You must have read about the news of Ranbir Kapoor-Katrina Kaif break-off, unless of course you live under a rock. For the past couple of days, news portals have been busy churning out stories about the split of Bollywood’s most gorgeous-looking actors who have been dating for the past six years. If rumours are to be believed, there is not one single reason responsible for the breakup; there are many!
Initially, reports of Deepika Padukone and Ranbir’s closeness surfaced around the time the duo was promoting their film Tamasha. It was evident that the ex-lovers were close, and they made no attempt to hide it. Why should they? After all, it raises curiosity and audience flock to theatres for their film. When I watched the film, I was bowled over by the chemistry of the lead pair. It was crackling! And the song ‘Agar tum saath ho’ was so beautifully done that it seemed Deepika was pining for her lost love Ranbir in real. I am sure the tall beauty must have experienced worse when her beau decided to leave her and rush to Katrina’s arms. Last year, the Piku actress confessed that she battled with depression.
However, the chemistry of Ranbir and Deepika in Tamasha was too obvious to miss, and Katrnia must have sensed it. But the poor girl was helpless. When someone asked Katrina how she felt about the exes working together (for Tamasha), she said, “I can’t enforce my will on the people in my life. Their choices are their own. I may not be happy with them but I hope that as they mature, their choices will change.”
That was too honest an answer to ignore. Katrina is always politically-correct, and it’s very rare that the actress talks about her personal life in open. To say such a thing, it must have distressed her aplenty.
The news of the separation has been bobbing up and down for some months now, with various reports confirming, and then negating, the split. Around the time Tamasha was released, there were “confirmed” reports that Ranbir and Katrina were breaking up. Then there was the news of Katrina attending the Christmas lunch hosted by Shashi Kapoor. Everyone thought she was inducted into the Kapoor family, and rumours of an impending marriage started to fly. But again, it was revealed that Neetu Kapoor, Ranbir’s mother, and his sister Riddhima gave the luncheon a miss. Neetu Kapoor had put up a family picture on Instagram, but not before cropping out Katrina. The matriarch was certainly not very happy about her son’s choice, and made no bones about it.
Recently, Rishi Kapoor cleared his stance on his future daughter-in-law, “A newspaper reported that she (Katrina) has started calling me, ‘Papa.’ Rubbish, she wouldn’t dare to take such liberties with me…. I’m not the sort to duck questions.”
Only a few days back, there was a paparazzi picture of Katrina and Ranbir kissing on the balcony of the penthouse where they moved in together last year. This had raised hopes of fans that the love birds are very much together. But now, with the confirmed news that Ranbir is moving back to his own flat, there is no denying the fact that the split is official!
While this could be great news for Deepika Padukone ’s fans, who never liked Katrina for obvious reasons, the news doesn’t bode well for Deepika Padukone ’s current lover Ranveer Singh. The Tamasha actress has never minced her words about her feelings for her ex. A lonely Ranbir might need a shoulder to cry on, and Deepika Padukone would be more than happy to offer one!
