“Arjun was asked about his link up with Alia and he got irritated. Tomorrow if I do a horror film with Alia, we will start hating each other,” an onlooker said.

“There has been buzz about Arjun and Alia but he has made it clear that he is not dating her. His outburst was spur-of-the-moment,” the onlooker added.

The actor, however, attempted to downplay the episode.

 “I am protective of Alia but my sense of humour and sarcasm got misinterpreted,” Arjun said.Alia had recently posted a picture of herself and Arjun on social networking site Twitter, captioning it, “Trying to take a selfie during Arjun's interview!"

The duo share a few intimate scenes, including a lip-lock sequence in their film '2 States' which is based on Chetan Bhagat's novel of the same name. Alia plays a south Indian girl named Ananya Swaminathan, while Arjun plays a Punjabi boy. Produced by Karan Johar, the film is set to release on April 18.
