Indian Idol 12 fame Pawandeep Rajan and Arunita Kanjilal have recently been in news for their alleged romance after a video from their London trip went viral in which they were seen walking hand-in-hand on the streets of London. 

However, both the stars have remained tight-lipped on their alleged romance and maintained that they are good friends and signing partners only, much to the dismay of the AruDeep lovers, who wish to see them as partners in real life also. 

Ashish Kulkarni, one of their co-contestants recently opened up about Pawandeep and Arunita's relationship and revealed how they teased them during their Indian Idol 12 stint and how he is happy for both of them.

During an interview with ETimes, Ashish revealed they used to tease both Pawandeep and Arunita during their Indian Idol 12 stint; however, it was Himesh Reshmiya who started it.

"Yes, we did. Himesh Reshammiya started it and we kept it going BTS (Behind The Scenes). Unke dono ke beech kya tha woh toh pata nahin, but we had lots of fun in teasing them," said Asish.

When he was questioned if he had seen the video which was doing the rounds on social media in which Pawan and Arunita were holding hands on the streets of London, he replied that he has seen it and when further asked what he thought of it, he said, "Badhiya hai, dono khush hai. If they are happy with each other, my blessings and love is with them."

Meanwhile, Pawandeep Rajan and Arunita Kanjilal are currently in the USA for their concert with their other two co-contestants Danish and Sayli Kamble.
