New York: Long time friends Padma Lakshmi and hotelier Vikram Chatwal have set the rumour mills spinning, after they were spotted keeping close company during the holidays.
The 42-year-old cookbook author and Chatwal, whose properties include the Dream Hotels, were first seen in courtside seats together at MSG for the Knicks/Nets game in December, the New York Post reported.
Lakshmi and Chatwal were also said to be “inseparable” at the Dream’s New Year’s Eve Bash and were spotted boarding a private plane in Los Angeles this week.
