Alia Bhatt and Varun Dhawan started their careers together with Student of The Year (2012), and ever since, there have been umpteen stories linking the actors with each other. But Varun isn’t losing sleep over rumours and speculation.
“It’s all good [between me and Alia]. Alia and I have worked together [in multiple films], and we enjoy working with one another. I did my first film with her and we recently shot our third film together (Badrinath Ki Dulhania; BKD). So, it’s all nice and it’s always lovely working with her. People enjoy watching us together, which is the most important thing. At the end of the day, Alia is a friend of mine,” the actor says.
In fact, towards the end of last year, rumours were doing the rounds that Alia and Varun had been on a lunch date while shooting for BKD in Singapore. At that time, Alia told HT that unlike other stories, this rumour had “bothered” her.
Speaking about the rumour, the Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania (2014) actor says, “Yes, it was very upsetting for me too. And it’s purely due to the fact that Alia and I were working extremely hard [in Singapore] on the film. We were conscious about the fact that we were pairing up for the third time, and so, we were like, ‘we should do something novel and unique’.”
The Badlapur (2015) actor says that they were “really concentrating” on their work and were putting in many hours every day with the director. “And when these things [such rumours] come in, sometimes, it makes your work look frivolous. It makes people say things like, ‘yaar, yeh log yahi kar rahein hain (these two are just messing around)’. It got irritating at that point, but now, it’s fine. It’s part and parcel of being an actor, and you also take such things with a pinch of salt,” says Varun. The actor adds that he is “completely disconnected” right now about “who is saying what or who is writing what.”
