Actress Avika Gor says people often talk about her “romantic relationship” with her former Sasural Simar 

Ka co-star Manish Raisinghani, but she asserts they are just the “best of friends”.
Apart from acting, the Balika Vadhu star enjoys going behind the camera. “This (directing short films) started because of Manish’s and my fans. Back then in Sasural..., there were no romantic scenes between me and Manish. Fans wanted us to see us together. So, we wrote a five-minute script and put it on YouTube. People really liked it. Manish was always into photography. I was also learning with him. It was interesting then we thought to do something from the heart, and then we started making films. Now, our film is travelling to different parts of the world,” Avika told.

They launched the poster of their short movie Ankahee Baatein at the 69th Cannes Film Festival’s Short Film Corner last year. But the news of the two dating kept popping up. Was she affected?

“Absolutely not. I was 13 when all of this (dating rumours) started. He was 32. So there was no point of even thinking about stupid stuff like this. Whenever those articles came, we laughed it off.”
