Prabhas and Anushka Shetty in 2017’s Baahubali 2: The Conclusion set the screen on fire as a reel couple. The chemistry between Amarendra Baahubali and Devasena played by Prabhas and Anushka left all of us spellbound.
Ever since the movie came out, rumours of Prabhas and Anushka Shetty dating each other have been doing the rounds. The gossip mill was also recently abuzz with them planning to tie the knot soon.
In an interview with Hindustan Times, Anushka Shetty gave her response to all the talks going around. “We are most definitely friends. There’s nothing more between us. I’m glad people show so much interest in my marriage. When I find a man, I will settle down. I’m ready to wait to like someone and then think of entering wedlock,” she said.
Anushka was talking to the daily about her upcoming film Bhaagamathie which is slated to release on January 26, 2018. “The producers of Mirchi, UV Creations, approached me with Bhaagamathie. I really liked the story but I couldn’t immediately take it up as I was in the process of signing Baahubali, and I was aware it was going to take most of my time. The project had to be put on hold for nearly four years and we finally started shooting in 2016.”
Rumours of Prabhas and Anushka’s marriage started floating when Prabhas’ uncle, Krishman Raju, told Hindustan Times earlier this month that his nephew will be getting married this year. “He promised me he will get married by the year-end. He even asked us to search a suitable bride for him,” the Telugu actor was quoted as saying.
Since, Prabhas and Anushka had been working with each for 5 years and starred together in many films, speculations about them dating in real life grew.
Anushka Shetty rubbished the rumours. “I do come across these reports. I have a good laugh and move on. Neither of us (Prabhas) pay too much attention to these things. Prabhas is a good friend,” she told the daily.
While Anushka is busy promoting Bhaagamathie, Prabhas will be soon seen in Saaho with Shraddha Kapoor. Directed by Sujeeth Reddy, the film also stars Neil Nitin Mukesh, Mandira Bedi, Jackie Shroff and Chunky Pandey.
