Mumbai: After much speculation, ‘Bigg Boss’ participant Rahul Bhatt has come clean on his relationship with model Aanchal Kumar.

Rahul and Aanchal met on the sets of ‘Big Boss 4’ and rumours were rife around their growing fondness for each other. In fact, Rahul’s “I’ll miss Aanchal the most” statement strengthened the rumours.

Rahul admitted to a news daily that Aanchal and he have been dating for over a month.

Confirming his relationship status, Rahul said, “Yes Aanchal and I are seeing each other. We’ve been dating for a month now. It takes me a long time to open up with people. I have very few friends and after what I’ve gone through (the Headley episode) I’m even more wary of new contacts.”

However, Rahul hit it off with Aanchal from the very first day of ‘Bigg Boss 4’ as he added, “She is honest, trustworthy and a lovely person. I’m looking at a long-term relationship.”

Recently, Aanchal was spotted celebrating New Year sans Rahul in Goa. When enquired about his conspicuous absence, a shy Rahul added, “This year, I was with my close group of friends in Pune. But next year, I promise I’ll be in Goa with Aanchal.”

When enquired Aanchal, the model was at her diplomatic best and signed off saying, “Rahul is a friend.”
