, looks like we’re in the middle of some serious winds of change. Athiya Shetty and Sooraj Pancholi, who’re debuting with Hero soon, have been made to observe a strict ‘no dating policy’ on shoot. That’s right!
According to a report in DNA, the two were not allowed to date each other while they shot the film and the same is likely to continue now as they begin the promotions. And that’s not all! Apparently, it’s the duo’s parents who’ve put forth this clause. We hear that neither Athiya’s dad Suneil Shetty or Sooraj’s father Aditya Pancholi were keen on their children hooking up because they’re just starting their careers. Also, we presume that Sooraj probably wants to stay out of the dating pool too, considering his recent run-in with the law.
Either way, we think it’s refreshing to see actors not wanting to piggy back their film on their alleged relationship status. Way to go!
