Recent pictures and videos of Akanksha Puri and Mika Singh sparked off wedding rumours. Pictures of the couple seeking blessings together led fans to think that the duo is planning to tie the knot.

Speaking to ET Times, Akanksha clarified that the reports are untrue and the pictures and videos are from a paath (pooja) that she attended at the singer’s residence.
“So this was a paath (pooja) that he (Mika Singh) kept at his residence, it’s done for positivity and good luck for future,” she told the portal adding, “I just went there to seek blessings but looks like people are assuming something else! And coincidentally this was on April fool’s day so people thought it’s some prank but these are genuine pictures and videos from his house!! Mika and I know each other for more than 12 years now, he is more like a family, he has always been there for me and we share a very strong bond!! But definitely, we are not engaged nor we have any such plans!!”
“I know, our fans love to see us together but sorry it’s not happening,” the Vighnaharta Ganesha actress said.
