Besides gaining attention for his brawny look for Sanjay Dutt's biopic, Ranbir Kapoor often hits headlines for his rumoured relationships. Ranbir is a heartthrob of Bollywood and his dating rumours are fodder for gossipmongers. Recently, his photographs with Pakistani actress Mahira Khan sent internet into meltdown. The duo was snapped smoking on the streets of New York outside a restaurant. Soon after the photographs began doing the rounds on social media, trollers began slamming the actors for smoking in public place. While Mahira is being slut-shamed by Pakistani fans, the pictures have also added fuel to their dating rumours. While the Jagga Jasoos actor is not present on any social media platforms, his father and veteran actor Rishi Kapoor has come to his defence. In an interview to HT, the actor said Ranbir is a bachelor and has choice of meeting any girl.
Rishi Kapoor said, ''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 in 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.'' While Ranbir is seen in his hulk avatar for the biopic, Mahira is looking sensational in a white backless piece. The pictures which were taken in July have surfaced now only to provide social media users a field day.

The actor who is known for his Twitter controversies can't understand why is there a furore over smoking in public. ''How do we know that here’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 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,'' he said. Clearing the air about their dating rumours, the veteran actor said that such reports are dumb. ''If they were dating or seeing each other, wouldn’t people in Mumbai know?'' he asks.
Ranbir is currently shooting for Rajkummar Hirani's biographical drama on Sanjay Dutt. He will also be seen in Ayan Mukherji's romantic fantasy film Dragon opposite Alia Bhatt. On the other hand, Pakistani beauty Mahira was last seen in Raees opposite Shah Rukh Khan.
