"It was Crazy and Extremely Ridiculous": Mahira Khan on the Ranbir Kapoor Controversy
The actress revisits one of the most bitter episodes of her life!
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!
