Who would have thought that after their first meeting on the sets of ‘Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara'(2011), co-actors Farhan Akhtar and Kalki Koechlin, would now be looking to each other for a second chance in love.
News of Akhtar’s separation from his wife of 16 years, Adhuna Bhabani, made headlines recently and Koechlin’s divorce from director Anurag Kashyap last year, after four years of marriage, makes them both the newest singletons on the block. If reports are to be believed, the buzz is that Akhtar and Koechlin are in fact dating each other and are planning to move in together soon.
Although known to have grown close as friends during the shooting of ‘Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara’, stories of their increasing fondness of each other had come to a halt once the movie had released and promotions had come to an end, as the couple is said to have drifted apart.
However, now that Akhtar is single again, the two seemed to have reconciled. A source divulged further, according to Pinkvilla, “Even though they didn’t have many chances to meet, the two kept in touch with each because they got along really well on the sets of Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara. But now that Farhan [Akhtar] is alone, they seem to have gotten back together and not just as friends. They have been meeting each other for the last couple of months.”
It remains to be seen whether either decide to talk about each other publicly at any time to bring their status out in the open.
