Indian cricketer KL Rahul was recently spotted with the Bollywood actress Nidhhi Agerwal in Bandra, Mumbai. Rumors suggested that they are dating each other, but Rahul defused the discussion by revealing the truth.
In a chat with NDTV, the 26-year-old said that they are not into a relationship and there is nothing to hide if he dates someone.
"Can't a guy and girl be friends, is it so hard? I have known her for a long time, we both come from the same city. It's great to see the progress she is making in her field. We have known each other even when I was not a cricketer and she was a Bollywood actress," the Karnataka cricketer said.
Rahul said there were other friends too but the media only highlighted the two of them. "It was not just me and her hanging out, there were three or four more people from Bangalore. It's good to catch up with friends and I assure you there is nothing happening. If I am seeing somebody, I'll make sure everybody knows. I will treat my woman like a princess and not do any hiding," Rahul added.
