Mumbai: Sonam Kapoor and filmmaker Punit Malhotra, who fell in love while shooting Imran Khan starrer, ‘I Hate Love Storys’ are still going strong. The couple has been trying hard to keep their relationship under wraps since then. Buzz has it that the two, who were inseparable on the sets of the film, were forced to keep a very low profile as producer Karan Johar did not appreciate their public display of affection. Moreover, KJo and Manish Malhotra (maternal uncle of Punit) asked the debutant filmmaker to ‘concentrate only on his work’.

Sonam, however is tightlipped about her relationship with Punit and maintains that she is still single. While talking to a tabloid, a source close to the actress said, “Sonam is not single; she is dating Punit. One doesn’t know why they are not open about their relationship. But yes, they are very low profile at the moment, much more than they were even during I Hate Luv Storys. Sonam confides about her relationship with Punit to only a few close friends of hers.”

The pretty actress does not prefer discussing her personal life in public. So she feels it is best to keep silent.

“Sonam’s case is just like that of Deepika Padukone’s, who is certainly dating Siddhartha Mallya but never speaks about it publicly.But then, Deepika and Siddhartha at least go out in public. But in the case of Sonam and Punit, they invariably make it a point to have a lot of friends around them,” added the source.

And now that the news of the duo seeing each other is out in the open, will they go the Shahid-Priyanka way?
