Did Bollywood’s favourite designer Manish Malhotra finally admit that he was in relationship with filmmaker Karan Johar? The rumour mill became active after Manish’s social media post on KJo’s birthday.

Manish had written Instagram, “Happy happy birthday my dearest bestest friend @karanjohar have a wonderful year ahead 25!years of friendship and working together..and many more years to come and may you keep making the most wonderful films and keep being the spirited person that you are #karanjohar #friendship #friendslikefamily #Bff @mmalhotraworld.”

His post elicited plenty of comments from his fans with one fan calling them the ‘cutest couple.’ Manish liked that comment, which then gave rise to speculations that the designer had finally acknowledged his relationship status with KJo.


One user wrote, “You guys are so adorable! This made me happy.” Another user commented, “We love you guys, you ARE indeed the cutest couple we’ve ever seen and it’s not possible to let India hide you this way. Be proud and shout it. Tons of people out there are waiting for you to celebrate ! We love you !”

Later, Manish Malhotra told India Times, “Karan is like a brother to me. It’s just ridiculous.” Meanwhile, amidst media frenzy on his Instagram rise, Manish has now unliked the comment.
