The Jagga Jasoos hero has steered clear of all talks about his split and ex, but suddenly he's out there discussing his love life and personal affairs...
Ranbir Kapoor is not the usual Bollywood hero. The actor has always shied away from the paparazzi, sometimes even rubbed them the wrong way with inappropriate gestures and taking away the media's camera. He's not even someone who would entertain personal questions in an interview or event. So we were pleasantly surprised to see the young Kapoor lad dole out quotable quotes about his ex-girlfriend Katrina Kaif and their break-up in an interview to CNN IBN entertainment editor Rajeev Masand. Now we aren't sure if Ranbir's tell-all interview is an image makeover plan or an honest confession. We bet you'd ask us why do we say so?
Well, firstly the timing of the interview is questionable. Think of it, actors never give interviews unless it is for a film or brand promotion or then when they want to consciously make a point. Ranbir Kapoor is not even a media savvy actor. His film Jagga Jasoos has been pushed to next year. Karan Johar's Ae Dil Hai Mushkil will release only on October 28 and this interview would be way too early to be considered as a promotional chat. So this confessional chat just seems ill timed and out of place.
#Kat's outta town!
Katrina Kaif was here in Mumbai until the first week of this month. The actress took off for the US along with Aditya Roy Kapor, Karan Johar and the rest of Dream Team stars for their show. RK Jr comes out in the open about his separation from girlfriend when she's out in the US for the Dream Team tour. Obviously it's going to be a one-sided chat with nobody to respond, especially with Katrina in a different timezone busy with her rehearsals and performances.
#Too sweet to be true
Ranbir's choice of words are so sweet that it almost makes Katrina's Kaif's subtle suggestions about her ex-boyfriend and break-up a lie! The actor said things like - "Whatever I said, it is misconstrued. My personal life is dear to me and my relationship with Katrina, it is or was very special. After my parents, Katrina is the most inspirational entity in my live. I hold her very dear." And if you remember Katrina's Vogue interview the actress had opened up for the first time and revealed that she "plays it safe when it involves another person who is not in your control." The actress had said, "Which means, you are going to be speaking for yourself and for that other person, constantly making changes and updates, you know?"

Katrina had also sworn never to mix personal and professional lives, she added, "I think I no longer make friends in a way that I am too attached or dependent on people. This is the film industry, this is a place of work and sometimes we mix the personal and the professional too closely."
Ranbir on the other hand spoke about being really HURT and even went on to say what really went wrong in their relationship. He said, "I cannot sit and explain my heart or my feelings. When my relationship is concerned, it was punctured by a lot of things- baseless rumours, reports, point of views, perceptions, etc. It hurt but I don’t want to talk about." Clearly it is surprising to see Ranbir get into this justification mode.

Anybody who has met Ranbir or interacted with him will vouch for the fact that he's a charmer. The actor has a way with words and he leaves you mesmerised with his genuineness. The fact that the actor has spoken so highly about his ex-lover just takes down some accusations about his Casanova image. Not to forget that Kapoor lad is often referred to as a heart breaker and so with this interview he might just manage to silence his detractors and portray a nice picture of himself. It also will cool off all allegations about his mother, Neetu Kapoor's involvement in his break up with Katrina.
Well, looks like Ranbir's this interview will break the internet and this time for all the right reasons. May be his hit track record will also be back after this smashing chat. What do you think?
