Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif: A throwback to their beautiful love story

Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif starred together for the first time in Ajab Prem Ki Gazab Kahaani (2009) and reportedly, this is when the love started to blossom between the two. Ranbir and Katrina dated each other for around 6 years and they decided to part ways in 2015.

Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif were one of the hottest couples in B-town. The two starred together for the first time in Rajkumar Santoshi's Ajab Prem Ki Gazab Kahaani (2009) and reportedly, this is when the love started to blossom between the two. Ranbir and Katrina dated each other for around 6 years. The two parted ways in 2015 and since then they have maintained a dignified silence on their break up. However, post the infamous break-up, Kat and Ranbir worked together in Anurag Basu’s Jagga Jasoos, which did a decent performance at the box-office. 

When it comes to their Bollywood debuts, Ranbir Kapoor made his Bollywood debut with Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Saawariya. He went on to win the Filmfare Award for Best Male Debut. His career includes some exemplary performances in movies like Wake Up Sid, Rockstar, Anjana Anjani, Barfi, Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani and Ae Dil Hai Mushkil. 

On the other hand, Katrina made her Bollywood debut with Boom (2013), a critical and commercial failure. However, later, she earned a lot of praise and adulation for her spectacular performances in movies – Maine Pyaar Kyun Kiya (2005) and Namastey London (2007). She is currently basking in the success of her latest release, Tiger Zinda Hai opposite Salman Khan

Interestingly, Ranbir and Katrina were introduced to each other by Deepika Padukone in 2008, whom he was dating at that time. It was Katrina’s birthday bash where Deepika took Ranbir along. It was in 2009, when the two met officially as they teamed up for their film, Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani. However, at that time, Katrina was dating Salman Khan and Ranbir was still dating Deepika.

After the release of Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani, their sizzling on-screen chemistry became the talk of the town. This also created trouble in Deepika-Ranbir’s paradise and finally, they broke up in 2010. In an interview, Ranbir confessed that he had cheated in a relationship.’’ Yes, I've cheated, out of immaturity, out of inexperience, out of taking advantage of certain temptations, out of callousness. You

realise it now, when you grow up and you value it more why be in a relationship, why be committed to someone when you cannot be committed,’’ Ranbir had said.

Soon after Ranbir and Deepika’s breakup, the rumors of Salman and Katrina breaking up with each other also started doing the rounds. And, finally, they parted ways in a hush-hush manner. 

After Ajab Prem Ki Gazab Kahaani, the two starred in Raajneeti (2010). However, till that time nothing was ever confirmed by them. In July 2013, Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif were spotted holidaying in Ibiza, Spain. The images of the two went viral on the internet and it turned everyone’s doubts into reality. Moreover, in an episode of Koffee with Karan season four, Kareena Kapoor Khan had said that she plans to dance on 'Chikni Chameli' at Ranbir and Katrina's wedding, putting another family stamp on the relation that was yet to be officially announced. 

By late 2013, Ranbir and Katrina began making confident, public appearances - a clear suggestion of maturity and stability in their relationship. In 2014, both the actors had admitted in different interviews that they hold a special place in each other’s lives. Katrina had said, "He is an extremely important person in my life. I have a lot of regard for him. He is an amazing person, and an amazing actor. That’s the best way I can put it. And I feel everyone — to a large extent — is aware of his presence in my life." 

On the other hand, Ranbir had said, "My family, Ayan, Katrina, as she is a very special person in my life, Rohit Dhawan, who I grew up with, and Aisha Divetri, my school friend. And Imtiaz Ali and Anurag Basu, as they add a lot to my life."

In 2014, Ranbir and Katrina moved in together in their new house in suburban Mumbai. They reportedly also hosted a housewarming party for their close friends at their new place. 2015 opened with another big breaking news - there were reports that Ranbir and Katrina’s got secretly engaged in London on December 30, 2014 in the presence of family members and a few close friends.

In 2016, there were reports that Kat and Ranbir were planning to get married anytime soon. In an interview with a leading newspaper, Ranbir had said, "This year, there's a lot of pressure on me because of work. I feel I won't be able to make the time. I'm thinking of getting married towards the end of next year. Till now, that's the plan for me and her."

However, during the promotions of his movie, Bombay Velvet, Ranbir had dismissed the marriage rumors by saying,  "Yes, I am in love but I have not made any marriage plans yet. There are so many rumors surrounding my marriage like sometime people have quoted me that I am getting married next year. But there are no plans as such." Moreover, Katrina had also stated that there were no plans of wedding anytime soon.

