Telugu superstar Vijay Deverakonda has put a lid on persistent rumors about his engagement to co-star Rashmika Mandanna, setting the record straight in a recent interview. “I’m not getting engaged or married in February,” he declared, silencing speculation fueled by media reports.
This is not the first time Vijay has addressed the ongoing chatter. In 2022, he appeared on Karan Johar’s talk show where he acknowledged a strong bond with Rashmika forged through their collaborations, but maintained they are “just friends.” Despite their on-screen chemistry in films like “Geetha Govindam” and “Dear Comrade,” and rumors fueled by their personal outings, both actors have consistently refuted talk of a romance.
The latest buzz about their potential engagement likely stemmed from a recent trip to the Maldives, but a source close to the couple squashed the speculation, stating they are happy with their current relationship and not considering an engagement for now.
While acknowledging their fans’ curiosity about their off-screen lives, Vijay and Rashmika remain focused on their individual careers. Vijay, fresh off the success of “Kushi,” is currently filming “Family Star” with Mrunal Thakur. Rashmika, meanwhile, has a slew of exciting projects lined up, including “Mission Majnu” alongside Sidharth Malhotra and “Animal” with Ranbir Kapoor.
Although speculation may continue to swirl, Vijay’s clear denial puts the engagement rumors to rest for now. His dedication to his professional pursuits underscores his commitment to further establishing himself as a leading force in Indian cinema.
