Enough is being written and said about Asim Riaz's alleged love affair with Shruti Tuli outside Bigg Boss house. This morning, even his friend Sonal Vengurlekar told us that he is in a live-in relationship with Shruti. Now, in an exclusive chat with SpotboyE.com, Shruti talks at length about these rumours.
Here are the excerpts:
How do Asim and you know each other?
Asim and I both are models and we are from the same agency. We met there and slowly became good friends. Our friendship grew over boxing as he is a good boxer and he used to teach me that sport.
When did you meet Umar?
Couple of years back, I guess. He had shifted to Mumbai for his work- and then we three started chilling together.
Do you know Sonal Vengulekar?
Sonal and Umar were good friends. I have met her just once, that too on Asim's birthday last year. That time, I remember she desperately wanted to do Bigg Boss. I think she was an actor or something.
She has said that you and Asim were in a relationship- but you are not accepting it...
I seriously don’t know why she is coming out of the blue and saying all this, it’s probably to get some mileage for herself. Also, if I was in a relationship with a guy six months back that doesn't mean I am dating that guy now also.
So, have you and Asim dated?
You can say our relationship is more than friendship but we never dated.
Sonal said you two were in a live-in relationship...
I don't know what makes her say that but she needs to understand that if a person is not having an affair, how can they be in live-in? (Pauses)
I think Sonal has some problem with Umar Riaz and wants to get back at him but using my name for that makes no sense.
Your take on on Asim and Himanshi's ongoing love story?
I really don't know what exactly is going on their mind. It’s their life end of the day, what do I say? But I am waiting for this Bigg Boss season to get over so that I can discuss with Asim what exactly is going on his mind. Sometimes, we feel he really feels for her. But the exact status, we will get to know only once he is out.
In yesterday's episode, he confessed he has someone outside. Aren't you that girl?
No, I am not that girl.
Then who is she?
She is someone else and I know about her. But I can't take her name.
Vikas Gupta claimed that Asim hasn't broken up with that girl yet...
Vikas is making those allegations on some pictures from social media.
He doesn't even know me personally. Just because I posted a picture with Asim on social media once on his birthday and I wrote 'love you' that does not mean we are having an affair. Mujhe thodi pata tha future mein Asim Bigg Boss mein jaayega aur log humko is word par girlfriend-boyfriend bulane lagenge. We write love you to our friends also.
What about the pictures you deleted from your account with him when he entered the house?
Asim and I had a misunderstanding me and Asim. I deleted pictures with him and he did the same. Friends often fight and do such things, that doesn't mean you are doing things intentionally and honestly speaking it was just 2-3 pictures which had nothing more than our smiling faces. And all that was way before Bigg Boss. I can post those pictures now also, but I don't want people to use them to say, okay, so what’s brewing.’ You know how it is.
Did Umar reach out to you after our Sonal story?
Yes, we are good friends and in fact, he sent me this article. I asked him she’s doing all this? Even he doesn't know. So, I thought I should call you and clear the air.
