A few weeks back, Bollywood fans were surprised to see pictures of Ranbir Kapoor and Mahira Khan hanging out in New York, In the pictures, the two were spotted smoking cigarettes.The pictures went viral on social media.
At the launch of the trailer of her upcoming Shoaib Mansoor flick Verna,the 32-year-old actress said about whole ‘smoking picture with Ranbir’,when asked about the topic.
The actress replied saying that she has learnt a lot from the incident, I am a very careful person otherwise. People ask me that I do not do this in films, I say I do not want to. Why should I do anything to show the world?” she said.
About meeting Ranbir she said,”It is my personal life and for a boy and a girl to hang out is considered pretty normal. This one incident has taught me a lot,” she said.
Earlier Ranbir has said, “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. Peace and love. PS: Both smoking and hate are injurious to health.”
Mahira Khan, known for her Pakistan serials Humsafar and Shehr-e-Zaat, made her debut in Bollywood with Shah Rukh Khan’s Raees which released on January 25. She married Ali Askari in 2007 and their son, Azlaan, was born in 2009. Mahira and Ali divorced in 2015.
