Katrina praises Ranbir, his family
According to a report on Media247.co.uk, Katrina Kaif is all praise for her alleged boyfriend Ranbir Kapoor. The report cited a PTI story where the actress was quoted as saying that Ranbir Kapoor is a naturally gifted actor. In an interview with TOI, Katrina had said, "Ranbir is like me, in the way that he is very loyal and emotional to the people he really cares about in his inner circle, which is very small. He can come out very detached to people outside of that. The only difference between his behaviour and my behaviour, let's say on a film set, is that while he is incredibly charming and polite with everyone that he comes in contact with, I don't think he yet realises what an important and amazing trait that is, I will get tired after saying a good morning to just three people."
While Katrina is usually reluctant to talk about her alleged beau, Ranbir Kapoor, she was all praise for Ranbir's parents.
In an interview at the India Today Conclave, actress Katrina Kaif went on to praise alleged boyfriend Ranbir Kapoor’s parents to no end. When questioned about her relation with Neetu, Katrina called her a beautiful, stunning and fantastic lady and praised her for starting her career at such a young age, and marrying her love.
But Ranbir’s family does not reciprocate
Interestingly, the Bang Bang actress took the blame for fuelling the rumours of her relation going sour with them, as she chose to keep quiet. When asked about Neetu cropping her out in a selfie, Katrina said that she needs airbrushing in her pictures, and since she is not active on the social platform, she is unaware of it. Calling Rishi Kapoor a darling, Katrina reminded her fans that the two acted together in the film Namaste London and even went out on dinners.
While Katrina doesn’t get tired of praising the Kapoors, Neetu Singh recently shared Deepika and Ranbir’s picture on Instagram.
According to a report in Mumbai Mirror, Neetu Kapoor surprised her 50,000 followers when she posted a picture of her son Ranbir Kapoor with his former flame, Deepika Padukone, from Ayan Mukerji's blockbuster, Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani, with the caption `A Happy Joyous Colourful Holi to all my Insta Buddies !!!!' The still from the popular Holi song, 'Balam pichkari,' sent fans of RK and Dippy into a tizzy, with some speculating that the former lovebirds will eventually reunite while others claimed that Neetu `aunty' was sending an `indirect message' to her son's live-in partner, Katrina Kaif. Rishi Kapoor, however, retorted, saying that, "I imagine it is Holi thus a picture of revelry and that's a song her son has sung. Don't overstretch your imagination!"
While Rishi Kapoor came to his wife's rescue this time, Ranbir's sister, Riddhima had to step in to clear the air when mother Neetu Kapoor had cropped out Katrina from a picture that she posted on Instagram. (The Before and After versions of the photograph is question can both be seen on this page.)
The Kapoor clan has always refrained from commenting on Ranbir Kapoor's relationship status with alleged girlfriend Katrina Kaif. Apart from the one instance when Kareena spilled the beans on Koffee With Karan, the duo and their family have kept mum about their relationship. However, Ranbir's sister Riddhima Sahni felt the need to come clean on certain aspects to clear the air about her mother's disapproval of Ranbir's reported girlfriend. According to a report in DNA, a picture on Neetu Kapoor's Instagram picture, where she had allegedly cropped out Katrina from the frame, provided fodder for the rumour mills. Gossip vines suggested that Ranbir's mother's disapproval over the couple's decision to move in together was apparent in the gesture of cropping out the actress from the frame. Apparently, Neetu Kapoor also received a lot of crass comments on the picture and that is when her daughter decided to take matters in her hands. She gave the offender an earful and reprimanded gossip mongers.
Here's what Neetu Kapoor had to say about her son's marriage plans...
A lot has been written about alleged lovebirds Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kapoor's plans to take their relationship to the next level. Mother Neetu Singh is also keen to see her son tying the knot and it was reported that she wants Ranbir to get married by 2016. According to a report on Bollywoodmantra.com, when asked about Ranbir’s marriage plans, Neetu Singh said at an event that they are ready whenever Ranbir is ready. The report quoted her saying, “Aaj kal ke bachchon ka kuch pata nahi hota. When they get ready… when they gonna get married… what they want to do. They are absolutely on their own trip, so I don’t know.” [sic] She also said that as a mother she wants him to get married soon, but she doesn't think he is ready. Also when asked about Katrina celebrating Christmas with the Kapoors, Neetu said that whoever Ranbir wants to get along with him, he can, stated the report.
Katrina tries to douse the flames
According to a report on Bollywoodlife.com, a source informed that Katrina Kaif has started a WhatsApp group named The Kapoors! Katrina is the admin of the group and has added Neetu Kapoor, Rishi Kapoor, Riddhima Kapoor Sahni and mother Suzanne Torquette, the report stated. Further to the report, Rishi Kapoor already made an exit, possibly becoming the first one to quit this family WhatsApp group.
