Actress Uqasha Senrose feels she can be her true self around Ben Amir, an actor some are saying is romantically-linked to Uqasha.

“When I go out with him, I don’t feel like I have to go get ready and look pretty,” the 26-year-old talks about the qualities she sees in Ben. “I can wear a t-shirt and have no make-up on and go out for a meal with him.”

She adds: “When you like someone, of course, you want to impress that person and that can be tiring sometimes. But I don’t have to be like that with him.”

Speculation that romance was brewing between the two started when the actress started uploading photos of her and Ben together on Instagram.

Asked about the status of their relationship, Uqasha, who spoke to the media during an advanced screening of Hantu Kak Limah, says they’re still in the process of getting to know each other.

“I’ve known Ben for a long time actually. I shot a drama, Dan Hati Pun Berkata, with him back in 2013,” she recalls the moment they first met.

The two recently reconnected unexpectedly through her sister Nelydia.

“Nelydia was starring in a drama with Ben, Cinta Tiada Ganti. There was one time I went to fetch her from the set because she didn’t have transport and (that’s how we met again).”
