But now in an exclusive interview with Bombay Times, the couple spoke a length about their said relationship for the first time and it's not what you are thinking!Avika Gor who shot to fame from Colors hit how 'Balika Vadhu' Manish says, "The gossip affected me in the beginning and I was stupid enough to maintain a distance from Avika.We are good friends and will always be, but I have no intention to date Manish.” Avika was at a tender age of just 13-year-old when she first started shooting with Manish, who was 19 years older than her and it came as a shock to both of them when rumours of their alleged affair started doing the rounds, but now looks like every thing is crystal clear with the duo being just good friends and nothing more!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".Her openness helped us to be on the same page and work together.We are a great team and have many common friends who we associate with professionally." We share a unique bond of friendship, which is inexplicable.
People really liked it."Manish was always into photography. It was interesting then we thought to do something from the heart, and then we started making films. I was 13 when all of this (dating rumours) started. So there was no point of even thinking about stupid stuff like this. I don't have the time to be in a relationship right now," she added.
They launched the poster of their short movie "Ankahee Baatein" at the 69th Cannes Film Festival's Short Film Corner last year.
Avika Gor, who shot to fame as chhoti Anandi of "Balika Vadhu," is reportedly dating Manish Raisinghan.
Avika and Manish, who were paired opposite each other in "Sasural Simar Ka," share a good on-screen and off-screen chemistry.
Avika and Manish, who are more popular by their character names Roli and Siddhant (Ro Sid), started working together in Colors' daily show "Sasural Simar Ka" in April 2011.
