Looking at the videos only make us wonder about when do we get to see Akansha and Devika reciprocating the same for Alia (we bet you know what we mean)! In a latest interview with DNA, the Raazi star spoke about putting a date to her wedding, “I’m too young to think about it. When I feel there’s a need to be in a stronger bond with him, we will come to it. But right now, I’m married to my work and I also have my relationship going well on the side."
Further speaking about her rumoured 2020 wedding with Ranbir Kapoor, Alia was quoted as saying, “I don’t understand the need for everyone to discuss this (my wedding) all the time. But then, I think to myself that it’s a simple question and my answer remains the same. If I’m not getting married right now, that’s what I’ll say. I’m happy being in a relationship, but that doesn’t mean I’m tying the knot just yet.” (Must Read: Farhan Akhtar And Shibani Dandekar Complete One Year Of Togetherness, Posts An Adorable Picture)
A few days back, sources close to the celebs had given a subtle hint to the media about one of the most anticipated weddings in the industry. In the similar lines, a close family friend of the Kapoors threw light on the same and had shared, “She has been welcomed into the family by everyone. So it’s not just Ranbir who loves Alia. His parents, sister and the rest of the sprawling Kapoor family adore her too. Marriage is on Ranbir’s mind for sure and he will get into it happily this time. The couple will wait until Rishi Kapoor’s recovery before discussing a date for marriage.”
Most of the Kapoor bahus have given up their flourishing filmy careers post-marriage. A question which aroused in the same regards was ‘Will Alia follow suit?’ The source further added, “Though other Kapoor bahus like Karisma-Kareena’s mom Babita and Rishi’s wife Neetu Singh gave up their careers after marriage, theirs was a voluntary decision. Alia will continue with her thriving career.”
Speaking about career and marriage, Alia had once stated in an interview, “I would never fear getting married thinking my career might end. I will settle down if I want to. One should be able to have a career, regardless of being married or not.” The actress was all praises for her beau in an interview. Shedding light on the same, she had stated, “It’s been great working with him. It’s exactly how I imagined it to be. I’ve always thought that Ranbir is such an amazing actor. I’m at times shocked at how chilled out he is (laughs).”
Earlier, reports were rife that Alia and Ranbir were headed towards a 2020 marriage. On Ranbir’s 36th birthday on September 28, 2018, an insider told online portal BollywoodLife that the mommies were discussing about Alia and Ranbir’s marriage over the latter’s birthday dinner! Yes, a source revealed to the same portal, “Alia is in a great phase of her life right now. She is in love and they both are sure of each other. Marriage is certainly on the cards but it won't happen before 2020."
Also, do you guys know that Ranbir’s definition of love is as romantic and sweet as the man himself! In an interview with Anupama Chopra, the Sanju star defined love and stated, “Falling in love is the greatest thing in the world. When you fall in love, everything is great. Water tastes like sherbet and you seem like you are Uma Thurman. You feel great. Who doesn’t wanna be in love?” (Also Read: Alia Bhatt Attends Haldi Ceremony Of Her Bestie Devika Advani And Varun Jain, Video Inside)
