So the mystery surrounding Aziz Ansari’s date at the US Open is revealed. UK’s Daily Mail identifies her as Serena Campbell, 29, from Denmark, former teaching student who is studying for her PhD at London's King's College where she is specializing in plasmonics, the study of electromagnetic fields.
DailyMail.com says it received a confirmation from Campbell’s mother Kirsten, who lives in Denmark that it was indeed her daughter with the Indian-American actor-comedian. However she declined to comment on the nature of her relationship with Ansari.
The two were seen smiling and laughing, with the “Master of None” star whispering in her ear and waving at the crowd on Sept. 3. The photos created quite a buzz, as they signaled that Ansari was finally moving on after sexual harassment allegations early this year.
Meanwhile, he is currently on a tour in the Midwest, playing sold-out crowds. As he took the stage in his hometown of Charleston, South Carolina, Sept. 4 night, “the sold-out crowd let him know he was home, too, giving him a partial standing ovation,” The New York Times reports.
Ansari has been working out new material for months under the radar. In May, he performed several nights at the Comedy Cellar in New York. He also gave a series of shows last month in Wisconsin and Philadelphia.
With a possible romance budding and fans ready for his comeback, looks like Ansari has (re)arrived.