Katrina has been bonding big time with Ranbir's family. There have been reports of the actress spending time with Neetu Kapoor and also with Riddhima.
But recently, it was reported that a minor issue may crop up between the couple.
According to a report on Bollywoodlife.com, there is a small problem coming in the relationship of Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif. Katrina's former make-up artist Subhash Singh was fired by the actress for reporting late on the sets, the report stated. Apparently, Subhash will now don the producer’s hat with a Hindi movie that will be directed by Marathi filmmaker, Jayant Gilatar, the report further stated. Mentioning his quote given to a daily, the report added that if need be, Subhash will approach Ranbir (Kapoor) for the role and that he is sure Ranbir will do it. The film will go on floors in mid-March, the report concluded.
According to a report on Pinkvilla.com, Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif spent a lovey-dovey Valentine's Day in Delhi. Ranbir, who is shooting in the capital city for Imtiaz Ali's Tamasha, apparently invited Katrina for a Valentine's Day break, the report stated. The couple reportedly spent a good three days together.
Katrina refuses films
Recently, Katrina was in news for returning the signing amount to Disney Pictures as she wants to settle down with Ranbir.
According to a report in Filmfare, Katrina Kaif has supposedly returned the signing amount to Disney Pictures as she did not want to commit to new projects. Reportedly the reason behind this decision is the fact that she wants to settle down with her alleged beau, Ranbir Kapoor. According to the report, she was offered a three-film deal by Disney, with Fitoor being one of the three films. However, she has returned the signing amount. The report further adds that Katrina is refraining from committing to long schedules as she will be settling down with Ranbir soon.
Did they get engaged?
Well, though this couple tries hard to keep their relationship under wraps, their actions speak otherwise. Recently, there were rumors that Ranbir and Katrina were secretly engaged but Ranbir denied the claims entirely.
In an exclusive interview to Bombay Times, Ranbir Kapoor cleared the air on speculations regarding his engagement with his alleged girlfriend Katrina Kaif. The Kapoor lad said, “Engagement is to tell the world that right now we are promised to get married. I have not reached that place in my life”. He also wishes the paparazzi stops making conjectures about it as it spoils the spontaneity of it when it finally happens. Trying hard to protect his personal life from the cameras, Ranbir added that he wants to get married and have children and thus if it happens, he will certainly announce it.
Interestingly, Katrina challenged him that he doesn’t have an imaginative mind. And the Kapoor heir is now proving her wrong by coming up with a story. Until Ranbir is done with the task, know how Katrina may also be a part of Ranbir and Deepika Padukone’s film Tamasha in Delhi. Let's take a look at Ranbir - Katrina's love saga.

Shifting in together/ November 2014
By Priya Gupta, The Times of India April 2015
Ranbir and Katrina reportedly hosted a house-warming party at their new pad at Carter Road in Bandra in November 2014. A report on mid-day.com quoted a source saying that Ranbir had been staying at Krishna Raj bungalow due to father Rishi Kapoor's illness. But with improvements in his health, the couple stepped into their new house. Friends from the industry Ayan Mukerjee, Hrithik Roshan, Kangna Ranaut, Anushka Sharma, Kabir Khan, Mini Mathur and Karisma Kapoor turned up at the new pad for dinner, reported mid-day.com.
When a TV channel decided to take a picture of their alleged love nest, Ranbir supposedly got angry at the crew, sources were quoted telling mid-day.com. Sources further said to mid-day.com that when the crew was trying to get a glimpse of the duo outside their Bandra house, Ranbir apparently went mad at them and though he could not catch the cameraman, he is said to have gotten his hands on the cameraman's backpack from the car and is said to have taken it with him. He apparently even asked the car driver to call the cameraman who allegedly begged Ranbir to let him go as it was his first day at work.
According to a report on Bollywoodlife.com, the lovebirds shelled out Rs 15 lakh per month as rent for their love nest. The report further quoted a source saying, “Katrina wants to share the rent with Ranbir.” Moreover, Kat had been taking care of all the paperwork as she had done this before having lived independently in the city for so long, the report stated. “Kat is investing a lot of time reading up a lot about home decor on various sites, magazines and books for their new home,” the report quoted a source close to Katrina.
According to a Mumbai Mirror report, the couple had visited interior designer and architect Ashiesh Shah on certain occasions for his inputs. The well-appointed apartment, which boasts of two terraces, already had the approval of two of the most significant others in RK's life - Ayan and KJo, the report further stated. But there was a bigger housewarming party on the anvil, where industrywallahs were likely to be invited for a closer look at what is being touted as the most stylish star home in the country, wrote Mumbai Mirror.
Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif, who moved into their Carter Road apartment together, threw a pre-Christmas bash for their pals. "It's a big, beautifully done up house with a terrace garden overlooking the Arabian sea which is the envy of every owner in the block," a guest from the party told Mirror, adding, “The artefacts have been carefully handpicked by both from trips abroad, including London, Cape Town and Bangkok." According to a Mumbai Mirror report, the party began around midnight. RK's Rockstar director Imtiaz Ali, and Katrina's Phantom director, Kabir Khan and his wife Mini Mathur were among the first to arrive. While the guests interacted with one another, Ranbir had eyes only for his Kat. "They did a slow dance together, with pecks turning into lingering kisses. They looked every bit a loved-up couple," added the source.
According to a Mumbai Mirror report, Alia Bhatt drove straight from a comedy event. She was accompanied by Ayan Mukerjee, who is directing Ranbir and her in a yet-to-be-titled superhero movie next year. Kat's Mere Brother Ki Dulhan co-star, Imran Khan, came with wife Avantika. The film's director Ali Abbas Zafar also joined in. Karan Johar got hold of the cast of his next film ¬ Aishwarya, Ranbir and Anushka Sharma-under one roof. Ash walked in with husband Abhishek and sister-in-law Shweta Nanda. With beau Virat Kohli in Australia, Anushka came alone. Ditto Sonam Kapoor. “Karan Johar and Imran have had their share of differences but they were courteous with each other,“ a source said to Mirror.
According to a Mumbai Mirror report, for the pre-Christmas party, Katrina did not hire a Bollywood DJ but personally curated the house music that played all evening. The party was momentarily disrupted when some Hindi chartbusters suddenly cut into the mellow mood, the report stated. When Katrina checked, she discovered a neighbour with a fondness for peppy Salman Khan tracks, including the popular 'Jumme ki raat', was having a party too and had upped the volume on the stereo. “RK told Kat not to bother and soon the music died down,“ said the guest to Mirror.
According to a report on Pinkvilla.com, Ranbir Kapoor's favourite cook, who used to be with him at Krishna Raj bungalow, has also accompanied him to his new house. Ranbir reportedly stays there with his alleged girlfriend Katrina Kaif. The report further quoted a source as saying that Katrina Kaif is learning some recipes from Ranbir's favourite cook. It seems like Katrina is putting in practice the famous proverb, 'the way to a man's heart is through his stomach.'
The rumour mills went abuzz with reports of an impending marriage, but Ranbir and Katrina, who moved in together in their Carter Road apartment in November 2014, continued to keep mum about it. The two never spoke about their love life publicly and saw no reason why it should change. However, according to a report on Pinkvilla.com, the couple was keen to take their relationship to the next level. As opposed to their New Year holiday in New York in 2014 with Ayan Mukerji, they were planning to ring in 2015 in London. Apparently, the decision to do so was sparked off by the fact that Ranbir and Katrina wanted to discuss their wedding plans with Kat's family and also spend some quality time with them, over the holidays.
As per a report on Pinkvilla, the duo shifted base to their Carter Road apartment and were settling in and doing the usual couple things together. Apparently, for their housewarming party, Katrina tossed a quick salad for Ranbir and the latter was reportedly very happy about the same. While the duo were enjoying each other's company in the confines of their apartment, Ranbir was concerned about their security and privacy. With the paparazzi constantly on their trail, Ranbir's concerns seem to be well-founded. The report stated that the actor was seeking permission to install CCTV cameras around their apartment.
Their relationship has always been shrouded in mystery. According to a report on Mid-day.com, the two might get married by the end of 2016. The report stated that Ranbir Kapoor's parents Rishi and Neetu Kapoor have set a deadline for him to marry by the end of 2016 and Ranbir revealed this little detail to a friend during a shoot. Now whether the two will wait another year to get married or will wedding bells ring for the couple this year is something that only time will tell.
Ensuring quantity time with each other
According to a report in Mid-day, Katrina Kaif is all set to join rumoured beau, Ranbir Kapoor in Delhi where he is shooting for his next with ex-flame, Deepika Padukone. According to the reports, the second schedule of the Imtiaz Ali directorial, Tamasha, has begun and the lead actors of the film, Deepika Padukone and Ranbir Kapoor have already reached the capital to shoot for the film that is slated to release in December, this year. The report further claims that Ranbir's alleged girlfriend, Katrina might keep him company while he shoots in the freezing temperature.
