Though it is common to hear the most clichéd answer from the actresses, like "we are just good friends", when asked about their relationships or hook-ups, there are quiet a few actresses, who never shied away from admitting their relationships in public.
Though the bold attitude landed some of them in soup, making their private lives, a point of interest for public, the fact remains that they tried to be genuine enough, both on and off cameras.
Here is the list of such actresses, who went public about their love life, even though it broke many of their mad-admirers' hearts.
During Vedam, back in 2010, Anushka admitted in a couple of interviews that she has found her man. However, she never discussed anything about it later, neither did the media ask her, what she was up to.
Samantha never tried to hide her love-break-up with Siddharth back then. Recently, Sam has gone public that she has found her love and is looking forward to settle down. The reports that followed later confirmed that 'the man' was none other than Naga Chaitanya, though we are yet to hear it from the actress.
Hansika almost threw a bomb at her fan boys when she tweeted that she is dating Simbu, though the relationship lasted only for a few months.
The actress, who debuted with Actor Siddharth was then clear with her statements that they were a couple.
Ileana and her Australian boyfriend, Andrew Kneebone's PDA will make us go jealous each day.
Priyamani, who went official about her relationship with Mustufa Raj, a year ago, recently got engaged to him.
From her neck-deep love with Simbu, followed by 'close-to-marriage' relationship with Prabhudeva to her current PDA with Vignesh Shivan, Nayantara was always like a clean piece of paper in the media.
Taapsee and Mahat always were open about their relationship but it was only a short-lived one.
Shraddha Das and Varun Sandesh caught the media eye back then, when they openly confirmed the link up rumors. However, Shraddha has now moved on and Varun is engaged to another actress, Vithika Sheru.
Trisha's love with Varun Manian, engagement and break up all happened really quick, but in public.
Actresses like Nithya Menen, Regina Cassandra though did not talk about their love life, when they were actually 'dating', they of course admitted that they have had their share of bad experiences in life, which finally made them learn some life/love lessons.
So, we see it is no more a myth that, a heroine loses her craze if she is dating a certain someone or engaged to her love. It is good that these fresh crop of actresses have got a knack to balance both the personal and professional lives, by not attributing one's pros and cons to another.
We don'twant to call them gutsy, but 'plain' of course!
