Ranbir Kapoor‘s break up with Katrina Kaif was the first big news of 2016. While the former couple maintained silence on the matter, not too long ago, a new set of reports about Ranbir started to rock the internet. They stated that apparently, Ranbir had moved on and was dating a Delhi-based makeup artist Bharti Malhotra. However, according to her interview in TOI, all these reports are baseless.
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. 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.
