“I am happy that I have him in my life."
Actress and Bigg Boss star Mahira Sharma has opened up about her relationship with actor Paras Chhabra.
Sharma and Chhabra became close during their stint in the Bigg Boss house, and have maintained a close bond ever since.
However, Mahira Sharma is reluctant to make their relationship official.
In a recent interview, Sharma said that Chhabra has become a part of her family.
According to her, he has been her strongest support since her stint in Bigg Boss 13.
She referred to Paras Chhabra as her “buddy” and expressed her gratitude for having him in her life.
Mahira Sharma said:
“There is a reason why people are not able to link me with anyone other than Paras.
“I am happy that I have him in my life.
“Koi paras jaisa nahi hai (There is no one like Paras), but I don’t want to make anything official right now.
“If I ever think of a partner, Paras fits the bill.”
In a separate interview with Times of India from April 2021, Mahira Sharma’s ‘buddy’ Paras Chhabra revealed that the pair are more than friends.
However, he was also unwilling to make their relationship official.
According to Chhabra, he believes that putting a name on a relationship causes one or both of the partners to become controlling.
Speaking about his connection with Mahira Sharma, Paras Chhabra said:
“Mahira and I are more than friends. We have become family. It (is not) necessary always to give a tag or put a tag on a relationship.
“I feel when you give a name or put a tag on a relationship, you become controlling.
“Right now, Mahira and I are in a stage of our career where we both are growing. We are enjoying this phase.”
“If tomorrow we decide to be in a relationship, we might start controlling each other and interfering in career-related matters.
“I might tell her ‘don’t do this’, ‘I don’t like’ or she might tell me.
“So, we both have a better understanding now and we are very supportive of each other’s careers.
“We don’t want to rush and enter a relationship and then ruin things.”
Further on in the interview, Paras Chhabra went on to say that, despite their relationship not being official, he does love Mahira Sharma.
He also said that his past relationships have taught him what creates negativity in a relationship, such as becoming controlling as a result of commitment.
