Just last month, Shahid Kapoor celebrated his birthday in great style over a four-day weekend at Goa’s sun-kissed Morjim beach.
What’s more, while most of his guests flew down for the big party much later, he left earlier, accompanied by a certain Nargis Fakhri. Ever since, there has been widespread speculation as to whether they are the newest love birds in Bollywood.
Rumours apart, Mumbai Mirror can now tell you that it’s official – Shahid and Nargis are indeed a couple; the latest to hit tinsel town.
“Nargis is Shahid’s latest love. Since the past few days, the two are spending a lot of quality time with each other. So far, they have avoided being seen together. Perhaps they wanted to keep the whole thing under wraps for some more time,” revealed a source close to the twosome.
When did the ‘good friends’ become more than just that? Said the source, “Nargis spent a lot of time with Shahid in Goa. They were attracted to each other then and their friendship grew after returning to Mumbai. However, they started dating only recently.”
How serious is their relationship, considering Shahid has been linked to a bevy of B-town beauties including Anushka Sharma and Bipasha Basu ever since his break up with Priyanka Chopra last year? “Well, he is quite serious about Nargis and likes her company,” the source said.
Meanwhile, Nargis too has been earlier linked to the likes of Ranbir Kapoor and Shayan Munshi although according to the source, she is hardly in contact with either of them now.
We tried to get in touch with Shahid and Nargis but both remained unavailable for comment.
