Actor Rishi Kapoor spoke out on the pictures of Ranbir Kapoor and Mahira Khan that have gone viral and are being circulated on social media since the morning of September 22. The veteran actor said that he had been continuously nudged to comment on the photos but he didn’t think there was actually anything to comment on. Talkin to a news daily, the senior Kapoor further said that Ranbir is a young man and he can chill with whoever he wanted to, though adding that nobody had any right to invade his privacy. However, he maintained that the rumours of the Jagga Jasoos star dating Mahira were baseless and if they were dating, the entire city of Mumbai would have known about it. Here are the statements he made:
On being asked to react on the photos by the media:
I have also seen the picture this morning itself. It doesn’t concern me, so please keep me out. Ask the one who is there in the picture
On whether he knew about this before:
I only saw them on Twitter, not on Instagram or Facebook, because I am only on Twitter. It’s not that I saw these pictures before or I know anything about this already. You see, Ranbir is a young star, he is unmarried, he’s a bachelor. He can meet anybody whoever he wants to, and if people are going to invade his privacy, it’s not done. And I can’t say anything about all this because he’s a young man and he has the choice of meeting any girl.
On whether there’s something more to the photo:
How do we know that there’s something more to this picture? He could have met her just outside there. They must have been in a restaurant or a place where they cannot smoke, that’s why they are smoking outside. In the US, they have really strict rules that don’t allow smoking in public places. I can’t say anything more because I don’t know anything more than that.
On whether he believes that Ranbir and Mahira are dating or not:
If they were dating or seeing each other, wouldn’t people in Mumbai know? If they met in New York in July when Ranbir was shooting for Hirani’s film, wouldn’t we all know by now? Would we not have new pictures here in Mumbai? So, these rumours are only dumb.
