Love, Actually… As Of Now, At least!
Like the Anushka Sharma-Virat Kohli alleged romance. Not a day passes without some new update on how inseparable they are, how often he spends time at her Versova pad, how it was Ranveer Singh who’d introduced them and so on and so gush. In fact, the regular precision with which these news morsels appear, it’s starting to take on the suggestion of a ‘plant’, if you ask cynical ol’ me…
Nothing shady about the Ranveer-Deepika romance for sure, not after the candid pictures that revealed untold truths about the status of their relationship… Those utterly natural shots of the two of them as they chatted over a meal in a simple restaurant, clicked by a fan on their couple holiday together in New Year, bringing in Deepika’s birthday… Wowee!
Then there’s Amrita Rao of all unlikely souls, who’s probably made news of the romantic kind for the first time with her romance with RJ Anmol. And Varun Dhawan who’s back in a relationship. And Sonakshi and Shahid who’re supposedly discovering deeper feelings for each other. And Bipasha and Harman who’re openly spotted joined at the hip and will probably be joined in wedlock too after the release of his film, DISHKIYAAOON. Which is a swell idea considering Bips’ ex John has already done the deed and added Abraham to his beloved Priya Runchal’s name… Love is alive, by the looks of it!
But ironically, the twosome that generally has us all agog with their romantic trysts and lovey-dovey sightings, is supposedly battling some serious relationship squalls… The arctic weather in New York, the destination of Kat-Bir’s year-end holiday together, seems to have spread its icy tentacles between them as well. And it’s the same old story – supposedly Ranbir won’t set a date and Kat is getting frustrated waiting.
But I’m not giving up hope yet. Unlimited time together as they shoot for JAGGA JASOOS… and the thaw’s gotta melt, trust me!
