Manish is a few years younger than my father: Avika Gor

Balika Badhu's Anandi aka Avika Gor opens about her relationship with co-star and good friend Manish Raisinghan.

After months of speculation, Avika Gor aka Anandi of Ballika Badhu fame has finally broken her silence on her alleged relationship with co-star and good friend Manish Raisinghan.

And unlike common perception, the truth is that she is NOT in a relationship with Manish. Breaking her silence about her affair, Avika told a leading daily, "Manish is just few years younger than my father, so there is no scope for any romantic involvement. We share a unique bond of friendship, which is inexplicable. It is based on understanding, respect, honesty and maturity."

Avika also added that they are the best of friends and share a bond that is above all these dirty rumours.

"We are BFFs and he is a strong support system. I call him Shin Chan (the popular comic character) and he calls me Mitzi (Shin Chan’s mother) till date.We have maintained our friendship in a dignified way till now. We are good friends and will always be, but I have no intention to date Manish," she added.

Even Manish opened up to the daily and said that he was deeply affected by the rumours and would often be disappointed.

“The gossip affected me in the beginning and I was stupid enough to maintain a distance from Avika. I became conscious and irritable during that phase. The rumour made me sick. But later, I realised that if my intentions are clear, why should I treat her any differently? I have never dated her; she is almost half my age. We are compatible, but I have never seen her that way. Anyway, such loose talks don’t affect me anymore and we meet for work now," he said.


Three reasons why every girl needs a guy best friend

Avika and Manish are popularly known as 'Rosid', a nickname that has been derived by combining Roli and Siddharth, their character names in Sasural Simar Ka. Their relationship is proof that every girl perhaps needs a boy best friend. Here's why:

1. They give you a new perspective: Since they are of the opposite gender they offer a whole new perspective to your problems which is way different from what your girl pals must have suggested. So in a way it helps you understand both sides of the issue.

2. They are less emotional: Let's admit it, having a boy as a best friend means having a less emotional and dramatic and perhaps more of a practical relationship.

3. They let you be easy and carefree: With boys, you can do things that you can't with your gal pals such as riding a bike or a car or, maybe, even try out the new video game.  That's a refreshing change for sure!
