But now Bharti has finally broken her silence and cleared the air saying that she has not even met the Tamasha actor. In an interview to , “Last week, I got a call from a friend who asked me if I was dating Ranbir Kapoor. Like any other girl with no connection to Ranbir or even Bollywood, I thought someone was playing a prank on me. Then I got to know that I was being tagged as ‘Ranbir’s new Delhi-based girlfriend’ by a news channel.”
There were rumours that Ranbir’s sister Riddhima Kapoor Sahni introduced him to Bharti at a party. Bharti told the leading daily that she doesn’t even know Riddhima and has no idea of who cooked up all these stories. “I have no means of meeting him, nor do I want to meet him. It is very awkward answering these things. Some people are saying that I must be happy to be in the limelight, but it is just stressful, with people calling me and my family, looking for more details,” added Bharti.
The Delhi-based make-up artist has also rubbished the reports of her going to Morocco to meet Ranbir. According to Bharti, she was in Jaipur with her boyfriend Prateek Chaudhary at the same time. “I have been dating him for the past three years. Our families know about us, and we will be formally engaged soon. I was on a vacation in Jaipur with him and I also have pictures from there. How could I be in Morocco? All these are false details and are there just to make the rumour more juicy. But it has really impacted my life. My boyfriend Prateek has been very supportive,” Bharti told the leading daily.
