Aishwarya Lekshmi recently posted a photograph with Arjun Das that had got the grapevine buzzing
Malayalam actress Aishwarya Lekshmi’s latest Instagram post with Tamil actor Arjun Das has got fans asking whether the duo is in a relationship. Aishwarya, who posted a photo with the Kaithi actor, mentioned a heart emoji as the caption, causing fans to speculate.
Ever since Aishwarya posted the photo, several celebs commented with the same heart emoji. However, fans were left perplexed. “Tell us, it’s a just a movie announcement,” wrote a user, while others asked what’s happening. Fans of Arjun also wished that Aishwarya was part of the Vikram universe. Maybe it’s a “Ponniyin Selvan x Kaithi Universe” collaboration, another Instagram user joked.
All the attention made Aishwarya take to her Insta stories to issue a clarification, saying that she "didn't expect it to blow up as much". She said she clicked the photo when they met and posted it. "There is nothing brewing here. We are friends," she wrote, adding that to all Arjun Das fans who have been messaging her since she posted the photograph - "Be rest assured, he's all yours."
Aishwarya’s latest release Gatta Kusthi is currently streaming on Netflix. The sports comedy drama, which is directed by Chella Ayyavu, had the actress essay the role of a wrestler. The actress is currently part of Dulquer Salmaan’s big budget gangster action-thriller King of Kotha, which also has Tamil star Prasanna, Chemban Vinod Jose and Rithika Singh as part of the cast. The movie, which marks the directorial debut of veteran filmmaker Joshiy’s son Abhilash, is set to have a pan-Indian release later this year.
Meanwhile, in Malayalam, Aishwarya will next be seen in B Unnikrishnan’s investigative thriller Christopher, which has Mammootty in the lead. In an earlier interview with OTTplay, Aishwarya told us, “I play a small character in Christopher. I did the movie just to work with Mammukka. I did Kumari for the entirety of the film and not just for the character. But in case of Christopher, it was just for the experience of acting alongside Mammukka.”
