Rumours of Sushant Singh Rajput dating Kriti Sanon have been doing the rounds for quite some time but the actor has now denied the buzz. The "Raabta" actor has issued a statement in which he said that the stories about his and Kriti's relationship are "entertaining but fictional."

"I read stories about my 'affair' with an actress. Then, it all started again when 'Raabta' went on the floors. These stories are entertaining but they are fictional. A few days back, I read that Kriti and I holidayed in Bangkok. But she wasn't there. The story was published when I came back to Mumbai after shooting in Bangkok. I know it's tempting to write such stories. But, in this case, it's sadly untrue. I am not dating anyone right now," Sushant said in a statement.

Rumours of their affair started after the two had shared some pictures from the sets of "Raabta." One report had also said that Sushant and Kriti have informed their parents about their rumoured relationship and the guardians were happy with their decision.

Sushant was earlier in news for his breakup with then girlfriend Ankita Lokhande. Soon after the news of their breakup had settled down, the actor again came in news for his rumoured increasing closeness with his "Raabta" actress.

Sushant has a couple of upcoming Bollywood movies including "Raabta" and much awaited biopic on Indian Cricket team captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni. The biopic is titled as "MS Dhoni: The Untold Story."
