Katrina Kaif is known to be an paragon of grace and poise. The actress had always maintained silence when it comes to her personal life, be it her family, friends and past relationships.
But her breakup with Ranbir Kapoor had left a scar on her life which led to a path of self-discovery.
After years of dating, the couple called it quits in 2016. Interestingly the duo was cool working together post-breakup.
During an interview with Mid-Day, the Bollywood diva revealed that she had been open with her relationship and breakup with heartthrob Ranbir Kapoor simply because the media was interested.
“If I had my way, I would have never spoken about my relationship. I chose to talk about it because the media was interested in it. I couldn’t have dodged the bullet every time. I would have sounded rude if I did that. So, the best thing was to share the bare minimum I wanted to and be frank enough to accept the reality. We [she and Ranbir] still have respect for each other, and that will not change,” she stated.
She revealed that despite the breakup being a rough patch in her life, she came out stronger.
“When I was going through a separation, one of my sisters was also in the same phase. That’s when I realized that since my life was out in the open, the ego was more bruised, but at the end of the day, we both felt the same pain. I found solace in reading.”
“My friends were also a strong source of support. I don’t have any regrets [about the relationship]. I have come out of the experience a lot more mature.” She added.
Katrina sees the chapter as a blessing in disguise because according to her the breakup gave her the time for self-love and self-evaluation.
Katrina and Ranbir have worked on films including Rajneeti, Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahaani, and Jagga Jasoos. Fans continue to adore their onscreen chemistry.
