Rishi Kapoor is no saint. His words are not “filtered”. He speaks the way he sees it. In the past one week, he has abused a woman who he thinks insulted his family and lashed out at Anurag Basu (again) for making ‘Jagga Jasoos’. His statements have a natural tendency to create animosity. But when it comes to talking about Ranbir’s controversies, he takes a mature way.
Recently, the pictures of Mahira Khan and Ranbir Kapoor bonding over a smoke in New York city stormed the internet. People foolishly questioned Mahira’s character as she is a divorced mom and further, rumors of the two dating started doing the rounds.
Rishi Kapoor, in an interview with a daily newspaper, rubbished all rumors and told people not to invade their piracy. He said,
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. 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 in 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.
He said that if they were dating each other, everybody in Mumbai would have known about it.
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. IUS, 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. If they were dating or seeing each other, wouldn’t people in Mumbai know? If they met in New York in July when Ranbir was shooting for Hirani’s film, wouldn’t we all know by now? Would we not have new pictures here in Mumbai? So, these rumours are only dumb.
