KL Rahul on link-up rumours with Alia Bhatt's BFF Akansha Ranjan: I am committed to cricket right now

KL Rahul is one cricketer who has been making headlines on the field as well as off it. If his stellar performance at the World Cup 2019 grabbed eyeballs, his relationship status has also been the talk of the town. From Niddhi Agerwal to Athiya Shetty to Sonam Bajwa, KL Rahul has been linked to many beauties in the recent past. And the latest to join the bandwagon is Alia Bhatt's bestie Akansha Ranjan. Buzz has it that the two have been inseparable ever since they hit it off a few months ago. But KL Rahul recently said that he is only committed to cricket right now.

KL Rahul was asked about his link-up rumours. To which, the cricketer replied that he has no idea about the reports written about his relationship status.

"Oh, all these things have been written about? I don't really read the papers, so I don't know what has been written about me. I have learnt to keep my personal life personal and not make it a thing to talk about. I am committed to cricket right now," he told Bombay Times.

When asked if he is single or not, KL Rahul dodged the question saying, "I don't really know. When I figure that out, I will give you a call and tell you."


Before Akansha Ranjan, KL Rahul was linked to Suniel Shetty's daughter Athiya Shetty. It was in June that the rumours of them dating spread like wildfire. A source told an entertainment portal, "Rahul and Athiya have been going around with each other. They started dating since a little before February, this year. And things are quite serious."

Apparently, the two met through common friends. The portal also added that KL Rahul and Athiya have refrained from public appearances, to avoid speculation. Back then, Athiya and KL Rahul both refrained from making any comment.

But now KL Rahul has finally opened up on his relationship status, saying that he is only committed to his work right now.

Akansha Ranjan, on the other hand, is gearing up for her Bollywood debut. In a recent interview to Hindustan Times, Alia Bhatt said that she is excited about her BFF's debut film.


"As kids, we were in the school plays, dancing and singing together. So now, when she is taking the leap, I'm very excited. I've also read these reports about me helping her, but Kanchi has done everything on her own. She has gone for auditions, met people and sometimes, I didn't even know. Then finally she nailed the part. I'm there to give advice, but can't take away her achievements. I feel more nervous about her career than mine. I'm there for support, but she doesn't need it because she has her head in the game," she sa

Meanwhile, KL is gearing up for West Indies vs India ODI at Antigua, starting this Thursday (August 22).
