Manisha-Tariq a twosome?

MUMBAI:

There is a buzz that Manisha Koirala is dating Tariq Premji, the son of Wipro’s IT scion, Azim Premji. The two have been friends since quite a few years. Tariq, 25, is nine years younger than Koirala.

“She’s dating Tariq,” says a source close to the actress. “But right now, wants to keep it under wraps.”

Said a spokesperson from Wipro’s Bangalore office, “We can’t comment on this. Tariq Premji doesn’t sit at this office.”

Manisha, too, was unavailable for comment, but Prashant Chaudhary, her current boyfriend, denies the Tariq rumour.

“As far as I know, Manisha and Tariq are very good friends, but not dating each other. I think they are close family friends and have known each other for seven years. There is nothing more to their relationship than friendship.”
