Mumbai: With rumours of Shahid and Priyanka’s growing proximity dubbing them Bollywood’s ‘it’ couple, grapevine has it that the two are pit to become one of the strongest couples of filmdom.

The two actors were recently spotted together at Tarun Mansukhani’s (‘Dostana’ director) birthday bash. Shahid and Priyanka both came and left together in Shahid’s car and avoided any direct eye contact while getting off the wheels while walking into the building’s elevator.

Incidentally, this is not just the first instance of them being seen together. When Priyanka was hospitalised recently at the Lilavati hospital after fainting on the sets of ‘What’s Your Raashee?,’ it was the dimpled actor, who was constantly present to comfort Priyanka. Even his father Pankaj Kapur paid a visit to the ailing actress. According to an undisclosed source from the ‘Kaminey’ unit, “The two have been out for dinner quite frequently. Sparks were flying on the sets of ‘Kaminey’ but love blossomed after the shoot. It’s no surprise that they are dating.”

Reportedly, it was Piggy Chops who played a perfect host at Shahid’s birthday bash at China House. News has it that the love smitten Shahid and Priyanka constantly exchange messages on Facebook and it was Priyanka who first introduced Shahid to the networking site and also nicknamed him as Shaks.

According to latest B-town buzz, lissome Priyanka is very fond of Shahid’s bike too and the duo love late night long drives. How romantic right!
