Are they or aren’t they dating? The story has been whispered about in the recent past but was always denied. It was a few months ago that a video of what seemed like an argument between Ranbir Kapoor and Pakistani actress Mahira Khan while they were in Dubai for an event, went viral. But while that particular bit of news created headlines, it appears there was more to this couple than what met the eye. And now there is pictorial evidence.
In a series of pictures that appeared on social media and several fan pages, Ranbir Kapoor and Mahira Khan have been spotted together, hanging out and having fun. It is being said that these snaps, evidently clicked without them knowing it, are from New York. Ranbir is sporting his Dutt look (he is currently shooting for the Sanjay Dutt biopic) while Mahira looks gorgeous in a bold white dress. The two are seen smoking and chilling. While there is nothing amiss in the picture and the stars are merely seen to be taking a smoke break (Ranbir looks patently tired in some of the images and is even yawning in one of them), how they emerged on the net suddenly is still a mystery.
Needless to say, the pictures have created a frenzy. Here are just some of the tweets.
Last year a tabloid reported that Ranbir and Mahira had met and gotten along really well. They are reported to have kept in touch ever since. While some reports even linked them together, there was no evidence to suggest the same. Is this just friendship or is there something more to it? While they have spoken highly of each other in the past, Ranbir had said categorically a few months ago in an interview that he was single and was enjoying this phase of life.
Whatever be the facts of the matter, fans have started reacting strongly. Unfortunately, Mahira has started receiving a lot of negative comments, more for her smoking and wearing a revealing dress than her being seen with Ranbir.
In this day and age of social media, it is getting increasingly difficult for celebrities to keep their friendships and relationships under wraps! So far there has been no reaction from either of the stars to the furore but hopefully, this Indo-Pak friendship will not have to pay a price to social media snooping!
Meanwhile here is the video link of the 'fight' that first brought this friendship into the open.
