Canadian rapper Drake, the man behind the viral Kiki challenge, is dating Bollywood actress Athiya Shetty. The rumours all started when Drake met Athiya at a party in Los Angeles.
Love is in the air in Bollywood. The actors are either getting married, engaged or having a secret romance. While Priyanka Chopra's engagement with American singer Nick Jonas has been all over the news channels and on the internet, another link-up has reportedly been blossoming on the sidelines.
The new rumoured couple is none other than Suniel Shetty's actress daughter Athiya Shetty and Grammy Award-winning rapper Drake.
The duo was lately seen indulging in some cute Instagram comments when the actress wished her dad on his birthday – August 11.
Athiya shared a childhood photo of hers with father Suniel. To that picture, Drake left a comment which read, "Legend". To that, Athiya replied to Drake with a blue heart.
This led to everyone raising questions about Athiya and Drake's connection.
As if that didn't do the trick, actor Varun Dhawan also commented, "Who knew you were Kiki". This had everyone buzzing, including the rapper. Drake was quick to reply to Varun's cheeky comment, saying, "@varundhvn titi do you love me? (mubarakan remix) (sic)."
According to a report in Filmfare, Drake met Athiya in Los Angeles and found her really pretty. After that, Drake spoke to her and the two bonded instantly.
Later, they started following each other on Instagram. The report further adds that both Athiya and Drake are managing their long-distance relationship pretty well.
The same report also suggests that Athiya will soon fly to Los Angeles to spend time with Drake.
