Ishqbaaz’s Rudra aka Leenesh Mattoo is reportedly dating his former co-star Nehalaxmi Iyer.
Nehalaxmi played the role of Saumya, a radio jockey and Leenesh’s love interest in “Ishqbaaz”. She was Rudra’s BFF and later fell in love with him. Nehalaxmi had to make a sudden exit from the show after the makers decided to bring in a new girl in Rudra’s life.
While it was entertaining to watch the crackling chemistry between the two, suddenly tracks changed and Nehalaxmi was out of the show. While the actress is no longer a part of the show, her friendship with Leenesh, her co-actor has blossomed into love.
A source revealed to TOI about the couple and said, “Leenesh and Nehalaxmi started seeing each other after two months of friendship. In fact, Leenesh also turned fitness guru for her when she was trying to reduce weight that she had piled up for the show. They have found a comfort level which is seldom seen in couples. The two have no plans for marriage right now as they are busy with their careers.”
Nehalaxmi is no more a part of “Ishqbaaz”, but Leenesh and Nehalaxmi are still in touch and keep sharing pictures of each other on their social media accounts.
While Nehalaxmi could not be reached, Leenesh said, “No comments.” when asked about his relationship. Ask him if he misses his co-actor on the show, since he is romancing another actress Mansi Shrivastava and he said, “Yes Nehalaxmi was a good actor and we looked good together.”
Leenesh and Nehalaxmi make a cute couple.
