It wasn’t too long ago when fans woke up to pictures of Ranbir Kapoor and Mahira Khan from their secret meet-up in New York City.
The viral clicks didn’t just stir up a controversy for the Pakistani actress but also had rumour mongers guessing if there was something more to their relationship than what met the eye.
While Ranbir stayed mum on the subject and Mahira was quoted stating that they had "got wind from it," recently actor Ranveer Singh was asked for his thoughts on the same.
In an interview with Filmfare magazine, the actor shared his thoughts on viral pictures by drawing parallels from his own experiences.
He stated, “I can simply talk about my own experience. There are times when I’m at a certain situation with certain people and I don’t want those private moments to be caught by anyone. But, you can’t help it. You got to take the bad with the good. I get to do what I love to do and I make a lot of money. But some things are irritating and you’ve got to take them in your stride. It’s a crazy world.”
The ‘Padmavati’ star also went on to share some food for thought for Mahira, who braved a wave of hate and criticism after the pictures went viral.
Ranveer said, “Everyone has their own interpretation. Everyone has their own set of values. Everyone has an opinion. You can hear them, but you needn’t subscribe to them. At the end of the day, one should just live and let live and focus on more important things. Mahira is a great performer and an entertainer. One should ideally just engage with her at just that level.”
Ranveer next will be seen playing the antagonist Sultan Alauddin Khilji in Padmavati.
The Sanjay Leela Bhansali directorial which also stars Deepika Padukone and Shahid Kapoor, the magnum opus is set to hit theatres on 1 December 2017.
