Mahira Khan has revealed that she felt "violated" when somebody surreptitiously clicked her pictures with Ranbir Kapoor when they were taking a smoke break together in New York. Speaking about the controversy on an episode of BBC World News' HARDTalk, she said, "That was the first time in my entire career that I was caught up in a so-called controversy and it was strange because there were so many things in that. One, obviously you feel violated, you are in a personal downtime moment and someone has just photographed you."
Mahira was not only said to be dating Ranbir but was also trolled for wearing a short dress and smoking cigarette, to which she said, "Obviously there was an uproar, because here I was, someone who is extremely loved in Pakistan, and they sort of keep me up on this pedestal you know, they treat me with a lot of love and a lot of respect. And there are certain things I didn't realise that they don't want to see me do. At that point yes, it was crazy honestly because it lasted for a while... It was crazy, it was ridiculous."
We’re glad everyone has finally moved past that episode!
