"They are both living in the same house, same room."
Rumours that Rashmika Mandanna and Vijay Deverakonda are dating continue to spread on social media.
And now, there are claims that the pair are living together.
This came after Rashmika posted a video of herself thanking fans for their birthday wishes.
In the video, she said: “I just wanted to thank you so much. I love you, I will always love you. Let’s be happy.”
Although the video seemed innocent, digital media company South Digital Media claimed that she and the Liger actor were in a serious relationship.
The company claimed that Rashmika and Vijay are now living together.
A screenshot of Rashmika was tweeted alongside another image of Vijay in a room. South Digital Media said it was the same room, with the lightbulb-style lighting hanging from the wooden-effect ceiling.
It was also claimed that the actress was wearing Vijay’s favourite ring.
South Digital Media’s tweet stated that it was “proven” that they are dating and that fans can expect an official announcement.
The tweet added: “They are both living in the same house, same room. Surely we can hear great news.”
The tweet led to some users believing that it was confirmation while others were not convinced.
It even attracted Rashmika’s attention and she quickly shut down the claims with a witty response.
Much to the delight of her fans, Rashmika replied:
“Aiyoooo.. don’t overthink it babu…”
Aiyoooo.. don’t over think it babu.. ??????

Rashmika also said the ring was a gift from a friend, not Vijay.
She also denied the claims that they were living together, explaining that they have their own homes and live separately.
Rumours that Rashmika Mandanna and Vijay Deverakonda are dating have been circulating for a while now.
Despite stating that they are just friends, fans believe the stars are in a relationship.
Both have been spotted out together and going on holiday.
On New Year’s Eve, Rashmika hosted an Instagram live session. But fans seemed to notice Vijay’s voice in the background, fuelling rumours.
Rashmika previously spoke about the interest surrounding her personal life. She said:
“We all became actors to be noticed so you can’t say ‘talk about only our work’.
“It’s people’s perspective. We are public figures. We don’t have control over what you think about us. We can’t control your minds.
“But at the same time, it’s the love and the curiosity that you have around you that keeps you going.
“If people weren’t curious about you, nobody would talk about you. People talk because you are relatable today.
“So, whether it’s positive, negative, at the end of the day, at least, you spoke about me.”
