Recently, on the demise of Ranbir Kapoor’s father, veteran actor, Rishi Kapoor, Alia was standing like a rock right by the side of the Kapoor family. Alia was amongst the first few people to reach the hospital and from last rites to puja in Banganga, she had stood by the family. Not just with immediate family, Alia shares a close bond with Ranbir’s cousins, Karisma Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor Khan. Much before Alia began dating, Ranbir, the actress had worked with his cousins, Karisma and Kareena in a magazine photoshoot.
On May 11, 2020, ace designer, Manish Malhotra took to his Instagram handle to share a throwback picture of Alia Bhatt with Ranbir Kapoor’s cousin sisters, Karisma and Kareena from a five-year-old Vogue photoshoot. In the picture, all three ladies look gorgeous with Manish posing standing on a staircase in his black hoodie and blue jeans. The actresses looked royal in the shades of golden. While Alia can be seen wearing a sequenced plunging neck gown, Kareena looks like wearing a bell-sleeved, boat neck sequenced gown, and Karisma can be seen wearing a bustier with a golden skirt. The photoshoot celebrated Manish’s 25 years in the film industry. Along with the picture, Manish wrote, “#throwback Posing with the most amazingly talented favourite girls @therealkarismakapoor @kareenakapoorkhan @aliaabhatt @vogueindia covet shoot 5 years ago celebrating my 25 year journey in the movies #flashback #memories @mmalhotraworld.” Take a look at the picture below:
Coming back to Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor’s love story, when Alia had won the Filmfare Best Actress award for her performance in Meghna Gulzar's Raazi, the actress had accepted her award by confessing her love for her beau, Ranbir. Alia had gone up on the stage and had said, "Tonight is all about love; there, my special one, I love you Ranbir," while Ranbir could not stop smiling. When in an interview, Alia was asked if it was an announcement of sorts? To this Alia had responded, "That was not an announcement. And I don’t need to defend what I did because it was very personal." (Recommended Read: Karan Johar's Kids, Yash And Roohi Want Their Daddy To Remove His Clothes And Take A Shower)
It was in the year 2018 when Ranbir had decided to let the world know about the love of his life. In an interview with the GQ magazine, the actor had 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."
He had further talked about the feeling of new love and had stated, "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 of years back." (Don't Miss: Mahhi Vij's Daughter, Tara Jay Bhanushali Tastes Her First Ice-Cream, Looks Adorable)
