Bollywood heartthrob Ranbir Kapoor is on a high with his recent release ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil‘ minting at the box-office. If his professional life has taken off not much can be said about his personal life. Ever since the ‘Barfi’ actor parted way from his girlfriend Katrina Kaif he has been linked with a number of beauties.
Recently it was rumoured that he is dating Delhi-based Bharti Malhotra. The lady in question was rumoured to close to his sister Riddhimma Kapoor. However the Kapoor scion has finally decided to come clear on the matter. Recently in the talk show ‘#NoFilterNeha’, hosted by Neha Dhupia, Ranbir gave a candid answer, “Six months back they (media) linked me with this girl called Bharti Malhotra I have no idea about, I have never met…They wrote an article about that and went to interview her… she was seeing someone and said ‘how can you link me up with him when I am not even his fan, that is a completely baseless story’.”
When Bharti Malhotra was questioned about her alleged affair with Ranbir Kapoor, she had refuted the rumours firmly and said, “I did not know how to address this before. Now it is important for me to come out and clear the confusion to put a stop to all these reports. Last week, I got a call from a friend who asked me if I am dating Ranbir Kapoor. Like any other girl with no connection to Ranbir or Bollywood, I thought someone was playing a prank on me. Then I got to know that I was being tagged as Ranbir’s new Delhi-based girlfriend by a news channel. I was suspected to be that mystery girl and my Facebook pictures were used with those reports. I have no clue who started this or how it was reported without anyone trying to reach out to me. I did make a few calls to some publications to get the online reports removed. I told them that I am not dating Ranbir Kapoor, but it was of little help. Some websites removed it but I realised that some portals were adding false details to the dating rumours. I did not know how to stop that. Everyone started talking about it, but I have had enough of this.”
Hope this clears the matter once for all. On the work front, Ranbir Kapoor will next be seen in ‘Jagga Jasoos’ co-starring his ex Katrina Kaif.
Akshay Kumar is one such man in Bollywood who has always been on his toes to help the people in need. Especially, the army officers! Patriotism has deep roots...