Katrina Kaif and Ranbir Kapoor parted ways during the shoot of Jagga Jasoos in January, 2016. There were also reports that the two didn’t get along well during the shooting of the film. Post the breakup, when Ranbir was asked about his personal relationship with Katrina Kaif, he had said, ‘’My relationship with Katrina, whatever has been said or written by the media or the conjectures, it has always been a very positive one. I don’t think I can miss having her in my life. I need her in my life. She has such a positive influence on me, as a person and as an actor, and she’ll continue being that. That’s what it is. There is nothing like not talking to each other or not showing up. It was a lot of hard work not just by me but also by her. She is equally as important in the film as I am. She has stood by this film for three and a half years. She is the producer of this film. I am very grateful for that partnership I have with her. I admire it.’’

In one of her interviews sometime back, Katrina had shared her thoughts on the entire break-up episode. She had said, ‘’The last year-and-a-half has been, at many times, extremely rough and trying for me. I think I’m still in the transition period till I find myself and learn a lot more about myself. I am happy in this phase. I’m working hard and understanding the joys of a film set. But I’m still in a phase where there’s a lot of uncertainty.” 

Well, the two now seem to have moved on in their lives. Ranbir is currently prepping up for Ayan Mukerji’s Brahamastra, opposite Alia Bhatt. Katrina, on the other hand, is busy shooting for Aanand L Rai’s Zero, which also stars Anushka Sharma and Shah Rukh Khan in the lead roles.

I just want to say I love you RK...:)

Really, this is the love story, two insecure people, cheated, started out with bad karma, ended ! These two needs to get therapy!

See kat fans. Rk was with DP n kat was with Salman . Both cheated on their partners. Dp was a fool to introduce cunning kat to RK. Dp intention was pure but she doesn't know how bad kat is. The reason why kat avoids face off from DP is that she is guilty and she knows it.
PINKVILLA POST THIS. WHY ARENT YOU? DONT BE BIASED

RK and Kat broken up for over 2yrs. how is this a love story. delusional much!

Yawn!

Mahira , always says that you do not rush love, it has to be natural and organic, it means peace! If she has a understanding with RK, then they are the two who knows, She is busy with her projects and events, hope to see her in London for Asian film festival

let her live stop dragging her in rk posts

despo kat is still despo for ranbir and the kapoor surname, the guy dumped her without even telling her and she's still dying to link herself to him..GET SOME DIGNITY PLZ

Also clinging to past Restricts one to create beautiful future..Best wishes.

So kat wants to be friends with Ranbir now like dp hmmmm

Friendship!!!Run Ranbir Run..

she wanted everything or nothing at all, but now she has no films and no one seems to be interested in going out with her, so she must be like ok maybe just friends so that i can use that like my friendship with salman to stay in the news..

Why kat not dating people out side BW?

Kat is a very insecure person, I saw a interview with RK and kat, where he said it in front of her that he has never approach or chase some one , they came to him, she just smirk, he was hinting at her. So, Deepika was right, Kat was that chased RK. Plus, why would you attend a Christmas lunch, with the family that deleted your phone number and the mother who deleted you out of the pic. Sorry, Kat , you do not need RK, you need therapy. Stop with the excerise and face obsession. already, work on your inner self!

and i was like good on her, maintaining a dignified silence and moving on with her life..but then again she has nothing else going on, no new movies and she has already milked her friendship with one ex, SK dry and now she's back to milking a broken relationship that ended on a humiliating note with the man running for his life UGH

hey kat, if you're reading this, you've wasted 7 years waiting for him to marry you but he picked up his stuff and ran away instead and he's moved on and so should you..stop with the pinning and desperation..he's not coming back to you and you're not getting any younger..so plz for your own sake..MOVE ON

Mahira you must be careful even more. atlest katrina had RK all to herself in his best days and you are starting out just now lol you will be turning 34 this year end and you are not getting any younger. so before asking Katrina to move on, you must look after yourself first. lol

Dear, MK just turn 33yrs old, she is the top star in pak, plus , international following. Best films, best ADs, international events, and a natural beauty, wins awards for best dressed, and for her films! She has more then enough attention! RK, should be this lucky! So, how are you doing!

LOL, MK says, if you wants RK , and he wants you as well, then go for it ! MK respect her self, too much, she only wants the man, that says he loves her, mean it!

yes. we know she is the kind to go for it #goforitsala lol

yes our is epitome of self respect . never steps back on what she believes in. lol

RK wants other women, Kat or who ever, Mahira is very confident girl, she would tell him to go for it! Why would she wants some one who does not love her with all his heart. MK in her last interview had said that no one had betray her in love or broken her heart! This said it all! Kat should learn from MK!

