Reams of newsprint, on-air time and web space have been devoted in the past few days on Bollywood couple Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif's love story.

And the stories of Ran-Kat's on and off romance continuous to interest Bollywood fans.

Now we are informed by reliable sources close to both the love-birds that they have indeed turned angry birds without reconciliation.

The PR agencies connected with both the actors and the film 'Jagga Jasoos' which is also produced by Anurag Basu and Ranbir has also been working overtime to quell stories about the two splitting, but in vain.

The news is out and people connected to the film industry specially those who have a connection to 'Jagga Jasoos' have been upset because JJ is the second film pairing both these actors after 'Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahaani' at a time when everyone speaks about Rs 100 crore collections for films.

In an interview earlier, Ranbir did mention that Katrina could be one person he wouldn’t mind giving his life for. And this has been said, despite him not ever acknowledging that he was in love with her and Katrina saying that he had never popped the question to her.

The two partied in Ibiza and bikini pics made the rounds. This saw reaction from Ranbir’s family and Katrina hurled an angry statement to the media.

The two were then in New York for the New Year, but it seems that Adam and Eve both bit on the wrong side of the Big Apple.

Eve wants to settle down in life after a whirlwind career in Bollywood, while Ranbir still is playing a boy who is wanting to grow up and not in a mood to marry and settle down.,

“Ranbir wants to settle down and get married, but not at this juncture. He is serious about Katrina and doesn’t want to marry now and Katrina wants to and that has been the story so far. A scooter commercial that Ranbir Kapoor endorses also echoes a similar sentiment about Ranbir not being serious about the relationship. And this has been the dividing factor,” says a source.

The success party of 'Dhoom 3' saw Ranbir and Katrina burning petrol differently in their own cars.

But then being professionals they were spotted shooting seamlessly for the film 'Jagga Jasoos'.

We are informed that the two want to be hardcore professionals and work together without an issue. It hasn’t been easy and it won’t be so in future when the actors go around to promoting the film.

And we hope that the distributors and makers of the film take solace from the fact that Ranbir and Deepiak delivered their biggest hit 'Yeh Jawaani hai Deewani' only after their split and Kareena and Shahid too delivered a 'Jab We Met' only after they called it quit!

But we will still keep our eyes and ears open for the next batch of gossips involving Ranbir and Katrina.
