Actor-singer Shruti Haasan issued a statement on her social media profiles on Wednesday, December 27, clarifying that she has not gotten married and requested people to “calm down”. Rumours of Shruti Haasan marrying her long term boyfriend Santanu Hazarika began to float after social media celebrity ‘Orry’, also known as Orhan Awatramani addressed the latter as “Shruti’s husband” on an AMA (ask me anything) session on Reddit.
On her Instagram stories, Shruti said that she would not hide her marriage since she has been open about everything. The actor said, “So…I’m not married. For someone who’s been open about every single thing, why would I hide this? Lol. So people who don’t know me at all, please calm down.”
In an earlier interview to the Hindustan Times, Shruti Haasan had said that she does not plan on getting married any time soon. The actor said, “The word marriage scares me a lot. There is so much to it and I don’t really want to think about it. I am happy being with him [her boyfriend], doing good work in collaboration with him and having a great time together. Isn’t it better than most marriages?”
Shruti Haasan was last seen in Saalar: Part 1 Ceasefire starring alongside Prabhas, Prithiviraj, Sriya Reddy, and others. The film was directed by Neel Prashanth and was released on December 22.
