When Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt showed up looking like a power couple at Sonam Kapoor and Anand Ahuja’s wedding in May, walking hand in hand, it turned quite a few heads. The people smelled the next B-Town romance sparking between these celebs who looked absolutely stunning together. Starring in an upcoming film together, they were seen hanging out quite often, raising suspicions.
Ranbir, in a recent interview with GQ, confirmed all the speculations and calling their relationship “really new”. When asked about his relationship with Alia, while expressing his admiration for her, he said:
“It’s really new right now, and I don’t want to over speak. It needs time to breathe and it needs space. As an actor, as a person, Alia is — what’s the right word — flowing right now. When I see her work, when I see her act, even in life, what she gives is something that I’m aspiring to for myself.”
On falling in love all over again, here’s what he had to say: “It always comes with a lot of excitement. It’s a new person, it comes with new beats. Old tricks become new tricks again — you know, being charming and romantic, all of that. I think I’m more balanced today. I value relationships more. I can appreciate hurt and what it does to a person much more than I could a couple years back.”
They star in the upcoming Ayan Mukerji’s film ‘Brahmastra’. He also directed ‘Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani’ in which Ranbir Kapoor also previously dated his co-star Deepika Padukone. Although Alia has kept her silence, the duo seems to have gotten close on the sets of ‘Brahmastra’, even spending the New Year ’s Eve together!
Ranbir’s dating Katrina Kaif was a public affair as well, with them rumored as almost getting married.
The twist in the tale is how Alia and Katrina are best friends. From labeling each other ‘BFF’s’ in social media posts to doing shows together such as ‘BFF’s with Vogue’, they have professed their love for each other on multiple occasions.
In a cryptic reaction, Katrina Kaif posted the words ‘I will believe it when I see it, I will see it when I believe it’ on her Instagram story, which her fans speculate is about Ranbir and Alia dating.
In another interview, Alia Bhatt mentioned that she will not have a move-in relationship and that she will only live with the person she marries.
