Avika Gor, who shot to fame as chhoti Anandi of "Balika Vadhu," is reportedly dating Manish Raisinghan. Avika and Manish, who were paired opposite each other in "Sasural Simar Ka," share a good on-screen and off-screen chemistry.
Avika and Manish, who are more popular by their character names Roli and Siddhant (RoSid), started working together in Colors' daily show "Sasural Simar Ka" in April 2011. Avika and Manish were often linked to each other because of their chemistry on and off-screen.
But recent reports suggest that the two are indeed in a relationship. However, they don't want to make anything official yet. "Manish Raisinghani and Avika are definitely seeing each other but they aren't comfortable talking about it in public yet," DNA quoted a source as saying.
Roli and Sid of "Sasural Simar Ka" have been spotted at most of the events together, including the recent Colors' Golden Petal Awards. Manish is also said to be protective of her and has often said that she is his best friend.
Last year, link-up reports of Avika and Manish started doing the rounds online. However, both the actors rubbished the reports saying that they are just good friends.
"I am looking for an arranged marriage. I don't deny that she is my best friend. I was protective of her initially when she was younger. Yes, we share many common interests together, like our love for direction. I felt that she was a kid earlier and needed to be guided with love and protection. But nothing beyond that. She is almost 20 years younger to me, so I can't marry or date a lady so young," Manish told the Times of India in 2015.
"We have maintained our friendship in a dignified way till now. We are good friends and will always be, but I have no intention to date Manish," Avika added.
