The fourth episode of Koffee With Karan, hosted by Karan Johar, has been released and features Liger stars Vijay Deverakonda and Ananya Panday. The episode kicked off with the Kuch Kuch Hota Hai filmmaker asking the Arjun Reddy star about his relationship status and his rumored girlfriend Rashmika Mandanna, whom Vijay starred in a few movies with.
Vijay has not immediately revealed anything about his personal life and when Karan asked her about the Pushpa actress, Vijay said: “We made two films together (Geetha Govindam and Dear Comrade) at a very early stage in my life and she is a darling, and I love her very much. She is also a very good friend of mine.”
Speaking further, Vijay explained how these rumors develop between the two co-stars on sets as he continued, “You divide through movies so much, like a lot of highs and lows, and a bond is formed. Generally, in movies, you get so close very quickly that your tires develop much faster too.”
“Just like normal it would take a while to sit or look a girl in the eye and talk, but suddenly our director puts me next to her (pointing at Ananya) and asks me to make a montage where I touch her cheek and brush her hair, suddenly a lot of ice has been broken,” concluded Vijay.
