Actor Abhay Deol posted a series of romantic photos with Shilo Shiv Suleman with the caption 'tribe.' No, there was no confession of love, nor was there any hashtagging to imply it. But the images were provocative enough, at least according to Abhay's fans. And they're not having a good time of it.
He posted three photos, all of which included Shilo. In the first, they are seen cosily posing for a picture, with her palm resting on his cheek. In the second, Abhay is seen kissing her on the cheek. While looking away from the camera and in the third, Abhay is seen suggestively licking her cheek. What was the end result? An Instagram squabble over who Shilo Shiv Suleman is and if it means that Deol is taken.
Here are the pictures:

"Fluid, free, flowing, creative, soothing, fun, fearless, sensual, calming, inspiring, dynamic, talented, sexy. Oh and @shiloshivsuleman is all of those things too! #tribe #community #artist #freespirits #thefearlesscollective (sic)," Abhay captioned the images.
Well, they were heartbroken, to say the least. While many wished them luck, including friend Monica Dogra, who wrote, "Love you both (sic)." Most others were, well, not happy that Abhay ruined their day. One fan wrote, "oh well," while another wrote, "my heart is broken, somebody pls declare it A NATIONAL HOLIDAY. You can not do this to my fragile heart. BUT I AM HAPPY FOR YOU." Another cheeky fan wrote, "Alexa, play Jag Soona Soona Lage."
Shilo Shiv Suleman commented on Abhay Deol's post, and wrote, "Nothing taboo on this table. more adventures soon!"
