Mumbai: While Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone are painting Udaipur red, Ranbir’s good friend and former girlfriend Katrina Kaif is maintaining a stoic silence about the two’s growing fondness for each other.
After a major fallout with Ranbir, (owing to a certain Ms. Fakhri) Katrina had gone her way and concentrated on her work. She even got back on talking terms with her former beau Salman Khan and went on to sign Yash Raj’s next with Khan. Only last year, at an awards show, Ranbir went up to Kat and it seemed that the two were again back to talking terms.
Just when the rumours of Kat and Ranbir giving their relationship another shot started floating, Ranbir and Deepika’s camaraderie on various award shows and later on the sets of Ayan Mukherjee’s ‘Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani’ kind of hinted at their growing fondness. So much so that it led to Deepika’s break-up with her then boyfriend, Sidharth Mallya.
So is Katrina insecure about the new friendship, considering she has herself rekindled her friendship with Salman Khan and is busy shooting with him? Sources close to the actress deny so.
“This is typical of Ranbir. He tends to get very attached to his co-stars while shooting. During Rockstar he was so enamoured of Nargis Fakhri that he went around predicting to close friends that she would sweep all the awards. After the film`s release he lost interest in her. During Bachna Ae Haseeno he came close to Deepika. But then the inevitable happened,” says Kat’s friend to a tabloid.
While some suggest that Katrina is very secure about her relation with Ranbir as of now, some say she has moved on and made peace with Ranbir’s ways. “Katrina is in a very happy space now. She does not care about the mating and dating game anymore,” defends her friend.
Looks like an interesting triangular love story is in the making in B-town!
