Our beloved singer Mika Singh who gave us hits song after song, is seemingly kindling a romance with actress Chahatt Khanna. The two were seen spending time together in the ongoing lockdown in response to the Coronavirus pandemic.
Mika Singh is a celebrity and musical sensation whose unique voice and stage presence shot him to fame. Nobody who has danced to Maujha Hi Maujha will deny his ability to keep us on our foot. Chahatt Khanna is a television actress who has found success in TV shows such as Bade Acche Lagte Hain and Ek Mein Ek Tum.
Rumors spread like wildfire as posts and stories appeared on Instagram, spotting Mika Singh and Chahatt Khanna together. One of the posts on Chahatt’s Instagram handle was captioned, “Let’s be someone’s quarantine, Glad we found each other in this lockdown,” with the hashtag #quarantinelove, hinting at a budding romance between the two.
Chahatt responded to dating rumors with Mika Singh by revealing that the social media posts were an elaborate ploy to promote the song that the two of them were working on. She spoke about the unreleased song, her work, and her personal life in a recent interview with an entertainment channel.
Chahatt Khanna has survived two abusive marriages and reportedly has no wish to enter another marriage. She is, however, open to being in a relationship, as she doesn’t want to miss out on anything in life. She opened up about the trauma of her past relationships, saying that, “After all, it’s a tragedy, what happened…I want to grow from the pain.” Talking about the several women who are in abusive relationships and wish to leave their marriages, she said, “it is kind of helping others through what you have been through. So that someone has [an] example to follow.” She has two children with her estranged husband, Farhan Mirza.
She is using the lockdown period creatively by working on a script, she said in the interview. She elaborated that she is currently focusing on developing the concepts she has been working on. Chahatt also made it abundantly clear that she is not keen on playing by the rules. She wants to be herself, unfiltered, and live by the mantra, “You are you, I am me.”
She also opened up about her alleged relationship with Mika Singh. She said that people are pestering her with advices, and urging her not to date him. This apparently prompted her to have a great laugh with her friends. It turns out that the whole fuss is about a music single called Quarantine Love: “It’s a music single called Quarantine Love… based on quarantine.” It is shot entirely inside the house using a phone and is yet to be released.
Mika and Chahatt are next-door neighbors, which made the collaboration easy for them. Unfortunately for Chahatt, the response to their friendship from her fans has been slightly less than positive, “A lot of people have unfollowed me, and said goodbye because apparently I broke their hearts.” She added that this kind of behavior is crazy because people don’t realize that she was just promoting the song.
It was a promotional strategy that they used for the song, but she got candid about how sometimes certain plans backfire. When asked if it was frustrating to see people more curious about her personal life than her work, she said that she had no problem with fans who want to know about her if it helps them. However, it irks her when people exaggerate and dig up her past.
Mika Singh is a prominent figure in the Bollywood music industry. He has also been a controversial figure. Not much is known about his personal life. He is, without doubt, a stellar performer who can drive the audience wild on stage.
Mika played his part in the promotional drama by sharing several stories tagging Chahatt on Instagram, which led their followers to believe that they were dating. The song is reportedly about the 21-day lockdown, how a couple copes with it. It is due to be released soon.
Although their cunning strategy may have met with backlash, it is safe to say that there is a good number of followers who are still excited about the song and are eagerly awaiting its release. Although many of her followers seem to disapprove of Mika Singh, Chahatt Khanna has made it clear in the interview that she is her own woman, and though she doesn’t want to lose a lot of her fans, she isn’t having any of it.
