Mumbai: Weekend is just round the corner and we’ve got something that could make it even better. The internet woke up to pictures of Ranbir Kapoor and Pakistani actress Mahira Khan, spotted smoking in New York City, and are circulating it across social media emphatically. Mahira wore a short white dress while Ranbir was photographed beside her.
Ranbir and Mahira met at a Dubai event in March and pictures of them trended furiously throughout, following which rumours of them dating were what dominated headlines. Meanwhile, Twitter has arrived at several conclusions. Some users, in fact, trolled Mahira for smoking.
Although Ranbir hasn’t cared to respond, Mahira addressed rumours of her dating the actor with a cryptic post on Instagram – a picture quote which read, “First of all, no. Second of all, no,” and she captioned the image as: “For mostly everything.”
In fact, a source had told Bollywood Life that Mahira, 32, is considerably upset with such reports.
“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,” Bollywood Life quoted a source as saying.
Mahira Khan, known for her Pakistan serials Humsafar and Shehr-e-Zaat, made her debut in Bollywood with Shah Rukh Khan’s Raees which released on January 25. She married Ali Askari in 2007 and their son, Azlaan, was born in 2009. Mahira and Ali divorced in 2015.
Ranbir Kapoor, meanwhile, is busy filming the Sanjay Dutt biopic, which is being directed by Rajkumar Hirani. He was last seen in Anurag Basu’s Jagga Jasoos with Katrina Kaif.
