He told the portal, “We used to live together back in 2015. At that time, she was also with the same agency. Disha, me, and a couple of other models were flatmates. We connected really quickly. Fitness is something that we both are passionate about and that helped us bond. So, we started going to the gym together, and had lunches and dinners together. Spent a lot of time in the house together. We became close friends.”
