The rumour mills have been churning out story after story about Harshvardhan Rane and Kim Sharma’s newfound romance. From lunch dates to fashion shows, the two have been painting the town red together.
Kim finally confirmed months of speculation that she is in a relationship with Harshvardhan by putting up an adorable birthday post for her “baby”. Sharing a loved-up picture of them, the former actress wrote, “Happy Birthday baby. Shine on.”
According to the grapevine, Harshvardhan and Kim met through common friends a few months ago and hit it off instantly. Their first public appearance at a fashion show in April set tongues wagging.
Kim was earlier married to business magnate Ali Punjani. Rumours of Kim’s marriage being on the rocks started doing the rounds after she moved back to India. She had shifted base to Kenya after tying the knot with Ali in 2010.
The grapevine was abuzz with rumours that Ali left Kim for another woman. If this was not enough of a blow, it was said that she was left penniless, as she ended up quitting her job as the CEO of her husband’s chain of hotels as well. However, she dispelled the rumours and called it “much ado about nothing”.
It was only when Kim attended filmmaker Karan Johar’s single’s only Valentine’s Day bash earlier this year, that she confirmed that she was now in the “single squad”.
