When Bollywood heartthrob Hrithik Roshan announced his separation with wife Sussanne the gossip columns worked over time.
From Hrithik’s alleged fling with Barbara Mori to Sussanne’s friendship with Arjun Rampal - all angles were explored.
In all this, actress Katrina Kaif has been one of the people closest to him. The actress reached out to her 'Bang Bang' co-star to comfort him, and often sent him messages and small gifts to lift up his spirit.
When the actor underwent surgery Katrina paid him a visit; post his split she tried to cheer him up with messages and inspirational books.
People close to Katrina said her concern for Hrithik has been misunderstood.
Such rumours of actors while filming movie together are becoming more common. They share a professional rapport and have been good friends since their first film ‘Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara’.
Katrina is in a committed relationship with Ranbir Kapoor though the two have not gone 'officially' public (their Ibiza beach pictures bearing witness).
What could have given fodder to the 'Hrithik affair' rumour are false news of a rift between Ranbir and Katrina.
There have been reports that the 'Jagga Jasoos' actors are not in talking terms after a lovers-tiff in New York.
Like every other couple, Ranbir and Katrina also have differences.
Reportedly, Katrina was having issues with the commitment-phobic Kapoor boy. Though he has been loyal to her over the past few years, he is still non-committal and resisting the 'I Do' factor.
Insecurities ought to crop up but they have now resolved their issues.
Time Of India reports: "The couple has sorted out their 'differences', including Katrina's grouse about Ranbir developing cold feet after promising her marriage. Katrina will now wait until Ranbir is ready to tie the knot. The day he tells her he wants to get married, she will. Things are fine between them.
So, right now Ranbir and Katrina are very much together and the Hrithik Roshan-Katrina Kaif rumours have no truth to it.
