Shantanu Maheshwari’s Affairs and Relationships


Shantanu Maheshwari and Nityaami Shirke

One of Nach Baliye 9's cutest couples, Shantanu Maheshwari and Nityaami Shirke, was hailed as one of the sweetest pairings. Unfortunately, the team finished as the fourth runners-up rather than taking the trophy. However, there have been accusations about them fabricating their connection ever since the start of the show. Yes, rumors that Shantanu and Nityaami were pretending to be a couple in order to appear in Nach Baliye 9 were common. However, nothing was verified. However, they quickly called it quits.


Shantanu Maheshwari and Vrushika Mehta

Shantanu remark, Vrushika and I have worked together so we definitely share a comfort zone with each other, making working with her better than working with a new female, as he shares screen time with his co-star from D3, Vrushika Mehta, once more. I know people really enjoyed Swaron (Swayam and Sharon, the on-screen pair from D3), but they were completely different from the couple we are portraying in this serial, the actor continues. Hopefully, people won't compare us to Swaron and instead prefer us here. If it occurs, I will have fulfilled my responsibility.

While the dance scenes of D3 allowed the audience to see some hot heat between Shantanu and Vrushika, he denies any dating rumors, saying, This serial is a love story, so you will definitely see some lovely moments and some chemistry, but we are not dating!
