I've been in a relationship for 7 years, prefer to keep it private: Sooraj Pancholi on dating, says 'bond with Jiah Khan was the shortest'


Sooraj Pancholi made his debut back in 2015 with the film Hero where he starred opposite Athiya Shetty. However his trust with films was short-lived as he was involved in the Jiah Khan’s suicide case. The actor was arrested briefly but released later. After a decade long battle, in April 2023, a special CBI Court acquitted Pancholi due to lack of evidence. However, the young actor, who was in a relationship with Jiah at the time of her death, kept a low profile both in his personal and private life since then. 

In a recent interview, Sooraj spoke about his current relationship and revealed that his relation with the late actress Jiah was his shortest. “I think my relationship with Jiah was probably the shortest relationship I have had. After that, I have been in one relationship and it’s been about seven years now, and it is beautiful. There’s nothing in the world that can match up to the feeling of being in love, being taken care of, and doing the same for the other person. For me, this relationship it’s very personal because many have judged me unfairly as a bad lover or partner, but only those close to me know how I am. The general perception is misconstrued," shared the actor. 

Talking about his lady love, Sooraj said, “She is not an actress and hence, I wouldn’t want to divulge her identity. Besides, I prefer to keep my relationship private because so much about me is out there already.”

On being asked about marriage plans, he replied, “Maybe, in a few years.”
