New Delhi: Delhi girl Bharti Malhotra has finally broken her silence and said the rumours of her dating the bollywood star is completely untrue.
Bharti Malhotra said she “never even followed Ranbir as a fan” and they have never met. Bharti, a make-up artist from west Delhi, attracted the attention of paparazzi after a tabloid claimed that Ranbir had started dating a Delhi girl post his recent breakup with Katrina Kaif.
She added, "Last week, I got a call from a friend who asked me if I was dating Ranbir Kapoor. Like any other girl with no connection to Ranbir or even Bollywood, I thought someone was playing a prank on me. Then I got to know that I was being tagged as 'Ranbir's new Delhi-based girlfriend' by a news channel. I started reading the internet reports and was shocked.”
She further added’ “Earlier, there were reports saying that Ranbir was spotted with some 'mystery girl', and then suddenly, I was suspected to be that 'mystery girl' and my Facebook pictures were used with those reports. I have no clue that started this or how this was reported without anyone trying to reach out to me. I did make a few calls to some publications to have the online reports removed. I told them that I am not dating Ranbir Kapoor, but it was of little help. Some websites removed the link, but I realised that some portals were adding more juicy, false details to the dating rumour. I did not know how to stop that. Everyone started talking about it, but I have had enough of this."
There were reports that Ranbir was introduced to Bharti by his sister Riddhima Kapoor Sahni at a party in Delhi, but Bharti says that she has never met them.