Mahira is right now busy promoting cricket team, she has nothing to do with kat, Rk will have to be the man to swept Mahira off her, feets. all her fans knows, MK does not do the cahsing! with or with out RK, she will have a amazing career, closeness with her family and she grew up with close friends, good health. So, RK should be this lucky!

really ladies over a Casanova!! not worth it . Both of you go live a happy life with good people who are worthy of you

Hey Mahira and kat, ladies hes not worth trolling each other over you both should live love laugh with people who deserve you not a Casanova

I love Rahira , I hope it is true, I do not know about them, it will make me happy, I will win, I predicated this!

your hope is going to be fulfilled

Question, why this perfection,with looks, wealth,and education, doing with Ranbir, who is a average looker,she should with Kevin mittal! lOL!

More like a sad affair, what a waste of time

One cant be happy by hurting others. You reap what you sow. Both Ranbir and Kat cheated their then partners and hurt them especially kat who help Ranbir to cheat on DP. so its karma.

I thought that may be it was Ranbir, google the interview, where RK in front of Kat said, that he never approach or chased any one. she just smirk. He was talking about her! Deepika is right, never trust Kat with your boyfriend!

Agree.

Gosh it's been almost 2.5 - 3 years??? How time flies!

I do feel sorry for Katrina though, Ranbir just ate/chewed and spit her out...but there were warning signs from the beginning, clearly his parents were always middle of his love life and clearly Ranbir was going to do whatever they said but regardless, Katrina is still lucky, she got $$$, career, health and fame, most of us dont even have 1% of what she has especially in India!! so she still comes ahead!!

Karma hit het. She has Ex Salman other wise she would have disappeared after Jj disaster. Post pv plz don't ignore

uff she is still dying to get him back

They looks like a dream couple in Tera hone laga hoon. They have never looked this adorable with any of their co actors.

Reality check, real life is not perfect like reel life, kat and RK both have temper and big egos! Plus, RK ,mom not liking actresses!

Jealous Padukone ruined their beautiful relationship during Tamasha.

Before blaming deepika recall how jealous turquote ruined rkdp relationship during ajab pram. Truth should be posted plz pv don't. Pv be neutral. If u won't means u r paid by kat

Look at the bright side. If Ranbir didn’t break up with her, she wouldn’t be happily with ranveer now. Things happen for a reason.

Yes its good for DP. but then ask these kat fans not to blame her. Bcoz DP didnt broke or ruined RK KAT. if they say so kat did it first.
truth should be posted

DP was all over Ranbir and i am Deepika fan. Sorry it was very cheap when she did that. Thats why i say I like Deepika onscreen but not offscreen.

Kat was all over ranbir and I am a Kat fan. Sorry it was cheap when she did that. That's why I said I like Kat on screen but not off screen. Post pv plz don't ignore this time

I just wish they are still together...they are together for 7 longggg years before parting for the reason best known to them...I hope they get back together...

Break up just not happens,it is collections of many issues, last action is to separate ,it is part of life,nothing is forever,life is to move forward,is what RK and kat doing,looking just fine!

they are still milking this biggest PR stunt in the history of BW?! lol

PR mataji kat start again

If we look at this logically, I don’t think it’s Kat’s PR. She couldn’t even stand him during Jagga Jasoos promotions. I was a little bit shocked that she didn’t even try to hide that she’s annoyed with him. She’s definitely done with him.

If we look at this logically,I don’t think it’s RK, he is currently avoiding any news about any link ups past present or future

Good they separate. They looked so odd with each other. Ranbir never seemed happy and at ease around her like he normally feels around Deepika, Alia or Anushka. He never looked happy with Katrina. Hope they never ever reconcile.

They looked beautiful together but she too looks happier now after breaking up.

Je suis triste

they even moved in in same house, they should just got married. dont know that happand but both was a match

biggest pr exercise!

What a waste of space going on about a couple who have broken up many moons ago !!!!

AGREE!

They broke up 2 years ago, this article doesn't make any sense now. BTW their love story was anything but beautiful which involved some scandals, negative rumours,hate by DP and Sallu bhais fans etc... for years they couldn't even confess that they are dating each other because they were supposedly dating other people at that time.

They had such a long relationship i hope they will come back together...! They deserve to be hapoy☺️

Throwback for exes???

Why now...it's been 2 years, why can't you leave Kat, ranbir and us fans...let us move on in peace

I wish they patch up still remember when i was 14 years old and i use to say my girlfriend we are like rankat ajab prem ki gazab kahani is my favourite movie and tera hone laga hoon is love anthem for me

Yawn next

Haha then her fans says she has move on.

Lol mother of all PR stunts!!!

They are born for each other.

It’s ranbir’s Biggest loss ....she was a great match for him

Pls...can you both patch up ?

I could not get over the news when I heard of their break up. It just broke my heart. I thought they were match made in heaven

What’s the point now?

whose stupid idea is this story

we all know it was a big lie!

but why ????

Throwback? Why? RK got out. No need to re-visit -- Shukria.

biggest lie! lol
