Vijay says he is madly in love with Tamannaah
"I think it’s fairly understood now that we are dating each other," Vijay told GQ India. Further speaking about his relationship with Tamannaah, Vijay said, “I am happy and madly in love with her. I call this my ‘I’ve ended my villain era and gotten into the romance era’ phase of life.”
Tamannaah on dating Vijay
During an interview with Film Companion in June, Tamannaah had said, “I don't think you can get attracted to someone just because they are your co-star. 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.”
She had further said about Vijay, "He is someone I really look up to. He is someone with whom I bonded very very organically. He is someone who came to me with all his guard down. Then, it became very easy for me to put all my guard down... He's a person who I care about deeply and yeah, he’s my happy place.”
