Recently, there were rumours that Shamita Shetty and Aamir Ali could be the new couple in town. They were spotted by the paparazzi at an eatery a few days ago and this sparked off dating rumours. Now, after Shamita, Aamir dismissed the speculation and issued a video message addressing it.
In the video, Aamir said, "Hi! I don’t know what to say. My mom has always taught me to be a gentleman. If someone comes home, I generally drop them at the door, whoever that is. A friend of mine was there and I escorted her to her car. I was just being a friend and it became something else. Guys, we are single. I am single, she is single. We are just very very close friends and that’s about it. That’s about it."

He further added, "Ek cheeze khaali. Shah Rukh Khan sir bhi, main suna hun, jab mehmaan aate hai toh darwaaze tak chorne jaate hai. Toh woh theek hai, maine karliya toh, just saying."
In a viral video from their outing, Shamita was seen posing for the paparazzi happily while Aamir chose to not pose for pictures. However, sometime later, he came to her and helped her reach the car safely. Before she left, he gave her a kiss.
Soon after the rumours sparked off, Shamita issued a clarification on Instagram. She wrote, "I'm baffled by society and its convenient prudish mindset all across. Why is every action and every person subjected to scrutiny or snap judgement with no reality check? There are possibilities beyond the narrow-minded assumptions of the NETIZENS, it's high time we open our minds to it! Single n happy .. let's focus on more important issues in this country."
Shamita was dating Raqesh Bapat briefly after Bigg Boss OTT. They broke up last year and announced it in July. Aamir was married to Sanjeeda Shaikh. They got divorced in 2022. Aamir and Sanjeeda have a 3-year-old daughter named Ayra.
