For a while, there has been speculation about Katrina Kaif and Ranbir Kapoor’s relationship, specially post his last outing, ‘Tamasha’ opposite ex flame Deepika Padukone. Gossip mills suggest all is not well between the lovebirds, but Kat is making a last-ditch effort to put their house in order.
The actress, we hear, plans to whisk off her beau for a year-end break to an island, instead of their favourite holiday destination, New York. For the past two years, they have been bringing in the New Year in the Big Apple.
Sources in the know say the island trip has been planned not only to take some time off, but, more important, to introspect where their relationship is headed.
Presently, Ranbir is shooting in London for Karan Johar’s ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’, which is expected to wind up by this weekend. He does not have any other film commitments. Kat is known to head home to London for X’mas after which she takes off with RK to usher in the New Year.
Says a source, “It appears that Katrina is keen to make things work. She has been telling her friends about wanting to fly out with Ranbir for a few days urgently. She has hinted on a lesser-known place, preferably an island getaway. After celebrating Christmas with her family, she will fly out to the chosen destination and Ranbir will directly meet her there.”
The couple is slated to be back in town on January 3 after which they will begin work on their long-in-the-making film ‘Jagga Jasoos’. Adds the source, “Katrina is keen that this project be completed to prove detractors wrong about her and Ranbir’s onscreen chemistry.”
She opened a Pandora’s box in a recent interview where she admitted to not being close to Ranbir’s family. She had also admitted she was not happy about him working with Deepika, and her greatest fear was that her man may not love her completely if and when she gets married.
Katrina Kaif was not available for comment.
