What do we have here—a mammoth-sized rock placed on freshly manicured nails, a mystery man clad in a crisp white shirt, and a seemingly overjoyed Sonakshi Sinha. Rumours are rife that the Dabangg actor has a someone special in her life (ahem, Zaheer Iqbal), and it seems as though the speculated couple has taken things up a notch without having made their romance Instagram-official as yet.
Earlier in the day, the 34-year-old took to social media to share three contentious photographs in succession, sparking a debate over whether the star has finally found her match or if the pictures are a schemed promotional gimmick. "Can't believe it was SO EZI," the actor wrote in her caption, which ardent fans dissected to imply: SO for Sonakshi, E for engagement, Z for Zaheer, and I for Iqbal.
While a slew of celebrities congratulated the duo on what seemed to be a hush-hush engagement, Anushka Ranjan caught everyone's attention when she commented, "You're gonna make some people really mad once you announce what’s actually up." Neither Sonakshi nor Zaheer has opened up about their rumoured relationship, although, in an exclusive interview with India Today, the latter retorted, "Now it has been so long, I don't even care. I am like, "okay if you think, then you think. Keep thinking. It's good for you. If it makes you happy that I am with her [Sonakshi], then it is good for you. Then, if it makes you upset, I am sorry."
On the professional front, Sonakshi Sinha will be seen opposite Zaheer Iqbal and Huma Qureshi in Double XL, slated to release sometime this year.
True love or a publicity stunt—what do you place your bets on?
