5 years after Ranbir Kapoor made his debut with ‘Saawariya’, Alia Bhatt stepped into the film industry with the blockbuster film ‘Student of the Year’ in 2012.
Alia established herself as a wonderful actress with her roles in films such as ‘Udta Punjab’, ‘Dear Zindagi’ and the recently released ‘Raazi’.
Alia is currently shooting for ‘Brahmastra’, the first part of a fantasy trilogy being directed by Ayan Mukherji and being produced by Dharma Productions.
Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt will be working together for the first time in this movie. Even megastar, Amitabh Bachchan is a part of the film’s stellar cast!
While working on the first schedule of the movie in Bulgaria, Ranbir and Alia started getting close. Soon enough the rumours of Ranbir and Alia being together started doing the rounds. It was only in May 2018 that Ranbir confirmed that he and Alia were indeed together.
Alia Bhatt has always been vocal about the massive crush that she has always had on Ranbir Kapoor. In fact, when Karan asked her who should would like to ‘marry, hook up and kill’, in the rapid fire segment of his chat show ‘Koffee with Karan’, Alia immediately said that she’d marry Ranbir Kapoor.
Alia’s first interaction with Ranbir was when Karan called Ranbir up after ‘Rockstar’ released. Karan told Alia to talk to the actor and tell him how much she loved him. After this, Alia even said that she would still want to marry Ranbir Kapoor.
It is rumoured that Ranbir asked Alia out on New Year’s Eve, i.e., 31st December 2017.
Ranbir’s mother even flew down to celebrate Alia’s birthday in March 2018.
Alia has often been seen on dinner dates with the entire Kapoor family. Ranbir Kapoor has also been clicked visiting Alia’s father Mahesh Bhatt.
Famously referred to as “the hook up of 2018” by acclaimed designer Manish Malhotra, Ranbir and Alia made their first formal public appearance together at actress Sonam Kapoor Ahuja’s wedding reception in May 2018.
It remains to be seen now, whether or not Ranbir and Alia take their relationship another step forward in the coming years. After a string of girlfriends, is Alia ‘the one’ for Ranbir Kapoor? Only time will give us the answer to this question…
