Link ups in Bollywood are a part and parcel of every actor's life.

They says when you are in love you want to scream at the top of your lungs, tell the whole world and shout it from the highest mountain.

While celebrities like Kareena Kapoor, Dia Mirza and Bipasha Basu have been very open about their relationships, the latest trend seems to live in denial.

Bollywood's young couples swear by their practice of not accepting off-screen relationships in theory but their actions do speak louder than their words.

A stunning example is Katrina Kaif and Ranbir Kapoor.


Their romance started in the sets of 'Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani' but they were in the 'No Comments' zone.

They made waves (literally) in the gossip columns when photographed holidaying together on a beach in Ibiza, Spain. Katrina was very angry, wonder if the anger was about her affair being exposed with Ranbir or being clicked in mismatched bikini.


Even after the leaked pictures sealed the secret affair both remained mum.

Katrina ignored the media and Ranbir never clearly stated that he is dating Katrina. But in an interview he did say he would "give his life for Katrina" (that says it all).


The sweet something between Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh was evident when they were promoting their film Ram-leela.

Everybody thought that it was a publicity stunt to promote their film but the mushy love that was growing between the two was visible.


Deepika and Ranveer, who blankly deny their affair, celebrated the actor's 29th birthday in Turkey. In fact, Deepika reportedly flew all the way to Istanbul, where Ranveer is currently shooting,to give him a surprise.

Both have been photographed vacationing and zooming in and out of the airpport yet remain in denial mode.

Meanwhile, Anushka Sharma, who seemed content with wishing him on Twitter, is also reportedly in Nottingham with rumoured beau Virat Kohli.


The cricketer is part of the Indian test team currently on tour in England and they will play their first test match on July 9.

Earlier the two have been photographed together taking a stroll in New Zealand hand-in-hand. Eyewitnesses have also seen Virat paying Anushka a visit while she was shooting in Sri Lanka for 'Bombay Velvet'.

But when asked about the relationship Anushka says Virat in a good friend.


The newbies are following the footsteps of the senior members of the industry.

Shraddha Kapoor and Aditya Roy Kapur's chemistry was loved and appreciated by the audience.


But the chemistry was not just on-screen and their love spilled off-screen as well. They too are probably not ready just like the others and consider each other as "just good friends".

The young Bollywood celebs who like to be clicked by the paparazzi seem content denying their affair and the couples are in-sync with the idea.

They holiday, party, arrive, depart together but just don't want to admit they are in love.
