While these pictures might show that these two certainly have some kind of friendship going on, it also pretty much proves that the blind items written about them might be true.
Despite that, some people are more surprised by how Mahira is calmly smoking in these pictures than with the fact that she has been finally spotted with Ranbir.
Make no mistake about it, she might be a Pakistani actress, but she too hailed from the U.S. As you can see in the way she dresses and conducts herself, she just appears Pakistani in Pakistan and India to make her fans happy there because that is her bread and butter.
It’s not really surprising when they all do it. Ali Zafar, Fawad Ali Khan and the others smoke freely. Even Fawad was rumoured to like drinking a lot when he was in India. Ali was rumoured to be having an affair. So, just because they work in Pakistan doesn’t mean they are living their lives like true Muslims.
In the meantime, when these pictures hit the internet, the media got hold of Ranbir’s dad, Rishi Kapoor, and we are surprised he didn’t use his “Kapoors have been doing this for generation” line. Here’s what he had to say:
He can meet anybody whoever he wants to, and if people are going to invade in his privacy, it’s not done. I can’t say anything more because I don’t know anything more than that. If they were dating or seeing each other, wouldn’t people in Mumbai know? These rumours are only dumb.
But what is Rishi Kapoor truly thinking? A Pakistani girl involved with Ranbir? Like if he wants more controversy now. That’s why he didn’t say much more. Let’s wait when he gets super drunk and hits Twitter, like Donald Trump does.
On his part, when these pictures came out and people started trolling Mahira for smoking and wearing a short and backless dress, Ranbir Kapoor stepped in with his statement on all of this because he’s such a gentleman to defend his friend. You know, like he did when he and Katrina Kaif‘s pics in Ibiza hit the web. Wait! No, he didn’t! So, why now? Why did he go the Prince Harry way? Prince Harry, as in the way he defended Meghan Markle and accepted their relationship in his statement for the media. Here’s what Ranbir had to say:
I’ve gotten to know Mahira in a personal capacity over the last few months. She is somebody who I admire and respect, for her achievements and even more for the person she is. It is very unfair the way she is being judged and spoken about. What is also sad is the inequality in judgment just because she is a woman. I request you to stop the negativity and move on with your beautiful god gifted lives. Both smoking and hate are injurious to health.
