It has been friendly vibes all around as ex-lovers Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif have gone about promoting their forthcoming film, Jagga Jasoos, over the last few weeks. They’ve done appearances together, gone live on Facebook, exchanged banter on social media and posed for the cameras for the sake of their director Anurag Basu’s long-delayed film. According to a report inMid Day, however, the stars were only being professionals in a bid to drum up interest in the film.
And, when asked if she would sign another film with Ranbir, Katrina replied: “It’s very difficult. People now have proof that he is a very trying and testing person. Ranbir has also gestured [to me] to not work on a film together. It will never happen again.” According to the report, Ranbir refused to respond to the same question citing time constraints.
Clearly, both stars have moved on with their lives. They have several films on hand. The Mid-Day report quotes a director who is close to the two stars, who says: “Katrina and Ranbir’s dates are locked for the next few years. She has ‘Tiger Zinda Hai’ [alongside Salman Khan] and ‘Thugs of Hindostan’, with Aamir [Khan]. Ranbir is busy with the Sanjay Dutt biopic, and ‘Dragon’ [Ayan Mukerji’s superhero drama].”
Ranbir and Kat, who have worked together in Ajab Prem Ki Gazab Kahani and Raajneeti before and who in parted ways in 2016 just before they began shooting for Jagga Jasoos, could have kept the possibility of working together alive. But both seem adamant to stay away from the other professionally now.
