It was also rumoured that Sidharth Shukla and Akanksha Puri had dated once.
As audiences await Bigg Boss 14 to begin soon, the previous season of Bigg Boss and especially its winner Sidharth Shukla keeps grabbing the headlines. Paras Chhabra's ex-girlfriend and potential season 14 contestant Akanksha Puri was a 'household' name in the Bigg Boss house especially after Salman Khan asked Paras Chhabra about his exact relationship with Mahira Sharma, saying that Akanksha Puri was worried outside.
It was also rumoured that Sidharth and Akanksha Puri had dated once. Now, in a recent interview, Akanksha spoke about Sidharth most sweetly and said that he is perfect boyfriend material.
She said, "I feel any girl who will date Sidharth will be really lucky. He is a very intelligent, sorted, and sensible man. Sidharth is also very straightforward. He has the guts to say what is in his mind, and stand by that. He has immense knowledge and loves to share that with people."
Akanksha also said that both her and Sidharth were good friends at one point in time. "Things between us did not progress till the level of dating or a relationship. I began seeing someone else and it kind of ended. I do not regret it, though," BollywoodLife quoted her saying.
For the uninformed, Sidharth is also rumoured to be hosting the show alongside Salman Khan in the new season. A few days back, BollywoodLife had quoted a report saying, "Sidharth has come a long way since his stint in the Bigg Boss 13 house; fans continue to shower him with a lot of love after the show’s conclusion too. In fact, one cannot deny the fact that the number of his followers have increased in the past few months. Keeping his popularity in mind, the makers have decided to rope him for Bigg Boss 14 too. However this time not as a participant but for a special segment."
