Bollywood heartthrob Ranbir Kapoor has finally opened up about his engagement report. He denied getting engaged to his ladylove Katrina Kaif. Months back during New Year, rumor buzzed that Ranbir and Katrina got engaged in London in the attendance of Kat’s family but the ‘Barfi’ actor categorically denied the news.
In an interview to Times of India, when asked about his engagement to Katrina, Ranbir said, “No, I am not engaged. Engagement is to tell the world that right now we are promised to get married. I have not reached that place in my life. I really wished that tabloids, magazines and news channels stop making conjectures about that as it spoils the spontaneity of it when it finally happens.”
He further adds he tries to keep his personal life guarded. “I am trying to guard my personal life and live a life that is apart from my movie life and out of public eye. If I have to get engaged, I can’t hide that. I want to have a family, have children. So, when I get engaged, I will certainly announce it,” he quips.
When asked how he cope with speculated media news, the actor replied, “Today, with social media, with internet, even if a random internet website writes an article that Ranbir has urinated on the side of a street, everyone picks it up and the audience tends to believe it. What do you do? If I start contradicting each story then I am falling prey to them and I will then have to contradict everything as what I don’t contradict, they will assume to be true. So, it’s a tricky spot. I don’t want to sound like a cry baby, but audiences are making strong perceptions about you based on what they read and unfortunately, that’s not about your work. So, it’s a catch 22. But, I do hope my work speaks 10,000 times more than a factually incorrect article written about me”.
Currently, Ranbir and Katrina is shooting for Anurag Basu’s ‘Jagga Jasoos’.
