Ever since Bijlee girl Palak Tiwari was spotted on a dinner date with actor Saif Ali Khan’s son Ibrahim Ali Khan, the internet has been going crazy over relationship rumours. While there is no confirmation about their relationship, an insider has revealed that both are currently ‘exploring their friendship’ and are just good friends. The source close to the development said: “Palak is a little private persona she never wants her personal life to be out in the media and same foes with Ibrahim. If Ibrahim and Palak went together on a dinner, that doesn’t mean they are dating each other. They are too young to fall into a relationship. For now, they are just enjoying their friendship and now it’s too quick to run to a conclusion of them dating each other. They like to spend time with each other, and their privacy should be respected.” While Television personality Shweta Tiwari’s daughter Palak Tiwari rose to fame after featuring in Hardy Sandhu’s hit song Bijlee Bijlee, Ibrahim Ali Khan is yet to make his debut in Bollywood.
