Taapsee reportedly met Mathias after she went to watch one of his matches. Earlier speaking about Mathias, the actress told ETimes, “I didn’t want to date someone from the industry for this very reason. I want to keep my personal and professional lives separate. I always share a picture with those who matter to me on their birthdays and did the same for Mathias, who is a part of my inner circle.”
