Actors and actresses are perhaps the most followed people all over the world. Whether on social media or in their personal lives, they are continuously watched and judged. This is exactly what happened with Ranbir Kapoor and Mahira Khan. A few months back, the two were spotted smoking and spending some time together outside a hotel in New York.
It hardly took any time for their pictures to go viral on the internet, as if they had committed a crime. Both of them were trolled and shamed big time. Mahira had to bear a bigger chunk of the brunt, for she could be seen wearing revealing clothes and for the fact that she is a woman and a single mother.
Eventually, both Ranbir Kapoor and Mahira Khan spoke about the incident. Apart from them, a number of others spoke about it openly in the media and on social media, including Pakistani actor-singer Ali Zafar, Ranbir Kapoor’s father Rishi Kapoor, and actor Ranveer Singh.
A couple of months later, the gossip seemed to have ended gradually, however, there were speculations about whether the two are in a relationship. Now the rumors surrounding the chapter have surfaced again on the internet as media is conjecturing a split between Mahira and Ranbir.
It is being speculated that the two have parted ways because of their New York pictures going viral. Apparently, the two called off their relationship before the new year but have chose to be cordial to each other. A source close to national daily DNA said:
Their friendship has fizzled out. Ranbir and Mahira will always remain cordial but that’s because of the kind of people they are.
A couple of weeks ago, the actress herself had said in an interview that she was in love at some point but now she is single, which hinted towards her breakup with Ranbir.
