Taapsee Pannu talked about her relationship and said, “There’s someone in my life and my family knows about it”
Taapsee Pannu, who is one of the most talented actresses in Bollywood, has never spoken about her love life in public.
But, a few days ago, reports suggested that she is dating a badminton player from Denmark Mathias Boe. He was a gold medalist in the 2015 European Games and he had also won a silver medal at the 2012 Summer Olympics.
Both, Taapsee and Mathias met in 2014 during the inaugural function of a badminton tournament in India. Mathias was part of a team while Taapsee was the brand ambassador of another team.
Last year, in an interview with Pinkvilla, Shagun ( Taapsee's younger sister) revealed how the two met and took the credit as she was the one who introduced them. “Now, she may have got lucky. Taapsee must thank me because it was because of me that she met him,” said Shagun.
In an interview, Taapsee talked about her love life, “I don’t want to hide anything from anyone. I’m very proud to accept the presence of someone in my life. But yes, at the same time, I wouldn’t only talk about it for the headlines because then it takes away my credibility as an actor and what I have achieved in all these years by working hard. That I can’t afford to do.”
She continued, “There’s someone in my life and my family knows about it. It’s very important for me that my family – including my sister and my parents – they like the person who I’m with. Else it won’t work for me. I remember joking about it and telling someone, “Agar mummy papa nahi maane, toh mujhe nahi lagta kuch ho sakta hai (If my parents don’t agree, I don’t think this relationship has a future).”
If you scroll down Mathias’ timeline on his Instagram account, you will see him chilling with Taapsee’s sister Shagun Pannu at a restaurant with other friends.
Taapsee once said, “I have kissed a lot of frogs before meeting my prince.” When asked about her plans to get married, she said, “I will get married only when I want to have babies.”
