Days after the final of the Indian Premier League (IPL), senior Indian cricketer Lokesh Rahul and Nidhi Agerwal were spotted at an eatery on Wednesday and their pictures have gone viral on the internet.

There were rumours that Munna Michael-fame Nidhi is dating KXIP opener KL Rahul.


However, talking to SpotboyE, Nidhi Agerwal neither denied nor confirmed the rumours.

“I and Rahul go back a long way. We have known each other since our teenage years before Rahul became a cricketer and I became an actress. Though we did not go to the same college in Bangalore, but we have known each other for long,” the actress told SpotboyE.

Meanwhile, KL Rahul has cleared the air on his relationship with Nidhi, saying that they are “just friends”.

“Can’t a guy and girl be friends, is it so hard? I have known her for a long time, we both come from the same city. It’s great to see the progress she is making in her field. We have known each other even when I was a cricketer and she was a Bollywood actress. It was not just me and her hanging out, there were three or four more people from Bangalore. It’s good to catch up with friends and I assure you there is nothing happening. If I am seeing somebody, I’ll make sure everybody knows. I will treat my woman like a princess and not do any hiding,” KL Rahul told NDTV.
