Bollywood's most talked-about couple Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif have reportedly ended their six-year long relationship.
While rumours have been rife for quite some time that there have been tensions in Ranbir and Katrina's relation, now Pinkvilla has confirmed that the two have parted their ways.
"The two have officially parted ways. Three days back, Ranbir moved out of their Carter Road flat with all his luggage. Katrina soon flew off to Delhi to promote Fitoor. This is it for them. They have tried making it work for far too long but things weren't falling in place for them," a source told Pinkvilla.
The source further added, "Both of them have made peace with the fact that the relationship is not headed anywhere and their differences can't be resolved. For the last few months, there has been a lot of tension between them. Ranbir's proximity with Deepika during the promotions of Tamasha didn't go down well with Katrina. And she made no pretenses in vehemently putting it across to the media. In an interview with GQ, she'd said that she hopes Ranbir's choices change as he evolves. He has never been the kind of person who can stand being bound in a relationship like that."
Ranbir-Katrina had put up an united front during Christmas to silence rumours of trouble. So what led to this break-up?
The insecurities that Katrina had in the relationship is evident. The reserved, reticent actress' explosive GQ interview is testimony of that.
She had said, "My greatest fear is that if and when I get married and I am standing at the altar or the mandap, he (the groom) may not love me completely. That he may not know his mind well enough to be making those commitments. The anticipation of heartbreak is my only fear.”
Ranbir's Kapoor ex-girlfriend Deepika Padukone had nothing to do with the break-up. But Katrina was not happy with the two ex-lovers working together.
She was quoted saying, "I can't enforce my will on the people in my life. Their choices are their own. I may not be happy with them but I hope that as they mature or as they evolve, their choices will change!"
But Deepika is committed to making her relationship with Ranveer Singh work.
Not close to Ranbir's parent
During her interview with GQ Katrina almost sounded unhappy for not being close enough to Ranbir's parents.
She said, "I am not as close to Ranbir's family as I would like. But I would like to hang out with them more. Family would be a defining factor when I make the decision to marry. I am a very responsive person. So, if my partner gives me what I need, I can be the best girlfriend you can wish for."
It was out in the open that Ranbir's parents did not approve of Katrina. His mother Neetu Kapoor was unhappy with Ranbir moving in with Katrina. At the Kapoor's Christmas brunch when Katrina accompanied Ranbir, Neetu decided to skip the party.
From the very beginning the two actors were cagey about going public. Also, Ranbir's non-commitment on wedding plans was a big reason for the split. The actor would develop cold feet each time this subject came up.
Katrina's GQ interview again revealed that she feared of being cheated on
The actor stated, "See men and women, they're different. Women give birth to babies, men don't. We can't say 'oh equality on all levels, we're all the same. No, our biological needs and bodies are different. Men have been the hunters and the philanderers.
"Being with an actor has its own set of issues, but the basic differences arise because men are men. Cheaters will cheat anywhere," she added.
Ranbir moves out
Recently, Ranbir moved out of their apartment. He was seen leaving the house with all his belongings.
But all these break-up news doesn't sound that convincing. There could be more to the whole story then what meets the eye.
Ranbir and Katrina will have to complete their upcoming film 'Jagga Jasoos' and a scope of a reconciliation can't be dismissed.
