Indian actress, Tabu and South Indian megastar, Akkineni Nagarjuna had worked together in a couple of films like Aavida Maa Aavide, Ninne Pelladatha and Sisindri. And, immediately, the chemistry of Tabu and Nagarjuna was a big hit. Their on-screen bond was loved by all, and soon enough, the rumour mills had started buzzing with their dating rumours. However, both the actors have always quashed all those speculations.
In an episode of Karan Johar's chat show, Koffee With Karan, Tabu had opened up about her dating rumours with Akkineni Nagarjuna. In 2007, when the filmmaker had asked the actress to clear the air, Tabu had given a witty and honest reply.
When Karan Johar had asked Tabu in his show Koffee With Karan whether she had moved to Hyderabad for Nagarjuna. The Drishyam actress had explained how important her relationship was with Nagarjuna, and that she had moved as she had built a house for herself there. Tabu had said:
"This Nagarjuna story is very old. It keeps coming back. I always wonder, it feels like the media wants to give this expression that whether I have boyfriends or not, boyfriends come boyfriends go but Nagarjuna remains."
She had further added that she shares a very special bond with Nagarjuna and that she cannot label their relationship like that. Talking about the same, Tabu had shared:
"I don't know what to say about it except that he is one of the closest people in my life. He is one of the most important relationships I have. My relationship with him is very dear to me. Also, that nothing can ever alter or change my relationship with him. I don't have a label for it. I can't do anything about it."
In an old interview with the Times of India, Nagarjuna had revealed his relationship with Tabu, and had said that she will always remain 'a beautiful person' to him. Nagarjuna had stated:
"Yes, Tabu is a fantastic friend of mine. our friendship goes way back, since I was 21 or 22 and she was just 16 years old. That's like almost half a lifetime... About our friendship, whatever said is less. I have nothing to hide about her. When you mention her name, my face lights up... (laughs). it is simple as that. Now, when I say things like that, if you want to read into it, then it's your point of view... To me, she is a beautiful person, and a beautiful friend. She always will be."
Well, apparently, Tabu had always sought stability in life, but she had never got one. Nevertheless, the actress enjoys her singlehood, and even in her 50s, she is as beautiful as ever!
