Gone are the days when one solely had to depend on newspapers and radio for information on their favourite stars. Earlier, fans used to cram their way in a mob to catch a very glimpse of their stars. While that hasn’t changed much, keeping a tab on what our favourite stars are upto, has become a cakewalk these days. All thanks to the advent of social media and paparazzi that keeps us on our toes about our favourite celeb’s status! And social networking platform, Instagram plays a huge role in that.

One of the active and highest follower-grossing celebrities of India, Alia Bhatt’s Instagram handle always has 20-different moods of the beautiful dimpled-actress to offer. On March 27, 2018, Alia had taken to Instagram and posted a beautiful video that contained short snippets of all the movies that she has worked on, thanking her fans as they were then a 30 million family. Sharing the ‘thank you’ video, Alia had written, “Its been a WONDERFUL journey so far.. But but it's justtttt the beginning.. 30M.” And hardly 15 days after, Alia Bhatt is standing tall with over 31 million followers on her Instagram account! Don’t believe us? Here’s a glimpse of the video and a latest snapshot of Alia's Instagram profile:
With back-to-back hit films in her kitty, Alia Bhatt is now doing all the running about for her upcoming film, Kalank, with her co-star, Varun Dhawan. During one of the promotional sprees with Filmfare, Alia and Varun were asked to suggest Instagram bios for Bollywood celebs. Both Alia and Varun were asked to suggest a suitable bio for lovebirds, Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh. For the Gully Boy actor, Varun had zeroed in on, ‘Budweiser Baba’ and for his wife Deepika, ‘Tu cheez badi hai mast mast’ was finalised. And then came a time when Alia and Varun were asked to suggest a suitable Instagram bio for Ranbir Kapoor if he ever makes his Instagram debut. Varun, at once, looked at Alia and teased her by saying, “Aap boliye, unke baare main jo bolna hai, boliye na.” And it was later, when Alia suggested a bio, probably taking a cue from one of his hit songs, ‘Nadaan Parinda’. Wow, so thoughtful of Alia!
In a recent interview with The Times of India, Alia Bhatt spoke about working with boyfriend, Ranbir Kapoor in their first fantasy film together, Brahmastra. Speaking about the same, the Highway actress had shared, “I have always looked forward to working with Ranbir because I have always admired his work. He is a complete actor. He is so honest; his eyes are so honest that you cannot give a dishonest performance or a false take if you are working with him. Whatever you see of Ranbir on camera, you see none of it off camera. There is no process. He just comes and unleashes himself on camera. There’s an extreme honesty to his performance.” (Also Read: Mira Kapoor Expresses Disbelief On How Did Her 'Big Little' Daughter, Misha Kapoor 'Grow Up So Fast')
We got to see glimpses of Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt’s PDA moments at the Zee Cine Awards and Filmfare Awards, more so the latter, when while bagging the black lady for her terrific performance in Meghna Gulzar’s, Raazi, Alia had blurted out a big, full of love, “I Love You” for her beau, Ranbir during the ‘thank you’ speech. Further talking about the same in the same interview, the Gully Boy actress had said, “What connects Ranbir and I is for me to understand. What I did at that moment of thanking him was purely out of gratitude, and honesty, and it was all heart. Why I feel what I feel is very personal and I don’t think it can be discussed in public domain. This is the first time that I am talking about anything like this and I would like to keep it sacred and simple. Discussing why, why not, how.. gives it unnecessary attention, which could go either way. So, I might as well leave it aside.”
Alia Bhatt is the April cover girl for Filmfare, along with her best buddy and co-star, Varun Dhawan. In a candid chat with the magazine, we got to know about what’s happening inside the Kalank actress’s heart (read Ranbir Kapoor!) as Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor’s 2020 wedding rumours are all over the news and internet! In the similar lines, Alia was asked about her rumoured April roka with beau, Ranbir. To which, she had replied, “The only ‘Roka’ I’m going to is the restaurant in London. There’s no roka happening for me. And why are you putting a year to my marriage?”
Alia Bhatt also revealed her thoughts about tackling a person as ‘difficult’ as Ranbir Kapoor. She had shared, “He’s not difficult. He’s a gem.” She further added, “When I met him for the first time in my life. Again, let me tell you he’s not difficult. He’s a supremely simple person. He’s such a nice human being that I wish I was as good as him. As an actor, as a person, as everything. He’s way better a person thanI am. And about getting married? Well, that’s the only thing that’s irritating right now. Every morning I wake up to the news that I’m getting married. I tell him what the hell. I guess he’s used to it.” (Must Read: Shloka Mehta's Picture In A Beautiful Breezy Floral Lehenga Shows Us How To Ace Weddings In Summer)
