Mumbai: While Rishi Kapoor makes news for his comments, sparking controversies galore, Ranbir Kapoor makes headlines for his relationships.
And rare occasions bring the two things together, Rishi Kapoor being asked to comment on Ranbir’s relationships.
The rare occasion in question here, is Ranbir’s pictures with Pakistani actress Mahira Khan from New York, going viral now despite it being clicked in June.
Rumours of the two being more than just friends have been doing the rounds again, after their visit in Dubai in March had sparked similar rumours for the first time.
In an interview with Hindustan Times, the senior Kapoor spoke about the pictures, “I only saw them on Twitter, not on Instagram or Facebook, because I am only on Twitter. It’s not that I saw these pictures before or I know anything about this already. You see, Ranbir is a young star, he is unmarried, he’s a bachelor. He can meet anybody whoever he wants to, and if people are going to invade in his privacy, it’s not done. And I can’t say anything about all this because he’s a young man and he has the choice of meeting any girl.”
He added, “How do we know that here’s something more to this picture? He could have met her just outside there. They must have been in a restaurant or a place where they cannot smoke, that’s why they are smoking outside. In US, they have really strict rules that don’t allow smoking in public places. I can’t say anything more because I don’t know anything more than that.”
Regarding the dating rumours between the two actors going on an overdrive, Kapoor said, “If they were dating or seeing each other, wouldn’t people in Mumbai know? If they met in New York in July when Ranbir was shooting for Hirani’s film, wouldn’t we all know by now? Would we not have new pictures here in Mumbai? So, these rumours are only dumb.”
Unlike his controversial tweets, these comments are unlikely to cause any stir this time, hopefully....
