Mumbai: With Bollywood rife with rumours of Punit Malhotra, the debutant director of ‘I Hate Luv Storys’ dating Sonam Kapoor, the former has categorically denied in loud and clear terms that he is not dating the svelte actress.

Speaking on his so-called love affair with Sonam, Punit challenged the veracity of such baseless reports.

Talking to a news daily about his alleged affair, Punit said, “All that is being written about Sonam and me is rubbish. I am very much single.”

Albeit, there have been reports suggesting Sonam Kapoor going out with Punit Malhotra on a dinner date.

On the contrary, a close friend of Punit said, “That day, Sonam and Punit hadn’t gone out on a private date. They were at a common friend Shiraz Siddique’s party where there were more than 50 guests. They were seen getting into their respective cars but that’s simply because their cars were parked nearby.”

“Stories linking him with Sonam bother Punit, but there is little he can do. But it hasn’t changed their warm relationship,” added Punit’s friend.
