Neil Nitin Mukesh has been on a promotional overdrive. And he is not talking about his films this time, but his so-called relationship with Sonal Chauhan. In fact, in a recent interview, the actor waxed eloquent about being in love with Sonal and claimed that she has met his parents and that a wedding is on the cards.
Rather than be pleased with the confessions, his ‘girlfriend’ is furious. Speaking about her harrowing experience ever since the interview was published, Sonal said she woke up to a barrage of missed calls and messages from her family and friends. Most importantly, her parents were aghast at the news. “They were very disturbed and asked me to explain. If I was in a relationship with anybody, I would definitely not hide it, at least not from them,” she said.
Sonal denied having met Neil’s parents saying, “Please, I haven’t met them.” Asked about Neil’s statements that she helped him come out from his shell after his last relationship (with Asin Thottumkal) and healed him, she shot back, “Gosh! He hasn’t even spoken about his previous relationship with me.”
Sonal, who has signed a two-film deal with Eros International, said: “I am fond of Neil as a person. I don’t know what the future holds for me. He is a genuine guy. But I don’t know why he has been speaking of us this way. Marriage? Have I gone mad that I will marry at this point in my career? I am not in a relationship with him and I certainly don’t believe in casual flings. I know him from only four months and that’s a very short time to decide and take such a big decision.”
Where does all this leave Neil? Earlier, there were reports of the actor slamming Asin for turning her back on him. And now this. A friend of Sonal told us, “This looks strangely like some publicity stunt for Neil’s upcoming film with Sonal. If that is the case, it smacks of sheer desperation on his part.”Asin Interviews Neil Nitin Mukesh Sonal Chauhan
