Ranbir skips Anurag Basu’s Saraswati puja to avoid Katrina?


It has been one year since Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif split after a long-term relationship. The ex-lovers, thereafter, also shot for their incomplete project ‘Jagga Jasoos’, and had been professional in their approach. But it seems that the two actors are still not comfortable crossing each other’s paths.

Buzz is that Ranbir, who has been a regular guest at director Anurag Basu’s Saraswati Puja, skipped the event this year. But Katrina had marked her presence and also mingled with other guests from the industry. This has set tongues wagging that Ranbir deliberately missed it in order to avoid his ex-girlfriend.

A source present at the puja was quoted as saying, “It's a grand affair with Anurag and Pritam preparing the bhog (feast) themselves. RK's been a regular for some years at this event while his ex Katrina Kaif started attending it three years ago, when the couple was dating.”

“With Katrina’s solo appearance at Anurag's puja this year, it sparked off speculation whether Ranbir was deliberately avoiding his ex. However, the truth is, on this day, the actor was shooting for his Sanjay Dutt biopic directed by Rajkumar Hirani," the source added.

So, it appears that Ranbir’s project has come to his aid to avoid crossing paths with his ex-flame. The biopic went on floors in mid-January and the makers are targeting to release the film in December this year.

Meanwhile, Ranbir and Katrina’s much delayed project ‘Jagga Jasoos’ will hit screens on April 7.
