Did Janhvi Just Confirm She's Dating Shikhar Pahariya?

April 10, 2024 15:13 IST

Maidaan's special screening was a star-studded affair, as film folk arrived to watch Ajay Devgn's new sports biopic. Read the review here!

What caught everyone's attention was Janhvi Kapoor's necklace.

The neck piece has 'Shikhu' written on it, the nickname of Janhvi's rumoured boyfriend, Shikhar Pahariya.

Is the relationship confirmed then?

Janhvi had this to say about Shikhar on Karan Johar's Koffee With Karan: 'I think not just for me but for her (Khushi) and for dad and for everyone in our family, he has been there from the start.

'As a friend, in whatever capacity and not in a way that made me feel like he is expecting anything or is a pushover, any of those things. He was just there in a very selfless, dignified way and in a way that I have not seen many men capable of being for another human being.'


Maidaan has been produced by Boney Kapoor, and his children, Janhvi and Arjun Kapoor cheer for him.


Priyamani stars in Maidaan, and can't stop raving about her co-star: 'In Maidaan, we share so many scenes where I am the one talking and he (Devgn) is just reacting with one word. And even that works so well.

'The way he has moulded himself in Maidaan as Rahimsaab (Syed Abdul Rahim) is amazing.'


The star of the evening, Ajay Devgn.
