Disha knows there is a price celebs need to pay and has no qualms about being linked to Tiger Image: Facebook
Disha Patani may be just a film old, but she has been a newsmaker for quite sometime now, mostly due to her alleged relationship with Tiger Shroff. From cosy lunches to dinner dates, Disha and Tiger are almost inseparable. Recently however, Tiger denied being in a relationship with Disha on Koffee with Karan and just like the Heropanti actor, Disha too refused to spill the beans regarding her relationship status. And before you pan the girl for mouthing cliches like "we are good friends", here's why she won't talk about Tiger, for the fear of being trolled.
Yes, you heard us right. In a recent interview to Mid-Day, the 24-year-old said that female actors in Bollywood are often badmouthed when their relationships go for a toss. "There is a big risk of being slut-shamed in case relationships don't work. We are actors; we can never be free." Taking the safe route, she said, "Tiger and I are close. We are good friends."
Trying to make her stand clearer, Disha said that there's nothing wrong if two people go out for dinner or chill together. However, she also admitted that she does understand the perils of stardom and thus has no qualms in being linked with Tiger. "I understand gossip is part of the profession", she said.
Disha and Tiger's alleged affair made headlines post A Flying Jatt's release, when the duo were rumoured to have gone for a vacation. Though the two didn't share pictures of themselves, their getaway pictures, especially the locations did look eerily similar. While reports said that Tiger's mum Ayesha wasn't happy with the proceedings, senior Shroff was reportedly quite cool with their equation.
Well, whether in a relationship or not, we would love to see the two share the screen space soon.
