Mumbai: Actors Ishani Sharma and Varun Toorkey are often mistaken as a couple by their co-workers on the set of “Humko Tumse Ho Gaya Hai Pyaar Kya Karein” due to their strong bonding. However, Ishani says they are just friends and not a couple. “Varun is a great co-star and an even better friend. He helped me a lot in my initial days in Mumbai. Apart from being a co-star, he is also an adviser, counsellor and a good companion who I was lucky to find here,” Ishani said in a statement. “In our line we are always linked up with our immediate co-star and people love when something is on between the main protagonists. These are mere rumours and I want to clarify that we are just friends,” she added. Ishani has made her acting debut with “Humko Tumse Ho Gaya Hai Pyaar Kya Karein”, which is aired on Star Plus. Varun, who has previously appeared in shows like “Uttaran” and “Qubool Hai”, is helping her in adjusting in Mumbai. Apart from them, the show also features Deepti Sharma, Sudhir Pandey and Abha Parmar.
