Time and again there have been speculations made about Varun Dhawan‘s love life. He is seeing Natasha Dalal and the whole world knows that now, especially after the couple was seen entering hand- in- hand at Shahid Kapoor’s birthday bash last week. However, Varun HATES it when his personal life takes the centre stage instead of his work. In an interview t Mid- Day, Varun was quoted saying, “The day I settle down, I will announce it to the world. I am proud of the special woman in my life and the world should know about her. It’s sad that for many actors, information around their personal life takes their career ahead. I don’t want to be in the news for dating someone. It isn’t motivating for me as an actor. I can understand if one reports a dramatic situation – like, Varun gets punched by his girlfriend. I will be amused too. But in this age, your work is all that makes or breaks him.” This isn’t the first time when Varun has opened up about his girlfriend. On Koffee With Karan 5 too, he dropped major hints about the “special woman” in his life and we all knew that he was talking about Natasha.

If reports are anything to go by, Varun and Natasha have been seeing each other for over a decade now! Yep, they are childhood lovers. In fact, their families too are well aware of their love affair. In one of his interviews, Varun had even mentioned that the actor has a very exciting love life as he had said, “Why am I not speaking out about my private life? Because there is too much to speak about. It will overtake my professional life. I am telling you, my private life is very exciting. I know if I reveal something about my private life, then people will not be interested in my work.”
