In a surprising turn of events, popular Indian actors Tamannaah Bhatia and Vijay Varma have finally confirmed their relationship, putting an end to months of speculation and rumours. The couple, who first starred together in the anthology film Lust Stories 2, admitted that their love story began on the sets of the film directed by Amit Ravindernath Sharma, Konkona Sensharma, R Balki, and Sujoy Ghosh.
Rumors of Tamannaah and Vijay being romantically involved had been circulating for quite some time, especially after a video allegedly showing them kissing at a New Year Party in Goa surfaced. Despite being seen together in public, the duo had remained tight-lipped about their equation. In an earlier interview with Hindustan Times, Tamannaah had dismissed the rumours, saying, “Such rumours keep going around. Clarifying all of them is just not necessary. I have nothing more to say about it.”
However, during a recent interview with Film Companion, Tamannaah opened up about her relationship with Vijay. When asked about being attracted to her co-star, she emphasised that personal connections go beyond their shared profession, stating, “I don’t think you can get attracted to someone just because they are your co-star… it’s definitely more personal, it’s nothing to do with what they do for a living. I have had so many co-stars. I think if one has to fall for someone, feel something for someone it’s definitely more personal, it’s nothing to do with what they do for a living, I mean that’s not the reason why this would happen.”
Tamannaah candidly admitted that her equation with Vijay changed during the shooting of Lust Stories 2. She described Vijay as someone she looks up to and whom she bonded with organically. She expressed gratitude for finding someone who accepted her for who she is, without expecting her to change her entire life to fit their understanding.
“He is someone who came to me with his guard down so it became very easy for me to put my guard down,” she confessed. “With high achieving women, we have this problem, that we think we have to work hard for everything. And when something is so simple and we don’t have to walk on eggshells…” added Tamannah. “I think in India we also have this that a woman has to change her entire life for someone. If you have to find a partner you might have to physically move or do so many things that serve that person’s understanding but I was like I have created a world for myself and here there’s a person who actually understood that world without me doing anything. He’s a person who I care about deeply and yeah, he’s my happy place,” she concluded.
The news of their relationship has been met with enthusiasm by fans and the industry alike. Actor Gulshan Devaiah, who has previously worked with both Tamannaah and Vijay, acknowledged their undeniable chemistry, saying, “Something is there, but what is it, I don’t know. They do look like they have very good chemistry. I’m sure that means something.”
Tamannaah Bhatia and Vijay Varma’s confirmation of their relationship marks an important milestone in their personal lives. As they continue to excel in their respective careers, their love story serves as a reminder that genuine connections can develop in unexpected places. Fans are eagerly awaiting more updates from the couple, who have now taken their relationship out of the shadows and into the spotlight.
