While rumours of them being in love have been doing the rounds since 2016, Mohsin Khan and Shivangi Joshi had maintained the ‘good friends’ stance. However, it is now confirmed that the onscreen KaiRa are ShivIn in real life too. In a statement to The Times of India, Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai’s Mohsin Khan aka Kartik admitted that they have started dating. He says it is only recently that the couple have started going out together. Fans will remember that Mohsin and Shivangi were quite upset after a portal carried a report about them dating last year.
According to them, the actress’ mom was quite miffed seeing the proximity between the handsome hunk and her daughter. The two slammed the portal after this news. The actor also spoke about they did not allow dating rumours to affect their work or friendship. He told The Times of India, “Several theories have been doing the rounds, including our link-up, but we didn’t allow it to affect our friendship or work.

In fact, there was nothing to talk about initially, since we were just friends. Our friendship graduated to love only recently; it’s just been a month-and-a-half. We rang in the New Year with my family. Funnily, we haven’t gone out on an official date yet, owing to our erratic schedule.”
The two have done complete justice to their roles and Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai is one of the top 10 shows in the country. Producer Rajan Shahi also appreciated the hard work put in by the youngsters in an interview saying that they allowed the writers a lot of creativity. The chemistry between the two was unmissable in the various bytes they gave for channels and fans longed for them to a couple in real life too. Talking about what he loves about Shivangi, Mohsin said, “I haven’t really thought about it. I guess it’s her innocence. We are still exploring each other. It has been a long friendship and a beautiful journey, which has now blossomed into love.”
