A lot has already been said and written about Avika Gor and Manish Raisinghan's relationship. From being apprehensive about playing husband-wife on screen in Sasural Simar Ka, to developing a professional relationship to being rumoured to be romantically involved with each other, the duo has seen it all. They are always spotted together during events and their social media handles are full of their pictures. But, are they dating? No! They are good friends and make a great professional team. They are now all set for a second outing at Cannes with their latest short film.
In a recent interview with Times of India, they opened up about the equation they share with each other and how their relationship has evolved over time. Although, the link-up rumours do not affect them now, there was a time when it made them uncomfortable. Manish told the newspaper, "The gossip affected me in the beginning and I was stupid enough to maintain a distance from Avika. I became conscious and irritable during that phase. The rumour made me sick. But later, I realised that if my intentions are clear, why should I treat her any differently? I have never dated her; she is almost half my age. We are compatible, but I have never seen her that way. Anyway, such loose talks don't affect me anymore and we meet for work now."
On her part, Avika said, "Manish is a just few years younger than my father, so there is no scope for any romantic involvement. We share a unique bond of friendship, which is inexplicable. It is based on understanding, respect, honesty and maturity. We are BFFs and he is a strong support system. I call him Shin Chan (the popular comic character) and he calls me Mitzi (Shin Chan's mother) till date.We have maintained our friendship in a dignified way till now. We are good friends and will always be, but I have no intention to date Manish."
