It might just be over for two of B-town’s hottest couples — Salman Khan, Katrina Kaif and Ranbir Kapoor, Deepika Padukone. Deepika, who, till last year couldn’t “wait to be Mrs Kapoor” has reportedly had enough of Ranbir’s proximity with his latest co-star Katrina Kaif.
A source says, “Deepika had been feeling insecure since long. She even spent two weeks on the sets of Rajneeti in Bhopal.” However, everyone noticed how the couple kept a distance at designer Shabina Khan’s birthday party and that they haven’t been very vocal about their relationship in the past few months.
At the recently concluded fashion week, where Ranbir and Katrina walked the ramp for designer Rohit Bal, the chemistry between the duo was crackling backstage. A source present backstage says, “They were inseparable, held hands each other in front of people. We really thought there is something on.” Katrina was even spotted bonding with Ranbir’s father Rishi Kapoor at Subhash Ghai’s party recently.
Meanwhile, reports of Katrina and Ranbir raving about each other in the media are only making matters worse. While Katrina says that “Ranbir and I make a nice-looking couple”, Ranbir has called his Ajab Prem Ki Gazab Kahani co-star “inspiring” and “India’s biggest actress”. So much so that Deepika has been telling her friends that Katrina is spreading stories about problems between Ranbir and her.
A source from the sets of Rajneeti says, “Deepika has been demanding commitment, and Ranbir felt claustrophobic. She was insecure not just because of Katrina but even Ranbir’s other female friends. She kept a tab on his friends and who he was hanging out with.
When Deepika visited Ranbir in Bhopal, the latter had told a unit member, 'I'm not in the frame of mind to settle down.'" This has also apparently led to trouble in the Salman-Katrina paradise. Though sources maintain that their relationship has always been very 'open' and a split is unlikely, Salman is still disturbed by rumours of Katrina’s growing friendship with Ranbir.
