Some reports state that Ajay had a major crush on Tabu and they even dated for a few years.
Though the actress remains single as of now, she had some interesting affairs with Bollywood stars. Tabu and Sanjay Kapoor started dating during their debut film “Prem” shooting but shortly before the end of shooting, both stopped talking to each other. Tabu and director-producer Sajid Nadiadwala dated each other during their film “Jeet” but ended their relationship due to Sajid’s indecisiveness. Soon, she fell for Akkineni Nagarjuna, who already married his second wife. After dating for 10 years, they fell apart because Tabu realized Nagarjuna won’t marry her.
