It is believed that Athiya Shetty was dating Aditya Bhandari Drake before making her film debut in 2015. They decided to part ways soon after and Athiya Shetty came to know dashing Indian cricketer KL Rahul through a mutual friend in Mumbai. Athiya and Rahul became friends in a short time with later often visiting Mumbai just to meet Athiya. Friends around them anticipated very early that friendship between both would turn into a romance soon.
Rumours around the relationship between Athiya and Rahul were beginning to go corners on the internet as both were often commenting on each other’s social media posts.
