Actress Shruti Haasan recently revealed details about her relationship with illustrator boyfriend Santanu Hazarika. Speaking on Mandira Bedi’s show ‘The Love Laugh Live Show’, Shruti said the two developed a strong connection through art and other similar interests.
When Mandira asked her about Santanu and their relationship, Shruti revealed that Santanu had done a piece of art for one of their common friends but they had never really met each other properly. The actor said, “I think we crossed paths a couple of times and we completely just walked past each other.” Shruti said she and Hazarika started chatting online and had a lot of common interests like their love for art, Swedish metal band Meshuggah and graphic novels. She said, “Everything basically that I love.”
When asked if she wanted to hide the relationship with Shantanu, Shruti said, “I hid a lot in the past. I have been very particular. I have been like, ‘Oh my God, I am totally single’ for the longest time. Because people were like ‘you have to appear that way, you have to appear desirable, available’. And one day I was like, ‘For whom? For what?’ I also felt like it was disrespectful to my partner– to hide it. It may or may not work out. We don’t know but I think it’s important to respect your environment and the people in it.
