We can’t say for a fact that Ritik Bhasin is Sushmita Sen’s new boyfriend. Especially because he states emphatically, “we are not dating”. But we are used to denials and the lad and the actress have been spotted partying together on more than one occasion. There is enough curiosity about the fella for us to dig up some dirt for you. Read on to find out about the man who has caught the fancy of the ex-Ms Universe for the moment...
1. He is 33-year-old. He owns a few nightclubs. Sush (37) has earlier dated Sanjay Narang who is also in the same business. Last week on his birthday, Ritik opened a nightclub at the Palladium hotel. He had his friends and Sush by his side at the venue.
2. His Facebook status says he is single. But then what guy advertises he is ‘in a relationship’ especially when he is seeing a celebrity?
3. He was in a long-term relationship with Ambika Khaitan but that ended a year ago.
4. He narrowly escaped death when terrorists attacked city hotels on November 26, 2008. He was in the lobby of the Taj Hotel and the girl in front of him was shot.
5. He was arrested last year for assaulting police personnel when they raided the nightclub LIV, where he is a partner.
6. He studied at Jai Hind College in Mumbai and schooled in Maryland, US. He has many friends in the B-Town from Arjun Kapoor to Abhishek Kapoor. He is also friends with Sammir Dattani and Shveta Salve.
