Actress Preetika Rao is flummoxed by reports
suggesting she is in a relationship with the director of her
successful serial Beintehaa. She has clarified that she
is single and that she has no time to 'mingle'.
"I don't know where these tall tales come from. There are two
directors for 'Beintehaa' - Ankur Bhatia and Pushkar Pandit. Both
are equally fond of me. If Pushkar calls me Aloo, a pet-name based
on my character's name Aliya, it is out of his fondness for the
character I play. Seen in that way, Ankur calls me
Mallika-e-Beintehaa," said Preetika.
She blames a photograph shared on a social networking platform,
for the romance rumour. "I guess this rumour started when Pushkar
put a picture of the two of us on Twitter. I was flooded with
curious queries about our chemistry. But tell me, does a picture on
a social media of two people have to mean a relationship between
the two," asked Preetika.
"The truth is that Pushkar and I are just cordial friends and
colleagues. I have no knowledge of or interest in his personal
life. Right now I'm totally focused on my career and don't want to
get into any distracting situation," she added.
Also, she has no time for love. "I'm single. Forget about a
relationship, the hours shooting for a television serial leave me
with no time to meet friends. Work is my only priority right
