Huge compliment that people love Yami and my pairing: Pulkit

New Delhi: Rather than getting bothered by his link-up rumours with Yami Gautam, actor Pulkit Samrat says such stories only prove the popularity of their on-screen chemistry.

The two have been rumoured to be seeing each other since they began shooting together for “Sanam Re”.

Pulkit says he and Yami are “way beyond” the stories written about their apparent off-screen romance.

“It’s been nice that people have been loving the pairing.

I haven’t seen such a response to any pairing for a long time.

It feels very nice. It is a huge compliment for the hard work that we have put in. We really appreciate that. I am very happy,” the actor told PTI in an interview.

“Gossip or rumour about personal life does not bother me.

If people are saying whatever they are saying, I take it as a compliment for the on-screen chemistry that we share. That means people like our work. Had people not liked our chemistry, they wouldn’t have said anything about us. I don’t care about the rumours. We are way beyond that.”

Pulkit and Yami have re-teamed for another love story, filmmaker Vivek Agnihotri’s “Junooniyat” and the most of the buzz around the movie is courtesy their much talked-about equation.

The actor says people might feel that he and Yami decided to be a part of the film after working on “Sanam Re” but it was “Junooniyat” which the pair had signed first.

“‘Junooniyat’ was the first film that we signed. ‘Sanam Re’ happened later and we both did not know that the other person is doing ‘Sanam Re’. We started shooting for ‘Junooniyat’ before ‘Sanam Re’ and after 10-15 days we were on the sets of ‘Sanam Re’. We shot the two films simultaneously.
