Vijay Deverakonda says he rather have rumours written about him than be a nobody
Mumbai (Maharashtra): Vijay Deverakonda is one of the rising stars of Bollywood whose fanbase increases with every film. Now, the actor is gearing up for the release of his pan-India film, Liger which marks his debut in the Hindi film industry. But along with his rising popularity, the speculations surrounding his personal life have grown as well. While there are rumours that the actor is dating his Dear Comrade co-star and close friend Rashmika Mandanna, the actor has also been linked to many Bollywood actresses including Janhvi Kapoor, Sara Ali Khan and Ananya as well.
During one of the promotions of the film, Vijay revealed that such rumours are nothing more than “collateral damages”. “I think it’s just collateral damage of being a public figure. When people love you and want to know more about you, they’re just interested in your life. If there are news articles coming, I’m ok with it,” he said.
But adding further, the Arjun Reddy star clears that he’d rather have rumours floating about him than be a nobody that no one cares about. He stated, “I’d rather be who I am and have these rumours written about me than be a nobody and have nothing written about me. So, I’m ok with the not necessarily true stuff, or not necessarily productive stuff. I’m comfortable with it, it does not bother me.”
Vijay Deverakonda appeared with Ananya Panday on the chat show, Koffee With Karan as well where he refused to comment about his love life. But while teasing each other, Ananya did hint about his and Rashmika’s dating rumours. When asked about Vijay’s relationship status, Ananya teasingly replied, “He is in a Rush to meet Mika singh. You get it!”
