Ever since their joint debut in The Archies adaptation, budding “It” girl Khushi Kapoor and breakout Netflix star Vedang Raina have set tongues wagging over their close friendship. While neither has directly addressed widespread relationship speculation, their trendy coordinated arrival for actress Aaliyah Kashyap’s private 23rd birthday dinner only intensified rumours.
Dinner Date Night Fashion
Stepping out Tuesday evening for the celebration at Mumbai hotspot Gigi, Khushi Kapoor and Vedang Raina drew eyes to the stylishly understated couple’s dress. Khushi Kapoor donned an off-shoulder white top and faux suede skirt pairing strappy nude heels, keeping beauty details pared back with open wavy locks and a subtle glowy makeup look.
Vedang Raina echoed her muted colour scheme, contrasting a crisp button-down with charcoal trousers and white sneakers accented simply with a thin silver necklace. Their synchronicity sparked inevitable dating chatter as they joined Aaliyah Kashyap’s intimate guestlist.
Behind The Scenes Moments
The birthday girl herself offered fans insider glimpses into the glamorous fun, sharing Instagram stories capturing her circle of friends gathered around the dinner table. Front and centre in the fun candid are rumoured flames Khushi and Vedang Raina, engrossed in personal chatter amidst the celebration and seeming comfortable in their closeness.
While the duo continued playing coy in public, Aaliyah Kashyap’s snapshots showing them at ease enjoying each other’s company added intrigue to their bond. Between the coordinated styles and body language, they radiate intimacy familiar to longtime couples.
Work Projects Heating Up
As the will-they-won’t-they guessing game among their followers continues, both have promising opportunities in their blossoming film careers keeping them occupied when not sparking relationship headlines together.
Vedang Raina won promising notices as the multidimensional Reggie Mantle in Archies. Now under mentor Karan Johar’s wing, he’s gearing up for second lead roles alongside A-listers Alia Bhatt and Kareena Kapoor in upcoming vehicles that could cement him as a marquee name himself soon.
Meanwhile, whispers indicate Khushi Kapoor may also headline a Dharma Productions rom-com opposite Ibrahim Ali Khan as Karan Johar fast-tracks the star kid generation to usher in his company’s next era.
Time will tell whether Khushi Kapoor and Vedang Raina officially transition their off-screen bond towards an on-screen jodi down the line. But their effortless chemistry is undeniable anytime they reunite.
