In less than two years of her debut, Sara Ali Khan has emerged as Bollywood’s sweetheart. With an amiable face, killer body achieved after inspiring hard work, jovial personality and a humble nature with all that wisdom, the Simba actress makes it very difficult for one to not get attracted to her.
And hence, at quite the tender age, the grandson of Union Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde, Veer Pahariya, fell for the young charmer. He is the one Sara had confirmed as ‘the one boyfriend’ she has ever had. Pictures of the two had surfaced on the internet way before she had entered show-biz, and the lovey-dovey couple were on cloud 9 in each other’s company. But as destiny would have it, this jodi didn’t last. Good thing is, Sara didn’t suffer a heart-break after the two parted ways. Talking about heartbreaks, she says, "Hasn't happened. My heart has not broken. It is all good, I promise."
Now, Pahariya wasn’t the only one to be linked with the actress. Ever since her return from New York after completing her education, she has managed to rule headlines. Reliable film magazines and websites had once reported on Ishan Khattar spending too much time with Sara, and that they could be – or not – a pair. Gossip mills got back to work, and the news spread like wildfire. None of them ever addressed these speculations and the rumors died a natural death.
The beauty was also seen sharing frames with Jenner sister’s BFF, Orhan Awatramani, at a Christmas gathering hosted by Saif Ali Khan. This was a lead strong enough to kick off dating rumors. Gossips about Sara and Orhan weren’t new; the two were classmates at Columbia University, and had tongues wagging even back then. Orhan’s graduation day pic with Sara, captioned, “Happy Graduation to my one and only” added fuel to the fire.
Sara was linked with Anil Kapoor’s son, Harshvardhan Kapoor a few months later. Their frequent meetings had sent the town whispering about a budding romance. Pictures of the star-kids on dinner dates would make rounds of social media and add to the speculations. As she geared up for a career in Bollywood, she called times up on this affair, allegedly.
Soon after Sara started shooting for Kedarnath, her ‘closeness’ with co-star Sushant Singh Rajput gave way to fresh rumors of a new romantic possibility. The co-stars had certainly grown to be good friends, and their chemistry was evident not only on 70 mm but also at all the promo appearances they had made together. However, according to recent reports, Sushant has declined an offer to work with Sara for a commercial. He had also unfollowed her back in March – Is Sara fessing up her crush on Kartik Aaryan on Koffee With Karan the reason? Guess, the world will never know.
Interestingly, after she mentioned Kartik on Karan Johar’s show, the universe seemed to have played their cupid, and Imtiyaz Ali roped them in for his next. A perfect picture of the two from the sets of their upcoming movie has been shared widely on social platforms. Sara had even reached Mumbai airport to receive her ‘rumored’ boyfriend; they have been papped holding hands, their snaps from a candlelight dinner landed online (Sara was beaming in her signature white salwar-kameez), and, apparently, they are gym buddies also. Need further explanations?
While we can’t stop drooling over their oh-so-adorable pics, buzz around town is, they have called it quits. What a bummer!!!
Well, the treasure of a human Sara appears to be, her wait for true love won’t be a lengthy one. Who knows if the twenty-something already has a long queue of guys lined up at her gate to take her home to momma.
