amrita rao is currently on cloud nine after the arrival of her bundle of joy. Yes, the actress recently welcomed her first child with husband RJ Anmol. In a recent interview, Amrita opened up about how she dealt with the link-up rumours with Shahid Kapoor when they starred together in ‘Vivah’ and the film went on to become a huge hit.

Amrita starred alongside Shahid in Ken Ghosh’s ‘Ishq Vishk'(2003). The campus romance went on to become a huge hit. Later, Shahid and Amrita also featured in Sooraj Barjatya’s ‘Vivah’ (2006). Post the film’s release, Shahid and Amrita’s pairing was loved by the audience immensely. So much so that even link-up rumours of these two actors had started doing the rounds.

Recently in an interview with Times of India, Amrita sharing about how she dealt with these link-up rumours said, “Shahid was always in a relationship when I was his co-star. Yes, the audience always wished that we were a ‘real-life couple’ but that had only got to do with our tremendous onscreen popularity. The funny part is that Shahid and I have only been very good colleagues, we were not even friends who hung out with each other.”

She further added, “But yes, we have tremendous respect for each other as artists and recently Shahid also expressed on social media that he misses working with me, which was very sweet. Why Shahid and I were never cast together after ‘Vivah’ is a million-dollar question and something to think about.”

Well, we would love to see Shahid and Amrita collaborate again. How about a sequel of ‘Vivah’? That would be exciting, wouldn’t it?
