But no more. The reason being Ranbir Kapoor. Says a well-informed source, “Katrina who is not known to share buddy vibes with any other actress had warmed up to Alia, giving the younger girl lots of fitness and food advice. That apart they also shared a lot of girl-time together. This was all before Alia began to grow close to Ranbir Kapoor.”
Still raw and hurting over the way she was treated in her relationship with Ranbir, Katrina according to her close associates is “surprised and hurt” by Alia’s sudden proximity. “Katrina knows exactly how it is going to end for Alia. She has been there, seen it all. But it’s not Katrina’s nature to poke her nose in other’s affairs. Besides anything that she would say in the way of a warning would sound like sour grapes to the outside world. So she’s just keeping quiet,” says a friend.
