K-Town bachelors we’d love to hook up with
Vishal: The tall, dark and handsome hunk of Kollywood has got busier ever since his team, the Pandavar Ani (the Pandavas) won the phenomenal Nadigar Sangam elections last year. Vishal floated his own production banner, Vishal Film Factory, in 2012 and has been charting out several films ever since. Although the 38-year-old has been linked up with his co-stars a number of times, the one that has been discussed extensively has been with Varalaxmi Sarathkumar (aka Varu, daughter of R Sarath Kumar). Vishal and Varu maintain that they are childhood friends. The good news is that Vishal has not only ruled out the possibility of marriage, he has denied the existence of a ‘love-life’ altogether. There’s hope yet for all the single ladies.
STR (Simbu): Simbu has survived several link-ups with prominent actresses, including Trisha, Nayanthara, Aishwaryaa Rajinikanth (before she eventually married Dhanush) and Hansika. Simbu and Hansika have gone on record saying they dated each other for over a year. However, the two of them broke up in 2014, for reasons best known to them and right now Simbu is single. The current buzz doing the rounds is that Simbu has 'agreed to an arranged marriage' but on the condition that he should like the girl. Let's wait and watch!
Siddharth: Girls dote on the 36-year-old who started his career with Boys in 2003. Not that Siddharth has been spared from his share of link-ups in the industry – with Shruti Haasan, Soha Ali Khan and Samantha - but he is single now. The actor-producer was married once, but is divorced now. Though Siddharth and Samantha (also popularly known as Sid and Sam) never talked of a relationship, they were seen at many filmy events together. They would even flirt on Twitter. The relationship is rumoured to have lasted for over two-and-a-half years.
Rana Daggubati: The dashing Rana, 31, and actress Trisha have been rumoured to have been in a relationship until they allegedly broke up post SIIMA 2014. Post that, Trisha got engaged to entrepreneur-producer Varun Manian, but they broke up. Rana, meanwhile, is busy in Tollywood, Kollywood and Bollywood. This year, he's working on Bangalore Naatkal (remake of Anjali Menon's Bangalore Days in Tamil), Gautham Menon's bilingual (Tamil and Telugu) Achcham Enbadhu Madamaiyada, SS Rajamouli's magnum opus, Baahubali - The Conclusion and the Hindi-Telugu bilingual Ghazi.
Prabhas: The Baahubali star seems to have become a household name after the magnum opus released. Prabhas, 36, who is currently working on Baahubali - The Conclusion, apparently promised his parents on Sankranti this year that he would tie the knot by the end of the year.
Atharvaa: Atharvaa Murali has had a busy year in 2015. Though Chandi Veeran did not quite make news, his second release of last year, Eetti won positive reviews. The 26-year-old is the son of the late actor Murali. Atharvaa started his film career in 2010 with Baana Kathadi with Samantha as co-star.
Aadhi: Aadhi of Mirugam and Eeram fame, in an interview to a magazine in 2014 had claimed that his parents, his mom in particular, has been on the lookout for a suitable girl for him. Aadhi has a solo release in 2015, Yagavarayinum Naa Kaakka which was directed by his elder brother, Sathya Prabhas. Currently working on a Telugu film with Allu Arjun, the 33-year-old is quite likely to tie the knot this year.
Ashwin Kakamanu: Remember this actor who played a cop in Thala Ajith starrer Mankatha? The 28-year-old Ashwin Kakamanu with his good-boy looks has his share of female fans too. Ashwin, who of late has been playing the lead role in a few Tamil films (such as Megha) is known for his supporting roles, the latest being Thala Ajith starrer Vedalam. Ashwin has a few solo releases lined up, Zero, Thiri and Thollaikatchi.
