Talking about this rumour, the actor further added, “When I read these dating reports, I actually started laughing. All I can say is that Hiba and I are just good friends and there is nothing more to it.”

Hiba Nawab too denied her relationship with Rohan Gandotra.  “I am not dating anyone. In fact, I have been single for the past two-and-a-half years. Rohan is part of a common group of friends. We have known each other for two years now and we worked together on a mini-series. After that, we lost touch and started meeting some time ago because of our common friends. Our bonding has been gradual. I don’t want such stories to come out as my mother won’t appreciate it,” the actress said in a statement.

She further added, “I hail from a small town (Bareilly) and she wants me to focus on my work. It’s a huge deal for her to even allow me to work in this industry. Though I understand that link-ups are a part of this profession, my parents don’t think like that. My mother knows that Rohan is a friend and they have met on a couple of occasions. My girl pals will vouch for the fact that I am single. In fact, they want me to hang out with guys because I am always with them.”
