Ranbir Kapoor might be busy moving into his love nest with 'lady-love' Katrina Kaif, but looks like mother Neetu Kapoor isn't ready to welcome the 'special' friend yet.

Neetu, who recently uploaded a couple of photos on Instagram of a relative's birthday party, cropped Kaif from a family picture for reasons best known to her. Was this done in order to avoid further media speculation about the lovebirds or was it a deliberate attempt?

Known as the one of the most adorable mother-son duo of the Hindi film industry, Neetu and Ranbir have been often been spotted at parties together. However, it has often been reported that the latter's 'Mamma's boy' attitude has peeled him away from his many relationships. Will this bond suffer a similar fate? Only time will tell.

However, Kaif had almost charmed the Kapoor family when she rushed to their residence to meet a recuperating Rishi Kapoor. It was being said that the "Bang Bang" actress has been finally accepted by Ranbir's parents. But, the photos tell a different story.

The couple, clearly isn't paying any heed to the rumours, and is concentrating on decorating their new home on Carter Road, Mumbai. "The well-appointed apartment, which boasts of two terraces, has already had the approval of two of the most significant others in RK's life - Ayan and KJo. But there is a bigger housewarming party on the anvil, where industrywallahs are likely to be invited for a closer look at what is being touted as the most stylish star home in the country," stated a Mumbai Mirror report.

Interestingly, the "Barfi" actor gave a different account. At a recently concluded event, he reportedly said that moving out of the parents' house was a temporary decision adding it was being expanded.
