Six names – Aditya Pancholi, Manish Malhotra, Adhyayan Suman, Ajay Devgn, Nicholas Lafferty (British doctor) and Hrithik Roshan coloured Kangana’s love life. We will talk about them one by one.
Kangana was a fresher and struggling with good and meaty roles when she got into a relationship with Pancholi (20 years elder to her in real life). He paid a huge amount for buying her a house. He also paid the hospital bills of Kangana’s sister when she became a victim of an acid attack. And one fine day, it was the end of their relationship. She claimed she was a victim of physical abuse.
We all know him as the Pied Piper of Indian fashion. On Valentine’s Day of 2016, both the designer Manish Malhotra and the actress Kangana decided to spend quality time with each other. They both clicked many a picture together and posted them on Twitter. Wrote Manish, “Nothing better than being with a good friend whom u can talk chill and be yourself it’s all about love.” [sic]
Love blossomed soon after Ranaut and Adhyayan met each other on the sets of Raaz 2. The two were going steady in their relationship and one fine day they called it quits. As per rumour mills, it was Shekhar Suman (Adhyayan’s dad) who was dead against the relationship as he wanted his son to marry the daughter of a prominent builder.
Apparently, Kangana got involved with Ajay when they were shooting for Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai. According to media reports, it was just a casual romance between the two. And it was short-lived since Ajay had no intentions of leaving his wife, Kajol.
Kangana was in a relationship with a doctor and scientist, Nicholas Lafferty, who was UK-based. She was initially silent about her romance with Nicholas. Later on, she confided in Simi Garewal’s show saying that she was dating the 28-year-old doctor and they were in a long-distance relationship.
At the time when Roshan Junior was waiting for her divorce with Sussanne Khan, rumours were doing the rounds that he was involved with Kangana (his co-star in Krrish 3).
Of late, a lot of gossip between Hrithik and Kangana has been polluting the air. Here’s hoping Kangana finds her next man after HR, and soon.
