When our crush becomes our partner for life and their families love us more than they love their child, life seems utopian! Both of you may have your own past, but what matters is how you shape your present with your one true love. That’s exactly how we would like to describe the current relationship status of one of the hottest couples of the Tinseltown, Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor. Ranbir, ever since his Bollywood entry, has been grabbing headlines for his infamous affairs and splits with A-listed B-town divas, apart from his acting and good looks. On the other hand, Alia’s relationship with her SOTY co-star, Sidharth Malhotra wasn’t quite a hide and seek affair too!

But looks like destiny had other plans for the couple and Alia Bhatt’s self-admitted crush, Ranbir Kapoor was roped in by Ayan Mukerji to work together in a mystical fantasy, Brahmastra. How Ranbir was made to be a part of the film is another story altogether, but the best part is the film set surely played Cupid for Ranbir and Alia. Both their families admire one another and we would often see them spending time with each other. It was on June 21, 2019, when shutterbugs had grabbed the most of the merry sight, Alia and Ranbir twinning in white as they headed off to spend some Kapoor time Rishi and Neetu in New York, where he is currently undergoing the last phase of his cancer treatment.
About Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor’s visit to New York for a Kapoor famjam, a source had shared with Filmfare, “They were with Rishi and Neetu for New Year celebrations as well. This time, Ranbir’s sister Riddhima is also there so it’s going to be a family reunion. RK and Alia will be returning to Mumbai in a few days to resume work on their film.” And just a while back, came about some ethereal pictures from a cosy family meet comprising of Alia Bhatt, Ranbir Kapoor, Rishi Kapoor, Neetu Kapoor, Riddhima Kapoor Sahni and Samaira Kapoor.

Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt were spotted on the ghats of Varanasi on the first week of June as they had spent some time there for their Brahmastra shoot. As per an India Today report, Alia had suffered from some physical ailments and her mini New York getaway would provide as a much-required break for this B-town diva. She shared, "I had an extreme intestinal infection before I left for the Varanasi schedule and since the shooting was very hectic and the heat was unbearable, things didn’t improve. Making my condition worse were the shooting schedules. We were shooting during the night-time and my body clock went for a toss. Now I’ve been asked to take it easy and to take break for a little while, let my condition settle to normal and then resume work." Alia had further added, “Leaving Mumbai is the only way I can get some rest. Work doesn’t stop when one is in Mumbai.” (Must Read: Sonam Kapoor Ahuja Thanks Anand S Ahuja For Honeymoon-Cum-Birthday Trip, Says It Was Worth The Wait)

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 than I 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.”

It’s beautiful. I’m walking on stars and clouds right now. The best part is that we’re two individuals, who are living our own professional lives in its full form right now. He’s shooting continuously. So am I. It’s not a situation where you’ll see us constantly together. That’s the true mark of a comfortable relationship. Nazar na lage.
