Ranbir kept out of his leading ladies' hair over the weekend because he was busy elsewhere, but TOI learnt that there are some new developments pertaining to his personal life.
Since RK Junior is the most eligible bachelor in B-town, rich, super-successful, blue-blooded and talented, the women have been seeking his attention constantly.
An insider says, "The guy has had no breathing space. He is constantly smothered with affection." Barely had his famous affair with Deepika Padukone ended, when he was linked to Katrina Kaif. The reason for his split with Deepika is well-known. It is alleged that his mother, Neetu Kapoor didn't approve of the hazel-eyed Bangalore beauty.
A few days ago the snooping paparazzi insisted that after filmmaker Karan Johar's party to celebrate his win at the Filmfare Awards, Kat spent time sipping coffee at Ranbir's Pali Hill home, late at night.
Kat and Ranbir do share very good vibes. They are both rumoured to be doing Ayan Mukerji's second film that might mount the floors at the end of 2011 or early 2012 depending on when Ayan furbishes a finished script. In this context we must reproduce an informal conversation with Neetu who mentioned, "I like Katrina. She's a sweet girl."
However, there are rumours saying that Neetu's innocuous statement certainly doesn't mean that KK has the senior Mrs Kapoor's stamp of approval for anything more serious.
An industry insider says, "Neetu was last seen lunching with Ranbir's Rockstar heroine Nargis Fakhri at a five-star hotel. To onlookers it certainly looked like Neetu had taken the young, extremely attractive model-turned-actress under her wing."
Now whether this is also an innocuous lunch meet or whether it is Neetu's way of saying she prefers Nargis over the other girls who are Ranbir's 'good friends' is something only time will tell.
