Bollywood actor Varun Dhawan and girlfriend fashion designer Natasha Dalal have recently grabbed headlines. They are expected to tie the knot on January 24, as confirmed by the actor’s uncle Anil Dhawan. 

The two appear to be childhood friends, who only began dating after several years of knowing each other.

 In an interview with Hindustan Times, Natasha once said, “Varun and I were in school together. We stayed friends until we were in our mid-20s and then, I remember, we started dating just before I moved away. It was around then that, I think, we realized we were more than just good friends.”

For many years, the couple kept their love life private and away from the paparazzi’s view. Soon, however, they started making public appearances together, talking about their relationship in interviews and making it official on social media.

For instance, on Neha Dhupia’s audio chat show ‘No Filter Neha’, Varun Dhawan confessed that he was in love, adding that he wanted privacy and hence would not reveal his girlfriend’s name. 

In an episode of talk show Koffee with Karan (Season 6), the actor talked about his relationship with Natasha. He said, “I am dating her and now we are a pair. I plan to wed her.”

In 2019, the actor also shared a video from Natasha’s birthday celebration, while in March 2019, Natasha attended a ceremony in Akash Ambani and Shloka Mehta’s marriage festivities in Mumbai. 

In 2020, Dhawan opened up about their relationship even further. On Kareena Kapoor’s radio show ‘What Women Want’, the actor described the moment when he fell in love with Natasha-after basketball practice on an ordinary day. “She rejected me some 3-4 times. But I didn’t give up hope,” he added.
