Lisa Haydon breaks her silence on relationship with Varun Dhawan

Lisa Haydon, who stole a million hearts as the flamboyant Vijaylakshmi in Vikas Bahl’s ‘Queen’, has clarified that she is NOT in a relationship with Varun Dhawan. Grapevine had it that the dusky beauty and the ‘Main Tera Hero’ star were an item. Haydon took to Twitter to put all speculations to rest. She tweeted: I Am Single! @Varun_dvn is NOT engaged. Enough misinterpreting. Over. Please?

Lisa is currently busy promoting her film ‘The Shaukeens’, a remake of Hrishikesh Mukherjee’s film ‘Shaukeen’. The film stars Akshay Kumar, Anupam Kher, Annu Kapoor and Piyush Mishra.

The film is slated to hit the silverscreen on November 7, 2014.

Lisa Haydon: I don't want to be termed as hot

Model-turned-actress Lisa Haydon, who does not wish to be tagged as "hot", says her performance in Queen has helped people to pay attention to her acting acumen.

"Before Queen, people perceived me (just) as a model. I worked very hard to prove myself as a good actor. I needed the right opportunity, and now I feel people have started taking me seriously as an actress and have started paying attention to my talent," Lisa said here.

She feels there has been an image change for her after Queen.

"I don't want to be termed as 'hot'. It was getting offensive after a point. Who wants to be hot," she asked while breaking into guffaws.

However, Lisa feels that after Queen, in which she played Vijayalakshmi - an independent, fun-loving and modern girl who befriends Kangana Ranaut's character - she is "getting stuck with the 'bohemian free-spirit' image".

She admits it "is so much better than hot", but is clear that she doesn't want to get "stuck with any image".

The actress's new film is The Shaukeens.

Talking about the movie and her character, she said, "In my opinion, my The Shaukeens character Ahana is not hot. Vijayalakshmi (from 'Queen') is hotter than Ahana though she does not do anything to be hot - she burps, she snores, and has an 'I don't give a damn' attitude which appeals to people. Ahana, on the other hand, is a very innocent and naive girl."

Directed by Abhishek Sharma, The Shaukeens features Annu Kapoor, Anupam Kher and Piyush Mishra.

"The three men have never met a girl like her and they think she is a streetsmart girl because she is very open about everything. The men think she likes them, but for her, they are paternal figures," Lisa said.

Is Varun Dhawan Dating Lisa Haydon?


Looks like Varun Dhawan is Bollywood's new love-struck Romeo. The actor, who has acted in films like Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhaniya and Main Tera Hero, is now making headlines for his proximity to Queen actress Lisa Haydon. If rumours are to be believed, the two are reportedly dating each other.

Though the actors have not worked together or made any public appearance so far except one event, industry insiders are speculating that the two are more than just friends.

Lisa, who was dating entrepreneur Karan Bhojwani since 2005, announced her engagement in 2013 but called it off earlier this year as the couple needed to 'figure things out'.

In his two-year-old Bollywood career Varun was only linked with Alia, whom he insistently described as one of his closest friends. Even Alia refuted the rumours.

On the fourth season of celebrity talk show Koffee With Karan, Varun had said that he was dating someone but remained ambiguous about the relationship saying the girl's family doesn't want him to talk about it just yet.

Lisa will be next seen in The Shaukeens starring Akshay kumar, Annu Kapoor, Anupam Kher and Piyush Mishra. Varun, on the other hand, will be seen in his first ever negative role in Badlapur which also features Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Huma Qureshi and Yami Gautam.
