Looks like television actor Ssharad Malhotra has found love again after parting ways with Divyanka Tripathi, with whom he was in a relationship for more than seven years.

Rumour has it the actor and Yuvika Choudhary of "Bigg Boss 9" fame are growing close to each other. Both actors, who are currently playing for Kolkata Babumoshayes team in the ongoing "Box Cricket League 2," are spending a lot of time together, reports.

Interestingly, both Ssharad and Yuvika had participated in the first season of the reality show "Zee Cinestars Ki Khoj," and have since then been friends, and share a great bond. "With the two knowing each other from their Zee Cine Stars time, they share a great bond and friendship. As they have joined the same team now, they are spending a lot of time and thus the smokes of rumours. Since both are single (Ssharad broke up with Divyanka recently), people tend to hook them up. But thankfully they are mature and are taking the fun teasing sportingly and with a pinch of a salt, [sic]" a source told the web portal.

However, Ssharad refuted the rumours, claiming they are just good friends. "They do it for fun. We are just friends and nothing beyond that," the actor said.

Recently, there were reports that Ssharad and Yuvika would share screen space in Ekta Kapoor's new show "Kasam." However, the deal between the makers and Yuvika apparently didn't materialise and the role went to Kratika Sengar Dheer. "Kasam" is currently garnering positive response from viewers.

In other news, reports have been doing rounds that Divyanka and and Vivek Dahiya, who got engaged in a hush-hush ceremony Jan. 15, are all set to take their relationship to the next level. The couple is likely to get married in July this year.
