You had a lot of questions regarding the truth about Ranbir and Katrina’s relationship, so I dug deep and got you ALL the dish, masala maar ke :)
A lot has been said (and written) about Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif’s on-again-off-again relationship. But here, for the first time, we tell you what really happened behind the scenes! How these two started dating, broke up and… are now dating again!
Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif met each other for the first time at a film awards function, even before they became friends. At that time, Katrina was with Salman Khan and Ranbir was just getting to know Deepika Padukone. While Kat was serious about Salman, she never quite committed to that relationship. She was a regular feature at Galaxy (that’s the Khan household) and got pretty friendly with Salman’s sister Arpita Khan.
However things soured over a period of time with Katrina’s growing frustration towards the way the media was beginning to perceive her “relationship” with Salman. She wasn’t his girlfriend, but at the same time, she wasn’t just a casual friend, and therein lay the dilemma! Salman and Kat’s lifestyles were also drastically different. While Salman likes to drink and party with friends till 4am *cue song, chaar baj gaye magar party abhi baaki hai*, she prefers to go to bed early and lead a more disciplined life.
It all began when Raj Kumar Santoshi approached Katrina and Ranbir for Ajab Prem Ki Gajab Kahani. The two had a series of readings and screen tests before the actual casting. They instantly got along like a house on fire! RK would constantly text Kat, tease her, and be his playful self. The film was a huge hit their pairing was appreciated by the masses. *Obviously, Salman wasn’t crazy about this – especially since he and Ranbir were already on rocky ground, since they had previously had a small showdown at a nightclub during Ranbir’s Sawariya days (apparently Ranbir had seen a girl and commented that she looked a lot like Aishwarya Rai, and Salman had taken offense to that).
The truth is, Ranbir and Deepika split because of Katrina. Deepika caught Katrina visiting Ranbir in New York over New Years when he was shooting with Priyanka Chopra for Anjaana Anjaani. Deepika knew all along that Kat wasn’t going to miss an opportunity to be with Ranbir. They were more than just platonic friends and Deepika was fed up of constantly being lied to. Remember the time Dippy wanted to see Kat’s passport? Maybe it wasn’t to check her age but her immigration stamps!
(Here’s the whole episode if you got involved!)
There was a time when she even intercepted pictures of Kat blowing kisses to RK on sets of Rajneeti, on his phone. Eventually, she reached her wits end, and after giving him multiple chances he ironically dumped her for Kat. Remember we broke the story of them kissing in first class?!
Ranbir and Katrina, despite the numerous denials and fights, are very much together today and often spotted leaving each others houses. In fact, at private parties (and when he’s with his friend and mentor Karan Johar) RK often talks about how much he loves Katrina. His mom Neetu Singh is also quite fond of Kat and they get along famously. (Katrina Kapoor… hmm, that kinda works doesn’t it?!) Kat and Salman are no longer together, but he’s still fond of her. However, his close associates like his bodyguards Shera and Nadeem have stopped calling her bhabhi.
Neither I nor my spies can say how long this Kat and mouse (*lol* sorry I couldn’t resist) relationship will last, but as of now they are very serious! Truly one Ajab Prem Ki Gajab Kahani :) I for one think they look quite cute together! Who’s with me? xoxo
