Earlier, Vijay Deverakonda had shut down engagement rumours with Rashmika Mandanna
Fans have been wondering if the on-screen chemistry between Vijay Deverakonda and Rashmika Mandanna was due to their real-life relationship ever since they appeared in the 2018 film Geetha Govindam and the 2019 film Dear Comrade. They are rumoured to have been dating for a very long time, but in an interview with We Are Yuvaa, she revealed the truth about her relationship with him.
Everyone was listening to Rashmika talk about her co-stars—Allu Arjun, Ranbir Kapoor, Sidharth Malhotra, and Amitabh Bachchan—but nobody could ignore her comment about Vijay. The actor stated that one could say that Viju (as she fondly calls him) and she kind of grew up together.
She went on to say that she takes his counsel to heart and that he is an influence in all aspects of her life at the moment. Whenever Rashmika needs Vijay's opinion on anything, she asks for his input. He is never one to say, "Yes, but he's spot on, like he is pleased; this isn't ideal, or his opinion is this, and he even disagrees." Throughout her life, Vijay has been the one person who has offered her the most personal support. As a result, she holds him in the highest regard.
Meanwhile, the February engagement rumours were put to rest by Vijay in a recent interview with Lifestyle Asia. The Arjun Reddy actor claimed that neither his engagement nor his wedding would take place in February. The media seems to be trying to arrange his marriage every two years. Every year, he hears this rumour. It's like they're on the lookout for him; they're trying to marry him off.
On the other hand, a source had earlier told Hindustan Times that there's no truth in all such claims. Individually, they are somewhat reclusive. They have been secretive about their relationship up until this point, which has led some to question their connection. Because it goes against who they are, the suggestion that they are planning a major disclosure and engagement is unfounded.
A few of Rashmika's upcoming films include Pushpa 2, Rainbow, The Girlfriend, an untitled Telugu film starring Dhanush, Nagarjuna, and Jim Sarbh, and the Hindi feature Chaava. She appeared in the most recent film, Animal, directed by Sandeep Reddy Vanga, alongside Ranbir Kapoor.
