Talking about her much rumoured relationship with her first Bollywood costar and Shahid Kapoor’s brother Ishaan Khatter, Malavika stated, “There was this rumour that Ishaan Khatter and I were dating. It’s absolutely untrue because like in the film we did together – Beyond The Clouds in which I play his sister – in real life, too, we have this sibling vibe. So this was very strange to read.”
In a recent, Malavika talked about her all time crush from the film industry but looks like it no one from the Indian film industry has won the actress’ heart yet. Malavika apparently has a huge crush on the La La Land actor Ryan Gosling. In an interview with The Times of India, Malavika was asked if invisibility was your superpower, who would she like to stalk? “Ryan Gosling; I’ve a crush on him,” she said.
She further talked about her Kollywood debut as a lead and more about Master. “Master was like a picnic, a college group project that we all had fun doing. The whole team is young and full of energy. We would run around and have a lot of fun, but at the same time, were very passionate about what we were doing,” she recalled, “I was ecstatic when Master happened. I mean, who doesn’t like to work with Vijay sir? He was initially very quiet on the set, but he was sweet and approachable. He would not go to the caravan in between shots. Soon, after we all had spent time together, we saw this super fun side of his. He would crack jokes and pull our legs. We became friends soon. I have nothing but respect and admiration for him. The first day of my shoot, it was a combination shot with him and I had some difficult scenes. I was creeping out and also had first-day jitters. But he was encouraging and said I was doing great. His energy is so good. You will never hear him say anything negative about anyone. He is the poster boy of positivity. Lokesh is open to inputs, your ideas. So, the whole process of shooting becomes interactive. He is damn good at what he does. I really look forward to working with him again.”
On the professional front, Malavika will be seen playing the lead in Vijay’s next titled Master also starring Vijay Sethupathi, Gauri Kishan, and Andrea in pivotal roles.
