On the set of their film Khaali Peeli, actors Ishaan Khatter and Ananya Panday bonded. Since the film’s completion, they have been rumoured to be dating. While the couple has kept their romance under wraps, they are frequently seen out for lunch dates or strolls.
Ishaan was spotted visiting his rumoured lady love at her home on Saturday after purchasing a bunch of flowers. Flowers in white, crimson, and pink made up the bouquet.
Ishaan’s visit comes after the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) summoned Ananya in connection with the Mumbai cruise narcotics case. The NCB arrested Shah Rukh Khan’s son Aryan, along with a few others, on October 3 in connection with the seizure of prohibited substances onboard a cruise ship off the coast of Mumbai. According to a report published in The Times Of India, Ananya was summoned by the NCB following the purported extraction of her chat messages from Aryan’s phone.
On Thursday and Friday, she appeared before NCB, and on Monday, she was summoned to appear for questioning (October 25).
According to Zee News, Ananya Panday is being investigated for her WhatsApp discussions with Aryan Khan, in which she allegedly arranged ‘ganja’ (weed) for the latter.
Meanwhile, an ANI report quoted an NCB source saying, “The chats recovered from Aryan Khan’s mobile phone reveal that in 2018-19, she helped supply drugs to Aryan thrice by providing him the numbers of drug dealers.” Ananya, on the other hand, has refuted all claims of drug use and distribution.
Ananya will be featured opposite Vijay Deverakonda in the film ‘Liger.’ She also has Shakun Batra’s untitled next starring Deepika Padukone and Siddhant Chaturvedi, as well as Zoya Akhtar’s ‘Kho Gaye Hum Kahan’ with Adarsh Gourav and Siddhant Chaturvedi. Ishaan will star with Katrina Kaif and Siddhant Chaturvedi in the film ‘Phone Bhoot.’ He also stars opposite Mrunal Thakur in ‘Pippa.’
