Siddhant Chaturvedi made his Koffee With Karan 7 debut recently, where he was accompanied by Phone Bhoot co-stars Katrina Kaif and Ishaan Khatter. Questions about the Gully Boy actor’s relationship status were obviously on the list and here’s how he responded when KJo asked Siddhant if he had any “love interest” or not. Siddhant replied, “Right now my work is the…” Without much ado, Ishaan Khatter added, “Ask him Ananda question.” A confused Karan Johar asked, “Ask Ananda question? What is Ananda?” Siddhant quickly drifted from the question and said, “No, no I am so single, that roaming around with me, he (Ishaan) has become single. I’m so single that the only reason I wanted to be invited for Katrina’s wedding was so that she could introduce me to one of her sisters.”
Ishaan Khatter’s comment may have been a cryptic hint that Siddhant Chaturvedi is dating Amitabh Bachchan’s granddaughter Navya Naveli Nanda. The rumours about Navya and Siddhant’s relationship began in April after they frequently started dropping comments on each other’s Instagram posts. Amid the rumours, the two were pictured arriving together at Karan Johar’s 50th birthday bash earlier this year.
