Actor Tanuj Virwani has opened up about his ex-girlfriend Akshara Haasan’s leaked private pictures and what went wrong in their relationship. Talking to Bombay Times, he revealed that they stopped talking completely after the pictures were leaked online in 2018
Giving details about their relationship, Tanuj said, “I had met Aksharaa on an outdoor shoot in Kulu Manali, when she had accompanied her mother, actress Sarikaji.” He added that they became friends and there was a mutual connection. He also said that she is a lovely girl and he really liked her. He stated that they were together for four years, but after a point they realised that it was not working out and decided to mutually part ways without any drama.
Explaining what went wrong in their relationship, Tanuj said, “I think one of the things that went wrong for us was being open about our relationship in public. We had no qualms about discussing our relationship openly. We believed in being honest about it, which eventually backfired. Now, I have realised that we should not talk about our private lives and only let our work speak for us.”
In a past interview to the Times Of India, he had said, “Normally, I don’t like to talk much about the women I am dating especially if they happen to be from my fraternity. This is because I want to be known for my work and not for the women I’m dating.”
He had gone on to say that after a lot of things started coming out in papers, things got awkward between them and they stopped talking. “She may have had her reasons for that. But I was disappointed with her. She did not stand up for me publicly. She didn’t say ‘I did it’ but she didn’t say ‘I didn’t do it’ either. That one statement from her would have made it all go away for me,” Tanuj had shared.
