Indian cricketer KL Rahul may have kept himself away from controversies following the Koffee With Karan episode but his relationship has always been a hotspoken topic among fans with him being an eligible bachelor. From Athiya Shetty to Nidhi Agerwal, Rahul’s love life has always held the interest of fans. Speculations of him dating Alia Bhatt’s best friend Akansha Ranjan Kapoor has been rife.
The out-of-favour Indian opener recently took to Instagram to wish Akansha on her birthday. He posted a picture of himself with Akansha and one his friends and wished the former “Happy Birthday” on his Instagram story addressing her as his BFF. In the picture posted by the ace cricketer, the trio of KL Rahul, Akansha Ranjan Kapoor, and Ritik Bhasin can be seen striking a pose in front of the camera all in smiles.
Here is the screenshot of the Insta story:
Akansha Ranjan Kapoor shared the same picture back and responded saying that she missed her ‘No.1 person’ on the special day.
KL Rahul had recently addressed his relationship status in an interview with an entertainment portal. “Oh, all these things have been written about? I don’t really read the papers, so I don’t know what has been written about me. I have learned to keep my personal life personal and not make it a thing to talk about. I am committed to cricket right now,” he had said.
He was also asked if he was single or not, to which he responded saying, “I don’t really know. When I figure that out, I will give you a call and tell you.”
Akansha is the daughter of Shashi and Anu Ranjan, the former an actor and the latter an entrepreneur and film producer.
Her sister Anushka Ranjan made her acting debut with ‘Wedding Pulav’ back in 2015. There have been growing reports of Akansha’s impending film debut. Meanwhile, the out of form KL Rahul has not been picked for the upcoming three match test series against South Africa at home following his dismal run in the Caribbean. He would look to make a comeback in the team as early as possible.
