Kartik Aaryan’s love life is always under scrutiny. He has been linked with two young pretty actresses – Sara Ali Khan and Ananya Pandey – and it’s impossible to say who is dating who. Of course, the actors in question are always happy to duck the question to keep the interest going.
Now, the latest in this triangle is that the relationship between Kartik Aaryan and Ananya Pandey is going through a bit of a rough patch because of Kartik’s overzealous show of closeness with Sara Ali Khan.
Both Ananya and Sara are doing films with Kartik together. Ananya will be seen with him in the remake of Pati, Patni Aur Woh while Sara will be seen in the sequel to Love Aaj Kal.
Sources close to them say that Kartik and Ananya dated briefly but they figured out that they are not really meant for a very long partnership. However both of them decided to keep the relationship going in front of the press so that they could get some mileage for Pati, Patni aur Woh where Bhumi Pednekar is also part of the starcast.
That is one of the reasons why Kartik and Ananya went to very "public" dinners together where the paps were informed in advance and they would be snapped together.
However, the same strategy has now been hijacked by Sara Ali Khan who seems to be hogging all the limelight for the forthcoming film that stars them together. Take a look at this image that was liked by one and all.
"With Sara Ali Khan in the limelight with Kartik, Ananya is in a bit of a quandary. Ananya feels that the attention is on Sara at the moment and her film promotion is suffering because of that. She somehow blames Kartik for it," the source said.
Meanwhile, ETimes also reported that Kartik and Ananya are going through a rough patch because he is totally focused on the film that he and Sara are doing together. "Sara and Kartik have gotten quite close to each other over the last few months and this has not been easy for Ananya. The two have been going through a rough phase as she does not approve of this growing friendship between Sara and him. Ananya has already tried to clear her issues with Kartik and they are trying their best to make it work," Etimes quoted a source as saying.
