The actor decided to stay away from the celebrations despite being personally invited by the bride and groom.

Is it a  mere coincidence that in nearly all the films that Ranbir Kapoor has done so far from Saawariya to Jagga Jasoos, he loses the girl he loves to another man?

In real life it is the other way around. It is Ranbir Kapoor who opts out of nearly every relationship, be it the one with Deepika Padukone or Katrina  Kaif  or the earlier ones with   actresses, socialites and ladies who are not  part of the entertainment industry.

The joke going around Ranbir’s inner circle was that he would show up at Deepika’s marriage to sing Channa Mereya, just as he did in KaranJohar’s Ae Dil Hai Mushkil when Anushka Sharma marries Fawad Khan instead of Ranbir in the film.

Says a friend  of  the Kapoor family, “The joke about Ranbir singing and dancing to Channa mereya at the Deepika-Ranveer wedding got to Ranbir. He doesn’t appreciate the public image  of  the serial–dater  who never gets the girl. Ranbir is now looking for permanence in his relationship. And you are right. The image of loser in love through his roles doesn’t help. He just decided to stay away from Deepika and Ranveer’s wedding reception although both of them had invited him personally and urged him to come. Perhaps Ranbir is now looking at attending one wedding. His own.”

The young actor is also not in a celebratory mood due to his father Rishi Kapoor’s illness. The father and son who never were able to come really close to one another, are now closer than ever before due  to this family crisis.

The good news on that front is, Rishi Kapoor is slowly but steadily healing in New York.
