Parth Samthaan and Erica Fernandes, who are seen playing the iconic roles of Anurag Basu and Prerna Sharma respectively in Ekta Kapoor’s latest production Kasautii Zindagii Kay 2, are winning a lot of hearts with their sizzling on-screen chemistry. The actors' off-screen camaraderie has also been just as good as their on-screen chemistry and this has set off rumours about them being more than just friends and love is blossoming between the two. However, refuting rumours of the link-up, Erica, in a statement to Hindustan Times, "It is news to me that such rumours are out there. But, I guess, rumours are a part and parcel of the entertainment industry." Amid Dating Rumours, Parth Samthaan and Erica Fernandes Strike a Pose at BCL Season 4 Launch – View Pic
The actress further added, "I have known Parth since we started working together on our TV show and we shoot every day. We are good friends and have a great working relationship. Whenever we chill together, we have a whole bunch of people with us. When we go for events, we are often leaving from our set, so yes, we do leave together. That doesn’t mean we go home together. In fact, we live in different parts of the city."
Erica, who does not pay much heed to what's being said about her, also said, "People believe what they want to believe. We are good friends but we are not dating. I can’t stop them nor can I explain things to everyone. From day one, we got along well. And link-ups are a common occurrence in shows with romantic storylines. It doesn’t bother me as I know the truth and I can’t stop them." On being asked if she would ever date an actor, the actress added, "I can’t say who I would date or not. For me, the person is important, his profession is not."
