Ranbir Kapoor And Mahira Khan’s Viral Pics. Here’s What Rishi Kapoor Said
Like the rest of the world, actor Rishi Kapoor also saw the viral pictures of his son Ranbir Kapoor chilling with Pakistani actress Mahira Khan in New York on Friday morning. Mr. Kapoor told Hindustan Times: “I only saw them on Twitter, not on Instagram or Facebook, because I am only on Twitter. It’s not that I saw these pictures before or I know anything about this already.” The rumors of Ranbir dating the Raees actress were initiated after they were spotted together at the Global Teacher Prize event in March. “You see, Ranbir is a young star, he is unmarried, he’s a bachelor. He can meet anybody whoever he wants to, and if people are going to invade his privacy, it’s not done. And I can’t say anything about all this because he’s a young man and he has the choice of meeting any girl,” said Rishi Kapoor, when asked if there’s any truth to the rumors.
“How do we know that here’s something more to this picture? He could have met her just outside there. They must have been in a restaurant or a place where they cannot smoke, that’s why they are smoking outside. In the US, they have really strict rules that don’t allow smoking in public places. I can’t say anything more because I don’t know anything more than that,” Rishi Kapoor told Hindustan Times.
The viral pictures of Ranbir Kapoor and Mahira Khan smoking on the streets of New got all sorts of reactions. Some Twitter users were outraged at Mahira for smoking and wearing a short dress while others were less perturbed about it. Here are the mixed reactions:
Ranbir Kapoor was last seen in Jagga Jasoos, which tanked at the box office. Mahira became a household name after her Pakistani show Humsafar aired in India. She later featured as the female lead opposite Shah Rukh Khan in Raees, which released in January.
