There are always rumors doing the rounds that Manisha and Avika are dating. They always spotted together. In a recent interview to TOI, they opened up on their relationship and Manish said," The gossip affected me in the beginning and I was stupid enough to maintain a distance from Avika. I became conscious and irritable during that phase. The rumour made me sick. But later, I realised that if my intentions are clear, why should I treat her any differently? I have never dated her; she is almost half my age. We are compatible, but I have never seen her that way. Anyway, such loose talks don’t affect me anymore and we meet for work now."
Avika also opened up on her relationship and said,"Manish is a just few years younger than my father, so there is no scope for any romantic involvement. We share a unique bond of friendship, which is inexplicable. It is based on understanding, respect, honesty and maturity. We are BFFs and he is a strong support system. I call him Shin Chan (the popular comic character) and he calls me Mitzi (Shin Chan’s mother) till date.We have maintained our friendship in a dignified way till now. We are good friends and will always be, but I have no intention to date Manish.”All Clear?
