Ranbir’s unstable love life

Ranbir Kapoor time and again has been slammed by several of his ex-girlfriends throughout the span of his career. He was also accused of infidelity, to which he later commented on saying, “Yes, I have, out of immaturity out of inexperience, out of taking advantage of certain temptations, out of callousness. You realise it now when you grow up and you value it more. Why be in a relationship? Why be committed to someone when you can’t be committed?.” During an episode of Koffee with Karan, Sonam Kapoor who once dated Ranbir, said, “Ranbir is a great friend but I don’t know if he’s a great boyfriend. Honestly speaking. He’s a really nice guy. He’s got family values, and He’s really respectful. I’ve known Ranbir all my life. But as a boyfriend, I don’t know. She (Referring Deepika) did a great job hanging around that long.” Ranbir later commented on Sonam and called her a 'drama queen'.
