MUMBAI: Indian Supreme Court declared Bollywood superstars Rabir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif, a husband and wife in the eyes of law.
Katrina Kaif and Ranbir Kapoor have made no announcement of any upcoming wedding plans, but Indian Supreme Court said that the two are married in the eyes of the law.
According to this ruling that was announced on Monday, any unmarried couple living together as husband and wife would be presumed to be legally married and the woman would be eligible to inherit the property after death of her partner.
This ruling also states that any offspring produced as a result of a live-in relationship would be considered legitimate.
Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif have been rumored to be dating since they worked together in Ajab Prem ki Ghazab Kahani in 2010.
Rumours of their engagement surfaced, but were quickly silenced when Ranbir categorically denied them in an interview published in The Times of India in February this year.
Katrina added fuel to the rumours by initiating a Whatsapp group called “The Kapoors” in March. As the admin of the WhatsApp group, she added members of Ranbir’s family, Neetu Kapoor, Rishi Kapoor, Ridhimia Kapoor Sahni and her mother Suzanne Torquette.
When Ranbir was questioned about the Whatsapp group in a media conference, he refused to discuss the topic and walked out.
