While everyone is still wondering when and how this news story took shape, let’s break it down. Being famous personalities in the acting world, and having a mutual friend – Fawad Khan, it is no surprise that the two actors were familiar with each other. While Ranbir and Fawad acted together in Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, Mahira and Fawad have been friends since they shot Humsafar together.
Mahira was once asked as to whom she preferred from Bollywood and her answer was Ranbir Kapoor. On the other hand, during one of his film’s promotions, the Jagga Jasoos actor was asked in a rapid-fire-round, about women he found beautiful, Ranbir picked the Humsafar beauty Mahira Khan along with Gal Gadot.
The two seemed to have developed a friendship in the recent international event Global Teacher Prize, held in Dubai this year. Reportedly, Mahira and Ranbir immediately hit it off and in the brief moment they were spotted together made headlines, dubbed as proof of something more than a friendship brewing between the two actors.
Ranbir has a history of relationships with Bollywood starlets like Katrina Kaif and Deepika Padukone but we never really found out what went wrong between the couples before they parted ways.
The Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani actor has never shied from publicly speaking about his relationships in the past. When asked in an exclusive interview about his recent dating rumours with DNA, the actor confessed that he is not seeing anyone and is enjoying his time being single.
