Two years after their rumoured break-up, Sara Ali Khan and Kartik Aaryan reconnected in public for the first time. On Friday night, the performers, who starred in Love Aaj Kal 2 in 2020, were honoured as GQ’s 30 Most Influential Young Indians of 2022. Sara and Kartik were seen exchanging pleasantries at the event. The photo was uploaded on GQ Magazine’s Instagram account, and it’s no surprise that the moment has gone viral.
Kartik appears to be holding Sara’s hand in the photo while they have a brief conversation. Both performers were spotted with their certificates framed in their hands. Sara wore a sparkly short dress to the occasion, while Kartik wore a white blazer jacket over a black shirt.
Sara and Kartik’s rumoured romance started when they began filming Love Aaj Kal 2. Sara admitted to having a crush on Kartik in an episode of Koffee With Karan.
However, it was announced just weeks before the film’s release that the stars had broken up.
Sara and Kartik unfollowed each other after the release of Love Aaj Kal 2. The reason for their breakup is yet unknown. Sara stated throughout the advertisements that she was not dating Kartik.
“I’m dating him in the film,” Sara revealed to Pinkvilla. That’s the only thing that matters. On Valentine’s Day, please come and watch us ‘date’ for 2.5 hours.” “No, I am not dating him in real life,” she answered when asked if she was dating him.
