Parineeti Chopra and her recently (self) appointed mentor Uday Chopra are taking their professional relationship a little too seriously.
Apart from attending parties together (Karan Johar’s 40th birthday bash and Priyanka Chopra’s do to celebrate her cousin’s success, for instance), the Guru-Shishya duo has been spotted enjoying a hearty meal or two at various city nightspots.
For starters, Parineeti and Uday were seen dining at a Michelin star restaurant in Bandra. According to an eyewitness, the two were enjoying each other’s company perhaps a tad bit more than the sumptuous meal. And that wasn’t just a one off.
A few days later, the two were spotted sipping coffee at a Juhu five-star.Interestingly, the otherwise shy and reticent Uday was hardly spotted at public places during his much-publicised affair with Tanisha Mukerji. Evidently, the actor does not observe a similar discretion when it comes to his new disciple.
While some may feel that this obvious affection between Parineeti and her mentor would develop into something deeper, insiders claim that the two are ‘special friends’. “They have a lot of common interests. They are the best of friends. They love hanging out with each other,” said a source.
Despite repeated attempts, Parineeti and Uday remained unavailable for comment.
