MUMBAI MIRROR (June 23, 2017)

Sonakshi Sinha sprang a surprise by shaking a leg with Arjun Kapoor on Thursday during the finale shoot of the dance reality show, Nach Baliye, which he judges. She had reportedly refused to share the stage or even a page with her Tevar co-star after the release of their only film together.

Back then, there were rumours of the duo dating and even planning to tie the knot, which Sonakshi had vehemently refuted. But after that she has kept her distance from the actor till yesterday, when he came on the show with his chachu, Anil Kapoor, and co-stars Ileana D’Cruz and Athiya Shetty, to promote their upcoming wedding comedy, Mubarakan.

According to a source from the sets, after finalists Divyanka Tripathi and husband Vivek Dahiya performed to the remixed version of “Har Kisi Ko Nahi Milta” that Sonakshi had recreated with Akshay Kumar in her 2013 release, Boss, from Anil’s original Jaanbaaz song, the senior actor went on the dance floor to groove to the familiar tune. He then challenged his nephew and Sonakshi to join him on stage.

“She readily agreed and both had a lot of fun dancing to the remixed track. There was no awkwardness between them,” says the source, adding that they even posed for pictures together, standing shoulder to shoulder.

Arjun had earlier appeared on the show with Shraddha Kapoor to promote Half Girlfriend, but on that episode Malaika Arora had replaced Sonkashi. They too had danced together!
