Sisters are the best thing (and even the worst thing!) that has happened to us. They annoy you to the fullest but are the best secret-keepers. Apart from Karisma Kapoor-Kareena Kapoor Khan, Shilpa Shetty Kundra-Shamita Shetty, Sonam Kapoor Ahuja-Rhea Kapoor, Janhvi Kapoor-Khushi Kapoor and many other Bollywood sisters jodi, Bhatt sisters are the one who makes us go on knees with their cuteness.

Yes! We are referring to Mukesh Bhatt’s daughters, Dil Hai Ki Manta Nahin fame actress Pooja Bhatt and Raazi fame Alia Bhatt. Though Alia and Pooja are step-sisters, there is no fakeness in their relationship and they are one of the perfect flag bearers of the Bollywood sisters jodis. On Anupam Kher’s chat show, Kuch Bhi Ho Sakta Hai, Alia Bhatt opened about her relationship with step-sister, Pooja Bhatt.
Kalank actress was quoted as saying, “Recently it’s (her relationship with Pooja) become much better. As a family we’ve grown really close. People always tell me ‘Oh you have a step sister, a step mother’ and all that, but it has never affected me. Our family is very real and we’re very honest with each other. There’s no façade and no fakeness. So, when we spend time together, we genuinely spend time together.”
Alia Bhatt is painting the town red with her adorable PDAs with Brahmastra co-star and long-time crush, Ranbir Kapoor. Before Ranbir confirmed his relationship with Alia and they became the new ‘IT’ couple of B-town, the question "Is Alia Bhatt dating Ranbir Kapoor?" gripped the internet for a long time. In an event in New Delhi, Alia Bhatt’s sister, Pooja Bhatt was asked about Alia and Ranbir’s budding romance.

Trying to dodge the question, Border fame actress Pooja replied, “You got to ask Alia! You can ask me about my personal life. You cannot ask me about my sister’s personal life because I ain’t telling, darling!” When further probed how she tackles such speculations and stories about her baby sister, Alia, Pooja retorted, “Like I took rumours about me. What was true didn’t bother me. What was not true didn’t bother me. And she is a Bhatt after all, and a much-improved Bhatt in that sense.”
Pooja Bhatt went on to say, “I think that this is her time in the sun. We should just let that young girl be and enjoy her life because I think she is doing her job of entertaining India and the world really well. So, what she does or does not do in her personal life is really her problem. How she chooses to lead her life is her problem. My father and me have a different approach to it. She has a different approach to it. So, I think we should just let people be who they are.” (Also Read: Ranbir Kapoor's Former Girlfriend, Deepika Padukone Already Knew That He Is Dating Alia Bhatt)
Confirming his relationship with his crush, Alia, Ranbir admitted to GQ, “It’s really new right now, and I don’t want to overspeak. 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.”
The Sanju actor further revealed how it feels to be in love again, “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.”
On June 10, 2018, Alia was spotted on a dinner date with Ranbir’s family including his sister, Riddhima Kapoor Sahni and his niece, Samara Sahni. Alia was holding Samara’s hand while they exited from the five-star high-end eatery in Bandra, and they both looked adorable twinning in white. A few days back, Riddhima gifted a beautiful bracelet to her brother, Ranbir’s lady-love, Alia.
