Taapsee Pannu has vehemently denied rumours emanating in certain sections of the press claiming that she has started ‘living together’ with Manoj Manchu, upcoming actor and son of Telugu superstarMohanbabu. She maintains that she shares nothing more than a ‘bond of friendship’ with Manoj Manchu.
Readers might recall that Taapsee debuted as an actress with Vetrimaran’s Aadukalam which fetched for its hero Dhanush his first-ever national award for ‘best actor’. She starred in one more film in Tamil opposite Jeeva and then shifted to Tollywood where she is one of the busiest actresses, landing up roles regularly opposite top heroes.
She has recently been signed up to play a prominent role in actor Ajith’s upcoming untitled film directed by Vishnuvardhan. The Telugu press was full of reports that Taapsee had fallen ‘madly in love’ with Manoj Manchu and that both of them had started ‘living together’ without getting married formally. The duo has been spotted attending many functions together in recent times, it is reported.
However, Taapsee brushes aside all those reports. “I have come across rumours linking me and Manoj and am aware as to who spreads these rumours. For a fat, I’m not in love with Manoj. Manoj lives with his family while I reside at my residence at Madhapur. Why can’t two persons in the entertainment industry be just friends? It’s a very common trend in Hollywood!” says Taapsee without losing her cool.
