Ranbir Kapoor and Mahira Khan had a tough time recently when their pictures, enjoying a smoke on the streets of London went viral. The gorgeous Pakistani actress received flak for her short white dress, smoking a cigarette being a girl and chilling with an Indian actor, among other things she was scrutinized for. Ranbir on the other hand received lesser flak but, strongly stood up for the actress.
Now, a month after what happened, Ranveer Singh was asked about his thoughts on the havoc that those leaked images created. Supporting the duo, he said, “I can only speak about my own experience. There are times when I’m at a certain place with certain people and I don’t want those private moments to be captured by anyone. But, you can’t help it. You got to take the bad with the good. I get to do what I love to do and I make a lot of money. But some things are irritating and you’ve got to take them in your stride. It’s a crazy world.”
He further spoke about the trouble Mahira faced saying, “Everyone has their own interpretation. Everyone has their own set of values. Everyone has an opinion. You can hear them but you needn’t subscribe to them. At the end of the day, one should just live and let live and focus on more important things. Mahira is a great performer and an entertainer. One should ideally just engage with her at just that level.”
Well said Ranveer! What were your thoughts on the Ranbir-Mahira controversy?
