For all those who thought Mahira Khan’s chopped-off role in Raees was the end of her Bollywood connections, here’s a news flash: The Pakistani diva has struck a bond with none other than Ranbir Kapoor.
It all started when a few months ago, Mahira Khan and Ranbir Kapoor met attended an event in Dubai. A short video of their interaction became a hot debate on both sides of the border. But according to Indian media, the two have struck up a close friendship after that conversation.
A close source has confirmed,
“They have stayed in touch ever since,”
And that’s not all. The two have been pretty honest and vocal about appreciating each other. A few days back, Ranbir Kapoor was asked to list the names of actresses he finds pretty, to which Ranbir had said, “Mahira Khan from Pakistan is very pretty.”
The Humsafar actor, too, has praised Ranbir Kapoor’s acting as brilliant.
“Among the younger lot, I would say Ranbir Kapoor. He is a brilliant actor.”
Ever since the political tension between two neighbouring countries aggravated, Pakistani actors have been banned working in India. In fact, Fawad Khan and Mahira had to face the brunt majorly as they were awaiting their respective releases- Ae Dil Hai Mushkil and Raees during that time.
We SO hope Ranbir Kapoor and Mahira Khan pair up for one of Karan Johar’s epic romance sage!
