TV stars Mohit Raina and Mouni Roy‘s relationship status is often ambiguous as fans and the media keep speculating whether they’re together or not. The two also like to tease the world by posting photos with each other with cryptic caption, but as per Mohit’s latest statement, it looks like they’ve decided to take the “we’re just good friends” route. During an interview with Indian Express, the actor spoke at length about his bond with Mouni, while dismissing dating rumours –

I have always maintained that my personal and professional life is completely apart. As for Mouni, it is only the assumptions of people that we are dating. I have a lot of friends but not all are from the industry and you can say that the only close celeb friend I have is her. So whenever we are spotted together or we post pictures of each other, everyone assumes that there’s something more but aisa kuch bhi nahi hai (it’s not like that). Mouni was a co-star who became a very close friend and continues to be so. We genuinely have a very strong friendship and utmost respect for each other. We are similar people with similar stories. Mouni and I, both are from non-filmy families and come from really small towns. She has her father’s blessing, who is no more and which is also the case with me. We also have been working hard and achieving on our own. There are a lot of factors that have brought us in a different place where we have immense mutual respect towards each other. As for me, I really have a lot of pride for what she is doing in her career and winning laurels for herself. Also, who wouldn’t want his name linked to a film actress, it always works in favour (laughs).

Who would’ve thought? Also, TIL that like Virat and Anushka have #Virushka and Ranveer and Deepika are #DeepVeer, Mohit and Mouni are called #MoMo and everything in the universe suddenly makes sense again.
