Actor Ranbir Kapoor has apparently found himself on the sidelines of the very public and extremely bitter feud between Kangana Ranaut and Hrithik Roshan – and by all accounts, he’s not best pleased. Rumours have suggested that the 33-year-old actor is Kangana’s new romance and, according to DNA, Ranbir ‘is in a state of shock.’

The DNA report quotes a source as saying, “He is wondering where these rumours originated as there is no truth to it. Ranbir is in a state of shock over the spate of stories that have sprung out of nowhere in the last few months.”

Ranbir, who has lately been busy filming Jagga Jasoos in Morocco, is not on social media. Says DNA’s source, “He is upset that people are taking advantage of the fact that he doesn’t issue clarifications. There is no truth in the stories of Ranbir and Kangana’s affair, yet in a very systematic manner this is being spread in media. He knows who is behind these rumours and if this continues, he is considering issuing a strong denial this time.”

Gossip has named Ranbir and Kangana as the newest showbiz couple, with the hashtag #nowranbirkangana trending on Twitter earlier this week. Ranbir Kapoor recently ended a relationship with Jagga Jasoos co-star Katrina Kaif – one that neither actor officially acknowledged.

Kangana Ranaut, 29, and Hrithik Roshan, 42, have done battle since January this year after she appeared to refer to him as a ‘silly ex’ in an interview. Kangana says they dated, Hrithik insists they didn’t. They have exchanged legal notices and public recriminations and the cyber cell division of Mumbai Police is also investigating whether an imposter posing as Hrithik has been corresponding with Kangana.