Meanwhile, Katrina is currently shooting for Fitoor with Aditya Roy Kapur in Kashmir but Ranbir is not allowed on the sets of the film.
According to a report on Missmalini.com, Katrina Kaif, who is shooting in Kashmir for Abhishek Kapoor‘s Fitoor, won't get to meet boyfriend Ranbir while at work. The report states that Abhishek has booked dates from Rekha and Aditya Roy Kapoor as well, as he plans to wrap up the project as soon as possible. Apparently, to avoid distraction and any further delay, Abhishek has asked Ranbir Kapoor to not visit Katrina in Kashmir.
According to a report on Ndtv.com, Katrina Kaif has apparently admitted that her new year holiday was very special. In an interview with NDTV, Katrina, who vacationed in London with her family and then joined Ranbir Kapoor in NYC, spoke about the holiday and said that she had a wonderful new year and it was very special. When asked about the engagement rumours, she gave away little saying that there were no extra special things, but she had a lot of fun. According to the report, she focused more on the London part with family than the NYC part with Ranbir.
While Katrina has denied engagement reports, there is one advice that Ranbir's ex Deepika Padukone gave to Katrina recently.
According to a report in Mumbai Mirror, when asked about an advice that she would like to give Katrina Kaif, Deepika Padukone quipped that she shouldn't marry Ranbir. At a recent award function, Deepika Padukone walked down the red carpet solo. Usually accompanied by boyfriend Ranveer Singh, the actress did not mingle much, except for hugging Alia Bhatt and Parineeti Chopra. However, when asked to be a part of a funny behind-the-scenes video, she readily agreed. And when quizzed on what advice she would give Katrina Kaif, she immediately quipped, "Do not marry Ranbir Kapoor."
Rumours have been rife that Ranbir and Katrina were officially engaged in London [in early 2015].
According to a report in DNA, Katrina Kaif was spotted hiding her hands deep in her pocket, further fuelling rumours of an engagement. While the actress attended Farah Khan's birthday bash, she was careful to keep the left hand rooted in her pocket, perhaps ensuring that no one got a peek at her rock. However, while at a recent Awards ceremony, the actress sported a huge ring on her left hand. But there has been no confirmation from the couple on the same yet.
Rumours of a wedding
According to a report, while speculation of their impending marriage has been rife for a while, a reliable source close to the actors had informed that Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif were to get engaged on December 30, 2014 in London. “Katrina was in London to celebrate Christmas with her family. Ranbir joined her soon after. In the presence of a chosen few friends and Katrina’s family, the two apparently exchanged rings. Apparently, arrangements about the guests’ pick and drop were done in advance,” a source was quoted in the report. “The wedding is likely to happen post May 2015 as work is the couple's priority at the moment,” the report further quoted the source. However, when contacted Katrina on December 23 asking about the same, she had categorically denied the news stating, "No not true at all." According to a report on Bollywoodmantra.com, Ranbir’s parents Neetu and Rishi also flew to London to attend the engagement of their son.

Bollywood's alleged couple was spotted and clicked by fans and the pictures made their way to social networking sites.

According to a report on Pinkvilla.com, Ranbir's fans were lucky to get photographs clicked with the star. The picture is taken at Starbucks, the report stated. Even Katrina Kaif, who joined him after celebrating Christmas with family in London, was at the store shopping with Ranbir, but she didn't get clicked as she was not well, the report further concluded.
According to a report, after the grand Christmas lunch with the Kapoors, the actor took off for London. He landed in Heathrow and was snapped by a few fans, the report stated. Ranbir apparently took off for New York to be joined later by ladylove Katrina Kaif. According to the report, rumour mills suggested that he was to ask Katrina's hand from her mother for marriage and that the two will get engaged soon after, and will be married once Bombay Velvet releases.
According to a report on NDTV.com, Ranbir Kapoor had decided to not let Katrina's absence dampen his festive spirit. Ranbir reportedly started the festivities by throwing a grand party for his friends from the film fraternity, which saw the likes of Alia Bhatt, Anurag Kashyap, Sonakshi Sinha, Arjun Kapoor, Sidharth Malhotra in attendence. While Katrina was apparently away in London, celebrating Christmas with her family, Ranbir hosted a grand party on Christmas eve at his Bandra residence, where he lives with Katrina. Meanwhile, Ranbir was apparently scheduled to attend the Kapoors' Christmas lunch. The entire Kapoor clan, along with their respective partners, gathers at the Kapoor bungalow, Krishna Raj, for a family day filled with food and fun, every year.
Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif looked every bit the loved-up couple at their Christmas bash. This had set off rumours that the actor may introduce his live-in partner as the 'next Mrs Kapoor' at the annual Kapoor luncheon at Shashi Kapoor's Juhu house. However, according to a report in Mumbai Mirror, Ranbir's ladylove was to give the big Christmas get-together a miss. She was instead having a white Christmas in London. “Katrina has left for London to be with her mom and sisters for Christmas. Although initially the plan was to join the Kapoors for their yearly bash, she later decided to spend the holidays with her family in the UK. Don't be surprised if you see RK in London for New Year's as the couple were toying with the idea of a small break together since it has been a hectic year for both of them." the report quoted a source.
Sonam Kapoor sceptical about the wedding
Sonam Kapoor too got vocal about the relationship between Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif. According to a report on Pinkvilla.com, when Sonam was asked what was most likely to happen in 2015 with three choices, the actress said that none of the events had any possibility of coming true. The options were if Salman Khan will get married, if the three Khans will do a movie together and if there's any chance of Ranbir-Katrina tying the knot, stated the report. Following up her blatant response, the actress did try to cover up, when asked what among the three events did she want to happen. Sonam replied that she would want to see Ranbir and Katrina getting married, the report concluded.
Katrina admits compatibility
Ranbir and Katrina have always kept mum about their reported relationship. The two reportedly moved in together, but never admitted to it in the media. However, it is only recently that Katrina has started opening up about the relationship or so it seems. A report on Bollywoodmantra.com stated that the actress, in an interview to Vogue India, picked Ranbir as her ideal partner on a desert island. Though the actress admitted that Ali Abbas Zaffar is her closest friend, when it came to the desert island, it seems that she would prefer taking alleged boyfriend Ranbir Kapoor.
Mid 2015: the relationship was over
Ranbir Kapoor was on Tinder while dating Katrina Kaif?
Their relationship might have hit rock bottom mid-2015. In an interview with a fashion magazine, Ranbir revealed that he tried using London version of dating app ‘Tinder’ in 2015, but wasn’t impressed with it. The actor opened up about the dating app saying, “I was in London last year and someone put me on the London version of Tinder. And though it has made social life easy, it’s quite… what’s the word?… it’s quite mean.” He went on to question what was going on in the world for people to resorting to such apps. While Ranbir did raise a few valid questions about dating in the 21st century, it is his admission of using the app while in a long term relationship. (The Times of India)
‘Katrina Kapoor’ parties separately
Though Ranbir Kapoor wasn't invited to the big Khan wedding of the year, his alleged ladylove Katrina Kaif chose to be a part of the celebrations given her equation with the bride, Arpita Khan. However, according to a report in DNA, Ranbir simply laughed-off Salman's tongue-in-cheek comments for his girlfriend Katrina Kaif. The actor apparently didn't mind Salman addressing Katrina as Katrina Kapoor and also didn't react to his comments on the actress' missed opportunity to be Katrina Khan. While it would have been expected that the actor would be miffed with the reports, Ranbir surprised everyone by taking the episode as a mere joke.
Doing a film together
Ranbir and Katrina fans have every reason to rejoice as their favourite on-screen pair is shooting for yet another film together. Katrina and Ranbir are currently shooting for Jagga Jasoos in Film City. However, the actors are not talking to each other. Why you ask? Well, because they are singing out their lines. According to a report in DNA, Jagga Jasoos is a musical and will have Ranbir and Kat communicating with each other through songs. The film that combines elements of a musical and a suspense-thriller, is an experiment of sorts and features 20 songs, all composed by Pritam.
The alleged couple was in Thailand shooting for their upcoming film Jagga Jasoos. Pictures of the duo snapped at the shooting location had been doing the rounds on Twitter. Apparently, the team was shooting in the town of Pai.
According to a report in Mumbai Mirror, Ranbir and Katrina were clicked at the Thailand airport. The duo was there to shoot for their upcoming film Jagga Jasoos. The report also said that Ranbir and Katrina will be staying in the town of Pai which is around 500 kilometres away from the Thai capital.

In the second part of the film, the plot will revolve around Katrina Kaif's life and she will eventually seen taking the CM's position. Rajneeti proved out to be a pathbreaking film for Katrina and she would be hoping for the sequel of the film to further cement her position in the industry
Seeking the family’s approval
While Ranbir Kapoor was off to South Africa with Katrina Kaif, he had reportedly asked his mother Neetu Singh to join them. However the Punjabi mom turned down the offer. According to a DNA report, Neetu Singh wanted to give the couple some space and time together. The report further stated that Neetu is fond of Katrina who she thinks would be an ideal daughter-in-law for the Kapoor khaandan. With the approval of parents, Ranbir-Katrina might be preparing for a bigger picture.
