Telugu heartthrob Vijay Deverakonda is hogging the limelight for his alleged relationship with national crush Rashmika Mandanna. Even as the actors have remained tight-lipped about their relationship status, they have also not denied or rubbished the rumours of their love affair.

The duo has often been spotted spending quality time with each other and fans love them. With back-to-back hits like Dear Comrade and Geetha Govindam, the two are everyone’s favourite Jodi and fans would love to see them together in real life and in a movie too.

However, to the disappointment of fans, Vijay Deverakonda recently opened up on his ‘favourite girl’ and it is not Rashmika Mandanna. Well, it is none other than his ‘Kushi’ co-star Samantha Ruth Prabhu.

The two stars are currently busy shooting for the romantic drama ‘Kushi’ in Turkey and treating fans with lovely pictures on their social media handles. Earlier, Vijay had shared a series of videos and pictures of enjoying brunch at an outdoor location.

Similarly, Samantha also shared a picture with Vijay and wrote, “Sees you at your best, sees you at your worst. Sees you come last, sees you come first. Sees your lows, sees your highs. Some friends gently standby. What a year it has been!! @thedeverakonda. #Kushi”

Re-sharing Samantha’s post Vijay wrote, ‘Favourite girl’ with red heart emojis.

Even as fans are loving the chemistry of both Vijay and Samantha, they are disappointed that Rashmika is missing in the frame.

“Don’t forget he is Rashmika Mandanna’s. But, you two are good friends,” commented a fan. Another fan wrote, “Awww.. my favourite in one frame.”

Apart from Kushi, Samantha is also shooting for her upcoming web series ‘Citadel’ alongside Varun Dhawan. On the other hand, Vijay Deverakonda has ‘Hero’, ‘Jana Gana Mana’ and two untitled movies with Sukumar and Parasuram.

The movie ‘Kushi’, slated to release on Sept 1, revolves around the love story of an army officer and a Kashmiri girl from the mountains of Jammu and Kashmir.
