There has been tattle for a while now about Ranbir Kapoor and Mahira Khan being an item. Yesterday, snapshots of the two did the rounds on social media. The pictures were clicked two months ago when Kapoor was shooting for the Sanjay Dutt biopic in New York. She apparently had winged her way to the Big Apple to spend quality time with RK.

Tongues started wagging after they attended an awards ceremony in Dubai in March this year. It is said that Ranbir finds Mahira "very pretty." The two took a shine to each other instantly after being introduced by Mahira's Humsafar co-star Fawad Khan at a party hosted by Karan Johar. At that time, Mahira was shooting for the Shah Rukh Khan-starrer Raees. In May this year, when Ranbir and mother Neetu Kapoor had taken off for London, it was said that the visit was to meet a girl's family for marriage prospects. The girl was supposedly Mahira who had flown in from Pakistan. As this love story can unfold only in foreign climes due to the current political climate, RK is said to have been logging airmiles to meet his rumoured ladylove.

Mahira, who is a single mother, also found herself being trolled and slut-shamed yesterday for her attire, alleged affair with Ranbir besides her lifestyle habits.
