Shakti told the tabloid that Rohan is a very nice boy and continued, "He does come home but he has come home since childhood. Shraddha hasn't told me that she plans to marry him. To me they are still just childhood friends.. I do not know if they are serious about each other. "
The Kapoors And Shresthas Have Known Each Other For Years
"I know Rohan's father Rakesh Shrestha even before he became a photographer. I have not only done several photo-shoots with Rakesh but we two have gone out together for dinners and drinks. He is a very good friend of mine," the Coolie No. 1 actor told ETimes.
'Shraddha Will Herself Choose Her Partner & The Time When She Wants To Get Married,' Says Shakti
On being asked if he does not see Shraddha getting married for at least the next 2 to 3 years as she is very busy with her work, the actor told the daily, "I maintain that, but with time, children grow and take their own decisions. Shraddha is doing so well in her career and I am extremely proud of her. She is currently working with Ranbir Kapoor (in Luv Ranjan's next), unarguably my favourite actor of today's times. Even my son Siddhanth's favourite actor is Ranbir. Shraddha will choose her partner and the time when she wants to get married, herself."
Talking about Shraddha's upcoming projects, the actress will next be seen in Luv Ranjan's yet-to-be-titled film and Vishal Furia's Nagin trilogy.
