It has been rumoured that Bollywood hunk Ranbir Kapoor and Pakistani beauty Mahira Khan are dating. Mahira, who returned to her home country after artists from Pakistan were banned from working in the Indian entertainment industry. She couldn’t even stay back to promote her Bollywood debut Raees along with Shah Rukh Khan. However, the actor still managed to make headlines in both the countries, courtesy her alleged relationship Ranbir.
The camaraderie between the two actors came to the public eye at the Global Teacher Prize gala which took place in March in Dubai, where both Mahira and Ranbir walked the red carpet together and looked cordial with each other in front of the cameras.
But both Ranbir and Mahira refuted it. Since quite a long time rumours of their relationship are going but these two clearly denied it. But now pictures of the alleged couple has again hit the internet and this time it’s straight from the New York City (NYC).
The Bollywood star and Pakistani heartthrob were spotted by paparazzi on an NYC street, smoking cigarettes. Mahira was wearing a backless white dress, while Ranbir, who recently starred in Jagga Jasoos, was dressed simply, in a T-shirt.
Though it cannot be said when the photos were clicked, many are assuming that the two actors caught up with each other in July when Ranbir went to New York for filming the Dutt biopic and Mahira was there for work too.
Last time we saw them together was when a video of Mahira pleading with Ranbir for something went viral on social media. Many assumed that what happened between Mahira and Ranbir was a sweet tiff of a romantic relationship. Later Mahira put all the rumours to rest as she explained that they were just catching up and discussing work.
Mahira and Ranbir were reportedly introduced to each other by a common friend in the industry and since then have been getting along well.
Mahira is mother to a three-year-old boy, Azlaan. She was married to Ali Askari from 2007 to 2015. Before Raees, Mahira was a household name because of TV shows like Humsafar.
Ranbir Kapoor, meanwhile, was just seen on the big screen in Anurag Basu’s “Jagga Jasoos”, in which he was paired opposite ex-girlfriend Katrina Kaif.
