If Kangana Ranaut has taken a break from the ugly spat with Hrithik Roshan, Ranbir Kapoor is nursing his broken heart after splitting with longtime girlfriend Katrina Kaif. But the two actors recently found themselves in an awkward situation when the rumours about their link-up started doing the rounds. So much so, that a hastag #nowranbirkangana started trending on Twitter recently.
The rumours haven’t gone down too well with Ranbir. According to a report in DNA, the new single in town is in a state of shock over the rumours.
A source close to the Tamasha actor was quoted as telling the daily, “He is wondering where these rumours originated as there is no truth to it. Ranbir, who is shooting for Jagga Jasoos in Mumbai, since he has come back from Morocco, is in a state of shock over the spate of stories that have sprung out of nowhere in the last few months.”
Be it his break-up with Katrina or his link-up with a Delhi girl, the 33-year-old actor has always maintained silence and never issued clarifications. But this time around Ranbir has had enough and won’t take things lying down.
“He is upset that people are taking advantage of the fact that he doesn’t issue clarifications. There is no truth in the stories of Ranbir and Kangana’s affair, yet in a very systematic manner this is being spread in media. He knows who is behind these rumours and if this continues, he is considering issuing a strong denial this time.”
Recently, there were rumours that Ranbir and Katrina have become close after the two went through their turbulent relationships. But with Ranbir’s strong denial, it seems the buzz will fizzle out soon.
On the work front, Ranbir will be next seen in Anurag Basu’s Jagga Jasoos, while Kangana has recently wrapped up the shooting of Vishal Bhardwaj’s period drama Rangoon.
