Who is Sam Merchant?
According to his Instagram bio, Sam Merchant presides over Waters Beach Lounge & Grill in Goa, boasting a substantial fan base of 249K on his IG handle. This includes notable figures from Bollywood, such as Manushi Chhillar, Tiger Shroff, and Disha Patani. A report from Deccan Chronicle reveals that before his role as a business owner, Sam Merchant had a modeling career, clinching victory in the 2002 Gladrags Manhunt Contest, a unisex pageant. This handsome entrepreneur-turned-restaurateur has not only made a mark in the hospitality industry but also left an imprint in the world of fashion.
Her rumoured bae Karnesh
While Triptii Dimri had consistently avoided confirming dating speculations with Karnesh, on December 31, 2022, she broke the silence by sharing an affectionate photo on her IG handle. The image depicted a tender embrace between the actress and the producer, unmistakably intensifying the persisting rumors about their romantic involvement.
In February 2020, Triptii celebrated her birthday by sharing a series of photos on her IG handle, showcasing moments with her rumored partner, Karnesh. One image captured the actress cutting her birthday cake, surrounded by Karnesh, while another depicted them enjoying a beach swing. These glimpses undeniably strengthened the prevailing speculations about the duo’s alleged romantic involvement.
For the uninitiated, Karnesh Sharma is a renowned producer behind films like Qala and Bulbbul, both featuring his rumored romantic partner, Triptii, in leading roles. According to reports, the alleged couple first connected on the set of Bulbbul, eventually sparking a romantic relationship.
What Triptii Dimri said about her scene in Animal
Talking about her scene in the latest blockbuster movie Animal, Triptii Dimri said, “I think the rape scenes that I did in Bulbbul were more challenging to me as a person because you are just giving up, and giving up is more difficult than finding the courage to do something. If I can overcome that, then I think this was nothing in comparison to that (her scenes in Bulbbul).”
“The scene is getting a lot of criticism as well and it did disturb me initially because I am someone who has hardly faced criticism with my first few films, this time it was a mixture of both. As long as I am comfortable, as long as people around me on set are making me comfortable and as long as I know whatever I am doing is right, I am going to do it because that is something I want to experience as an actor and as a human being,” she added.
