Ranbir Kapoor finally gets candid in responding to the rumours over his relationship with actress Katrina Kaif.

Post his "Rockstar" success, the 29-year-old actor has been making a lot of buzz in tinsel town. His value as an actor, meanwhile, shot up following the success of Anurag Basu's "Barfi".

As one of the most happening stars of Bollywood, Ranbir is constantly in the midst of speculations regarding his personal life, particularly when it comes to the woman he's romancing off screen.

Since the release of "Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani", the actor's close association with Katrina Kaif was the talk of B-town. Buzz is that they are just more than 'good friends'. But Ranbir has ruled out speculations about a relationship that is anything beyond friendship, and said that he's single and not a 'Casanova'.  

In an interview with Hindustan Times, Ranbir said, "I've worked with Katrina in two films and I genuinely feel she is one of the nicest, coolest, and most hard-working girls, other than being beautiful, talented and normal; a girl I can hang out and have great conversations with. I have a great connect with her as a friend and that is sometimes misconstrued."

Justifying his close association with the actress, he added, "It's a small industry and we end up working with the same people and meeting the same people, which tends to bring you close. That's about it. I was always her dear friend."
