What’s going on between Ranbir Kapoor and Mahira?
Ranbir Kapoor has taken the adage of ‘Love thy neighbor’ a tad bit seriously. So what’s cooking between the two?
Has Ranbir Kapoor found love again? This time the beautiful lady in whom the Jagga Jasoos star seems to be taking more than a passing interest is a Pakistani actress Mahira Khan, who made her Bollywood debut with Shah Rukh Khan in Raees.
We hear that this beautiful cross-border friendship is now supposedly moving to the next level. A friend of Ranbir Kapoor describes the growing fondness between the two actors as work in progress.
“Ranbir is very fond of this lady (Mahira). He speaks about her very warmly and affectionately, and proudly shows her pictures on his phone to close friends. This is building into something more than just a casual friendship,” says the friend.
Apparently, Ranbir Kapoor met Mahira at an international event, and they hit it off instantly. Mahira, who is a single mother has also reciprocated to Ranbir’s warmth. The two have a mutual friend, the hunk Fawad Khan, who worked with Ranbir Kapoor in Ae Dil Hai Mushkil. Whether this growing affection will lead to something substantial, only time will tell.
Given her clarification on the photo-sharing site, seems like Mahira is in no mood to indulge baseless rumors about her and Ranbir Kapoor.
BollywoodLife quoted a source as saying, “Mahira is mighty pissed with the reports. Just because she and Ranbir met for a couple of times and are still in touch with each other through common friends doesn’t mean they are dating!”
Mahira is a mother to a three-year-old boy, Azlaan. She was married to Ali Askari from 2007 to 2015. Before Raees, Mahira was a household name because of TV shows like Humsafar.
Ranbir Kapoor, meanwhile, was just seen on the big screen in Anurag Basu’s Jagga Jasoos, in which he was paired opposite ex-girlfriend, Katrina Kaif.
