New Delhi: Living the life of a celebrity is not an easy one—as it comes with a price tag! For A-listed actors, rumours or gossips might be a part and parcel of their big journey, however not for common people who get affected when their names get falsely linked with a star.
Here's exactly what happened with Bharti Malhotra, the Delhi-based make-up artiste whose name got dragged as Ranbir Kapoor's 'Dilliwali girlfriend'. In an interview with TOI, Bharti finally broke her silence and revealed the truth.
Bharti has slammed all such reports claiming her to be dating Ranbir. She even said that there is absolutely no link between her and the actor; neither has she met his sister Riddhima, as was reported by some.
Bharti was quoted as saying, “Last week, I got a call from a friend who asked me if I was dating Ranbir Kapoor. Like any other girl with no connection to Ranbir or even Bollywood, I thought someone was playing a prank on me. Then I got to know that I was being tagged as 'Ranbir's new Delhi-based girlfriend' by a news channel," she says. "I started reading the internet reports and was shocked. Earlier, there were reports saying that Ranbir was spotted with some 'mystery girl', and then suddenly, I was suspected to be that 'mystery girl' and my Facebook pictures were used with those reports. I have no clue who started this or how this was reported without anyone trying to reach out to me. I did make a few calls to some publications to have the online reports removed. I told them that I am not dating Ranbir Kapoor, but it was of little help. Some websites removed the link, but I realised that some portals were adding more juicy, false details to the dating rumour. I did not know how to stop that. Everyone started talking about it, but I have had enough of this.”
