Asha and Rithvik all smiles!

‘We are very good friends’, quipped Asha on being questioned about her and Rithvik’s relationship. She says that she is very comfortable working with him, be it a romantic or love making scene or any sort of conflicting scenes, and it is only possible as they share a great amity. Rithvik guides her a lot in her professional work and helps her sort out personal problems as well. Asha gets along quite well with him and it is a lot more fun working with him as they share a great bonding.

Rithvik too cleverly remarked that their scintillating onscreen chemistry automatically gets transferred to reality which makes people think they have a relationship off screen too. They enjoy each other’s company but besides friendship, there’s nothing between the two. The reel life couple are not a real life couple but great buddies in real life, giggles Rithvik!
