Mumbai: Actress Disha Patani has laughed off rumours of dating actor Tiger Shroff, saying she is an anti-social person who does not get affected by the such talks about her personal life.
The actress featured with the “Baaghi” star in a music video earlier this year. Gossip mills have been abuzz for a long time that the duo are dating each other.
When asked if the spotlight on her personal life bothers her, Disha told PTI, “No. I think I am very anti-social. I don’t have newspapers in my house. I have a news application which only gives me important news, no Bollywood. So even if there is some report about me, I don’t know.”
“I don’t care. It doesn’t bother me at all. I think everybody’s making money. It is something that people like to read. It is superficial but people want to read about somebody’s life,” she said.
The 21-year-old actress, however, does not feel bitter about this and feels fortunate that there are people wanting to know more about her.
“I think I am lucky enough to be getting this chance also that people want to know about me. I don’t want to complain over it. I am in the happy-ok-zone. I am fine because somebody’s opinion can’t become my reality.”
Disha says even Tiger is not bothered by such reports as he focuses more on making his craft better.
“We both are very similar and that is the reason why we are good friends. I don’t think he reads newspapers… He is so focused. He wakes up early, goes for gymnastic, whole day till 7-8’o clock he is working on himself.
“He has this agenda in life, ‘Everyday I want to become better than what I was yesterday.’ He is a different guy, so, I don’t think it affects him at all.”
Post their music video “Befikra”, there were several reports that Disha will team up with Tiger for his upcoming film “Munna Michael”. The actress, however, denied signing any film with the actor.
Disha is currently awaiting her Bollywood debut in “MS Dhoni: The Untold Story”. She stars in the film as the romantic interest of Sushant Singh Rajput, who plays the titular role.
Directed by Neeraj Pandey, the film is scheduled to release on September 30.
