What Vijay Varma messaged Tamannaah Bhatia
When asked how will he match 'the world's fifth most expensive ring that was rumoured to be gifted to her by Ram Charan's wife Upasana', Vijay told Siddharth Kannan, "Acha aapko pata hai na woh kya hai? Woh bottle ka dhakkan hai! Woh mazak kar rahi hai, aur media carry kar rahi hai stories ki it is fifth largest with ₹2 crore price. ₹2 crore mein fifth largest diamond kisko milta hai? Toh maine usko message kiya ki yeh sab fake news aa rahi hai, mujhe acha nahi lag raha, aur mera naam kyun nahi likha hai (You know that was not a diamond ring but a bottle's cap, right? She was joking with the photo and the media carried fake news about her 'ring' being the fifth largest and costing ₹2 crore. I messaged her that I felt bad that my name was not linked to her ring)."
One aspect Vijay really admires about Tamannaah
In the same interview, he said, "I think she knows what to tell me at the right time. Sometimes she'll give me a reality check, and sometimes she'll give me a word of advice. Sometimes she'll give me exactly the kind of motivation I need. So, she understands me. She knows how to deal (with me). You know, she's there, and that's the biggest feeling I have. Like she is constantly there for me. Once you have that you are not scared."
