Mahira Khan had her big Bollywood debut opposite Shah Rukh Khan in Raees early this year. But Indian fans have been missing the actor after she returned to her home country following the ban on Pakistani artistes from working in Indian entertainment industry. However, the Pakistani beauty has ensured to hog headlines on both sides of the border in many ways. But here, we aren’t referring to her adorable Instagram posts with her son Azlaan or the awards she wins every now and then. This time, she is making news for her alleged relationship with B-town’s most eligible bachelor – Ranbir Kapoor.
The camaraderie between the two actors came to the public eye at the Global Teacher Prize gala which took place in March in Dubai, where both Mahira and Ranbir walked the red carpet together and looked cordial with each other in front of the cameras. Seeing their chemistry, many rumours about them dating did the rounds but the two actors maintained that they are happily single. But now once again the fans of Mahira and Ranbir are hyperventilating thinking that the two stars are not ‘just good friends’. And it is the photos of them together from New York City which has left the grapevine abuzz with their dating rumours yet again.
In many photos which are going viral, Ranbir and Mahira are seen smoking on the streets of New York. While Ranbir is seen sporting the Dutt look for Rajkumar Hirani’s biopic on Sanjay Dutt, Mahira is wearing a white dress and is looking chic in the photos. Though it cannot be said when the photos were clicked, many are assuming that the two actors caught up with each other in July when Ranbir went to New York for filming the Dutt biopic and Mahira was there for work too.
Last time we saw them together was when a video of Mahira pleading with Ranbir for something went viral on social media. Many assumed that what happened between Mahira and Ranbir was a sweet tiff of a romantic relationship. Later Mahira put all the rumours to rest as she explained that they were just catching up and discussing work. Mahira and Ranbir were reportedly introduced to each other by a common friend in the industry and since then have been getting along well.
