Well, it can’t really be called picture leaks when most likely someone from the industry took and released these pictures. If you recall when the Ibiza pictures were dropped by Stardust magazine, the editor was trying hard to explain how he got these pictures. He said a paparazzi guy in Ibiza spotted Katrina Kaif and Ranbir Kapoor and thought they looked like stars, so he decided to click their pictures.
How in the world does this happen? The odds of this happening? The papz at the beach and see a couple with mismatched swimsuits and go, “They must be famous ‘coz they don’t have enough money to buy matching swimsuits!” We call bullcrap on that story and this time too, the story seems to be the same.
What’s common between both these leaks is how both of these ladies ended up being affected by it. Katrina wrote an open letter on how her privacy was invaded and Mahira was taken by an alien. No, we are joking. No idea where she is since she disappeared from social media as well.
Now rumours are coming out that the leak and the backlash have both affected her to the point that she has become depressed. Obviously, she must be scared as to what can happen to her once she stepped back in Pakistan. It’s hard to feel sorry for her when she should have known something like this would happen. Don’t say she couldn’t have known, it’s impossible. Months before, she had a private moment that went on between her and Ranbir in Dubai and someone was secretly recording them, so what would make her think that being out there in public, in front of everyone, would be private?
Even us, normal beings, always have this “what would others say” thought in our head, so why didn’t she think of this beforehand? Sure, she might say people don’t recognise her in New York, but what about Ranbir? Is he not recognisable? They are celebrities and should be mindful of their surroundings if they want to do something that according to them is not right. She can still own up to her situation and defend herself, it’s not as if she got caught smoking by her parents. She’s a grown woman with a child!
As for her thoughts on these supposedly leaked pictures, someone from Mahira’s side had this to say:
Mahira has faced severe criticism for her pictures with Ranbir Kapoor, on social media, much more than Ranbir, because she is a woman. Some feel the pictures were leaked out deliberately by a Bollywood celeb. While her close friends like celebrity makeup artist Adnan Ansari and director Mira Sethi, who is directing her in Saat Din, have supported her, buzz is Mahira has been quite depressed since the pics came out.
The pictures were originally taken and shared online in July, so why the need to reshare it now and make it a big issue? Let’s take a wild guess and name Ayan as the leaker, since he was the one who was also with Kat and Ranbir in Ibiza. We’re just saying, not accusing! The signs are there, he ousted Kat out of Ranbir’s life and now, Mahira. Mom Neetu must be proud that at least someone is watching out for her dearest son.
This sounds so much like Leonardo DiCaprio’s life!
