Ranbir Kapoor and Neetu Kapoor have remained tight-lipped on all these speculations. However, a close friend of Ranbir has now opened up to explain what actually is happening! Speaking to Bollywood Hungama, the friend has been quoted saying, “Has it occurred to these outraged souls that Neetuji may perhaps have asked to be left alone? She is a very strong woman. She doesn’t need her son’s company to confront her grief.”
Yet another family friend has addressed to all the rumours of Ranbir Kapoor having moved in with Alia Bhatt. “He has his own place. After his dad’s demise, Ranbir is doing a lot of introspection. He hardly speaks to his close friends. He wants to be left alone.”
