Kriti Sanon and Prabhas will soon be seen together in Om Raut’s Adipurush. The film also stars Saif Ali Khan in the lead role.
Kriti Sanon and her Adipurush co-star Prabhas dating rumors made headlines last year. Rumors were also fueled by Kriti’s Bhediya co-star Varun Dhawan when he appeared in Jhalak Dikhlaa Jaa and said in Hindi, “Kriti Sanon is not in the list because her name is written on someone else’s heart”. “There is someone who is not in Mumbai who is currently shooting with Deepika Padukone and that is her,” Varun added. Months later, Kriti Sanon has now revealed how Prabhas reacted when he told her the joke.
In a recent interview, Kriti Sanon recalled how she dialed Prabhas and informed him about what Varun had said. He also revealed that the Baahubali star was “confused” by Varun’s comments.
“When Varun said that, I felt really bad – I felt like I have to tell Prabhas. I picked up the phone and told her what Varun said. He said, “But why?” I said I don’t know. Prabhas asked why did she say that? So I said, ‘I don’t know, Varun has gone mad…'” she told the BBC. Kriti also shared that she asked Prabha not to take it seriously.
For the uninitiated, after the incident, Kriti also issued a statement denying the dating rumours. “This is neither pyaar (love) nor PR… our Bhediya has gone a bit too wild on a reality show. And his quirky banter led to roaring rumours,” she said referring to Varun. “Before some portal announces my wedding date, let me burst your bubble. The rumors are TOTALLY baseless!” added the actress.
Later, Varun also shared Kriti’s post on his Instagram Stories and wrote, “Guys UI had a good time but the channels just edited it for fun to make them feel good. We took it as humor, don’t let your imagination run wild.”
Meanwhile, on the work front, Kriti Sanon was recently seen with Kartik Aaryan in Shehzada. She will next be seen in Om Raut’s Adipurush opposite Prabhas and Saif Ali Khan. The film is currently in post-production and is slated to release on June 16, 2023.
