Getting down to taking names, KJo pointedly asked Vijay about his rumoured romance with Rashmika Mandanna. Using the choicest words to describe their relationship, Vijay said, “I’ve done two films with her at an early stage in my life. Rashmika is a darling and I am really fond of her. She is a really good friend. You share so much through films, like lots of highs and lots of lows, so a bond gets created. And generally you get put in such close proximity very quickly that your bonds also develop much quicker. Normally, even to sit and look at a girl in the eye it would take me a while.”
When KJo finally asked Vijay if his relationship status was ‘single or complicated’, the actor quipped, “Someday I will be married and will have kids. That day I will say it out loud. But till then I wouldn’t like to hurt anybody who adores me. I am sure there are lots of people who love you as an actor and have your poster on their walls and phone wallpapers, I don’t want to hurt them. They are giving me so much love that I don’t want to say that I am with someone.”
Karan Johar had to be content with Vijay Deverakonda not spilling any beans on his romantic life.
