Rakul Preet Singh opens up on making her relationship with Jackky Bhagnani official: ‘There is nothing to hide’

Rakul Preet Singh made her relationship with actor-producer Jackky Bhagnani official last year. The couple made it Insta official first with Jackky’s post on Rakul’s birthday in October and afterward with Rakul’s reaction, where she called Jackky her ‘biggest gift’.

In a new interview, Rakul talked with regards to why the two chose to open up to the world about their relationship. “We’re both of the opinion that there is nothing to hide or be sly about a relationship. If you are in one, the best thing is to give each other that respect and acknowledge it. Let’s face it. We all know who the couples are, hiding and running. Both of us don’t come from that school of thought,” Rakul told Anupama Chopra on Film Companion.

Discussing Jackky’s birthday post for her in which he had written poetic lines in praise of her, Rakul said she was agreeably surprised to see that side of her boyfriend.  “I didn’t know he was going to be a poet. I knew he was going to wish me in public but I thought it would just be ‘happy birthday’. I didn’t know it was going to be such a poetic message. I was quite surprised,” she said.

The actress kept up with that despite the fact that she and Jackky have disclosed their relationship, she would rather not take any focus away from her work. She added,  “It is a part of my life and it exists. Just like I have my parents, my brother, I have someone special in my life. And that’s about it. I don’t want to make news of it. Neither does he.”
