When the beach photos of Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif‘s Ibiza vacation hit the Internet, Kat was the one who opened up by releasing a media statement on the subject. She seemed to be on her own, though, as Ranbir was in Sri Lanka shooting for Bombay Velvet, and was therefore kept away from the Indian media and all the subsequent backlash. However, since the actor is now back in the city, he gave an interview recently where he talked about the entire situation, saying that he realises there is nothing he can do about it.

Ranbir told TOI:

“Fortunately, I was away in Sri Lanka for the last one-and-a-half months shooting, when all this was happening and I was completely focused on my work and did not see the backlash that was coming. The pictures are out. Today, the paparazzi are not just photographers, everyone has a cell phone with a camera. If they see an actor, they click pictures to show it to their friends or have it on their phones and, as an actor, I don’t see anything wrong with it. Having said that, there is a limit that has been crossed, but there is nothing right or wrong. As an individual, when you’re the subject, you can feel bad about it. But too bad, you are an actor. So it’s a bit of a catch-22 that you wished it did not happen, but, when you think about it, you can’t really do anything about it.”

He will still not openly accept that he’s in a relationship with Katrina – he says that he’d like to protect his personal life as much as possible before it becomes a “reality show” – but he definitely admits that she’s a special person. When asked who he’d give his life for, Katrina’s name is on the list:

“My family, Ayan, Katrina, as she is a very special person in my life, Rohit Dhawan, who I grew up with, and Aisha Divetri, my school friend. And Imtiaz Ali and Anurag Basu, as they add a lot to my life.”

Yesterday, however, there were pictures splashed across a newspaper where you could clearly see that the two had a fight. Both Ranbir and Katrina looked visibly upset in the photos. No idea what happened, but here’s hoping everything’s alright now!
