It is fascinating how not many know that actors Tanuj Virwani (Inside Edge) and Akshara Haasan (Shamitabh) dated for four long years before they parted ways amicably. They, however, continued to remain friends later.
But it was that one unfortunate incident back in 2018 that caused several problems between Virwani and Haasan's families followed by which things ended on a sour note.
Recently, during an interview with ETimes, Virwani opened up on ex-flame Haasan's leaked iages and how the incident caused problems. He said he was upset that Akshara didn't say he had leaked them or give any official statement. He said, “We don't talk to each other anymore. When this nonsense about her leaked pictures happened, it was Akshara who first called me and told me about it. Those pictures were from 2013. She wanted to know if I had any knowledge about this. We kept talking after that trying to reach the bottom of this and find out who had done it. We spoke if she had ever given her phone for repair. I was very upset for her sake more than for myself. No girl should go through this. No family should go through this. It's the worst thing that can happen. I had asked her 'Akshu, do you think I've done this?' She had said, 'No, I don't think you have done it'. I had told her, 'That's all I wanted to hear'.”
He further added on a lot of things came out in papers and how things became awkward between them suddenly followed by them having stopped talking. “A lot of things started coming out in papers, things got awkward between us and we stopped talking. She may have had her reasons for that. But I was disappointed with her. She did not stand up for me publicly. She didn't say 'I did it' but she didn't say 'I didn't do it' either. That one statement from her would have made it all go away for me.” Virwani also revealed that his mother Rati Agnihotri also picked up her phone to call Kamal Haasan and try sorting things out with him. He then revealed that he told his mom that Akshara will give a statement about him if she wants to, but she should not make any phone calls.
Nevertheless, it all is in the past now.
