South actor Vijay Deverakonda is currently the talk of the town as he is gearing up for his Bollywood debut with Liger which also stars bubbly actress Ananya Panday. However, the recent remarks from Vijay's co-star about his marriage and dating Rashmika Mandanna have overlapped the promotions of Liger.
Undoubtedly, Vijay and Rashoo share a great bond and have been spotted multiple times together. The duo has worked together in films like Dear Comrade and Geetha Govindam which were highly appreciated by the audience. Fans poured love and appreciation for the rich onscreen pairing of Vijay and Rashoo. Subsequently, the buzz gained momentum that the duo are dating.
During the promotional event of Sita Ramam Swaralu, Vijay appeared as the chief guest. The movie stars Dulquer Salmaan and Mrunal Thakur in the lead role while Rashmika Mandanna, Sumanth, Gautham Vasudev Menon, Bhumika and others in the supporting roles. However, as soon as the Arjun Reddy actor stepped on the stage, the crowd and guests cheered up. While interacting with quick-witted anchor Suma, Vijay turned to Rashmika and showered praises but blushed after that.
His appreciation for Rashoo would certainly spark more of such buzz. Vijay said, "Rashmika, you always look super pretty and beautiful so... Everyone is giggling as soon as I mentioned your name I don't know why."
Though Vijay and Rashoo have always maintained that they are friends, recently on July 28, Vijay graced Koffee with Karan: Season 7, where Karan Johar asked Vijay about his alleged relationship with Rashmika.
To this, Vijay said, "She is a darling and I am really fond of her. We are really good friends. We share so much through films, lots of highs and lows. A bond gets created."
When asked why he never discloses his relationship status, the Dear Comrade actor said, “I will say it out loud…but until then I would not like to hurt anyone who adores me."
He went on to add, "So many people love you as an actor and have your poster on their walls, on their phones. They give me so much love and appreciation; I don’t want to break their hearts.”
When Karan asked Ananya during the rapid-fire round to confirm “who are these actors dating”, Ananya hinted big when Vijay's name was said. She said, "He is in rush...rush to meet Mika Singh. Get It..." and burst into laughter. To this, Vijay was not surprised and just laughed it off saying, 'You really think so?'
