Shahid Kapoor has long been a victim of Bollywood's gossip columns. Even after his much-publicised affairs with Kareena Kapoor Khan and Priyanka Chopra, the actor has been linked with each of his on-screen leading ladies. The last one being Sonakshi Sinha, his "R...Rajkumar" co-star.

Vishal Bhardwaj's "Haider" promotions have not begun in full swing and Kapoor has already found himself amid yet another 'alleged affair'. And this time, it's none other than co-star Shraddha Kapoor with whom he has shared screen space in his upcoming release. However, Shraddha has also recently grabbed headlines for her 'secret' holiday with alleged beau Aditya Roy Kapoor.

Going by the trailer, which captures intimate moments between the two actors, the chemistry seems to be crackling. But it remains to be seen if it transcends into real life as well. At the recent Umang Festival, the two were seen matching steps and sharing secret talks.

It doesn't end there, Shahid has apparently gone on to relieve Shraddha of her foot injury that she suffered during the shoot of Remo D'Souza's "ABCD 2". "Shahid has asked his physiotherapist to help Shraddha get back in action. Being a dancer and a fitness freak, Shahid knows the drill. He has advised Shraddha to stay away from heavy workouts and only practise stretching exercises," a source close to the development told Deccan Chronicle. Now, is that a friendly gesture or romantic advances. Only time will tell.

Shahid, who hopes to be back in the business with his intense role in "Haider", had earlier expressed his views on marriage. "I have not thought about it so much. When you fall in love everything seems right... If I fall in love that will be good enough," he told PTI.
